After a Collision, the Right Parts Really Do Matter

Why Original Ford Parts? Are aftermarket or generic parts really that bad?

Those are good, important questions. But the fact is, Ford vehicles are carefully designed so that everything works together. The parts you use in your vehicle do matter. Even one generic or aftermarket part can compromise the integrity of your entire vehicle system. While plenty of drivers probably don’t give this a lot of thought, it’s a truly important thing to consider.

To highlight the importance of using Original Ford Parts, Ford has created a series of informative videos. Each video features Ford engineers talking about why the right parts are important, including how Original Ford Parts help everything in your vehicle work together smoothly and how they help in overall safety. You can find these videos by visiting the Why The Right Parts Matter playlist on the Ford Motor Company YouTube channel. The videos are entitled “Every Part Has to Work Together” and “Safety Engineering – It’s All in the Details.”

You can always visit for more information. You’ll find advice on choosing a repair shop, a locator for the Ford National Body Shop Network, driving tips for various weather conditions and our collision guide. It’s all part of our goal to help keep you informed on how to get the most out of your Ford vehicle. Remember, if you need to replace a part in your vehicle, the right choice is Original Ford Parts.
