Ford Protect Etch Care

Home / Theft Recovery Coverage

Peace−of−mind protection for your vehicle.

EtchCare

The true cost of auto theft goes beyond simply the loss of your vehicle.

If your vehicle is ever stolen, and your insurance company follows common industry practices, they may only cover your vehicle´s market value at the time of the loss. Fortunately, a Ford Protect EtchCARE product offers you a theft deterrent and recovery system helping to minimize your losses.

You can take advantage of this limited warranty benefit − up to $5,000 − which could be applied toward the purchase of a replacement vehicle and other expenses.

You can only purchase EtchCare at the time of vehicle purchase and only from the dealer that sells the vehicle. Not available in New York or Utah.

Our system ensures peace of mind.

  • Distinctive anti-theft warning window decals used to deter vehicle theft
  • Vehicle marked with traceable identification codes used to identify the owner of a recovered vehicle
  • Up to $2,500 or $5,000 Limited Warranty Benefit if the theft deterrent system fails to prevent the theft of the vehicle, and the vehicle is declared a total loss because either the vehicle is not recovered or it is recovered but damaged beyond repair (availability may vary by state)
  • Transferable coverage may add to the resale value of your vehicle; transfer fee applies
  • Choose the plan that’s right for you, with coverage options up to 5 years
  • Monthly payment option if you include the purchase price within your auto financing

Coverage exclusions may apply:

  • Vehicles stolen outside the United States, its territories or Canada
  • Vehicles stolen when unlocked or with the keys inside
  • Vehicles stolen by family members or others with access to the vehicle’s keys

Protect your investment.
