You may have heard the terms “genuine manufacturer parts,” “OEM parts,” or “aftermarket parts” before. The main difference between them is simple. Quality. The factory-trained mechanics at our Indiana car service center will help you choose the right car parts for your Honda model when the time comes. Take a look at what we have to offer and keep your Honda running smoothly.

Original Equipment Manufacturer Parts

“OEM” stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer.” These are the exact replacements of the original parts used in your model and are designed by the same brand manufacturer that made your vehicle. These Honda parts are easy to locate, destined to work properly, and are backed by a warranty guarantee.

Aftermarket Parts

Aftermarket parts are the parts you’ll find at auto parts stores as well as from independent mechanics around Johnstown and Kittanning. Though these are less expensive than the OEM parts, there’s such a vast selection, you’ll have to be thorough to find the right part for your model. Make sure to do your research on these parts as they aren’t usually backed by a warranty and can sometimes negatively affect your model’s original warranty.

Genuine Honda Parts

Each genuine Honda part is specifically designed for your Honda model. This guarantees a superior quality and fit, corrosion resistance, safety, and warranty coverage. These parts are the only ones that are covered under your Honda warranty. When you’re in need of a new part, it’s best to go this route for a more accurate fit.
