First Automotive Extended Warranty..ok or not?

I purchased a 4 year/48,000 mile warranty on my F350 Harley. Bought it with 56,000 miles last year. Will I need it? or just get my refund? Please let me know guys.

Are you the second owner? I believe some warranties may carry over to the second owner. Regardless. Most aftermarket warranties will become void with putting on the "normal" upgrades you'd want to do to make the 6.0 bulletproof. Personally I'd say you're better off returning the warranty and putting those funds towards a stud, head gasket, erg and oil cooler bullet proofing setup. Or. On the flip side. Keep the warranty and drive the wheels off it should the head gaskets blow you typically can provide the studs and whatnot to them basically saving yourself all the labor costs. Could go one way or the other. If you decide to keep the warranty make sure it's in writing that your FICM, HPOP, EGR, oil cooler and head gaskets are all covered by the warranty.

Refund, most of the times these aftermarket warranties are a joke. They may also say in the contract that they will supply the parts, not you. So you may end up with something worse than what you have.

Unless it's a Ford ESP warranty I'd get a refund. Those aftermarket ones are usually scams.

My aftermarket warranty paid for itself. Headgaskets went out due to the turbo overboosting. I had a $200 deductible, but I ended up paying a little more than that because I had them replace/upgrade some things since the cab was off and engine was torn down.

Thanks Guys!

I am going to read the fine print on the contract but the brochure say all components in engine, turbo, axles, seals, electricals, brakes, ac, fuel system, diesel injectors.... I'm going my local ford mechanic to see all previous work done. The ford mechanic is pretty helpful. My Ford warranty just expired because it been more than 5 years(5/100000) but the extended just kicked in. I paid 2800...I will get 70% back. I will be at the ford dealer Tuesday. Thanks for you support and advice guys.

Another thing to point out on this...Most aftermarket warranties DO NOT cover worn parts. They cover parts that break, not parts that fail after their supposed lifespan. Not sure what the specific definition/timeline that covers, but Ford's ESP is the only one to cover parts that grow old or wear down then break.

Almost every aftermarket warranty I have dealt with has not covered oil cooler or EGR cooler replacement. Just had one that had blown head gaskets and it had an aftermarket air filter and they denied the claim and canceled the policy. Needless to say the customer was not happy. It said nowhere in the fine print that the warranty did not cover oil cooler or EGR cooler.
