Where Can I Get a Mercury Extended Warranty?

Mercury was started by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1930s as an entry-level premium car that could bridge the gap between the affordable Ford and the luxurious Lincoln brands of cars. As a result, Mercury shared a lot of commonalities with both these brands until it was closed down in 2010 when the Ford Motor Company decided to focus its attention on the Ford and Lincoln brands.

The last Mercury model year was 2011, and since the maximum coverage offered by the original factory warranty was for up to five years, your Mercury is not covered by a vehicle protection plan right now unless you purchased a Mercury extended warranty some time ago.

While Ford does provide support for Mercury vehicles that are still on the road, any expensive car repairs that come your way could potentially throw a huge wrench in your financial goals if you are not prepared. An extended warranty from CARCHEX can help protect your Mercury—and your budget—if you plan to keep driving your car for many more years.

What Did the Mercury Warranty Cover?

The original Mercury warranty benefits were similar to that of Ford, though they were some minor differences. If you have a 2005-2011 model car, you would have gotten the following Mercury warranty inclusions when you purchased it new.

Mercury Warranty Coverage

  • New Vehicle Limited Warranty (bumper-to-bumper coverage) for 3 years/36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty for 5 years/60,000 miles
  • Corrosion perforation warranty for 5 years/unlimited miles
  • Safety restraint warranty for 5 years/50,000 miles
  • 6.0L PowerStroke® Diesel Engine for 5 years/100,000 miles
  • Federal emissions warranty coverage ranging from 2 years/24,000 miles up to 8 years/80,000 miles for certain listed parts
  • Wiper blade replacement for 12 months/unlimited miles
  • Wheel alignments and tire balancing for 12 months/12,000 miles
  • Brake pad/lining replacements for 12 months/18,000 miles
  • 24/7 roadside assistance for 3 years/36,000 miles

Earlier model Mercury vehicles came with a 2-year/24,000-mile basic bumper-to-bumper coverage and a 6-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Why Do You Need an Extended Warranty?

Mercury cars are reliable and built to last. Even if your Mercury is over 10 years old, it could probably keep running for another 10 or so if properly maintained. However, like all other vehicles, your Mercury has more than 30,000 components, which can make repairs and breakdowns inevitable as it ages.

According to RepairPal, a Mercury owner shells out $775 in repairs every year on average.

Some common Mercury repairs and costs are as follows.

Model Replacement Cost
Mercury Capri Oil pan gasket replacement $248 to $320
Mercury Grand Marquis Engine oil filter adapter replacement $567 to $588
Mercury Mariner Oxygen sensor replacement $148 to $202
Mercury Topaz Windshield water pump replacement $147 to $157

Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed way to know when your car might need a particular repair. If something goes wrong with your car tomorrow, how would you pay for the repairs? Would you have to dip into your savings or take out a loan? If your answer is yes, then a Mercury extended warranty that covers such repairs and gets you back on the road quicker could be a better choice for you.

Can You Afford To Pay These Repair Costs?

If you are still not convinced, here are a few more reasons why a Mercury extended warranty could be in your best interests.

  • An extended warranty could end up saving you money because the total cost of your car repairs is likely to be more than that of your protection plan. When you purchase a vehicle service contract (VSC) for your Mercury, you are essentially pre-paying for these expenses in low, monthly payments that will likely amount to less than what you would have to pay out of your pocket to the repair shop.
  • If you plan to sell your car soon, a transferable Mercury extended warranty could add to your car value and help you strike a better deal with the buyer.
  • Extended warranties come with additional benefits, such as roadside assistance and rental car reimbursement, that can provide extra peace of mind when driving an older car.

Mercury Extended Warranty Options

The Mercury brand may have closed down, but that doesn’t mean you have to continue driving your Mercury car without protection. If you’re looking to buy extended Mercury protection, you have two options: you can either buy a Ford Extended Service Plan (ESP) from a participating Ford dealer or an extended vehicle protection plan from a trusted, third-party provider like CARCHEX.

Ford Extended Service Plans

Ford ESPs are backed by the Ford Motor Company, are transferable, and come with additional benefits such as roadside assistance and rental car benefits. There are four levels of coverage: PremiumCare, ExtraCare, BaseCare, and PowertrainCare.

  • The PremiumCare Service Plan is their most comprehensive plan and provides coverage for labor and parts to repair more than 1,000 components, including the engine, steering, transmission, brakes, and electrical. Terms can last up to 8 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. Covered repairs include defects in material or workmanship as well as normal wear and tear.
  • The ExtraCare Service Plan provides coverage for major car systems and gaskets, seals, and internal engine parts—113 components total.
  • The BaseCare Service Plan covers 84 components that affect drivability and the overall performance of your Mercury.
  • The PowertrainCare Service Plan covers 29 covered components to protect the vehicle’s engine and transmission.

However, as with most dealer-backed extended warranties, Ford ESPs are accepted at only Ford and Lincoln dealerships across the country, which can be a problem if your nearest repair center is a few hours away. Also, Ford extended warranties are generally available only for vehicles still covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty, though some Ford dealers do offer the plans for older Mercury vehicles with expired warranties, as well. If you are interested, you’ll need to see your local dealer and find out if they are able to offer you a Mercury extended warranty.

Your second option is to buy a warranty from CARCHEX for your Mercury.

Why Buy an Extended Warranty from CARCHEX for Your Mercury?

While all Ford dealers or third-party auto warranty providers may not be ready to provide extended warranty coverage for your Mercury with high mileage, CARCHEX covers Mercury vehicles model year 1994 or newer and under 250,000 miles.

Here are a few reasons why CARCHEX is the right choice for an auto warranty.

Low-priced Plans

Because our contract providers are all competing for your business, CARCHEX is able to provide affordable extended warranties for Mercury vehicles. The low monthly payments and flexible financing options can protect you from paying up front for expensive repairs.

Large Network of Repair Centers

Not all third-party auto warranty providers offer coverage for Mercury vehicles since it is a defunct brand. However, CARCHEX has an extensive network of more than 30,000 licensed repair centers, including independent facilities, national chains, and dealerships.

Pair that with our multiple coverage tiers and plans, and you can be sure that your car gets the same protection and benefits as other brands. In addition, CARCHEX also provides support in dealing with your auto mechanic so that you always get the best deal.

Trusted by Industry Leaders

When you put money toward protecting an important investment like your vehicle, it is always nice to have assurance that you made the best decision. CARCHEX has been in the industry for over two decades and enjoys an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, along with endorsements from other industry leaders like Edmunds.com, Thoroughly Reviewed, and RepairPal.

Custom Coverage

Dealer warranties are often preset and fixed with very little options to customize the plans to suit specific vehicle or owner needs. At CARCHEX, you can choose from five levels of coverage with different plans and terms to ensure that your extended warranty is custom-tailored to your vehicle, driving habits, and budget.

Multiple Perks and Benefits

All CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plans for Mercury vehicles come with added benefits and perks such as roadside assistance, trip interruption services, towing, gas delivery, rental cars, and more.

No Waiting for Reimbursement

Unlike other warranty providers that ask customers to pay for the repairs up front and then get the bills reimbursed, CARCHEX pays the repair shops directly to ensure that the customer has a hassle-free experience.

Transferable Contracts

If you plan to sell your Mercury soon, a transferable extended warranty from CARCHEX could help boost your Mercury’s value with the added protection it provides.

Exceptional Customer Service
