State Auto Club Membership with Roadside Assistance (Retail and Blue Fleet customers other than new/demonstrator Transit and Transit Custom sold from 1 November 2018 which receive Standard Roadside Assistance (Van Care). See below for further information.)1

Whether you’re ten minutes from home or hours away, you only need to experience a flat tyre or flat battery to know the value of roadside assistance. Until your vehicle reaches 7 years of age, each time a standard service is completed by a participating Ford Dealer, you’ll receive State Auto Club Roadside Assistance and Membership1 for up to 12 months from the date of the service.

Now, that’s what service should be.

24 hours, 365 days per year

Should you require assistance following a breakdown, your local Auto Club will come to you at the roadside 24 hours a day, 365 days per year - anywhere in Australia.

Flat battery

The Auto Club will jump-start a flat battery or arrange a battery replacement. For 12 months from the first date of vehicle registration, if your battery fails, the Auto Club will replace it at no cost to you.

Out of fuel

The Auto Club will assist you with the provision of petrol or diesel, where available, to enable you to travel to the nearest re-fuelling facility or, alternatively, arrange a tow. Fuel cost may be at the owner’s expense. Dedicated LPG vehicles will require towing to your nearest licensed LPG re-fuelling facility (within towing limits).

Flat tyre

The Auto Club will change a flat tyre (where vehicle has a serviceable spare) or, if necessary, a tow will be arranged.


The Auto Club will assist where possible in opening your vehicle, locating and delivering your spare keys (where applicable), or arranging a tow, provided adequate proof of ownership can be shown.

Mechanical breakdown

Where applicable, a Service Patrol Vehicle will be dispatched to assist the mobilisation of your vehicle at the roadside.


In the event that a vehicle cannot be mobilised at the roadside, that vehicle will be towed to the nearest Ford Dealer or authorised Ford Service outlet.
