Nissan OEM Parts
Granted, a Nissan doesn't need repair very often but when it does, the question comes up: should one use Nissan OEM parts or are aftermarket versions satisfactory?
Whether you prefer Nissan factory parts or their aftermarket counterparts, you'll always get the best deals at PartsGeek.com because our Nissan OEM parts catalog offers the lowest prices on both original Nissan parts and aftermarket components at some of the lowest prices in the industry.
In the meantime, let's take a look at the Great Debate among auto buffs whether it's best to stick to Nissan OEM parts or if its really okay to use aftermarket replacements. Almost everyone has some pretty strong opinions on the subject but in our experience, it's not so cut and dried.
OEM Nissan parts are those that are manufactured by the same company that builds the vehicle (in most cases though in these days of unending "outsourcing," sometimes the actual origins of a given OEM part is anyone's guess). Should you take your Nissan vehicle to an authorized dealer for servicing or repairs, there is little doubt that the work will be done with only original Nissan parts. This generally costs a bit more, though a lot of people are willing to pay that extra amount. Now, if you do your own servicing and repairs, you'll spend less by ordering from our Web-based Nissan OEM parts catalog, since our online business model allows us to offer substantially lower prices on Nissan factory parts. However, you may not necessarily need to do that but read on...
When the work on a Nissan vehicle is done at an independent shop, they'll probably use aftermarket Nissan parts, mainly because they cost less. That is, unless you insist on OEM Nissan parts and you can be sure you'll pay extra for them. Of course, when it comes to insurance work, you may have little choice but to settle for aftermarket parts, because insurers are always looking for ways to cut costs. This may not necessarily be a bad thing, however.
It's true that the quality of aftermarket parts can vary from one manufacturer to another, but in most cases, these parts are quite reliable and if you order from PartsGeek, you'll get a one-year warranty on everything we sell. In fact, in a great many cases, aftermarket components may actually be of a higher caliber than Nissan OEM parts because when the engineers at such a company take a look at the original, they often find ways to improve on the original design. While this doesn't always happen, there are other factors namely powerful market pressures (a lot of companies competing for the consumer dollar) that tend to serve as motivation to provide good quality products at a reasonable cost.
There's also the issue of availability. While original equipment may not always be there for you when you need it, aftermarket parts tend to be in plentiful supply.
Whatever your Nissan parts needs, you can count on PartsGeek.com to have what you need, when you need it. If you don't see it in our online catalog, we don't have it and if it's listed, you can place your order with confidence that it will be on its way to you within twenty-four hours.
