Benefits of Using Kia OEM Parts
Every time we repair a car at our dealership, we choose to use original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, parts on the car. Big parts and small parts alike, we choose the reliability and functionality of OEM parts. But why? What does “original equipment manufacturer parts” even mean? Well, it means exactly what it says -- the parts are made by the original manufacturer of the vehicle. In this case, Kia is manufacturing the replacement parts for Kia vehicles.
There are several reasons we choose to use OEM parts at Kia Boardman. First, OEM replacement parts will last as long as the other parts on your car. For instance, if you’ve been in an accident and replace your door panel with a secondary market part, it may not last as long as the rest of the car. This can pose obvious safety concerns, and it simply isn’t practical. Secondly, OEM parts will fit your car exactly as the automaker intended, and it will function exactly the same as well. This becomes more important the more critical the part is; you should not replace your windshield with secondary market glass. Thirdly (and related to the first two), your car’s resale value will suffer if non-Kia parts show up on your vehicle’s CarFax report.

Some Secondary Market Parts to Watch Out For
If you see parts with the term “aftermarket” attached to them, that means they are not original equipment manufacturer parts. They may work on your car, or they may fit imperfectly, wear down quickly, or worse, fail to function as advertised.
You should also look out for parts labeled as “salvage,” as they have simply been pulled off of old cars and may have issues that you can’t find. At the very least, they are not covered by a Kia warranty; OEM parts are covered by warranty.
