Ford OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

An Overview Of Ford OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Many people aren't aware of the differences between Ford OEM parts and aftermarket parts. It is easy to assume that these differences are inconsequential, but this is not the case. Ford OEM parts are made at the Ford factory out of the same materials and to the same specifications as the components of your Ford vehicle. Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, are often cheap copies made out of flimsy material to lower manufacturing standards. Read on to learn more about the important differences between Ford OEM parts and aftermarket parts.


The Importance Of Ford OEM Parts

It is very important that you choose Ford OEM parts over aftermarket parts for your vehicle. Ford OEM parts are made to the most exacting manufacturing tolerances. That means that every Ford OEM component made for your vehicle will work as it should. Our OEM parts also utilize high-quality materials. This allows these components to last as long as possible. Aftermarket parts do not offer the same guarantees.

What May Happen If You Get Aftermarket Parts


Aftermarket Ford parts, as previously mentioned, are not made to the same manufacturing tolerances. There is a good chance that they won't even fit properly, much less work as well as our OEM parts. Also, aftermarket parts are frequently made out of cheap materials. This means that these parts will not last as long as OEM parts would. If you get aftermarket parts, you risk getting components that may not fit, may not work properly, and will almost certainly wear out much earlier than our genuine Ford OEM parts would.
