Purchasing a new 2018 Ford model for sale? Some things are helpful to know before and during the car shopping process that will make buying your next car easier and give you peace of mind.One area that eludes many drivers is the vehicle warranty. Here at Park City Ford, we want to help you understand what kind of warranties are available to you and what comes with your new 2018 Ford model.
New Ford models come with a New Vehicle Limited Factory Warranty. Limited warranties come in several different types and offer different protections for a specified time or a certain amount of miles, whichever comes first.
With new Ford models, you get a Limited bumper-to-bumper warranty that lasts for three years or 36,000 miles. Your New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers the cost of repairs which correct defects related to materials or the workmanship from the manufacturer. During your warranty period, you’ll be covered for such repairs. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty doesn’t include specific components of your car that typically need periodic replacement such as the wipers, brake pads, and filters.
While the New Vehicle Limited Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty is probably the most well-known car warranty, your vehicle also comes with other warranties like the Federal Emission Control System Warranty which covers emission issues. This warranty lasts for eight years or 80,000 miles and covers material and workmanship which cause the vehicle to fail EPA regulations.
Many new Ford models also come with a Manufacturer’s Recommended Maintenance Warranty, which covers the first year or 12,000 miles and accounts for tires and wheel alignment.
