What are the Advantages of Genuine OEM Ford Parts?

Ford OEM Parts

If you’re soon planning to repair or modify your new or used Ford, genuine Ford OEM parts are the only way to go! When you put your trust in the Mike Murphy Ford service center, we guarantee your vehicle will be serviced only with the Ford parts that were made especially for your model. Choose to take a chance on an independent shop in Peoria, and you’ll likely end up with aftermarket parts that weren’t fitted for your model. Explore the advantages of using Ford OEM parts with Mike Murphy Ford, below!

What Are Ford OEM parts?

In our case, OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, means that the parts you’re looking at were all made by Ford, and were all made specifically for Ford vehicles. Aftermarket parts, while typically lower in price, are produced by independent parts companies and are typically made to fit multiple vehicles from multiple makes.

For the East Peoria consumer, this means that aftermarket parts are not going to deliver the same quality and longevity that genuine Ford OEM parts will. The unfortunate reality is that because aftermarket parts are made to be used on so many different makes and models, you’ll likely end up having to cut and fit them for your own vehicle. If you need to replace an exterior part on your car, aftermarket options aren’t likely to be an exact color match, so you might feel a bit silly driving around Morton.

Why Use OEM Parts?

Sure, aftermarket parts are cheaper in price than OEM parts, but they’re usually cheaper in quality, too. Take a look at the many advantages of opting for OEM parts:

  • Quality: There’s a reason aftermarket parts are so cheap: They’re made from low-quality materials. You might save money now, but when they fail in the future, you’ll end up spending more money in the long run.
  • Performance: Because Ford OEM parts were made for your exact vehicle, you’ll rest assured that you’re getting a perfect fit that will keep your vehicle looking and running its best for years to come.
  • Selection: When you’re shopping for aftermarket parts, you’ll often find a dizzying amount of options, making it difficult to know whether you’re really getting what you need. When you shop with a certified Ford parts center, you’ll rest easy knowing that you paid for exactly what your vehicle needs.
  • Parts Warranty: Genuine Ford OEM parts are backed by a 2-year/unlimited mileage warranty. You’ll never find that with aftermarket options!
  • Vehicle Warranty: Is your new Ford still under warranty? If you modify it with aftermarket parts, your warranty may be voided early.
