There is nothing more compatible with your Kia than Genuine Kia Parts. In fact, the secret to keeping your vehicle running like new for decades is ensuring that you invest in quality OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts, which are the exact same components that your vehicle was built with. They provide a precise fit and finish when repairs are completed, and offer greater quality, safety and durability than cheaper aftermarket parts.

Benefits of OEM Parts vs Aftermarket Parts


OEM parts are produced by the same manufacturers who were originally contracted to produce the parts in your vehicle. Kia is known for being meticulous with its vehicles and having engineers perfect the quality inside and out. You can bet that Kia holds every OEM supplier they work with to world-class standards of quality control as a contingency.

Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, could be produced in an overseas plant on equipment with little to no quality control. When the consistency of the raw materials change and batches need to be reformulated, there may be many defective products produced as the manufacturer experiments. These foreign manufacturers may even be in violation of patent laws that are difficult to enforce in foreign countries. The ease of selling these lower-quality reproductions boils down to the convenience of the internet, tempting the eyes with vague descriptions, photos and low prices.

OEM parts are made using specially formulated alloys forged under pressure, the strongest ABS plastics, and high-quality rubber that holds up to extreme operating conditions. Aftermarket parts can be made of inferior metals that may be gravity forged and have no strength, flimsy plastics, and cheap synthetic rubbers that are mostly plastic.

Warranty and Support

OEM Brakes and Parts

Our OEM Kia parts come with an industry-standard warranty. This guards against premature wear and failure by providing the option of a replacement should a repair be needed.

When you shop for aftermarket parts, there may not be a warranty or it could be very limited. You may be able to return these parts immediately if they were never installed and are plainly defective on their face. However, the cost of shipping can make the return of heavy items impractical.

Proper Fit and Ease of Replacement

Our OEM Kia parts are also precisely calibrated to work with your vehicle. Our service department can find parts quickly in our database for your vehicle by limiting the range to those specifically used in your vehicle's VIN number production run. You will never have to worry about investing a lot of time and money in installing the part only to find out that it is incompatible or defective.
