Extended Ford warranty worth it

I haven't bought the extended warranty for my last 2 6.2s and I wouldn't pay $2800 for one. These 6.2s are dang near bullet proof. Unless you abuse or neglect them, I don't see any reason to buy extended coverage. Just my $0.02

You might want to shop around on-line. I bought a Ford Premium-Care, 6 year, 75K mile plan with a $200 deductible when my truck was brand new for ~$850 less.

I will probably never need it - but I've had post warranty issues with other family vehicles that put a few very deep dents in my finances. So after looking at the labor rates at my local Ford Service - I sleep better at night.

Your signature doesn't say what year but just to confirm you have a gas motor?

If so, $2,800 is way to high. I paid $2,200 for my 8yr/100k warranty on my diesel which has a $400 or so premium because of the diesel motor.

You can use my contact who I've sent upwards of 100 people to to buy them.. he sells them $100 over cost and you can do 24 month 0% financing on it.

Yes, gas. But also snow plow which is also a premium

I have a 2012 6.2L w/4.30 axle. I did not buy when new but recently bought a BaseCare ESP from the same dealer for $1800. Purchased right before I came off my 3yr 36000. I tow 5th wheel 10,000 and had thought about a powertrain esp but the basecare was only 100 dollars more. 84components. Hopefully will never need it. But if tranny problems etc come about I have some coverage. Came with $100 deductable. Good for 8yr 100,000 or 2020. It is a Ford esp warranty, so if problems I can go to any Ford dealership U.S.& Canada. Only thing is the warranty starts back when I bought it. So, if buying new might be something to consider. A friend has snow plow business and bought esp's for the fleet and also changes the trans oil very often. He told me watch that trans oil color. when it changes to brown get it changed. Good luck on your choice.
Side note; bought a esp with the 5th wheel rv and it is paying for itself with some appliance coverage.

they will deal on the price of the extended warranty when you're closing. Explain you'd like the warranty, just not at that price and see what happens. Great trucks, but every manufacturing line of anything made has the last one off the line at the end of a work shift that's not given the same attention to detail and things go wrong.

You can find the ESP cheaper. If you do not use Blwnsmoke's contact you can PM me and I will tell you where I bought mine for last 2 trucks.
You can also google Ford ESP Warranty and compare prices by putting in your information. I paid 1/2 that when my 2012 diesel was new for 7 years / 60,000 miles and $100 deductable for Premium Care

I paid under $2,200 for the Premium Care 8yr/100k with Enhanced 1st day rental and $50 deductible. This is on a diesel as well, not the 6.2 which I believe is a $400+ upcharge. There are many online dealers selling wholesale. The $2,200 I paid is dealer cost.
