Are OEM Parts Necessary to Maintain my Subaru Warranty? Sacramento Auto Service Questions

Get service question answers from Shingle Springs Subaru service professionals

You'll want to have OEM parts used to maintain and repair your Subaru. These are the Subaru factory-approved parts that we stock in our parts department at Shingle Springs Subaru! They're the best way to ensure a quality fit on your vehicle - and they also help keep your warranty valid. However, aftermarket parts can be used in some cases without voiding the warranty.

Your new Subaru warranty protects you from the unlikely event of a manufacturer defect or early component failure. To keep it valid, you'll need to prove you've followed the manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule, as outlined in your owner's manual. The easiest way to do this is to trust an authorized Subaru dealership with all your maintenance milestone appointments, including oil changes, fluid flushes, filter replacement and other procedures.

If you choose to have maintenance performed elsewhere, be sure it's a place you can trust, and keep meticulous records of all services performed. If you do need warranty service - which can only be carried out by an authorized Subaru dealer - your warranty could be rendered void if poor-quality parts were used, or a service was performed incorrectly. That's why we always recommend turning to the factory-trained service techs at a Subaru dealer for all your vehicle's service needs. They'll take proper care of your Subaru, and their workmanship is always covered by your warranty.

What are OEM Subaru Parts, Anyway?

OEM stands for "Original Equipment Manufacturer," and it means the very same parts that were used during the original assembly of your car at the Subaru factory. Because they're designed and built with your exact vehicle in mind, you can be confident in their performance and fit on your particular Subaru.

Aftermarket parts have a high variance in quality and performance. Some may perform identically to OEM parts, others may cause your performance to suffer a bit, others might wear out rapidly and even damage your car! Consult with a Subaru dealer service technician before having non-OEM parts used on your vehicle.
