Beyond driving your vehicle carefully and operating it properly, the most important thing you can do for the longevity and performance of your vehicle is to give it the maintenance it needs. That means that sometimes you will need to do routine things like get your oil changed or replace the tires, but other times you will need new parts for your vehicle. When it is time to replace something on your Chevy, it is best to use factory-made GM parts – Cincinnati is a great place to own and drive a Chevy, but you have to take care of it.
For some people, the process of getting a new part, pulling out the old unit and replacing it with something sparkling and new is a major aspect of the joy they get from owning a vehicle. For others, any kind of maintenance or upkeep, especially something like replacing a vehicle’s parts, is about as attractive to them as performing their own dental work or minor surgery. Whether you are an expert at keeping your truck maintained, or you are worried about a weird sound you cannot identify, our experts here at McCluskey Chevy in Cincinnati can help you with whatever you need.
For the most part, the work that your vehicle will need is usually going to be fairly routine and minor maintenance. This can include things like changing the oil in your vehicle, checking other fluid levels and replacing them as needed, or replacing your battery. All of these procedures can be done quickly and easily, either by you if you have the experience necessary to safely perform them or at our service center here at McCluskey Chevy. You may be able to choose genuine GM parts here in Cincinnati for some of these processes, while others will use standard materials made by other companies.
While these kinds of maintenance are pretty minor in terms of complexity, they are still extremely important. Changing your oil on a routine basis as suggested by the manufacturer of your vehicle, for example, is fairly fast and inexpensive, but can prevent much more costly issues with your engine. Similarly, replacing your tires when needed can be a hassle, but it is much less expensive and far less dangerous than a serious collision. Proper routine maintenance is just as important as more serious repairs and replacements for your vehicle.
If you are looking for GM parts in Cincinnati, then you probably have a need for more elaborate repairs or replacements than something simple like an oil change. Cars, trucks, and SUVs are complicated machines with a lot of moving parts – not to mention the fact that computers have become more important to vehicle upkeep with each passing year. No matter how well-made your vehicle is, parts are going to wear down and need replacing over time – that is just how the extreme heat and pressure inside a vehicle take their toll.
When you need part replacements, it is important to go through a vendor that you know and trust to make sure you get the right parts and that they are of the highest quality. Other vendors might try to make as much profit as possible from ordering parts for you, perhaps even going so far as to charge you more for an inferior product. At McCluskey Chevy, we are as passionate about GM vehicles as you are, and all of our technicians are trained to get you exactly what you need, every time.
When you look for vehicle parts in Cincinnati, there are really two different types of parts you should consider and look at. The first, and typically the best, are referred to as “Original Equipment Manufacturer” or OEM – sometimes also referred to simply as OM for original manufacturer. These are GM parts available in Cincinnati from GM itself – the original manufacturer of your Chevy vehicle. When you order these kinds of GM parts, then you know they are made for your specific vehicle and are usually identical to what you are replacing.
There are also parts available that are referred to as “aftermarket,” which are made by third-party companies rather than manufacturers. In other words, these are not GM parts in Cincinnati, but instead they are parts made by another company designed to fit in and work with your vehicle. Sometimes an aftermarket part is a great choice that works well – this is particularly true when the parts you want are accessories not offered by the original manufacturer, rather than a replacement. When replacing critical components for your vehicle, however, GM parts are usually the right choice.
When it comes to mechanical systems of your vehicle that are directly responsible for keeping you safely in control of your car or truck, you cannot beat real GM parts. A slight miscalculation or incorrect measurement by a third-party company can result in a vastly inferior product ending up in your vehicle. At the very least, this can negatively impact your vehicle’s performance or cause the part to need to be replaced again sooner. At the worst, poorly made or improperly fitting parts can result in a catastrophic crash with potentially deadly consequences.
Not only do we have a wide range of real GM parts here in Cincinnati for you to choose from, but we can also order just about anything you need that we do not have. We do everything we can to get these parts here as quickly as possible so that you are back on the road without delay.

On the other hand, if you need the part installed or replaced, then our knowledgeable technicians are here to make sure your vehicle runs as smoothly as possible.
