What is the Ford Warranty on paint?

Paint is covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. This warranty provides coverage for defects in workmanship and material. 

If you have a paint-related concern, your Ford Dealer can determine if it is covered under warranty.

What Is Not Covered

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover surface rust and deterioration of paint, trim, and appearance items that result from use or exposure to the elements.

Some examples include:

  • Stone chips, scratches
  • Dings, dents
  • Road salt
  • Tree sap
  • Lightning, hail, windstorm
  • Earthquake, water, flood

We recommend that you wash and wax your vehicle regularly to remove harmful deposits from the vehicle’s surfaces to help protect the finish. For instructions on how to clean your vehicle, refer to the Vehicle Care section in your Owner's Manual.
