Mopar vs Aftermarket Auto Parts
Here at Gupton Motors, we want our customers to save money wherever they can. When it comes to auto parts, however, we highly encourage you to spend a few more dollars on genuine Mopar replacement parts rather than aftermarket versions. At first, it may seem like you are paying more money for essentially the same product. But Mopar is more than just a brand name; its a guarantee from the OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, that their parts were designed specifically for your automobile. And while you will pay more today for your replacement auto parts, you’ll enjoy greater savings down the road, as well as peace of mind from using longer-lasting, more dependable car parts.

Mopar Auto Parts
Mopar, which is shorthand for motor parts, is a division of FIAT Chrysler Automobiles that designs and manufactures auto parts for all FCA vehicles, including FIAT, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram. As the certified OEM car parts producer, Mopar can manufacture replacement auto parts that are identical to those used on the assembly line.
Drivers who choose Mopar auto parts are also in line for a better overall shopping experience. Since you’re only considering one brand, it’s easy to find the car part you need; just contact or visit your local OEM dealership. Mopar car parts typically include a lengthy warranty of 12 months, and if you have your parts replaced at a dealership, they will usually guarantee the labor as well. And if you ever decide to sell or trade in your vehicle, a history of using Mopar replacement parts could help you recoup significantly more resale value.

Aftermarket parts are designed and produced for a variety of car brands, and they are often marketed as universal solutions. However, these parts rarely fit with the same precision as intended by the OEM and they may not be as durable. Aftermarket parts may even require modifications, which launch a different set of headaches. Furthermore, aftermarket parts come with a very short warranty or none at all, and they could possibly void your vehicle’s warranty. If you decide to go with an aftermarket part, make sure you research your options and you’re comfortable with the risks of an aftermarket part.
After you’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on purchasing a vehicle, you owe it to yourself to protect that investment by opting for the more expensive, but higher-quality and longer-lasting Mopar auto parts. These parts are held to the highest standards of quality by the OEM, and they’re guaranteed to function as well, if not better than, your car’s original parts. With the higher risk of failure, the potential to void your car’s warranty and decrease its resale value, the initial savings of aftermarket parts could pale in comparison to the long-term costs. And the peace of mind from OEM parts can be priceless.
