What Are OEM Parts and Why Are They Better?

At Mercedes-Benz of Burlington, our primary concern is always the satisfaction of our customers. Beyond our stunning selection of new Mercedes-Benz cars that are sure to wow you with their magnetic performance and luxurious looks, we offer so much more. Our dealership can be your one-stop shop for all your luxury vehicle needs, including when you need quality OEM parts for your car.

OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer” and means that the part was made by your vehicle’s manufacturer, so it is exactly like the one that came with your Mercedes-Benz C-Class. If you’re looking for the peace of mind that comes with an assurance of quality, OEM parts are the way to go.

It’s easy to find out which OEM part you need at our Mercedes-Benz parts center because it is identical to the one that came with your car. On the other hand, there are many aftermarket parts out there and they vary widely in quality. Drivers are often tempted by the inexpensive nature of aftermarket parts, but while they might be inexpensive up front, you can’t count on their quality in the long run.

Aftermarket parts aren’t made to fit and function within your vehicle the way that OEM parts are. You won’t be able to depend on them for the performance and efficiency you expect from your car. Because their quality is questionable and longevity not guaranteed, you may actually end up paying more in the long run.

At our Mercedes-Benz dealership, we believe your exceptional car deserves exceptional treatment. Not only do we stock an inventory of high-quality parts at our Mercedes-Benz parts department, but the expert technicians at our service center can install them for you. Our service and parts departments are open six days a week for your convenience, from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM on Saturday.

Your life can’t run smoothly if your car can’t get you where you need to go. Depend on our Mercedes-Benz service center and parts department to keep your care in pristine condition. You’ll find us conveniently located at 80 Cambridge St, where we hope to see you soon!
