Ford India has just expanded the scope of its Ford Protect Extended Warranty service, it now provides coverage of up 1,50,000km or 6 years.
The extended warranty covers all mechanical and electrical failures as well as labour for their repairs. What it doesn’t cover is the periodic maintenance services, wear and tear of parts and accident repairs.
New coverage plans are available for the Aspire, EcoSport, Endeavour, Figo and Freestyle
The plans provide combined extended warranty and road-side assistance services
The costs depend on engine and period of purchasing the extension
Customers can purchase a combined extended warranty (EW) and road-side assistance (RSA) for the fourth, fifth and sixth years all of which allow for 1.5 lakh kilometres of usage.
The costs for purchasing the extension depend on the engine and how long after the original purchase of the car, the extended warranty is being purchased. The main time frames are within 90 days, between 91 – 365 days and lastly between 1 to 3 years.
We have put together the new extended warranty packages Ford offers along with its pricing below.
