Purchase a Premium Maintenance Plan, Extended Service Plan, or Extras to Protect Your Ford

When you buy a new Ford car, truck, or SUV from Zeck Ford in Leavenworth, you probably want to make sure you do everything you can to protect your shiny new vehicle from damage and mechanical breakdowns. It’s both a transportation method and a great investment. And because you just purchased a car, you don’t want to be caught with any expenses at all toward car repairs and maintenance costs for the next several years.

Ford Motor Company, through your trusted Ford dealer, Zeck Ford, offers a Premium Maintenance Plan, Extended Service Plan, and additional protection plans you can purchase when you finance your vehicle, so you never have to worry about the condition of your car, truck, or SUV, and the maintenance and repairs it needs.

Take a look at the plans and coverages Ford offers to protect your vehicle, which are available when you purchase a new Ford truck from our local dealership.

All About the Ford Protect Extended Service Plan

The Ford Protect Extended Service Plan covers certain repairs that your vehicle may need, and all you will ever pay is the deductible; Ford will cover the rest. These service plans are popular for a reason; Ford has sold more than 35 million of them, because they give Ford owners peace of mind, knowing they won’t need to pay very much out-of-pocket in the event of an unexpected repair.

When you add a service plan to your car purchase, you’ll get interest-free financing for up to 24 months on most plans, for which everyone qualifies, regardless of their credit score, down payment, or type of financing. Every Ford and Lincoln dealership in the United States, Canada, and Mexico will honor your service plan, so you’ll never be without care anywhere you can drive your car on a contiguous land mass.

All repairs and maintenance tasks are done with genuine Ford parts and installed by our Ford-certified technicians in our service department at Zeck Ford. The plans even include rental vehicle benefits for up to ten days when your car must stay overnight for any covered repair. You pay only the deductible for the repair, and nothing at all for your rental.

With the Ford Protect Extended Service Plan, you can even cancel other services you pay for, like roadside assistance, which is included in your plan, 24 hours a day. And when you purchase coverage, you can transfer it to a new owner if you ever choose to sell your car during the coverage period. This can actually increase your car’s resale value.

Choose from four Extended Service Plan options:

  • PremiumCARE, which covers 1000+ components of your vehicle
  • ExtraCARE, which covers 113 components of your vehicle
  • BaseCARE, which covers 84 components of your vehicle
  • PowertrainCARE, which covers 29 components of your vehicle, specifically the powertrain

Additional Plans to Protect Your New Ford Truck or SUV

For more custom coverage, you might choose one or two additional plans that cover more specific aspects of your vehicle.

  • TireCARE, which covers tire damage from road debris
  • DentCARE, which gives you affordable options for repairing minor dings and chips to your vehicle’s exterior
  • WindshieldCARE, covers windshields damaged by rocks, metal, and other road debris, and repairs of chips and cracks
  • TripleCARE, for those who can’t choose which coverage they prefer. TripleCARE requires no deductible for any repairs for seven years, with no mileage maximums, on your tires, windshields, and body damage sustained during the course of ownership.

These additional plans are designed to keep your new Ford truck in mint condition and keep repair and maintenance costs low.

Discover the Premium Maintenance Plan from Ford Protect

This Ford maintenance plan is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to have to think about how much maintenance and inspections will cost over time. The Premium Maintenance Plan covers preventative care, like oil changes, and parts that need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. Tire inspections and rotations also are included, a truly great value.

Our premium plan keeps your vehicle running longer than one that doesn’t receive the same level of care. Your owner’s manual will outline all the maintenance tasks you should be doing on your new Ford truck. In fact, the maintenance action plan you’ll follow will be based on the content of your Scheduled Maintenance Guide in your manual. These actions can include:

  • Changing the engine oil and replacing the oil filter
  • Inspecting and rotating tires
  • Inspecting brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, brake lines, and parking brakes
  • Inspect wheel ends for end play and noise
  • Inspect and lubricate steering linkage, ball joints, suspension, driveshafts, and u-joints
  • Change transmission fluid
  • Replace fuel filter and engine air filter
  • Change engine coolant
  • Replace PCV valve
  • And other maintenance tasks if required

The maintenance plan even includes items like shock absorbers and struts, spark plugs, engine belts, coolant hoses, and wiper blades.

At each service, our Ford-certified mechanics in Leavenworth will perform a multi-point inspection, which includes checking the operation of all lights, windshield wipers, radiator, heater, air conditioning, exhaust system, steering system, and more. They’ll also check and refill any fluids.
