What Is the Ford U.S. Warranty Overseas?

The U.S. Warranty applies to cars and light trucks built for sale and use in the U.S. and the U.S. federalized territories that meet the following criteria:

  • Ordered through a post exchange or ship’s store of the U.S. Armed Services and shipped to the U.S. federalized territories or a foreign country, or
  • Purchased from and delivered directly by the Company (e.g., U.S. Government, American Red Cross), or 
  • Originally registered/licensed and operated in the U.S. federalized territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, or any other U.S. federalized territory, or
  • Purchased, registered/licensed, and operated in the U.S., but then taken by the owner (one who did not purchase the vehicle for resale purposes) to a U.S. federalized territory or any foreign country for business/personal use.

If a vehicle needs warranty repairs and falls into one of the four categories listed above, but is not a model ordinarily sold in that U.S. federalized territory or that foreign country through an authorized dealer, dealers are encouraged to provide that warranty service at no cost to the customer. However, it may be necessary for the vehicle owner to pay the servicing dealer, save the repair order and receipt, and present the documentation to a Ford Dealer in the U.S. for refund consideration under the U.S. warranty.
