Your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN): 12345678901234567

 

At Ford Motor Company, we are committed not only to building high quality, dependable products, but also to building a community of happy, satisfied customers. To demonstrate that commitment, we are providing a no-charge Customer Satisfaction Program for your vehicle with the VIN shown above.

Why are you receiving this notice? Your vehicle was ordered with the optional engine block heater (EBH), but was not delivered with the required unique extension cord. The EBH extension cord attaches to the EBH plug, located in a housing in the left fog lamp bezel.
What is the effect? Without the unique extension cord, the EBH cannot be used.
What will Ford and your dealer do? In the interest of customer satisfaction, Ford Motor Company has included an EBH extension cord with this letter, free of charge, under the terms of this program.
How long will it take? Dealer repairs are not required for this customer satisfaction program.
What should you do? Because the EBH extension cord was shipped directly to you, along with this letter, it is not necessary to schedule an appointment with your dealer to have this customer satisfaction program completed.

NOTE: You can receive information about Recalls and Customer Satisfaction Programs through our FordPass App. The app can be downloaded through the App Store or Google Play. In addition there are other features such as reserving and paying for parking in certain locations and controlling certain functions on your vehicle (lock or unlock doors, remote start) if it is equipped to allow control.

Have you previously paid for this repair? If you purchased an EBH extension cord before the date of this letter, you may be eligible for a refund. Refunds will only be provided for an engine block heater extension cord. To verify eligibility and expedite reimbursement, give your paid original receipt to your dealer before November 30, 2019. To avoid delays, do not send receipts to Ford Motor Company.
What if you no longer own this vehicle? If you no longer own this vehicle, and have an address for the current owner, please forward this letter and EBH extension cord to the new owner.  You received this notice because our records, which are based primarily on state registration and title data, indicate that you are the current owner.
Can we assist you further? If you have difficulties getting your vehicle repaired promptly and without charge, please contact your dealership’s Service Manager for assistance. RETAIL OWNERS: If you have questions or concerns, please contact our Ford Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you. If you wish to contact us through the Internet, our address is: www.Fordowner.com.

For the hearing impaired call 1-800-232-5952 (TDD). Representatives are available Monday through Friday: 8:00AM – 8:00PM (Eastern Time).

FLEET OWNERS: If you have questions or concerns, please contact our

Fleet Customer Information Center at 1-800-34-FLEET, choose Option #3, and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you. If you wish to contact us through the Internet, our address is: www.fleet.ford.com. Representatives are available Monday through Friday: 8:00AM – 8:00PM(Eastern Time).
