Genuine Ford Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts: What's the Difference?


A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on

When you get ready to maintain and repair your Ford at home, the parts you choose to use make all the difference. You have two choices: aftermarket parts, or genuine Ford parts. But what's the difference? Believe it or not, the difference is big.

Quality: Because aftermarket parts aren't necessarily specialized for any specific vehicle, quality can vary dramatically. Genuine Ford parts, on the other hand, are designed specifically for your Ford, and will maintain your vehicle's integrity.

Longevity: Aftermarket parts may not last as long, precisely because of the lower quality. Genuine Ford parts are made to give you a lasting repair.

Savings: While aftermarket parts may be cheaper up front, you'll find out what makes them so cheap when they fail sooner. The best way to save money in the long run is to reduce the need for future repairs, and that's exactly what genuine Ford parts do.
