We have a 2014 ford focus.
Purchased vehicle in 2014. Had one repair attempt in 2015. Second repair attempt (17 days) in 2018.
Vehicle was within the powertrain warranty period for both repairs.
After the second repair attempt in 2018 we received a letter from Ford stating that they were extending the warranty for our vehicle to 7 years / 100k miles.
We are no longer within the original powertrain warranty due to mileage (65k miles), but we are still within the extended warranty period that Ford provided to us.
We are still experiencing mechanical issues (transmission).
When we bring the vehicle in for another repair attempt, it will be conducted under the extended (7yr/100k warranty). I know we're out of the lemon law period, but if the vehicle is still not fixed is it still possible for us to make a mag moss warranty claim against Ford or do all of the repairs have to be under the same specific warranty?
Vehicle purchase (2014)
Repair 1 - Powertrain warranty (2015)
Repair 2 - Powertrain warranty (2018)
Repair 3 - Extended transmission warranty (2019)
If Ford extended the warranty and the repairs are under the warranty, there should be no need for a Mag-Moss issue absent their refusal to honor the warranty repair. As to the remedies available it would depend on the issue but a 3 year gap in repair events would not be helpful on a repair frequency or replacement issue.
