Now if Ford would upgrade their Bumper to Bumper to 5/60K and Powertrain to 7/100K, I would 100% surely buy a Ford. If Quality is Job #1, Ford should have no problem doing this. The warranty coverage is the PRIMARY reason we purchased a Hyundai over a Ford. I would prefer to buy American/Ford, but the higher warranty coverage (not a “purchased” extended warranty) guarantees me 2 additional years of cost free repairs.

I sell both Hyundai’s and Ford’s. There is no resaon for Ford to extended the free factory warranty. Quality is Job #1. And that is why Hyundai needs to have the extra warranty on their vehicle’s. Ford does not have nearly as many issues per vehicle built like Hyundai does. Also Ford out sells Hyunai, so therefore Hyundai needs to give the extra free warranty extension to try and get a better mareke percentage in sales. So if you truly care about quality and buying American, then there is no excuse not to.

I see things exactly the opposite. “If” Ford quality was #1, they would have ABSOLUTELY NO problem implementing a 5/60K B2B warranty. Ford is losing potential sales because of it. If Fords don’t need repairs, why not extend the standard B2B warranty. They have nothing to lose. I don’t care who sells more, or who has more/less issues, I care about MY warranty/pocketbook. BTW, We have a 2006 Hyundai and have had ZERO problems with it. Zero.
