5-Year Warranty Now Standard With Malaysian Ford Rangers
Existing Ford Ranger and Everest owners can now also purchase extended warranty packages from SDAC.
Owning a Ranger could now be an even more worry-free experience as Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole Ford distributor in Malaysia, has recently announced that all new Ranger models will now come with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Now covering up to 5-years or 160,000 km (whichever comes first), this new longer warranty period is a two-year extension to the three year/100,000 km warranty previously offered. To be available on all 2021 model year Rangers onwards, this longer warranty has also put the Ford pickup in the roughly the same footing as the standard 5-year warranties already offered by the other Japanese pickup manufacturers like Toyota, Isuzu and Mitsubishi.
Aside from the warranty extension for the new Rangers, SDAC is also currently offering extended warranty plans to existing Ranger and Everest customers (who’s cars are still under the 3-year warranty). These new extension plans will extend their existing warranty coverage to the same 5-year/160,000 km warranty as the new models.
Two plans are currently on offer by SDAC, with the first of which being the PremiumCARE plan. Costing RM 5,000 for the Ranger and RM 5,800 for the Everest, this particular extended warranty plan not only provides an additional two-year comprehensive coverage on over 1,000 components, but also a 10-day free vehicle rental benefit too when one’s Ford is undergoing a covered repair.
The other, cheaper plan on offer meanwhile is the PowertrainCARE plan. Costing only RM 3,500 on the Ranger and RM 3,800 on the Everest, this plan provides a two-year extended warranty on only 29 components within the engine, transmission and drivetrain. This particular plan also does not include the 10-day vehicle rental benefit as its more expensive counterpart.
Regardless on whichever plan though, all covered repairs are performed on both plans will take place at authorised service centres by certified technicians using genuine Ford parts. Additionally, either of the extended warranty plans are transferable to the next owner.
PRESS RELEASE: Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, today announced a new 5-year manufacturer’s warranty for its Ranger lineup, a two-year extension to the 3-year manufacturer’s warranty previously offered – giving better value to new Ranger owners.
In addition to that, two Extended Warranty Plans are also introduced for existing Ford Ranger owners.
“We understand that for our Ranger customers, their vehicles are not just point-to-point modes of transportation. They are an extension of their lifestyle – for work and play besides daily commutes for families and loved ones. With the new 5-year manufacturer’s warranty for our Ranger lineup, we aim to provide added value to customers as they go about their life’s adventures,” said Turse Zuhair, Head of Sales, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion.
Better Value with 5-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
To offer customers added value, all Ford Ranger Year Make 2021 model onwards will now come with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty or 160,000km (whichever comes first) – a 2-year extension to the previous 3-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first).
Extended Safety and Coverage
Meanwhile, existing Ford Ranger customers who are on the current 3-year warranty will have the option to purchase two Extended Warranty Plans which can be fulfilled at any Ford Authorised Service Centre, namely the PremiumCARE and PowertrainCARE.
The PremiumCARE plan provides a two-year comprehensive coverage on over 1,000 components, while the PowertrainCARE plan provides a two-year extended warranty on the engine, transmission and drivetrain.
