What is a Ford Extended Warranty?

Quality and dependability are key reasons why you would choose to drive a Ford. However, over time some parts of your car may need replacing leaving you with an unexpected repair bill; which is why Ford Protect offers extended warranties for both new and used vehicles. Select from the options below for further information on the plan that’s right for you.

New Car Extended Warranty (Before Vehicle Delivery)

As you know, your car comes with a 3 year/60,000 miles Ford Warranty so if you plan on keeping your vehicle for up to three years then you can be assured of peace of mind motoring knowing your car is protected against any defect relating to material, fitting or manufacturing fault. But if you plan on keeping your car for longer than 3 years, or you are a high mileage driver, then why not consider a Ford Protect Classic 4th and 5th year warranty extension? You can choose the protection you need, with warranties that suit:

  • the way you use your car
  • the distances you drive
  • the importance to you (or your business) of having your car on the road at all times
  • and, of course, your budget!

What’s more, if you do decide to sell your car before the warranty expires, any unexpired warranty period can be transferred to the next owner, making your car a more attractive buy – with a potentially higher resale value – than one without a Ford Protect Extended Warranty. 

When can I buy?

Ford Protect Extended Warranty Plans can be purchased up until the vehicle’s first date of registration. 

One-off payment

A one-off flat payment means that unexpected repair costs won’t blow a hole in your budget. Ford Protect will cover the costs and you’ll be back on the road as soon as possible, with your finances running as smoothly as your car!
