Saturn Headlight - OE and Aftermarket Parts Comparison

Summary

  • Headlights keep you safe while driving your Saturn at night.  It’s illegal and dangerous to drive at night with dim or nonfunctional headlamps, so prioritize getting a new Saturn headlight  to replace any bad or failing units.
  • Saturn originally produced OE parts, like the Saturn VUE headlight, for its vehicle lineup. Lanter, General Motors became the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) responsible for producing replacement parts for Saturn vehicles.
  • Aftermarket parts refer to components produced for a finished vehicle. They can match the quality and performance of OE parts.
  • Depending on the manufacturer, features, and quantity purchased, a new Saturn headlight can cost anywhere between $30 to $500. You can get individual headlights or a set of 2, 3, 4, or 5 headlights.
  • For those who need headlights that shine brighter or work differently, look for OE upgrade headlights that deliver greater performance.

 

Headlights keep you safe while driving your Saturn at night by illuminating the road ahead of your vehicle and showing your car’s position. They emit steady beams of sufficient brightness to light your way without producing glare that may blind other drivers heading your way.

Extensive use of the headlights can burn or wear them out prematurely. It’s illegal and dangerous to drive at night with dim or nonfunctional headlamps, so prioritize getting a new Saturn headlight to replace any bad or failing units. But what should you choose, an OE part or an aftermarket part?

OE Saturn headlight

OE stands for Original Equipment, and some people call them Genuine parts. Produced by the vehicle’s manufacturer, they are the parts found inside a factory-fresh vehicle. You can mainly find them at official dealerships and retailers partnered with the original manufacturer, and their restricted availability can make them harder to get.

Saturn originally produced OE parts, like the Saturn VUE headlight, for its vehicle lineup. When its parent company General Motors absorbed Saturn, GM became the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) responsible for producing replacement parts for Saturn vehicles.

In 2010, GM halted production of Saturn vehicles and closed all Saturn dealerships. It designated Saturn Authorized Service Providers to deliver customer service and support for owners of Saturn vehicles.

Aftermarket headlight for Saturn vehicles

Aftermarket parts refer to components produced for a vehicle after it leaves its production factory. Usually, companies with no relationship to the OEM produce these replacement parts, and they design their products to match the quality and performance of OE parts.

These components offer several advantages over their OE counterparts. First, aftermarket parts appear in the catalog of virtually every car parts supplier, making them much easier to get. Second, they enjoy attractive prices because competition between aftermarket parts manufacturers drives the design and development of better products.

Third, the aforementioned plethora of products ensures you won’t run out of options. You can find a Saturn headlight that not only fits your vehicle but also your personal preferences and needs.

How much does a replacement headlight for a Saturn vehicle cost?

Depending on the manufacturer, features, and quantity purchased, a new Saturn headlight can cost anywhere between $30 to $500. You can get individual headlights or a set of 2, 3, 4, or 5 headlights.

If you need your car back on the road with no frills attached, pick OE replacement Saturn headlights. You won’t notice any difference between them and the Genuine parts they replaced.

For those who need headlights that shine brighter or work differently, look for OE upgrade headlights that deliver greater performance. Saturn headlights with LED light bulbs produce more illumination than older halogen bulbs, making them an excellent purchase for drivers who find their Saturn’s stock headlights too dim for their ease of mind.
