With Regards To Volvo Parts, You've Got A Choice To Make In cases when you have a part or parts failure and aren't totally sold on getting a used part, there are three types of new replacement parts which you can purchase for your Volvo. Authentic Volvo, parts, OEM Volvo parts and aftermarket Volvo parts are the three different kinds of parts. The parts that were originally installed in an automobile when it made its way down the assembly line are called genuine auto parts. While they have the car manufacturer’s logo on them, they are typically made by another company, as auto manufacturers make use of hundreds of different companies to manufacture parts for them. OEM auto parts are much like genuine auto parts in that they were originally created for a specific car. The only variation is that they don’t have the car maker’s logo on them. As for aftermarket auto parts, they are parts that aren’t made by the original manufacturer. "Copycat" parts is an accurate way to consider them. Your exact situation and interests will go a long way to determining the type of part that you purchase. Money and choosing the part that will leave the smallest dent in your wallet are in many cases what the decision depends upon. The most cost effective auto parts that you can buy aren't always going to be genuine auto parts. In fact, more often than not, they tend to be the most expensive parts. They have the Volvo logo which is the reason that such parts are frequently priced higher than alternative parts. Essentially, you end up paying extra for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you're getting something which is stamped with Volvo’s approval. That being said, OEM parts and aftermarket parts can have just as much integrity as genuine parts and are commonly priced lower. So, you could be wondering, when is it worthwhile to buy genuine Volvo parts instead of purchasing OEM or aftermarket parts? In the event that your Volvo requires a repair, in certain situations Volvo parts can actually be the most affordable parts available. You may even pay absolutely nothing for these parts. Is there a catch? They need to still carry their warranty. Needless to say it is a great way to go when you can have something replaced free of charge as opposed to paying for a replacement. As such, a good time to use genuine Volvo parts is when they are still under warranty. Worth noting is that manufacturer warranties don’t always express that new genuine parts should be used. Generally, it is up to the manufacturer to decide whether or not a new part is needed. Thankfully, genuine auto parts that have been rebuilt, remanufactured, refurbished, or reconditioned are frequently comparable to new parts with regards to performance and reliability. So if your Volvo is under warranty and needs a part replacement, determine if genuine auto parts are covered by the warranty. Go that route when they are. If you are interested in locating the cheapest part, it is worth considering the other options. Used or recycled parts are typically the cheapest parts that are offered, so they are definitely worth keeping in mind, especially if you have an older vehicle and are just looking for a part to keep it running. Often a used or recycled part that hasn’t been refurbished or reconditioned won’t last as long as a new part or a refurbished or rebuilt part; you get what you pay for after all. When you need to repair your Volvo, consider how the differences between genuine, OEM and Ride Accessories
