Essential Buick Parts Overview

There are a few different kinds of car parts to understand before you choose the parts that will make up your prized Buick vehicle. Repairs are normal and to be expected as your vehicle ages. Be sure you know what kind of car parts you are comfortable with before repairs are needed.

OEM parts, or Original Equipment Manufacturer parts, are precisely designed to fit inside of the Buick you drive. These parts are made only for Buicks and are guaranteed to fit and perform just like they would when the car first drove off the factory floor upon its assembly.

Aftermarket parts are made in a mass volume and can fit into many different cars at the same time. The companies who make aftermarket parts are not dedicated to one kind of vehicle, and instead make parts that can be applied to as many different kinds of vehicles as possible.

Aftermarket parts are less expensive than OEM parts because they are mass produced and can be used widely and indiscriminately. However, these parts are less reliable than a part that was specifically designed to make your exact car perform at its peak, like OEM parts deliver.

You can also look into recycled parts as the most affordable parts option. These parts are salvaged from a dismantled Buick Envision or Buick Enclave. Use these parts with caution, as there is no guarantee of how much useful life is left on recycled parts.
