OEM PartsWhen it comes to replacing a part on your car, you can either take it to a mechanic who will most likely use aftermarket parts or to a Ford dealer who uses original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. OEM parts come directly from Ford’s official manufacturers rather than a third party. These parts are made to the exact specifications of the brand, so you are getting the best quality. Choosing aftermarket parts for your Ford vehicle is fine, but OEM parts offer so many more benefits. Aftermarket parts often draw people’s attention because they are cheaper, however, cheaper isn’t always better. In the case of parts for your car, it can mean more times in the shop which in the long run will end up costing you more. By choosing to take your car to a dealer they can help you get it right the first time. They have parts that are the proper fit for your car and will keep your car lasting longer than it would on aftermarket parts.
Benefits of OEM PartsYou may think aftermarket parts will work just as well as original parts, but that is not always the case. OEM parts offer a few more benefits than what an aftermarket part would. These benefits include getting the perfect fit, preserving your car’s originality, and more. Continue reading to learn more about these benefits and others. As you read consider these benefits when deciding what type of part you will use for your vehicle.
Perfect FitSince OEM parts are created by original manufacturers, they are designed to fit your vehicle perfectly. Aftermarket parts can potentially be a few measurements off, which could affect the quality. Not only that but, with OEM parts you can rest assured that you will find the part you are looking for. You won’t have to consider settling for a faulty part when you choose OEM because they have a large selection that you can’t find anywhere else.
ResponseWhen you choose the OEM the response will be faster because your Ford dealership is stocked with a variety of parts. If you were to visit a different automotive mechanic, they would most likely need to order the part for you. Since they operate on a number of different makes and models, having the part your Ford vehicle needs is unlikely.
Preserving OriginalityCar enthusiasts will prefer OEM parts because they keep the vehicle as close to the original as possible. Keeping a vehicle as original as possible is beneficial when it comes to its overall value. Aftermarket parts can reduce the value of classic Ford vehicles.
Higher QualitySince you are purchasing parts from our official manufacturers, you are getting the highest quality parts available. Many aftermarket parts are mass-produced at a lower quality. Ford manufacturers mass-produce, but with premium products and resources. When you replace parts it is expected that your machine will work as well as it did before. OEM ensures that your new replacement won’t lessen your vehicle’s performance. Each part is designed to provide optimal performance and last longer than aftermarket parts.
WarrantyFord offers better warranties than what an aftermarket manufacturer will. In fact, most aftermarket parts are not covered by a warranty. After repairing your car you want to know that it is going to last. Having a warranty can help you to ensure the reliability of your car. Choose a Ford OEM part in order to have peace of mind. Plus, you can reap all the other benefits OEM parts provide.
Return on InvestmentWhen you get down to it, choosing OEM parts over aftermarket parts will provide you with equipment that is specifically designed for your vehicle. Since it is designed to factory expectations these parts will increase the life of your equipment. With a reliable vehicle and quality parts, you will save time and money when it comes to repairs and maintenance.
