If you decide to sell a vehicle still protected by the original factory warranty, the remainder of the warranty will be fully transferred to the new owner. However, roadside assistance coverage drops from lifetime coverage to the remaining duration of the powertrain warranty.
Ford notes that bumper-to-bumper coverage may occasionally include no-cost, service-type vehicle improvements to a Lincoln vehicle. These are typically completed during routine maintenance services or repair visits.
Benefits Of Lincoln Warranty Coverage
Aside from coverage for parts and labor, Lincoln factory warranty coverage for new vehicles comes with some surprising benefits.
Additional Roadside Assistance Perks
It bears repeating that original Lincoln owners have 24/7 roadside assistance coverage for the lifetime of the vehicle. Subsequent owners can enjoy these benefits for the remainder of the vehicle’s original powertrain warranty coverage, 6 years or 70,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
Lincoln’s roadside assistance coverage includes standard services such as towing, flat tire assistance, lockout assistance, and fuel delivery. This program also includes travel reimbursement of up to five days for a maximum of $1,000. Travel protection coverage helps with lodging, rental vehicles, and meals for drivers who experience a mechanical issue 100 miles or more from home.
Roadside assistance coverage also comes with winching service, which will pull a vehicle back onto the road from within 100 feet of the roadside.
Lincoln Pickup And Delivery
New Lincoln vehicles come with 4 years or 50,000 miles of Pickup and Delivery, a service that provides scheduled pickup and dropoff of Lincoln vehicles when they need repairs. Lincoln Pickup and Delivery also provides a Lincoln loaner for up to two days during scheduled vehicle services.
Mileage limitations may apply for customers more than 20 miles from servicing Lincoln dealerships.
Lincoln extends warranty coverage to owners who drive their vehicles in foreign countries under two conditions:
- The vehicle was purchased through the Ford Export Operations Military Sales Program
- The vehicle was purchased or leased from Ford Motor Company in the U.S. or U.S. territories and originally licensed and operated in the U.S. or Canada
Lincoln owners may take their vehicles to the nearest Lincoln dealer in whichever country or may receive reimbursement for repairs completed at a repair facility other than Lincoln.
What’s Not Covered In Lincoln’s Warranty?
