Ford Extended Service 

I Am Planning To Purchase A New Ford, What Are My Options Regarding an Extended Warranty?

If you’re planning to purchase a new Ford vehicle, then you probably have questions concerning the options available to you regarding an extended warranty. First, you should be aware that all of Ford vehicles are covered by a 12-month standard warranty. Ford Motor Company assures that all mechanical and electrical components have met quality control standards during the manufacturing and pre-delivery process.

Of course, even with the highest standards and intended high quality, an unexpected repair can present itself. Ford Protect is an extended service plan that is designed to give you added peace of mind and to keep the impact of an unexpected repair at a minimum. The great news is that you get to decide on the level of impact and options to meet your expectations of extended coverage!

Keep in mind, for all of the plans listed below, 100 percent financing is available to help extend your budget and still select the vehicle of your choice.


The PowertrainCare extended warranty has 29 covered components, which includes the partial coverage of engine components, such as the manifold, oil pan, oil pump, seals, gaskets, thermostat, timing chain, valve covers and the water pump. These important components are normally the most vulnerable during the period of ownership. Typically, a PowertrainCare extended warranty will save an average of $4,000 to $6,000 for engine repairs during the lifetime of vehicle ownership. Additional vehicle elements of partial coverage include the transmission, rear-wheel drive, and front-wheel drive mechanisms.


With coverage’s that include the same vehicle elements of the PowertrainCare extended warranty, the Bestcare extended warranty also protects the steering assembly, which includes the column lock, control valve, idler arm, linkages, couplings, power steering pump, pulley assembly, and the complete steering gear housing. Additionally, there are 84 covered components included in the warranty. The BestCare extended warranty is designed to cover vehicle systems that impact drivability and overall vehicle performance.


There are 113 covered components included in the ExtraCare extended warranty, and of all of the covered components, the brake system is the most notable. With full coverage of the entire brake system, you can have peace of mind knowing that important components aren’t going to be at your expense, in the event a repair is needed. The components include, but are not limited to, the anti-lock brake module and sensor, backing plates, brake booster, calipers, master cylinder, parking brake, and wheel cylinders. The average savings with the brake component coverage can reach as $1,000 over the lifetime of vehicle ownership.
