What Does Warranty Cover and Exclude?

There are various warranties available on Ford products. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality, and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty

This covers the repair or replacement of any parts of the vehicle found to be defective as a result of a manufacturing or material defect within the warranty period. This part will be repaired or replaced free of charge by any authorised dealer, regardless of any changes of vehicle ownership during the Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty period.

Parts Warranty

Ford Motor Company will repair or replace any properly installed new Ford or Ford re-manufactured part or accessory found to be defective in factory supplied material or workmanship during the service parts or accessory warranty or the remaining portion of the Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty depending on when your part or accessory was fitted.

Corrosion Protection Warranty

Your Ford original body is covered against perforation for 5 years (60 months) from the vehicle's warranty commencement date. However, surface rusting caused by scratches or stone chips, isn’t covered and other exclusions apply.
