At Dingwall Ford in Kenora, we want to be sure that all the friends and neighbors who buy from us understand all the bells and whistles on their vehicles. Our sales team likes to walk folks through all the safety features, available technology, and engine capabilities of the vehicle in which they’re most interested. We want to be sure you understand how to best take advantage of all you’re getting when you buy a Ford!
FordPass is one of those features that customers sometimes overlook; however, it can be a real game-changer for consumers. FordPass is a free app that provides one more way the Ford Company puts you in control of your journey.
No matter where we travel, we need to be able to stay connected if necessary. FordPass keeps you connected with your vehicle no matter where you may roam! It makes getting help in an emergency easier, provides vital statistics on your vehicle, and gives you special incentives with our FordPass Rewards program.
You already know that Ford warranties go further than our competitors’ warranties. We cover most new vehicles up to 60,000 miles or five years, whichever comes first. You also know that even with the best warranties in place, sometimes life happens.
With FordPass, you can drive with confidence, knowing that you have reliable roadside assistance, accessible from the palm of your hand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Ford Company wants you to be safe and protected. We are here when you need us. Here’s what we cover:
If you find yourself stuck, give us a call. We will send a reputable company to winch you out if you’re disabled for any reason - stuck or stranded. And it’s available within 100 ft (30 m) of a paved or county maintained road, so you won’t be left without assistance.
We can tow you, too! If the service isn’t prohibited by state or local law, we contract with eligible companies to tow your Ford to an authorized dealership within 35 miles (56 km). If you request a specific location beyond the covered 35 miles, you are responsible for the overage.
Sometimes, no matter how much we plan, we just lose track. Drivers tend to want to try and push their fuel limits a little bit further. If not prohibited by state or local regulations, we contract with independent companies to deliver up to 2 gallons (8 L) of gasoline or 5 gallons (20 L) of diesel fuel. We provide two no-charge occurrences within 12 months.
Did you lock yourself out? Don’t worry! We can get you back in.
Can’t get those lug nuts off? Need some help? Don’t sweat it. We’ll send out a reputable company to change your flat for you using your spare.
Batteries die. We get it. If it happens to you, we’ll send someone out to give you a jumpstart. If your battery doesn’t start, we will tow you to the nearest authorized Ford dealership.
When you use FordPass - or any automobile service for that matter - the operator is required to ask you a series of questions regarding your vehicle. In stressful situations, it can be challenging to remember those details.
Write down information like your vehicle make, model, color, license plate number, and VIN on an index card or piece of paper that you can keep handy in your console or glovebox. Tell everyone who uses the vehicle where this information is kept. Then, should you need those critical details quickly, you won’t have to scramble for them in a crisis.
Control with Connect
FordPass with FordPass Connect allows you to control complimentary remote features like start/stop, lock/unlock, and scheduling a start. Other critical pieces of useful information available are:
Locate a vehicle
The moment your vehicle is turned off, your app records the vehicle’s location. When you return and are unsure about where you parked, voila! You won’t waste time in a parking garage trying to remember where your car is anymore!
Vehicle status check
You can check important details like service maintenance schedules, gas levels, and other status updates, too.
Rewards and Credit
You can earn credits with FordPass Rewards. Discounts on routine service, maintenance visits, and even new vehicle purchases are available through our rewards program as you accumulate points on things you do every day.
You can also access Ford Credit from your FordPass app. Look up your financing agreement, make a payment, and check to see how many more payments are due, all from the palm of your hand.
Dingwall Ford and The Ford Company are always searching for new and innovative ways to make your experience comfortable and convenient. We think our FordPass app is a perfect example of that commitment.
Come by today and let us show you all we have to offer. You won’t be disappointed!
