Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Details

If it comes time to purchase a part for maintenance or repairs on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you may be considering using Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts. When you look at the price tag, aftermarket parts tend to be more affordable. However, that doesn’t mean they’re a better value. The components in our vehicles have been designed and crafted by engineers who make precision their first priority, and Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts simply aren’t held to the same standards. Find out more about what makes Mercedes-Benz OEM parts rise above generic auto parts with Star Motors of Ottawa Mercedes-Benz. 

Benefits to Choosing Genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts

  • When you opt for genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM parts, you’re making a decision to utilize the same equipment that trained engineers employ at the factory. 
  • The Mercedes-Benz Parts Limited Warranty backs all Mercedes-Benz OEM parts, so you know you’re protected if there’s an issue. 
  • You won’t waste time sifting through the endless variations and options in aftermarket parts. Drivers who use our catalogue to order parts online will be able to find what they’re looking for right away, saving time and energy. 
  • Many aftermarket parts are made of lower quality materials, meaning they may be more prone to failure that genuine Mercedes-Benz parts.
