Rear-Wheel Drive

With any Lincoln ESP plan, you'll get the same coverage for the Rear-Wheel Drive Axle assembly. However, for 4x4 and all-wheel-drive vehicles, the front-drive axle is also covered.

Front-Wheel Drive

Each Lincoln ESP plan offers identical coverage for the Front-Wheel-Drive Axle assembly, protecting all internal parts as well as the half shafts. Additionally, on 4x4 and AWD vehicles, this coverage extends to the rear-drive axle.


Starting with BaseCARE, Lincoln ESP plans cover most steering components, like the power steering pump, steering gear, and steering linkages. PremiumCARE expands coverage to include items like the steering column and advanced steering components.


Starting with BaseCARE, Lincoln ESP plans cover basic brake system parts (except for friction components). ExtraCARE and PremiumCARE cover more advanced brake elements, like the anti-lock brake module and sensors.
