The Ins and Outs of Your Ford Warranty


Ford wants you to enjoy owning your vehicle as much as you enjoy driving it and are dedicated to ensuring they are providing their customers with a reliable product. The warranty coverage provided with every new vehicle purchase is evidence that they stand behind the quality of their vehicles. A warranty is a guarantee made by a seller to a consumer for a product being sold. In the case of a vehicle warranty, it is a contract that provides coverage for replacement and repair costs for certain parts of the vehicle for a specific amount of time.

Ford provides two different types of new car warranties when you purchase a new vehicle from Statewide Ford or another certified Ford dealer. These two warranties cover repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of any part original to the vehicle.

The first type of warranty is a Bumper to Bumper warranty, also called the Basic Warranty. This warranty provides coverage for all parts of the car, from the front bumper to the back bumper, hence the name “bumper to bumper”. The Basic Warranty covers all components other than normal wear and maintenance items for 3 years or 36,000 miles on Ford vehicles.

The other type of warranty is the Powertrain warranty which covers all of the parts of the vehicle that make it run. Ford’s Powertrain Warranty lasts for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. Coverage includes the engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel drive system, rear-wheel drive, seat belts and airbags.

Additional warranties are also included with the purchase of a new Ford like the Corrosion Warranty which covers corrosion perforation of sheet metal for 5 years. Also included, is Roadside Assistance which lasts for the same amount of time and mileage as the Powertrain Warranty.

It is helpful to get familiar with the specific terms of your vehicle’s warranty and to make sure that you perform all required regular maintenance as some warranties only remain valid if you follow the scheduled maintenance recommendations for your specific vehicle.
