Subaru recommends using only genuine Subaru parts and chemicals.

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. So when you purchase an OEM part or accessory for your Subaru, you're getting the only part that has the exact same specs as the one it's replacing. Same measurements, same materials, same manufacturing and assembly processes. And when it's Subaru, that means high quality born of intelligent engineering, uncompromising material selection, and meticulous craftsmanship. There are several companies out there that make parts that have been designed to fit adequately and work adequately in as many different makes and models as possible. That's great for those manufacturers, because they get to optimize their profits by having fewer different designs and products. It's also great for the big chain auto parts stores, because they don't need to carry nearly as many different kinds of parts in their inventory. But it's not so great for you, because you get to find out that "adequate" is very different from "great". That means that even if the part does manage to fit and perform, it won't perform as well as the correct Subaru part; and it won't last as long, either. So you'll end up spending more in the long run than if you had purchased the OEM part in the first place.

The same is true for your vehicle's fluids. Subaru has its own fluids such as motor oil, coolant, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. Each one is carefully engineered to be the ideal choice, working in perfect harmony with the various systems in a Subaru car or SUV. And while a third-party aftermarket part can potentially damage your car's mechanics, the wrong fluids can wreak absolute havoc inside whole systems.
