Extended Warranty or not?

When I bought my truck I thought I was getting a Ford motor company extended warranty, I guess I didnt ask the right questions. What I ended up with was a warranty from Jim & Morann. Backed by Fidelity. I can however get rid of that warranty, and have the money put towards a ford motor warranty, 6 yr 120k bumper to bumper. OR I could have the money thrown towards the back of my loan.

Should I

A. get rid of the Jim & Morran warranty 100k B to B with 4 free oil changes before 36k, and get it replaced buy the Ford 6 yr 120 B to B warranty?

Or

B. Get rid of the Warranty all together and have the money applied towards the principle of my loan.


Let me know your views on Ford motor company warranties as well as your views on FP Morran, and your views on Warranties all together. I will be making the call Monday after noon with my decision, and will be basing a lot of what I do on what you guys have to say.

I had an aftermarket warranty on another vehicle I owned and it was sold by the dealership to me. To my amazement, this aftermarket warranty did not have to replace any of the parts replaced under a warranty claim with OEM parts. If there was a cheaper part available in the aftermarket, the warranty company could use that instead of an OEM part. I did however, have the option to pay the difference between the aftermarket part and the OEM part and get a genuine OEM part installed. I'd just read the small print and see what's covered. I bought the "best" warranty coverage this third party warranty covered and it was a bumper to bumper warranty.

I have sixty days before until I can get a total refund. That leaves me about three weeks left. A friend of mines kid used to sell cars. He is a natural salesman. Great kid too. I told me to never buy an extended warranty of any kind. The only thing that scares me is that I had a lot of major problems with my last truck starting at around 80 k. And even more problems after 110 K. But that was a 6.0 So far these trucks seem good to go. I'm not sure. I may scrap the warranty and just put the money straight towards my Loan.

The ford 6 year 120 k mile warranty is 2850. decisions, decisions.

I had a Ford ESP on my 6.4 and will never do that again. It was worth little IMO and more like a glorified service plan except that it wouldn't replace the fuel filters on schedule or use synthetic oil for O&F changes. The result was that I had to pay more for what needed to be done at recommneded service intervals. I prefer to have a proper extended warranty from a company like Guardian and to pay for the correct service as I own the vehicle.

Take the refund and bank the money instead of applying it towards the loan. If you have a issue go to the fund.

What is this 6 yr / 120K miles warranty? I just bought my 2012 last month and got the maximum Ford Motor Company warranty which was 7yr / 100 K miles. It maybe a purchasers location issue regarding the term.
Considering that the 6.7 is only in it's second year, I wouldn't have bought my 2012 SD without at least a 100 K mile warranty. This engine hasn't been proven yet, even though I hope its a gem.
Warranty is insurance. Keep it. If you decide to get rid of it every extended warranty I have seen are refundable under a prorating system. Besides, putting your warranty return of $3,000 into paying down the cost of a truck that's 60 grand, is truthfully not much of a reduction. And the basic 36,000 warranty for a diesel engine is ridiculously low IMO. Diesels should run for 200,000 miles without a problem.
On a side note; Have you looked under the hood of the new 6.7? This giant engine is tucked in tight and a least half of it is tucked under the cab. Not too friendly for the home mechanic. I can imagine just an hours labor removing parts just to get to the meat and potatoes of this engine. I'm just sayin.

Am I missing something here? I thought I read the 6.7 has a 6 yr 100k powertrain warranty from the factory..I'm not really worried about anything else.
