Here is policy on RAV vehicle for warranty
A reacquired vehicle (RAV) is a vehicle repurchased by Ford from a retail owner as a result of a
Goodwill decision, BBB AUTOLINE decision, State Lemon Law decision, or legal settlement
requirement. A 12 months/12,000 miles (12 month/unlimited miles for vehicles resold in
California) RAV warranty is provided to the first retail customer after buyback.
The RAV Warranty coverage begins on the date and mileage at the time the vehicle is sold to
the first retail customer after buyback - NOT - when the bumper to bumper coverage expires.
Additionally, the RAV warranty coverage runs concurrently with other warranties still in effect
on the vehicle.
NOTE: Because of many state laws, Company policy requires that RAVs may not be
resold unless the vehicle is properly disclosed and registered for the RAV warranty
(Wholesaling of RAVs is not permitted.)
REACQUIRED VEHICLE (RAV) DISCLOSURE AND WARRANTY REGISTRATION
NOTE: This procedure applies to U.S. Dealers only.
Ford Motor Company requires disclosure of all Reacquired Vehicles (RAVs). Dealers are to
disclose the RAV to the first retail customer after reacquisition and resale by the Company. The
dealer is to sign the RAV Disclosure Agreement (Form FCS-8535) at auction. The dealer also
signs the Reacquired Vehicle Resale Disclosure and Warranty Notice (Form FCS-8520) at
auction. The dealer is to complete the #8520, disclose and review the contents of the #8520
with the customer and obtain the purchasing customer's signature on the #8520 and Warranty
Repair History at the time of sale. These documents, when received at RAV Headquarters, also
activate the RAV Warranty.
