You probably never think about who makes auto parts – until it’s time to replace something on your vehicle. Whether your car is in the shop because of an accident or you need to replace worn-out or broken parts, you may be wondering if you should choose aftermarket parts. What are aftermarket parts, and why should you choose them?
We make choices every day about what to buy, and who to buy it from – do you buy this brand of mustard or that one? Do you choose cable or dish or streaming? But what if the choice of what auto parts you could use on your vehicle were taken away from you?
Have you ever wandered into an auto parts store, or had your mechanic ask you which parts you’d like put on your vehicle and wondered “Why do we need all these different parts?” There are good reasons that different companies make replacement parts – and why you should look into alternative parts over OEMs.
