An automotive vehicle is a complicated machine, with many parts, both big and small, operating together to let it perform at its best. No matter how often you use your car, truck, or SUV, there comes a time where you will need to replace a part that is no longer working as intended. Here at Koons Woodbridge Hyundai, we offer a broad selection of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts to make it easy for you to find the parts you need for your vehicle today.

When to Shop for New Parts

Whether you own a car, truck, or SUV, you need to know when to replace certain parts in your vehicle so that it can continue to operate at its best. Purchase replacement parts promptly to ensure that you avoid any damage from your non-functional parts and that your vehicle continues to operate efficiently and safely.

How do you know when to replace automotive parts? If you notice any of the following warning signs, it may be a sign that it's time to purchase new parts from a reputable automotive part and service provider:

  • When you reach mileage limits. Some parts of your vehicle, such as your oil filter and tires, come with recommended mileage limits. Continuing to use your parts beyond these limits can cause damage to other parts of your vehicle that rely on them. With a timely replacement, your vehicle will continue to perform at its peak. This will help to keep you safe and save you money on future repairs.
  • When performance drops. If you have owned your vehicle for a while, you likely have a good sense of how it performs daily. For example, you know what to expect from your vehicle in terms of gas mileage and acceleration. If you notice that your vehicle is no longer meeting the standards you are used to, this may be a sign that one or more parts are failing. Examine your vehicle or take it to a service center for a professional assessment so you can identify any parts in need of replacement.
  • When your vehicle looks, sounds, or feels different. Use your senses to identify potential parts concerns with your vehicle. If your vehicle begins making strange noises, like clicking or squeaking, or it is producing visual indicators of concern like a smokey hood, this is a strong sign that you need parts replacement. The feel of driving can also indicate concerns. For example, you may notice that your vehicle is harder to turn or pulling to the side when you try to drive straight. A checkup can allow you to determine what's wrong and replace any parts that need it.
  • When a light comes on. Modern vehicles include a range of internal sensors that can identify problems within their various systems. When your vehicle's warning systems identify an area for concern, they trigger a warning light, which is usually located on your dashboard. If a new light has turned on in your vehicle, that's a sign that something is wrong, and it needs your attention. Taking your vehicle to a service station or performing a check-up of your own can allow you to identify what parts need to be replaced.

Why OEM Parts Are the Best Option

When shopping for parts, it can be tempting to shop for aftermarket manufacturers since they may make parts available at discounted rates. Although buying aftermarket parts can provide short-term savings, it is rarely the best decision for your vehicle. When you buy OEM parts, you can shop knowing that you're getting parts that are designed specifically for the vehicle you drive. This allows you to get the maximum benefit out of each part that you purchase.

While you save money on each repair or replacement with aftermarket parts,  it ends up costing you more money overall. Your vehicle's manufacturer recommends OEM parts because those parts offer the same reliability and longevity as your vehicle's original parts. If you purchase aftermarket parts at a discount, you may have higher repair costs in the long run since lower-quality replacement parts having shorter lifespans. In other words, you will need work done on your vehicle more frequently if you use aftermarket parts.
