Nationwide 20 Year 200,000 Mile Warranty

Our 20-Year/200,000-Mile Warranty at Tallahassee Ford

If you’ve shopped our new, used or Ford Certified Used inventories before, you’ve probably heard about our legendary 20-Year/200,000-Mile Warranty that comes on most new and most pre-owned vehicles — free of charge. That’s right! Your vehicle could be covered for 20 years or 200,000 miles, whichever comes first. What’s covered? The same components that are covered under the factory Powertrain Warranty from Ford, which means that from the oil pan to the transmission case, if you’ve purchased a vehicle from us at Tallahassee Ford, you’ll be free from paying for those minor repairs due to flaws or defects in factory-installed parts.
