Ford Warranty: Paint Surface Warranty

If the paint surface of the vehicle body requires attention due to a manufacturing defect, the necessary repairs will be performed completely free of charge by any Ford Authorised Repairer, regardless of any change in vehicle ownership during the warranty period.

Paint Surface Warranty Period

The paint surface warranty runs from the first registration date of the vehicle. Where an intermediary purchases a vehicle, the period of cover commences when the vehicle is handed over to that intermediary. The paint surface warranty period is the same as the Ford Base Warranty applicable to your vehicle. Refer to your vehicle's Service Portfolio (formally Warranty & Service Guide) for the warranty periods applicable to your vehicle.

Paint Surface Warranty Exceptions

Ford is not responsible for any repair that is required as a direct result of:

  • Damage caused by neglect, flooding, accident, or improper use.
  • Failure to properly maintain Paint and bodywork by regular cleaning in accordance with Ford instructions.
  • Factors beyond Ford control, such as: airborne contamination, storm damage, stone chips, scratches and the use of unsuitable cleaning agents.
  • Repairs using methods that have not been approved by Ford.
