What are the Advantages of Genuine OEM Ford Parts?

Have you asked yourself, “What are the advantages of genuine OEM Ford parts?” When you bring your Ford vehicle to the Service Center at Citrus Motors Ford for routine maintenance or repair, you’ve likely heard our technicians discussing which genuine OEM Ford parts to use for your vehicle. Going to a corner garage or independent mechanic, on the other hand, means technicians will use aftermarket parts. What’s the difference? Discover why your Ford Fusion or F-150 will benefit from OEM over aftermarket parts on the roads of Rancho Cucamonga!

About Ford OEM Parts

OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, indicates that parts of this nature are made by Ford specifically for Ford vehicles. Meanwhile, aftermarket parts come from a parts company, and they’re often optimized to be compatible with as many makes and models as possible. With this in mind, it’s clear that aftermarket parts cannot guarantee the perfect fit like authentic OEM parts can. This is especially true for visible parts – who wants mismatched colors adorning their Ford Escape around Fontana?

OEM Parts Advantages

Aftermarket parts are often assumed to be less expensive than OEM parts. That isn’t always the case, but if so, less expensive also means cheaper in other ways, like quality and performance. Enjoy the following advantages of OEM Ford parts:

  • Quality: As we said, cheaper aftermarket parts typically means they were made with low-quality materials, which in turn can cause them to wear more quickly or fail entirely.
  • Performance: Ford OEM parts were designed for Ford vehicles and Ford vehicles alone, which means they will fit perfectly in place and function just as they are meant to function. No need to worry about parts malfunctioning as you visit the best restaurants in Ontario, CA!
  • Selection: The variety of aftermarket parts may be overwhelming and confusing for some Alta Loma-area drivers, whereas a visit to our Ford Parts Department leaves no guesswork for you. You will get exactly what you need for your specific Ford repair or maintenance needs.
  • Parts Warranty: All genuine Ford OEM parts come backed by a 2-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, in case further issues arise down the road. The same can’t be said for all aftermarket parts.
  • Vehicle Warranty: Using aftermarket parts is risky, especially if you are driving a new Ford that is still under warranty. That’s because doing so may void your warranty coverage if something goes wrong.
