broken coil spring

I pulled into garage and heard boing! Right front coil spring broke. Ford will repace both front springs under extended waranty if you have a 2000
focus from the right plant and a broken spring. Its a 10 year 150000 mile warranty. My car qualifies and will get both springs replaced free!! Thanks Ford! Mike

It was apparantly for northern states in the US, where some of them put salt on the roads in the winter, and they didn't have a well enough protected spring on the front. I got mine replaced about 2 months ago, took it in for an oil change went to leave heard some strange grinding from the front end, and turned right around an went right back in, they said the spring broke, looked it up and my car qualified.

Not to make you feel bad but the minimum "standard" factory warranty on new cars sold in the U.S. is 3 years/36,000 miles, whichever comes first. That's all manufacturers, not just Ford.
Look at the bright side though, you get new models years before we do. You also get models that we'll never see over here. :-)

broken coil spring:

I read somewhere that GM is going to 100,000 mile warranties (entire car, not just drive train) in 2007. We'll see.
If it's true, and I was buying a new car in '07, I would sure give GM a close look.
I believe Hyndai is 60,000 miles now.

There is no such thing as a free lunch. Don't these type of warrantees mean that you have to get all your servicing, repairs new tyres etc. at an expensive price from main dealer rather than from the best value outlet - or do-it-yourself?
I once had free labour on the first car service at the dealer. My mistake was not asking the price of the materials. The dealer charged me around 4 times the price I would have paid for the oil and they even itemised the piece of plastic put over the seat and thick piece of 'branded' paper they put on the floor to protect my car from the mechanics oily boots!

We also get the models that are better built with quality components :) apart from coil packs :(
