Investing in an Acura requires luxury maintenance, and the team at Mike Hale Acura has genuine Acura parts for all models in the Acura lineup. What are the benefits in choosing genuine Acura OEM parts over aftermarket parts, though? Research the differences here at Mike Hale Acura; we serve drivers in Salt Lake City and Draper.

Genuine Acura OEM Parts: A Rundown

As drivers around Orem know, Acura parts are engineered for maximum performance, efficiency, and durability. OEM parts stand for “original equipment manufacturer” parts, which mean if you need a replacement part you can be sure these ones were specifically designed and approved by the manufacturer. Among the many advantages that come with genuine Acura parts, you can look forward to:

  • Warranty – Most Acura OEM parts come with a standard 12-month/12,000-mile warranty, so if the part breaks through no fault of your own while driving on wintry roads, Acura will replace it for you.
  • Fit – Acura OEM parts are fit specifically to your Acura MDX or Acura RDX, which means you can look forward to optimal performance for all driving conditions.
  • Reliability – Because OEM parts have been approved by the manufacturer, Provo drivers can look forward to the same level of long-term dependability you expect from this manufacturer.

Aftermarket Parts

Unlike genuine Acura parts, aftermarket parts have not been developed or approved by Acura. This means it’s hard to be sure of the quality of the part in terms of performance or durability. Additionally, some aftermarket parts don’t even come with a warranty. While aftermarket parts may come at a cheaper cost up front, it’s best to pay a little bit more for the added peace of mind.
