Helping you with your new or used vehicle doesn't stop when you purchase a car from our team here at Auto Park Buick GMC in Plymouth, IN.  For drivers from South Bend, our team of certified technicians can help you get your vehicle back on the roads in one piece.

While there is a wide range of generic aftermarket parts available for your Buick or GMC vehicle, it's not the same as using OEM parts in your vehicle. When you bring in your vehicle to our service team, you will have the peace of mind knowing that we will use OEM parts to handle the repair.

What are OEM parts?

  • Also called original equipment manufacturer parts
  • Created and sent out by the same manufacturer that created the factory-installed parts in your Buick or GMC vehicle
  • Built to the same factory specifications using the same equipment and materials
  • Designed to work exactly with your vehicle

What are the differences between OEM and generic parts?

  • Generic parts are designed to fit a broader range of vehicles and brands. This can mean that the part may not work exactly as expected
  • Generic parts can vary in quality between manufacturers in terms of wear and durability
  • Only OEM parts are used in our dealership for repairs on your Buick or GMC vehicle

What are some of the OEM parts available for your GMC or Buick vehicle?

  • Maintenance accessories: These can include light bulbs, batteries, oil filters, air filters, and wiper blades, among others
  • Brakes parts: These can include brake pads and brake discs depending on what you need to repair your vehicle
  • Engine accessories: Spark plug replacements are a regular part of maintenance while components such as gaskets can aid in an engine repair

Advantages of choosing OEM parts?

  • Knowledgeable service team to install the OEM parts and get your vehicle on the road again
  • Warranty coverage: OEM parts are typically covered by a limited warranty. Using aftermarket or generic parts may void your warranty depending on the part while an OEM replacement helps keep it valid
  • Parts built specifically for your Buick or GMC vehicle: Our parts department will make sure that you have the right parts for the repair or maintenance so that it fits properly
  • Consistent performance: These OEM parts are designed to operate at the same specifications as the original part in your GMC or Buick so that you have the same level of performance once the repair is completed

When to buy OEM parts?

  • You hear strange noises coming from your vehicle, such as squeaking, whining, and other noises that can signify a worn out or damaged component
  • Warning lights: these can include lights such as the check engine and can be a sign to bring in your vehicle for a service visit
  • Routine maintenance: Using OEM parts for routine maintenance such as changing belts, filters, or other components can help ensure that your vehicle continues to stay on the road
