Ford Vehicle Protection: Review, Price, and Coverage Options

BY: Alex Perrone

Ford drivers are a very distinct group of car enthusiasts. The tagline, “Built Ford Tough,” is the company’s way of stamping quality manufacturing and ruggedness onto their vehicles – and alludes that a Ford can tolerate any rough rides you put it through.

Unfortunately, according to Consumer Reports, Ford only ranks as the 18th most reliable car brand out of 28. Combined with their average annual repair costs of $775, owning a Ford vehicle may become expensive over time.

Drivers can find mechanical coverage in the form of Ford’s manufacturer warranty; however, factory warranties don’t last forever. While Ford may offer extended warranties to customers, a vehicle service contract from a third-party provider is another option that can help you avoid the high costs of repair bills if an unexpected breakdown occurs.

Manufacturer’s Warranty Expiration Information:

When you purchase a new car from a dealership, it comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. In some cases, a pre-owned vehicle from a used car dealership can also come with a factory warranty. This coverage is placed on your car for a specified period of time as a type of “safety net” in case anything happens to your vehicle. It will help cover the cost of repairs and other eligible services.

The manufacturer’s coverage on your automobile only lasts so long (on average three years or 36,000 miles), and after that time is up, you may be liable for the cost of all future repairs. Auto insurance or mechanical breakdown insurance (MBI) policies can offer some assistance, but you may want to consider additional coverage.

Manufacturer coverage is available for many Ford model vehicles:

Club Wagon F150 Harley Davidson F350 Super Duty Crew Cab
E250 Cargo F-150 Lariat F350 Super Duty Super Cab
E350 Super Duty F150 Regular Cab Five Hundred

To prolong the life of your vehicle and continue to avoid costly repair bills, many drivers purchase an extended warranty. An extended warranty is basically an extension of your vehicle’s original manufacturer’s warranty and is generally provided by the automaker. However, you can also find a similar type of coverage in the form of vehicle service contracts (VSCs) or vehicle protection plans, and many providers offer extra perks or savings. Endurance, for example, offers 24/7 roadside assistance, rental car coverage, and more as standard features of our vehicle service contracts.

Extended Warranty Coverage for New and Used Vehicles

If you are purchasing coverage for your Ford vehicle from a third-party provider, it can come in the form of a vehicle service contract or a vehicle protection plan. Endurance Warranty Services offers drivers vehicle protection plans to help cover the cost of unexpected repairs and breakdowns. It works similarly to factory coverage and will pay for covered parts, labor, and taxes for your car’s repairs. By extending your vehicle protection, you could save money on repairs and end up extending the life of your car.

FAQs: Vehicle Service Contracts & Extended Warranties

  • Do I need a vehicle service contract if I am still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty?

Since the cost of a vehicle service contract or car warranty is based on the mileage, age, and condition of the vehicle at the time of purchase, we recommend purchasing a policy as soon as possible. Not only will this save you more money from the start, but you may also qualify for better coverage and overall plan cost if you purchase sooner.

  • Do I have to go to a certain repair facility to still be covered?

Unlike most extended warranties or vehicle protection plans, Endurance auto protection plans are honored anywhere at ASE Certified repair facility. Even if you relocate to another state, your vehicle will still be covered! You’ll gain peace of mind of knowing your protection plan is honored nationwide. Additionally, many Endurance plans are also transferable from one vehicle owner to another, which may help increase your list price at resale.

  • How does Endurance Warranty pay claims?

Generally, the certified repair shop where you take your car will submit your claim. Once your claim is approved, the shop performs the repairs and submits an invoice directly to Endurance. Claims are paid upfront, directly to the repair shop, for ALL covered repairs. We take care of the costs of parts, labor, and taxes associated with your auto protection plan. No waiting for reimbursement. No high out-of-pocket expense. We get you back on the road fast.
