The 2017 Ford Explorer warranty comes standard with a basic 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty or a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. These warranties are available with all five models, which include the Ford Explorer, Ford Explorer XLT, Ford Explorer Limited, Ford Explorer Sport, and the Ford Explorer Platinum.
The MSRP for this popular SUV model ranges from $31,600 – $53,235 with each model equipped with brand features including voice-activated technology SYNC®, LED tail lamps, and a rear view camera with washer.
Common repair problems reported for the Ford Explorer includes issues with the heater, rear wipers, exhaust, and coolant. More serious repair needs are less likely to occur within the first few years of ownership and may not become a problem until the initial manufacturer warranty has expired.
Facing a repair expense that is no longer covered under a warranty can cause an unexpected financial strain. Even if major repair is not required in the first few years after purchasing, it’s not an indicator for what may occur in the future. Normal wear and tear, increased mileage, and unpredictable weather elements all take a toll on the upkeep and repair requirements of any vehicle.
The best thing to do is be prepared for the potential of repairs down the road, which means finding extended repair coverage. A vehicle service contract is a more affordable way to gain repair coverage for your vehicle rather than having to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars at once for a broken heater or faulty exhaust. Explore your options and gain peace of mind with repair coverage that is available when you need it.
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.
