Looks like OEM and should last just as long. The nut/washer o.d. was not as big as the original, so I reused the old one. See pic. The underside was also not painted, like the factory one, so I smeared some RTV in the voids before installing. Hopefully it won't corrode from underneath like the original. In the picture, the original part is on the left.
These hinges are good quality and installed easily in place of the originals. The only difficult part of the process was getting the old hinges off of the Escape.
These look much better than the old oxidized hinges and I can't tell these aren't OEM parts. The installed hinges can be seen in the photo.
Worked great on my '09 Escape after the old ones crumbled.
