Ford Improves Powertrain Warranty for 2007 Models

August 8, 2006

DEARBORN, MI – Ford has improved its powertrain-limited warranties for 2007 Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. The new warranties are five years or 60,000 miles for Ford and Mercury vehicles and six years or 70,000 miles for Lincoln products. Powertrain coverage continues after the expiration of the basic bumper-to-bumper warranty. Ford’s bumper-to-bumper warranties will continue unchanged, with three years or 36,000 miles for Ford and Mercury vehicles and four years or 50,000 miles for Lincoln vehicles. The powertrain limited warranty covers critical engine, transmission, and front- or rear-wheel-drive components, including 4x4 and all-wheel-drive components and factory-installed superchargers and turbochargers. Ford will also offer complimentary roadside assistance, including towing, fuel, and lock-out service for the entire warranty period.

Different coverage limits apply to diesel and hybrid powertrains:

  • Ford and Mercury hybrids: extended eight-year/100,000-mile limited warranty that covers hybrid components, except in states that have adopted California emissions requirements, where the warranty is 10 years or 150,000 miles.
  • Ford 6.0L PowerStroke diesel: five-year/100,000-mile engine warranty after base three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty expires. The $100 deductible that applied after the expiration of the bumper-to-bumper warranty will be dropped.
  • Ford Focus: powertrain extended service coverage will essentially stay the same: five-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty with no deductible. Customers can receive a free five-year/100,000-mile extended service plan with a $100 per-repair deductible after the base warranty period, where allowed by law.
