New F250 Owner Needs Advice

Need advice, just purchased a new 2012 Ford 2012 F250. I was offered a extended warranty for a extra 100,000 miles for extra 24 months. Told I had a limited time to do this and the cost was about $2800. So is this a good deal to buy? Any other things I should consider or check out on this new truck right away.

BIG Waste of money for the extended warrantee , just make sure it has all the recent flashes - tranny and engine. Other than that you should be good.

Difference in opinions I guess.

I plan on buying the extended warranty for mine. Cost was 2970 for 7 year 75K with the plow package.

I was told I could add the extended warranty at any time prior to the original bumper to bumper expiring. It may not help you decide personally if it is worth it to you, but give you the time to think about it without feeling any pressure about it. I'd check with your dealer about what "a limited time" is.

I bought my 2012 F-250 Lariat CC 6.7 three weeks ago. Finance mgrs first offer was about $3K for 100K mile ext warranty. Last offer was about $2500. I pretty much don't buy EWs. Not warrant anyway. It's a type of insurance. If the peace of mind is worth it to you buy it and don't let anyone's opinion talk you out of it.

So if you buy this your truck would be covered for 200,000 miles or 7 years, correct? I guess it depends on what the extended portion covers and how much you drive your truck.
