As with any car manufacturer, your Ford's standard warranty agreement is limited—most last 3 years, or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first). Make sure you know when your factory warranty expires, and what the stipulations of the agreement are.
If you are worried that the level of protection you're getting from your manufacturer's warranty isn't enough—or want to extend your coverage once it expires—you can purchase an extended vehicle protection plan from either your local Ford dealer or a third-party provider like CARCHEX.
