Any time you start talking parts interior or exterior then you have to talk about OEM vs aftermarket because it is an important topic that the general consumer does not understand but really should. Understanding the difference between OEM and aftermarket could be an essential piece of the upgrading or replacement puzzle that every owner needs to manage. Why? It is because of the quality of the part can be drastically different and the quality of the part directly affects how successful the replacement or upgrade in the immediate and long-term future of the vehicle. The choice between an OEM Buick Enclave 2013 interior part or an aftermarket part could be the choice between a working vehicle and a non-functioning vehicle in the future. It depends on what part is being replaced and how essential that piece is to the function of the automobile.
Aftermarket means that the part maker does not have, in general, a relationship with the vehicle manufacturer. it is this different that separates it from OEM parts. It also means that the aftermarket parts maker does not have to adhere to the standards set forth by the vehicle manufacturer. They set their own standards and it is why aftermarket parts quality varies wildly from very good to very bad. It is up to the part maker to police themselves when it comes to the production and quality of the part. You may get a part that is perfect and beyond the standards of the vehicle manufacturer or you might get a company that produces a part that is made for profit and has many corners cut to make that happen. Buying an aftermarket part should involve research into the company and checking to see if they make quality parts otherwise it takes trial and error along with luck that the part does not damage the vehicle when it is used.
OEM is a manufacturer who does have a relationship with the vehicle manufacturer or they are the vehicle manufacturer. OEM in the automobile industry could mean either of the two scenarios could apply. Other industries have a specific meaning of OEM which is that the original manufacturer of the product is the supplier. For example, if we are talking cereal then there is one only company making the cereal and the rest are knock-offs or aftermarket cereals to keep with the automobile industry vernacular. OEM means that the vehicle manufacturer has set standards for the production of the part and the quality of the part. The parts must meet or exceed the specification in order to be called OEM. It also means that that the company was the one the vehicle manufacturer trusted when making your vehicle. Therefore, OEM means that the Buick Enclave 2013 interior parts you receive will work from straight from the box and will fit your system. They will also, in general, not void any warranties you may have in place, you should check on the truth of that statement, however, in general, OEM parts do not void warranties. Make sure to ask Buick before assuming anything, however.
