Here's everything you need to know about Ford warranties for 2015 models—what's covered by the original factory warranty, when it expires, and where to go when you need coverage beyond the standard warranty term.
Keep reading to learn more about CARCHEX extended warranties and how to find the best one for your 2015 Ford.
What Is Covered by a 2015 Ford Factory Warranty?
All 2015 Ford models—with the exception of the F-650, F-750, and any hybrid or electric vehicles—come with a standard warranty plan. Ford will cover the cost of any repairs or replacements under the terms of the warranty, which includes:
- Bumper-to-bumper coverage for three years or 36,000 miles
- A powertrain warranty good for five years or 60,000 miles
- Coverage for the safety restraint system for five years or 60,000 miles
- Corrosion protection for five years at unlimited mileage
- Five years or 100,000 miles of coverage for powerstroke diesel engines
- Roadside assistance for five years or 60,000 miles
What You Don't Get with a Ford Factory Warranty
Always read the fine print to know where the gaps in your coverage lie. Ford’s 2015 warranty offering comes with some stipulations that can void the coverage if not met. Ford will not award warranty protection for vehicles that:
- Have been determined to have not been properly operated and maintained from the time of purchase until the time of the claim
- Were not taken to a Ford dealership for the necessary repairs or replacements
- Experienced damage during an accident, collision, objects striking the vehicle, fire, or explosion
- Were damaged as a result of theft or vandalism
- Were damaged as a result of the use of improper fuel or fluids
- Were driven through water deep enough to infiltrate the engine
- Were altered or modified in particular ways
- Were damaged as a result of weather or natural disasters
It's not surprising that many Ford drivers don't understand that the factory warranty contains some serious loopholes that could leave them without coverage when hit with the cost of a large repair.
Common Ford Car, Truck, and SUV Problems
So what kind of problems and repair costs can you expect with your 2015 model? Consumer review sites and auto industry resources like Edmunds, RepairPal, and ConsumerAffairs are a great place to start.
Below are many problems Ford owners experience with their vehicles:
- Ford Focus drivers often report alternator problems, which can run as much as $1,700 to repair.
- Ford Explorer and F-Series truck owners report having to replace the head gasket, costing them upward of $3,200 for Explorers and $4,311 for the trucks.
- Ford Fusion drivers often need to replace their front wheel bearings, which can make a dent as deep as $802.
- Ford Fusion owners commonly report problems with catalytic converters, whose replacement cost can run as high as $1,460.
Is an Extended Ford Warranty Worth It?
All warranty protection for Ford’s 2015 models will expire by 2020. If you hope to keep your Ford beyond that (or wish to boost its resale value), you may want to consider an extended warranty.
After all, owners of a 2015 Ford can expect to pay an average of more than $9,000 in maintenance and repairs by 2025.
