What Is the Paint Warranty on a New Vehicle?

If the paint surface of the vehicle body requires attention due to a manufacturing defect, the necessary repairs will be performed free of charge by any Ford Authorised Repairer, regardless of any change in vehicle ownership during the warranty period.

Paint Surface Warranty Period

The paint surface warranty period is the same as the Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty applicable to your vehicle.

Paint Surface Warranty Exceptions

Ford is not responsible for any repair that is required as a direct result of:

  • Damage caused by neglect, flooding, accident, or improper use.
  • Failure to properly maintain paint and bodywork by regular cleaning in accordance with the owner's manual.
  • Factors beyond Ford's control, such as: airborne contamination, storm damage, stone chips, scratches and the use of unsuitable cleaning agents.
