If you’re looking around Lubbock for Honda parts cheap, you might be tempted to go for aftermarket parts, but you shouldn’t. Why use only genuine Honda OEM parts? We’re glad you asked, as we only use genuine Honda parts and tires when we service your Honda model.

Honda Parts: Aftermarket

First, what do we mean when we say “aftermarket” parts? They are any part not built by the manufacturer. While many drivers looking for Honda parts around Hereford can tell the difference, we have some pointers.

  • Aftermarket parts are built for a range of years and sometimes even a range of makes and models.
  • Aftermarket parts will often need to be trimmed or sized to fit your specific vehicle.
  • Colors won’t match between the aftermarket part and your Honda vehicle’s paint — either a slight difference or a garish one.
  • You will not find details of the Honda OEM part warranty on any aftermarket part packaging.
