Our Editor's Notes on Ford's Phone-Based Customer Care

Ford Motor Company, also known as Ford, is an American manufacturer of automobiles. As the second-largest U.S. car manufacturer and fifth-largest automobile manufacturer in the world, it isn't surprising that Ford gets a lot of requests for customer service.

Why do People Call Ford Customer Support?

People call Ford customer support for a range of reasons, including:

  • Questions about Ford products and services
  • Questions about warranty coverage
  • Credit inquiries
  • Request for service and repairs
  • Technical support for services like Sync(R) or Ford's website

Ford offers multiple options for getting in touch, including phone support, live chat, and social media messaging.

Best Practices for Calling Ford Customer Service

There are several things that you can do to help ensure that your contact with Ford customer service is handled professionally and quickly:

  • Before calling Ford customer service, make sure you are calling the right number. Ford has different toll-free lines for general support, Lincoln concierge service, roadside assistance, and credit applications.
  • Next, assemble any relevant documentation. These may include invoices, advertising flyers, billing statements, communications between yourself, Ford and/or the dealership, warranties and contracts.
  • If you are calling about a technical support issue, be near your computer or device so that you and the customer service representative can troubleshoot together.
  • Have pen and paper handy so that you can take notes during the call.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling Ford Customer Service?

Consumers seem relatively satisfied with Ford's customer service. However, there are some reports of Ford being defensive when confronted about known problems with its vehicles.

What Kind of Issues can a Ford Customer Service Representative Resolve?

A Ford customer service representative can resolve many issues, including providing guidance on vehicle features, help with technical problems regarding Ford's website and in-car communication systems, answering questions about credit applications and providing support through roadside assistance and the Lincoln concierge desk.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to Ford Customer Service?

A Ford customer service representative is likely to refer customers to local dealerships to deal with mechanical issues. In addition, credit issues can be very tricky. It can also be disappointing if one is turned down for credit. Customer service representatives don't make credit decisions and may not be able to provide a satisfactory response as to why you weren't approved for the credit you want.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with Ford?

If you get off the phone with Ford and feel as though the call did not resolve your issues or answer your question, there are several things you can do to get a resolution.

First, review the notes you took during your conversation with Ford customer service. You may be able to identify miscommunications or other issues that could have resulted in a bad customer service call.

Next, call back. The next Ford representative that you speak to may have more training or experience and be in a better position to offer a resolution.

If a second call is ineffective, try getting in touch with Ford customer support in another way. You can try using live chat or social media, both of which offer you the advantage of providing you with a written transcript of your communication. This can come in handy if you have to escalate your case.

You can also send a letter through postal mail to Ford. While this is a slower process, you may find that it is very effective, particularly if you are dealing with a serious complaint. Send the letter by certified mail so that you have proof of mailing and receipt.

Another option is to connect with your dealership. The manager or owner may be willing to advocate for you with Ford.
