Ford Fiesta Warranty Cautions... VOID?!

Post by sfunglee on 2011-09-27, 8:19 am

Dear all,

Not to boost I've been driving Ford for some times also FoMEC,and I've some frenz in SDAC include Spare Part Team, Service Manager & Sales Team... Just visited yesterday to try the S-Max as my dad wanted to get a MPV & to buy the Fiesta side mirror (scratch by a driver, anyway he going to pay...)

Ask them bout Fiesta issues or problems arrise...

For time being many problems arrise in gearbox (leaking & clutch problem - so far 30 units claimed), engine (some got problem - so far 3 units claimed) and wheel area (humming sound, drive shaft & etc)... NO WORRIES all can be claim as 3 years warranty programme...

What make you car can't be claimed?

To be continued....

The Thailand built is not up to standard yet?
Tom yum is sour and spicy. Does our Fiesta get the same taste?
Fofi owners are getting worried and concern for the quality does not meet EXPORT level.
Let's see what happen within our warranty. Exclamation
I hope we can afford Fofi always.

Engine Bay:

1) No Re-Painting - Everything is the engine bay aren't allow to be touch, repainting works will lift the engine & distrub all the system include engine & gearbox all warrnty void!
2) Intake - Mod to Open Pod System will void the inlet part include valve, sensor & piston BEWARE. If you upgrade to K&N, Pipercross & Ayam drop-in no issue. Manifold - please don't disturb!
3) Battery - During the first 3 years warranty programme our battery (imported as claimed, tag at around RM370.00-390.00) is only entitled for 1 year. After that you can change at your service centre for the same battery to continue the 3 years warranty programme. Becareful as SDAC advice some SC will sell cheaper brand about RM280~320 please don;t take that battery else warranty will be void too due to unstable input, electronics parts like ECU, sensor, display will not be claimable!
4) Ground Cable - If nothing happen you are lucky man, please don't install for the first 3 years. If youinstall do remove it, will be void as SC will recorded it especially SDAC (Dun play play!!!) If one day you try to claime for electronic part they will void it as you have previously install grounding cable in faulty method and lead to electronics spoilage - BEWARE!!!

Sorry, went off meeting till6pm KNS...
Home still tak boleh log in think my anti-virus firewall bla bla...

Well more to add:

Others item that void:

1) Changing new horn ( Hella / PIAA / FIAMM ) with added relay [which tap from battery termminal] also void your warranty including 1st year warranty on ur MF-Battery
2) Adding / changing car alarm system or anti-theft / GPS tarcking will also void your centre locking & alarm system warranty
3) Rear LEFT Fog-light which drawn 21W also void your lighting & electronics warranty... Be careful for those who install, you can remove the wiring if there anything wrong before send for claims otherwise SUSAH man!!!
4) Exhaust - you can add on tail but after the rear muffler pipping area only
5) Suspension - not the time to upgrade either, remain ori if you want to claims for free parts in future...

Many Thanks on such valuable info.. Smile

What if I've install the Ultra Racing chassis bar? Like Strut bar, Side Lower Bar & Rear Torsion Bar.

Will these chassis bar affect on the warranty too?

Thanks..

U said the engine and transmission warranty are not covered up to 100,000 KM? Shocked
So, what does 100,000 KM warranty will be covered?

Certain or most of the information you got it which was not mentioned in our KNS book study at all. We did not agree or sign-off any agreement regarding that warranty policy. How could we know? affraid Am I right or not?
This information did not informed and stated in BLACK and WHITE papers. We just knew this information with unofficial to owners. This did not listed in our KNS book at all. The most important major and minor services are also not stated at all for the service interval, which mileage should we service? scratch

Btw, I like this piece of information but it is still not clear enough. It is not a firm information. scratch

HI i dont know where u get the information but i check the website .

Battery failure within the first 3 years or 100,000 km, whichever comes first, will be covered under warranty.
Ford Parts and Accessories Warranty – 1 year or 20,000 km, whichever comes first and MUST be purchased from and serviced by an Authorized Ford Dealer.
All new Ford vehicles come with a standard 3 years warranty or 100,000 km whichever
comes first.
