I hope people are aware of what is covered in the warranty not to get caught out. My 57 Focus has paint flaking off the bumper and the warranty is 1 year. If I had bought a van it would have been 3 years,whats that all about. Very unhappy customer.

yes so did I,paint is 1 year on all cars,3 years on vans. Rust and corrosion is 12 years on cars. Make sure the dealer stamps the book on the body and paintwork page,mine "forgot".

I had a similar moment of "QUOI?!" when the trim around the windscreen came loose and was told "trim warranty's only 12 months."

I don't think it's unique to ford though, I expect that any marque's warranty isn't actually as comprehensive as you'd expect it to be.
