Every car needs parts eventually. The problem is that the automobile industry does not make it easy to understand what kind of parts you should be buying. For example, if you need a new window regulator then you have to find out that you need one in the first place. You, then, have to figure out what that part you are holding in your hands is called. Finally, you have to decipher what OEM means and what aftermarket means. After you get all that done then you get your part. Obviously, it is good to have some background in automobile repair beforehand but very few lay people do. You are going to have to learn all of this on the fly and you will probably have to learn it again with a whole new part later then it goes down. It becomes a cycle until you either trade in or sell the car or learn all the pieces of your car and you know what you need before you need to start looking. 

You may already be at the second part because you have owned this car for awhile. You may be in the process of getting there, however, if you are at the beginning then some good advice is all that you need to handle the aftermarket vs OEM 2009 Malibu parts question. The problem is that the automobile industry mistakenly believes that you already know the difference. It might be because most of the people they deal with are already vehicle repair literate. If you are not a person who is "into" cars then there is no way you could have learned the terminology before encountering it when you need parts. It is a real shame because knowing the difference is a fundamental knowledge set needed for car repair. It would be akin to trying to read and not knowing what an A or B sound like or look like. You would be guessing and making up words that do not exist or are inappropriate for the situation. You need a certain level of knowledge to be successful at vehicle repair and the difference between OEM and aftermarket is fundamental knowledge you need to have.

Aftermarket parts are parts that were developed after your car went on the market. The real meaning of that sentence means that the aftermarket parts company did not have contact with the vehicle manufacturer during the production of the car. They developed the part without first-hand knowledge of the specs. First-hand means that they were not given the specifications by the vehicle manufacturer with the understanding that they were going to develop parts for that car for the vehicle manufacturer. The standards by which they adhere are strictly set forth by themselves and no standards from the vehicle manufacturer are used. It is the reason why OEM is considered higher quality on the whole. The parts were developed for the vehicle manufacturer to the exact specifications. They were literally made to go into the vehicle.
