    07 95 Aero Wagon

    PARTS ADVERTISED AS OEM - BUT NOT OEM ?

    I own a 2007 9-5 Aero wagon. In Feb of 202I I purchased from eEuroparts.com an A/C compressor. The part was advertised as a Nissens Saab A/C Compressor (New), SKU 12758380A, "Quality: OEM-Original Equipment" . The original OEM A/C Compressor on my 9-5 Saab, which lasted 14 years, was GM Part#P12758380. The Nissens replacement compressor failed after 33 months of use. The part failed 8 months after the expiration of eEuroparts 24 month warranty. When I purchased the part I was informed that the Nissens A/C compressor was a genuine OEM part.
    I am requesting the help of the Saab 9-5 community regarding the following:
    1. To your knowledge, was Nissens ever an OEM A/C compressor supplier for the 2007 Saab 9-5 Aero, during the 07 model year?
    2. What has been the experience of other 9-5 owners regarding the Nissans A/C compressor, e.g. its reliability, performance, etc.; and
    3. Have other members experienced problems with parts advertised as "Genuine OEM" when the part was not a Saab OEM part.

    Thank you in advance for your help.
    Wm.

    Many of eeuro's parts are sold as "OEM Quality" because the manufacturer also makes and sells parts for OEMs. It's more of an indication of supposed part quality. However most manufacturers can and do build to a price point.
