Just for the sake of balance....
I bought my early build 03 in 2005 with 40K on the ticker. My warrunty claims were for a cracked Y pipe and the recall/reflash of the PCM.
In 07, my warranty ran out. I purchased the Ford ESP.
Never used it. And to this day (the ESP has long since expired) I am still on all of the original engine and transmission parts with 153K mi. I take that back! I installed a new EGR valve at 120K just for grins.
Do I regret buying the ESP? Not at all. My rationale was that the $1,500 purchace price of the ESP would take care of just one mechanical problem that I could face.
