Warranty ? Come on Ford

Why is it I can buy a US Focus or Canada Focus and get the warranty in either country US or Canada

If I buy a Mexico Focus as long as the Focus is also sold in the US I can get a warranty on my Mexico bought Focus in the US but if I buy a US Focus I cannot get any warranty covered in Mexico

I would like to know why this is , warranty labor is 1/5 the cost of US warranty , I have found about as many knowledgable Tech guys in the Mexico dealerships , parts are the same , why wouldnt Ford want to have the warranty done in Mexico where it would cost less to cover a warranty ?

It very obvious US and Mexico work together or the US wouldnt cover a Mexico Warranty in the US why doesnt it work both way

Is it the original warranty or an extended warranty? The Ford extended warranty is run by an affiliate, Ford Motor Service Company, that has agreements with the US and Canadian Ford dealerships.

I don't know of any other manufacturers (Honda, Toyota, GM, etc) that honor US warranties in Mexico.
