What is a Diagnostic fee?

A dealership is entitled to ask for payment of a diagnostic fee which covers the labour cost to determine the cause of a vehicle's concern. Upon diagnosis, if the repair is covered under an applicable warranty, extended service plan, recall, or customer satisfaction program, it is customary for the diagnostic fee to be waived.

If a repair is not covered under an applicable program, the diagnostic becomes part of the repair cost which is paid for by the customer. These charges are not determined by Ford Motor Company and must be agreed between the dealer and customer. uses cookies and similar technologies on this website to improve your online experience and to show tailored advertising to you.
