The Ford C-Max hybrid was first introduced in the U.S. in 2012. The compact car is known for its agility and responsive steering. Critics favor its interior due to its “ample headroom” and “appealing design and excellent build quality.”
The Ford C-Max is equipped to provide maximum driving efficiency with a dual-LCD advanced SmartGauge with EcoGuide. The hybrid receives 41 city mpg and 36 highway mpg and starts at a MRSP of $24,170.
The Ford standard warranties apply to its hybrid models as well. Drivers can choose from a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty or a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. With regards to hybrid vehicles and your state, check with your dealership regarding specifics of what parts are covered.
Once the original manufacturer warranty expires, drivers are left without coverage, unless they sign up for a vehicle service contract to prevent a gap between plans. The need for vehicle repairs can happen at any time and many times, they occur without notice. It can be costly and inconvenient, especially when you add on extraneous costs for roadside assistance, car rentals, and/or towing expenses.
A vehicle service contract covers these costs. Additionally, an assigned administrator arranges for payment to be made directly to the repair shop. This avoids the inconvenience of paperwork and multiple calls back and forth between a claims specialist and repair personnel.
Don’t allow repair coverage lapse on your vehicle. Look into your extended coverage options before your current manufacturer warranty expires. Get the information you need to determine the best plan of action for the future of your vehicle. No one wants to think about dealing with defective parts or non-functioning vehicles, but being prepared helps you have more control of the situation when repairs are needed.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
