Warranty?? Anyone have experience with them?

We are looking at a 2003 F250 6.0 with 125,000 miles on it. Does anyone have experience with buying any extended warranties? Figured it would be a good thing to get if we get the vehicle. If you have one do you know what company it is and the price? Also does it cover those common things like the EGR, ICP, etc?
Thanks
Dan

Might be hard to find one that will warranty it with that many miles on it. Hard a Warranty Gold on my Pontiac, they went belly up, luckily nothing major happened to that car. For my F250, I've got the Ford extended warranty, but your truck is too old for that.
If you have the money for an extended warranty, you may want to put it in a seperate bank account for any repair work.

I did think of the bank account thing. I think I will have about $2500 come back to me from the dealer after my trade. Thought about putting that in an account and not into the loan. Figured with all of the stories of things going wrong with the 6.0 that I may spend well over $2500 for fixes which is why I am wondering about warranties.
Thanks

Put the money towards head studs, a full EGR delete, and a coolant filter. The studs and EGR delete will get rid of the two biggest problems on the 6.0, and the coolant filter will help reduce the chance of oil cooler failure since most of the failures are caused by debris clogging the oil cooler.

If you do those 3 things, assuming the truck was not abused by it previous owners, you should have a reliable rig.

The aftermarket warranty companies are pretty much a ripoff in my opinion.

I don't think you can get the Ford extended warranty because I'm sure you need to purchase it before you hit 100K miles and if your still within the bumper to bumper warranty you can get the ultiment warranty plan. As for aftermarket warranty's there junk IMO. I got burned on one when my tranny broke. When I bought it I ask for a plan that would cover transmission. They gave me coverage on everything but tranny. If your looking at trucks without a warranty I would think really again about getting a 6.0 since headstuds and EGR delete were already mentioned in this thread within 4 post. 6.0's are known for headgasket and EGR failures and look at all the signatures on here with people that have studs and EGR delete on there 6.0's but if money isn't an issue then get a 6.0 and have fun.
