The Importance of Genuine MOPAR Parts

If you've ever been tempted to purchase aftermarket generic car parts because they seem less expensive than certified auto parts, consider what the expense of a new car is when your current car breaks down before its expected lifetime is over. The fact is, generic car parts might be okay for certain functions, but there's no way to know if they are suitable for the make and model of the vehicle you drive. At best, generic parts are likely going to have to be replaced sooner than the appropriate OEM parts specified by the manufacturer causing more expensive over time, at worst they can cause further damage to surrounding parts or the engine as a whole.

Why You Need OEM Parts

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are recommended for specific reasons according to how the engineer designed the vehicle, and MOPAR parts always meet those specifications. They fit without alteration and are designed with specifications according to how they work within the overall set of vehicle systems. Something as simple as an air filter, for example, might look the same as what a different model car uses but be tighter or looser according to the air intake needs of your car. Even though theoretically a part from another car or generic manufacturer does fit your vehicle, it may not meet the design needs you have.

What Can Happen if You Use Lesser Parts

As previously mentioned, generic parts aren't always built as well as certified parts and don't last as long. This can be a nuisance when you have to keep replacing the part, but can also be more expensive over time, especially with larger repairs or maintenance projects which take a technician longer to conduct. Even if you're willing to tolerate the nuisance of having repairs made more often, and even if you find it easier to pay less for the part more often during the life of the car, using the wrong parts can cause further damage to the vehicle. To resume the air filter example, if it blocks air passage or allows more grime into the air passageway than intended, the engine is going to have to work harder than it was meant to and break down sooner.
