Why Are OEM Parts Better Than Aftermarket Car Parts?

OEM Ford parts are the preferred replacement parts you need for your car because they are made by the vehicle’s manufacturer. They are the same parts that are put in your vehicle when it rolls off the assembly line, so they are made specifically for your car. Aftermarket parts, however, are not sold from your car’s maker. 

OEM parts provide a better foundation for quality, because they are utilized specifically for your car. Therefore, if it’s an OEM part, you don’t have to waste time researching or picking from a variety of unknown brands when you need a part. Most OEM parts also come with a warranty. All our parts at Ford Parts Center are backed by a Factory Ford Motorcraft warranty. Ask your auto repair technician for more information about a specific part. 

Why Do Some People Prefer Aftermarket Parts?

Many auto enthusiasts prefer to purchase aftermarket parts for specific performance enhancements in their sports car or off-road vehicle. They spend time to review dozens of different aftermarket brands to pick a part to serve a function above the normal standards of a manufactured vehicle. 

However, if you are not a savvy auto enthusiast, it is hard to determine which brand is reliable. Due to the overwhelming selection, many drivers are simply guessing whether they are buying a reliable part and their purchase most likely will not come with any kind of warranty. 

Shop with Ford Parts Center for peace of mind and a guaranteed quality product. Not only will you save with wholesale pricing, but the parts you find are guaranteed to be manufacturer approved and a perfect fit.
