Reimbursement Eligibility

 

To help make sure that nothing holds you back,

we reimburse eligible customers up to $1,000

towards the installation of adaptive driving aids or equipment. 

Who is Eligible

 

To be eligible, customers must be the end user of the vehicle that requires installation of qualifying adaptive driving, assistance equipment or passenger aid equipment. The end user may also be defined as an organization, church, assisted living facility, nursing home, municipality, city, province, provincial government or federal government. Claims may also be made for adaptive equipment required by a family member of the owner/lessee of an eligible vehicle, providing the equipment is permanently fitted to the vehicle.

All new model Ford or Lincoln cars, vans, CUVs, SUVs, and trucks sold or leased during the program period are eligible for this program. Eligible vehicles must have installation of the qualifying adaptive equipment within six months of reported purchase/lease date to the ultimate consumer. New vehicles acquired from a Canada Ford Authorized Pool Converter are eligible for the program. Used units, including those previously in rental service, lease service, or repurchased vehicles by Ford Motor Company that are available for resale, are not eligible.
