Following in the footsteps of Pontiac, Saturn, and Hummer, Ford is cutting ties with the 72-year old Mercury brand. According to an Associated Press article, the move is designed to keep Ford running lean and mean, while beefing up the Lincoln luxury brand.
Mercury vehicles will be available throughout the Summer at discounted prices at over 1,700 dealerships. In the meantime, if you do own a Mercury vehicle, it is important that you contact the dealer you purchased from to make sure your warranty will still be honored at that location. Chances are Mercury drivers will also be able to obtain extended warranties through Ford Motors as well if they desire.
Another important thing for Mercury drivers to remember is that even though the brand is fading, their rights under Federal and State Laws are not. if you do find that your Mercury vehicle is back in the shop for repeated repairs, drop us a line or call us at 1-800 LEMON LAW and we can still help you file a claim and seek recourse. Ford Motor Company is still taking responsibility for the quality of the vehicles.
