OEM parts are often produced by the same companies that manufacture aftermarket parts. The biggest difference is that OEM parts are designed for a vehicle that is brand new with absolutely no wear and tear, usually by the lowest bidder. This is not meant to imply cheap quality, rather, that the part is designed to meet the minimum standard stipulated by the vehicle’s engineers to meet performance, emission and government safety standards.
Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, are produced with equal or stronger types of materials, serve the same purpose as the original, and often have much longer warranty periods. Because performance requirements for a vehicle with significant mileage are much higher, it takes a better engineered part to return the vehicle to original operating standard.
