What does OEM stand for?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. An OEM is a company that manufactures parts specifically designed for use in new vehicles by car companies. So, essentially, OEM parts are the ones that come installed on your car when you buy it new from the dealership.

Here are some additional things to know about OEMs in the automotive world:

  • There are many different OEMs, and they can supply a wide variety of parts for a car, including engines, transmissions, brakes, electronics, and even things like windshields and seats.
  • Some OEMs also manufacture replacement parts that are sold by car dealerships and independent repair shops. These parts are designed to be exactly the same as the original parts on your car.
  • There is also an aftermarket for car parts, which means that there are other companies that make parts that are specifically designed to fit your car. These parts can be cheaper than OEM parts, but they may not be of the same quality.
