New Ford Explorer

What Does the Ford New Vehicle Limited Warranty Cover?

When you purchase a new Ford vehicle, you are covered from defects in materials or workmanship that originated at the factory. This basic bumper-to-bumper warranty starts on the sale date of the new vehicle, and lasts for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Your vehicle is also covered by a powertrain warranty lasting 5 year or 60,000 miles.

Additional factory warranties provide coverage over additional rust perforation, emission components, and safety belts. These warranties protect you from defects originating from the factory, and do not cover standard maintenance costs. If you encounter issues with your new Ford vehicle, make an appointment with our authorized Ford service center today so we can help to diagnose the problem.
