What are the Advantages of Ford OEM Parts?

If your Ford runs into trouble on the Chicago roads and needs some of its parts replaced, we at Sutton Ford guarantee we’ll use only genuine OEM (original equipment manufacturer) Ford parts. OEM parts are tailor-made to fit your specific vehicle so it can keep running in the best condition possible. Visiting a chain or an independent auto shop for a parts replacement usually results in your vehicle being fitted with generic or third-party aftermarket parts, which could affect its performance. There are plenty of other advantages of using Ford OEM parts, and the service team at Sutton Ford has everything you need to know in the guide below.



What are Ford OEM Parts?

OEM parts refer to parts made specifically for the make, model, and year of your vehicle. They’re only available at qualified service centers–in this case, Ford dealerships. The alternative to OEM parts are called aftermarket parts, which are made by generic parts companies and used by independent auto shops to fit as many makes and models as possible. You may be able to save a bit of money on aftermarket parts, but it comes at the cost of your vehicle’s performance–OEM parts are designed to fit perfectly with your vehicle and maximize its capabilities on the streets of New Lenox and beyond.

Benefits of Ford OEM Parts

There are plenty of benefits to using genuine OEM parts for your Ford vehicle that more than justify the slightly higher price tag. Here are some of the best advantages of bringing your car to a qualified Ford service center for a parts replacement:

  • Quality: Aftermarket parts tend to be less expensive because they use inferior materials, which means they don’t last as long. You may end up actually paying more if you use aftermarket parts because you’ll have to replace them much more often.
  • Performance: As stated above, OEM Ford parts are designed to work exclusively with your Ford vehicle, giving you the best performance possible.
  • Selection: Aftermarket parts are made to fit as wide a variety of cars as possible, which often means there’s an overwhelming selection to choose from. When you work with the parts department at Sutton Ford, we’ll make the selection process a breeze.
  • Parts Warranty: Using genuine Ford OEM parts means you’ll be covered by a 2-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, something you won’t get if you use aftermarket parts.
  • Vehicle Warranty: Using aftermarket parts may void your Ford warranty if you’re driving a new vehicle–check your warranty for specifics.
