HOW WILL THIS AFFECT VEHICLE WARRANTY?


TracKey is warranted for factory-supplied material or workmanship, when installed on a Boss 302 or Laguna Seca by an authorized Ford or Lincoln Dealer, beginning upon dealer installation and registration of the part(s) with Ford Racing for the balance of 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the start date of the manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

This Limited Warranty replaces the existing manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty for engine, driveline and suspension parts, when the warranted Ford Racing Part is identified as the causal part of a warrantable concern.

Installation of these select Ford Racing parts by an authorized dealer does not nullify the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. All engine, driveline and suspension warranty issues not related to installation of Ford Racing parts remain subject to existing manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

To register for Ford Racing Limited Warranty, please contact the Ford Racing Tech Line at
(800) FORD-788 and provide the TracKey proof of purchase and installation invoices, date, mileage, and VIN.

Visit www.fordracingparts.com for additional information regarding the Ford Racing Limited Warranty.

5 dot 0 I am seeing what you were posting and reasearching while you posted, I also wondered what "This Limited Warranty replaces the existing manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty for engine, driveline and suspension parts" ment. It may be the FPP web site hasn't caught up yet but theres a link there that gives you a list of "warranted" parts. Track key aint there yet. I'ts warranted I'm sure but odd that FPP has to do it .............is it just like the manufactures warranty? guess we will find out............It isnt going to stop me from having it though LOL!
 

BLAZN BOSS

YES, so why does this make it only a three year one?................and it's retro to the date of sale!

oh what the f***.

I didn't read the part about the warranty being reduced to 3/36 for powertrain. :mad:

However, that is still better than an aftermarket tune that VOIDS your warranty...

Some say he has a tattoo of his face on his face.
And I'm sure there is a way to track the # of track key uses or if the track key was in use when something went 'wrong.'
 
The way that I read it is, that there is a 3/36 warranty from Ford Racing when the CAUSE of failure is related to the Trackey program, and that problems not related to Trackey are covered by the original warranty.

You could be right on that. If someone has the time call Ford's hotline at 800-367-3788 and ask them how the warranty is going to work.

HAHAHAHAHA! Well everyone wondered what would be the kink in the trackey program............it's not the program it's the warranty.........I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT IT, oh!........hmmmmmmmmm maybe not.........LOLOLOLOL.
