Replacement Parts Recommendation
Your vehicle has been built to the highest standards using quality parts. As a result, you can enjoy driving it for many years.
We recommend that you demand the use of genuine Ford and Motorcraft parts whenever your vehicle requires scheduled maintenance or repair. You can clearly identify genuine Ford and Motorcraft parts by looking for the Ford, FoMoCo or Motorcraft branding on the parts or their packaging.
Brightness is a main criterion for headlamps. Being too bright or too dull can affect road safety. In terms of durability, the internal reflector panel of genuine headlamps is designed to be durable and resistant to ageing so that it maintains consistent brightness, while many non-genuine lamps wear quickly.
The design of the drive shaft needs to have universal joint that needs to be able to bear heavy loads. Thus, material that needs precision of a normal drive shaft must be taken into consideration. If the drive shaft is not balanced well, it will cause the vehicle to wobble whilst running, affecting related components and road safety.
Brake pad or disk
Non-genuine brake pads often cannot meet Ford requirements, which can cause overheating and lead to brake failure or losing the ability to brake.
Cracks can appear on non genuine brake discs, which could affect braking performance and road safety.
Engine oil and oil filter
We recommend that you ask your Ford Dealer for advice on parts and accessories suitable for your vehicle and have them fitted at a Ford authorised dealership.
