Ford roadside assistance

New Fords built in 2007 or newer get free roadside assistance for up to 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. Ford increased this benefit from the 3-year, 36,000 mile coverage from 2006 models and older.

The Ford roadside assistance service includes:

  • Towing up to 35 miles to the nearest Ford dealership
  • Battery jump start
  • Flat tire change if you have a spare
  • Gas delivery if you run out of fuel, including 2 gallons of gas or 5 gallons of diesel
  • Lockout if you lost your key

To use Ford roadside assistance, call Ford’s 24/7 roadside hotline at 1-800-241-3673. You’ll need to provide your vehicle’s make, model, color, VIN and license plate number when you call.

New Ford drivers can skip adding this coverage to a car insurance policy. Drivers with older Fords that no longer have roadside warranty coverage can still use Ford’s roadside and towing coverage for a one-time fee, or you can add on roadside assistance to your car insurance policy to benefit from roadside help when you need it.
