Ford C-Max Energi Warranty & Scheduled Maintenance Services

Automotive Questions answered at #GreshamService
To answer your questions , the factory warranty on a C-Max Energi (plug-in version hybrid) for the battery is 10 years or 150,000 miles in Oregon since we are a California emissions state.  Other places around the country it 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.  The battery is covered under the Unique Component Warranty section of your warranty guide.  If you need another copy of your warranty guide you can visit owner.ford.com and enter your VIN.  You can get electronic copies of all of those books that used to be in your glove box.

There are also extended warranties available for the Ford C-Max Energi with lots of options available.  The great thing about Ford warranties is that you can take them to any Ford Dealership no matter where in the country you happen to be at the moment.  Find the right extended service plan for you >>> Read More. 

The battery has been designed to span the life of the vehicle.  If you did have to replace your 7.6 kWh Lithium Ion Battery today it would run about $8,500.  Just a FYI.

As for the second part of your question, the C-Max has been praised for great reliability and easy maintenance.  Your Ford C-Max Energi has Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor technology.  This is an advanced system that calculates the oil change interval based on actual vehicle use and operating conditions - up to 2 years and 20,000 miles.  You can also always contact the Quicklane Manager at Gresham Ford to ask for specific advice regarding your vehicle.  Conditions that can accelerate your need to change the oil include short-distance stop-and-go driving or driving extreme temperatures.  You will know when the monitor is ready for a maintenance service because you will see a ENGINE OIL CHANGE DUE and/or OIL CHANGE REQUIRED message in your center stack display.  You will want to get your oil changed within 500 miles of the message first appearing.  Remember the Quicklane inside Gresham Ford is open until midnight weekdays.
