When you take your 2020 Honda Pilot to a car service location for new parts, you’ll often have a choice between OEM parts and aftermarket parts. Many drivers near New Britain, CT do not know that there is a difference between these types of parts and will automatically opt for the cheaper option. However, here at our Honda parts center at Schaller Honda, our team of mechanics and Honda dealers will be eager to tell you about the advantages of using authentic OEM parts.

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and OEM parts are made by the vehicle’s manufacturer. That means that if you choose to replace a certain part for your 2020 Honda Pilot, it will be the exact same part that came with the vehicle. Here at Schaller Honda, we only have authentic OEM parts in stock at our parts center, and we would encourage using them for a number of reasons. Here are a few of them:

  • Greater quality assurance: A new OEM part should work exactly the same as the one that you are replacing. The replacement part is the same as what the vehicle was manufactured with and provides peace of mind when it comes to identical performance.
  • Easier to choose: If you go to our parts center and ask for any part, you will only have one brand to choose from, eliminating time-consuming comparison shopping.
  • Warranty included: Unlike aftermarket parts, most OEM parts are backed up with a comprehensive warranty.

If you know what parts you want for your 2020 Honda Pilot or other Honda vehicle, you can order them directly from our website. We look forward to helping you in our parts center.
