Extended Warranty?

Is the extended warranty, that is available through Ford, worth the extra $2200? I have 99k mi on my truck and am contemplating purchasing it. I will be covered up to 200k with no deductible. What do you guys think. I need to make a decision in the next few days or it will be too late!!! Keep in mind it is only a motor warranty that will cover injectors, turbo, oil pump, headgaskets, etc. It sound like a good deal to me. Plus if I get rid of the truck it is transferable or I can get a pro-rated refund of the unused portion.

Would the warranty be in force even with your performance mods?

All I really have is the cat/dpf delete and I've had it in there before without any problems. But that doesn't mean they wouldn't void it down the road for something else. Also the SCT if they havea problem with that. I always return to stock but .

I like the peace of mind of a good warranty. Engine repairs (any repairs) can be really expensive in the shop! I have usually gotten my money's worth out of my warranties.

But, I'm not offering advice!

Dont mess with any aftermarket warranty, you will get screwed every time in the end. If you have to go with Ford, its the better choice.

I also like the peace of mind of a warranty (especially when there is no deductible). But I am also limited on mods I can make. Bad turbo or injectors would sure be a good excuse to the wife to make upgrades. But also pricey if I am not financially able when it happens. Plus it would be nice to get headstuds installed under warranty.

I see what you are saying, but putting $2k into savings is not going to cover lifted heads, bad injectors, and/or trashed turbo. With this warranty I could have any or all of the above and drop it off to get fixed with no additional money out of my pocket.

Is homeowners insurance 'crap'? Is life insurance 'crap'? How about automobile insurance?

In some cases, under certain circumstances, for certain people, perhaps any or all of these types of protection are unnecessary or not cost-effective. It all depends on the individual and his circumstances. Not many of us can afford to put the cost of a spare engine in an escrow account in case of catastrophic engine failure. You pay a lessor amount for coverage, and hope you don't need it. You're playing the odds, and insuring against the likelihood of your number coming up.
