Most car parts will need to be replaced at some point during the vehicle’s life. Though you have a choice, we always highly recommend OEM Mitsubishi parts in Riverhead, NY over third-party aftermarket parts. Find out why OEM components are so beneficial.
OEM parts are made by the same auto manufacturer that made your car. This ensures a 100% compatible fit.
Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, are intended to be a one-size-fits-all across multiple car models. In most cases, aftermarket parts are made by independent developers that aren’t even in the automotive industry.
The allure of aftermarket parts is that they’re often cheaper. While this is generally true, OEM parts will actually save you more money in the long run.
How so? For one, OEM parts tend to last longer. Secondly, OEM parts keep your warranty in good standing.
Aftermarket parts void your warranty. This means subsequent repairs come out of your pocket. In this sense, OEM parts save you money, albeit indirectly.
Brand New Parts
All OEM parts are new and come straight from the factory. Aftermarket parts aren’t always new. In some instances, they’re actually parts that have been refurbished, with the parts coming from discarded vehicles salvaged for their components.
Get your car repaired with OEM parts and by a Mitsubishi-certified technician. If you choose aftermarket parts, you have to go to an independent auto shop.
This means you get a general auto mechanic repairing your car using a general replacement part.
Make an appointment with Riverhead Mitsubishi to schedule an inspection. We perform maintenance on all Mitsubishi models, including the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. As you can probably guess, we only use OEM parts on all repairs.
