Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About OEM Parts

Northtown Mazda in Amherst, NY, Answers Your Questions

If you're unfamiliar with ordering new parts for your vehicle, the experts at Northtown Mazda are here to help!  When the time comes to shop for new automotive parts, it's helpful to know the difference between OEM and aftermarket replacement parts.  Here's what our experts have to say.

Should I Buy OEM Parts?

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts are created by Mazda specifically for Mazda vehicles.  OEM parts are the highest-quality replacement part you can buy and offer the pinnacle of safety and reliability when adding any new parts to your vehicle near Buffalo, NY.

Should I Get Aftermarket Auto Parts?

Aftermarket auto parts are inferior to OEM parts, as they lack credibility and are likely to last half as long as genuine parts from the manufacturer.  Aftermarket parts may be cheaper but will cost you more in the long run as problems reoccur.

Which Parts Are Most Expensive to Repair?

Replacing parts for any components of your powertrain - including the engine, transmission, battery, driveshaft, etc. - will be the most expensive to repair.

What Car Parts Are Covered or Not Covered By Warranty?

Northtown Mazda offers extended warranty coverage options for drivers in Amherst, NY.  Most options are comprehensive, but not all plans cover all automotive parts.  Here's a snapshot of what you can expect each warranty plan to cover:

  • Powertrain Warranty - Covers your engine, transfer case, axles, transmission, and gaskets.
  • Bumper-to-Bumper - Covers safety features, technology systems, AC/Heating, and all major vehicle systems.
  • Not Covered - Body panel damage, accidental damage, interior damage, scheduled maintenance, and normal wear and tear.

Should I Buy Car Parts from Amazon?

The convenience of Amazon is no match for the trusted reliability of purchasing genuine OEM parts from a reputable auto facility.  Confer with the experts at Northtown Mazda before shopping on Amazon to ensure you're getting the correct parts for your Mazda in Tonawanda, NY.

Where Do I Buy New Auto Parts?

We recommend working with our certified parts team to buy new auto parts for your Mazda here at our facility.  Our parts crew offers premium deals on genuine OEM parts, including bumpers, batteries, and more!  Find the exact form-fitting parts for your Mazda at Northtown Mazda and even click to explore our available inventory online from the comfort of your home.

How Do I Choose Between OEM Auto Parts and After MARKET Parts?

The difference is in the detail.  Aftermarket parts may appear cheaper and look passable, but the reality is that you get what you pay for.  Consider the long-term benefits of choosing OEM parts and watch your Mazda flourish as you tend to its wounds with care and compassion.  The choice is yours, but it's proven that you can't beat genuine OEM parts.

What Advice Do I Need When Shopping For Used Auto Parts?

Sometimes shopping for a certified used auto part is more effective than buying something brand new.  In these cases, we advise working alongside our parts team to make sure the used parts you're getting are up to code.  This process can be tricky, which is why we recommend seeking advice from our expert parts team at Northtown Mazda.

What Do I Do With Old or Defective Auto Parts I No Longer Need?

It's important to recycle old or defective auto parts instead of just throwing them in the trash.  Many components on your Mazda, including most fluids and your battery, can cause damage to the environment if not disposed of properly.  If you've got old or defective auto parts laying around, please call our parts team and schedule a time to come and drop them off at our shop.
