DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford Motor Credit Company is offering a disaster-relief program to Texas customers affected by the recent floods in Houston and the eastern part of the state.
The program allows qualified customers to delay one or two monthly payments, resuming their regular payment schedules when their situations improve.
"Especially at times like this, we want customers to know we care about them," Ford's financial arm said in a statement on Friday.
The program also applies to eligible Lincoln Automotive Financial Services customers.
Customers who are eligible for the program are being sent postcards, along with e-mailed notifications with contact instructions.
The offer is available to customers who are leasing or have purchased vehicles with financing from Ford Credit or Lincoln Automotive Financial Services.
Edmunds says: Customers who do not want to wait to be contacted should call 1-800-723-4016 for more information.
