Parts built by the exact same manufacturer that made the ones originally installed on your vehicle when it was built are known as “OEM”, signifying they are made by the original equipment manufacturer. Whether they were built by the automaker themselves or contracted to an outside supplier to build, they are fully authorized by the carmaker as “genuine” or “authentic”. The expression “OE” (signifying “original equipment”) is used in the business just as often to signify a genuine or authentic part. Dealership parts departments and manufacturers use the term “OEM” when they refer to parts the vehicle manufacturer authorizes.
New car manufacturers typically provide bumper-to-bumper warranties for three or four years on newer cars, and may continue coverage of certain items for up to six years on vehicles bought with a Certified Pre-Owned warranty. Additionally, some powertrain warranties cover running gear such as internal engine, transmission, and drivetrain components for longer amounts of time. When warranty coverage is involved, new car manufacturers always want the failed parts shipped back to them. They will automatically reject coverage if a failed part is an aftermarket one, or the part in question failed because of a connected aftermarket part elsewhere.
