Ask Smithy Xtra Rusty Ford Ranger

Asked by Franklin

My son has 2008 Ford Ranger with a well type body that has started to rust around the tie-downs. Ford told him there was a 5-year warranty on the body, but the dealer he purchased it from has fobbed him off. What should he do?

Before he does anything else he should read the warranty and understand what it includes, and from that what it doesn’t. Body warranties often only provide cover against actual perforation, and not the surface rust you say your son’s car has. Once he understands the provisions of the warranty he can then talk to his dealer, and Ford if that might advance his case.
