Ford Offers Buyers Peace of Mind with Ford Promise
For customers who are nervous about buying or leasing a new or used vehicle right now, Ford is aiming to provide some peace of mind with the new Ford Promise program. In the event that you lose your job within the first year of ownership or leasing, customers will have the option to return the vehicle with little to no extra financial burden.
With the new Ford Promise program, customers who purchase or lease a vehicle through Ford Credit and lose their jobs within a year can return the vehicle. Ford Credit will value the vehicle using NADA trade-in value, then reduce the outstanding balance by that amount, plus up to an additional $15,000. Any remaining balance, deferred payments or vehicle damage will need to be paid by the customer, and then the account will be reported as close and paid.
“We fell like right now, the economy is at the stage of recovery where people want things to be back to normal, they want to buy, but they’re still a little nervous about what the future holds,” said Mark LaNeve of Ford. “We want them to know we understand that, and we’re here to support them in their buying decisions.”
The enrollment period for the Ford Promise program runs until September 30, and customers can take advantage of the offer until up to a year after their purchase date. If you would like more information about the program, contact Ford Credit or give us a call at Tuttle-Click Ford in Irvine, CA.
