When your Acura is facing some mechanical problems, you want the situation fixed as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it seems. Both genuine parts, also known as original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and aftermarket parts claim that they’re the best for the job, and many times you may opt for frugality. Don’t do it. Genuine Acura parts have been rigorously tested by the manufacturer to ensure their mechanical integrity, and anything less may end up costing you more in the long run.

Easing the Choice

One of the top reasons to go with genuine parts is that it’s far easier to choose the part without having to assess the durability or the integrity of the part. Most often, the OEM part comes in just one form, making the decision simple and eliminating any misgivings that you’re choosing the wrong one.


When you buy an aftermarket part, you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get. While many of these manufacturers include a warranty for peace of mind, it still doesn’t solve the hassle that comes with a faulty part. Acura genuine parts are far more likely to work for an extended period of time because of their rigorous tests, and if that isn’t enough, Acura offers warranties. When installed by a dealer, each Acura genuine part comes with a 1-year, 12,000-mile limited warranty, while Acura accessories have a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty.

In some instances, using aftermarket parts instead of OEM parts may void the 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty or the 4-year, 50,000-mile limited factory warranty that comes with each new Acura.

Quality Assurance

Another positive aspect of going with Acura OEM parts is that you’re using the very part that originally came on your Acura. Because the part is the same, you won’t have to worry about uneven wear or a problem with the part interacting with other components of your vehicle. The consistency of these parts offer a certain assurance of quality, as well as peace of mind.


When you need a specific part for your car, genuine OEM parts are often easier to locate, especially at a dealership. Because these parts are readily available, you can get the repair done more quickly and get back into your normal routine. Even if you have to wait a few days or weeks for the part, you still don’t have to sift through aftermarket parts to locate one that has stellar reviews from real mechanics or critics with a knowledge about a certain product. Either way, you’ll always know what you’re getting with genuine Acura parts.
