What are OEM Parts?

When completing vehicle maintenance, you might be considering using Acura OEM parts, but what are those parts made of and how do they differ from others? “OEM” stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. These parts are the same equipment that your new Acura vehicle was originally produced at the factory. One advantage to OEM car parts is that they have gone through a series of tests to ensure that they meet the manufacturer’s quality standards. On the other hand, aftermarket parts are generally more affordable in price. Unlike OEM parts, aftermarket parts are designed by a third party company and are often able to be used in more than one specific model.
