Looking at these. What to stay away from, who has what and what did it cost?
 
Buckle up... this is a thread that you will see both positive and negative comments. We received delivery of our Tremor on 10/29. Our truck was purchased for strictly a tow vehicle for our 35’ Winnebago. (By the way I LOVE this beast) We purchased the extended warranty from Ford which covered 125,000 miles and eight years. I did not shop around much - I trust the Ford brand - the price was $4570.00. Everyone’s financial / life situation is different. In our situation we are close to finishing our second career and plan on spending a couple of years exploring the hidden beauties around the United States while pulling our camper. I have never bought an extended warranty before - but we plan on keeping this truck for 10+ years. If you can afford it - sometimes the piece of mind value is worth it. Good luck and Merry Christmas! ????
 
Warranty comes down to what you want .... Me I work on my vehicles so once my truck out of warranty I am not worried ... I will fix it my self ... I am also used to having older vehicles anyways ... But ford's have always been go for me ... 280k on a 2002 ford explorer sport trac with the 4.0 v6 ... My f150 has 150k miles 2012 ... I have had a few other ford's but alot lower mileage but I haven't had problems and it's american made the parts are cheaper then a bmw... So it comes down to what you want ... Or what you are willing to do ... Or are you going to sell or trade the truck in before it expires

Go get yourself a quote at floodfordesp.com
125k/8year goes for 2400$ with 250$ deductible
Sorry @CountryTremor but the price you paid was way over into the dealers pockets. Flood Ford, Zeigler et cetera charges Fords price. Now, I am of the belief that no matter how wealthy one is, we shouldn’t waste money. I recommend you cancel your current policy (yes you can do that and the dealer has to roll it back) and then just purchase a new one from Flood Ford or Zeigler for the appropriate price. I just saved you 2000$.

He's right. It can be done and they sell for $100 over their cost. It's legit.
 
I used Flood Ford ESP for my GT500. 7 years 70K miles and it was worth it. This last year it broke a valve spring and it paid for itself. Initially they thought it was broken rod and would need a new engine, engine is $28k to replace. So, without it, I potentially would have had a paperweight as this car is the engine.

So, my life experience is they work for us. I just put in yesterday to this one FD Warranty for a quote, from another thread here by @Deus where they beat Flood on his. We shall see. GL

During the 70's and early 80's I grew up working in our neighbors Car Dealerships. I started out in my early teens washing the cars on the lot, to writing service. Dodge-Chrysler-Plymouth, Jeep, Toyota, Mazda, and every GM except GMC Trucks and Pontiac. So many early lessons learned about honesty, and the general public. I hate to say it, but when it comes to money, people lie. They'll lie to your face, because they want something for nothing. I strongly suggest to anyone who talking about Extended Warranties, or Service Contracts to only purchase the Contract backed by the Manufacture. Toyota/Toyota, GM/GM etc .. 3rd party warranty companies are profitable to the seller. They do not have you in their best interest. They will fight you the whole way .. Much like a few people I remember. They don't know how, or why things are broken. They'll swear they didn't break it, hit, or run over anything ..

Purchasing through Flood Ford is the Ford Premium care warranty. They just simply sell them for less. I just bought the 8-year 125k. I don't believe it's called premium care anymore though. It's whatever Ford's name is for it now. $100 deductible.

I see they have 4 levels, in quickly looking emissions and audio are the addons that premium care provides.

This is what I'm looking at.
The PremiumCare (it’s still called premiumcare) also includes several interior aspects of the vehicle. Either way, I never really looked at any of the other levels since the price difference was too small and I just wanted all-around calmness for my nerves. That’s really all these ESPs are for. Keeping your nerves steady.
 
It’s nice seeing these options and will be handy knowing the costs when I go to pick up my truck and they try to add all this stuff on.

I was straight up with my dealer and said before him even offering: “Here’s the good for you: I’ll buy an ESP from you. Here’s the bad for you: I will only buy the Ford backed one at the price that Flood Ford online advertised”.
He immediately said “Ok. We will match the price.”

Makes sense to me

Yes, if they do not match Flood’s price, just politely decline. There is no difference between what you can buy from Flood vs what your dealer can sell you.
 
i declined fords offer and he came back with the hey ok 8yr 80k warranty (since i rarely put miles on a tow vehicle i have a 07 f150 with 88k miles) on it and maintenance for life for $1900 so i went with that. but paid it cash so i wouldnt pay interest on it.

funny my 07 F150 has 93K miles. How much did you get on trade in, if you don't mind sharing?
 
My 15 I traded had 30,000 miles on it, 8 year warranty sounds awesome to me!

i actually didnt trade it in my son can drive in 5 years so i said ill just keep it for him since its never had any issues so stored it away lol
 
What is the point of getting an ESP for a new vehicle at purchase?
1. Does the ESP price go up if you wait until your 3 year bumper-to-bumper is almost up?
2. On the list of covered items in FloodFord's Premium package I don't see any mention of the DEF system.
3. The standard Ford warranty covers the Powerstroke for 5 yrs/100K so it seems like getting a 125K/8 yr doesn't make sense.
Besides, if they weren't making money on them they wouldn't be selling them, at least for the prices they are.
