Why Buy OEM Parts?

The Benefits Of Genuine OEM Parts

When it's time to repair or replace your Volvo's parts, there are plenty of reasons why we encourage you to stick with the OEM as much as possible.

Here are five quick reasons why you should purchase OEM Volvo parts over third party.

  1. Quality - Buying OEM parts over aftermarket parts is sort of like purchasing the brand-name over the generic. Yes, sometimes the cheaper version is comparable to the more expensive brand, but, most of the time, you're choosing price over quality. While that aftermarket bumper may stay on your Volvo's back-end, does it fit as perfectly as an original manufacturer's would? Probably not, since the OEM bumper would have the precise holes to connect it and would match flawlessly.
  2. Warranty - Some leases or warranties have stipulations that any replacement parts must be Volvo OEM parts. In order to keep your lease or warranty running smoothly, without any added fees, you'll want to go with the OEM brand. Besides that, some of our Volvo replacement parts come with their own warranties, which will ensure that your Volvo remains repaired for quite some time.
  3. Compatibility - Now that cars are getting smarter, there is an aspect of system compatibility. Each of our Volvo vehicles come with their own unique set of infotainment and safety technological systems and programs that require a specific set of software, components, and Volvo tech. Although you can purchase aftermarket technological parts, it's best to keep the software the same.
  4. Distribution - OEM distributers, such as Scott Volvo, have been in business for many years and know how to transport their parts, large or small. Whether you're looking for brake pads for your Volvo V90 Cross Country in Golden Valley, you need a transmission part for your Volvo S60 in Allentown, or you require oil and a filter for your Volvo XC60's oil change anywhere else in Pennsylvania, an OEM distributer can get it to you in no time. Aftermarket businesses may not be as reliable.
  5. Durability - Your Volvo vehicle has been designed by some of the best car designers around the world who have meticulously put everything they have into building your Volvo model. They have spent countless hours making sure that the parts in your Volvo car or SUV fit perfectly and are made with the right amount of metal components. Using aftermarket parts, it isn't guaranteed that they are made from the same quality.
