The Ford parts in your vehicle are designed to last, and with a little service and care, you’ll be able to keep your vehicle on the road for a long time to come. The very best parts for your vehicle are Ford OEM—or original equipment manufacturer—parts. They’re produced on the same machines that originally made your vehicle and come equipped with warranties and protections for peace of mind.

That said, high-quality pre-owned parts can help to get your vehicle back on the road after damage or wear. There are some parts you’ll want to avoid purchasing pre-owned, including some of the following:

Brake Pads

Brake pads are designed to wear down, which is why you’ll want to get your brake pads replaced every 30,000-70,000 miles, depending on your driving style. If you purchase brake pads pre-owned, they’ll already have lost a significant amount of their capability and will need to be replaced again soon.


Your vehicle requires several different filters to function. Filters capture the dirt and debris from the road and the air before it can damage the engine, which is why they need to be replaced regularly. If you purchase a used filter, it’s likely already partially or completely filled, which means it can’t do the job the way a new filter can.


Belts can wear down over time, especially in extreme hot or cold temperatures. When you purchase a belt pre-owned, you don’t know the environment it was used in or how many miles it has, which can put your Ford vehicle at risk. Belts are relatively inexpensive and best purchased new.
