Ford announces five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty

Ford Australia has announced a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty applying on new vehicle purchases from 1 May 2018…what it means for those who purchased a new Ford at the end of April we don’t yet know.

FORD AUSTRALIA has revealed a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty, replacing its three-years, 100,000km warranty. The new warranty became active from 1 May 2018, and Practical Motoring has asked Ford what it means for customers who purchased a car at the end of April…were they told of the new warranty? Stay tuned for the answer.

The new warranty will now be standard on all new passenger and commercial vehicles. “This is another step in our transformation plan,” said Graeme Whickman, President and CEO of Ford of Australia.

“We’re transforming our dealerships, our products, our customer service and ownership experience, and today we’re introducing a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty to offer even more value for our customers.”

“Our Ranger and Transit owners rely on their vehicles and we want them to know Ford’s got them covered for five years and unlimited kilometres,” said Whickman.

“At five years and unlimited kilometres, Ranger has the class-leading standard warranty within the pick-up and cab chassis segment,” he added.

“This is not a special offer, it’s what customers have been asking for and it’s what we are delivering today,” said Whickman. “We will continue to innovate and find new ways to provide the best service and benefits we can for our customers.”

While a five-year warranty is welcome, just what it means to those who purchased in April, potentially stuck on the old warranty, we’re waiting for Ford to explain.
