Anyone looking to order Volvo parts is guaranteed components of the highest quality - opting for cheaper aftermarket alternatives comes with a lot of risks.

OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts

Plenty of drivers don't understand the difference between OEM parts and aftermarket parts, but it's easy enough:

  • OEM Parts: OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. The same company that made the vehicle will make the part.
  • Aftermarket: These are made by another company, often to fit several different vehicles.

Here's why you should almost always choose OEM parts over aftermarket.

  • Easier Selection: No need to assess quality or make difficult decisions. Your manufacturer will have made the part to its standards already.
  • Greater Quality: Aftermarket parts are often cheaper, and that usually means they aren't quite as reliable. Why jeopardize the health of your vehicle just to save a few bucks?
  • Perfect Fit: An OEM part will have been designed and manufactured to create an exact fit with your make and model. Aftermarket parts usually adopt a more cookie-cutter approach.

What Makes Volvo Parts Special?

Regardless of who made your car, it's best to stick with OEM parts. However, genuine Volvo parts are a cut above, so they offer benefits beyond even most OEM parts from other automakers.

  • Volvo cabin filters and air filters are incredibly effective and efficient, so you'll enjoy cleaner air and increase your engine's longevity.
  • Volvo windshields and wiper blades are engineered to minimize distractions.
  • Volvo tires and brake pads are 3mm thicker than those of most competitors to ensure peace of mind through every twist and turn.

Volvo has such confidence in their parts that each one carries the same promise as the vehicle itself - get it replaced at an authorized dealer and they'll include a lifetime warranty.
