Warranty Help

Just purchased a 2012 F-250 CCSB 6.7. I had not figured it in to price as the extended warranty was a waste on my last F-250. Everytime I took it in I was charged diagnostic fees and nothing was found. One trip to the dealer this past summer was $250 with nothing found. I really feel like I pissed away money the only ting worth it was the free rental car each time it was in the should until 36000miles. Should I get an extended warranty or just keep with the normal warranty? Opinions and help appreciated.

I'd wait to purchase it when your new vehicle warranty is just about up.

I have started buying extended warranties with all my vehicles since my wife's car need the a/c system replaced. The warranty paid for its self right then. I tried to add it to my Duramax after the fact it it was crazy expensive because it was a diesel. If you are even slightly considering it I would get it when you buy the truck.

I was able to get it just the other day when I bought my truck for $1,450 and it covers bumper to bumper for 6 years or 100,000 miles. I also have a lifetime powertrain that the dealer added to the truck.

Personally, I do not purchase extended warranties on anything. I rely on the manufacturers warranty only, and put the cost of the warranty into my savings account should anything happen.

With the cost of components on these diesels, one trip to the shop can easily cost you the price of the warranty. I will buy the warranty and leave my savings alone.

True... Im watching from the cheap seats though... My F550 is company owned, so I do not have the rediculous high repair/maintenence costs associated with ownership....
If the need arises, Cummins parts are much less expensive than FoMoCo

I agree 100% If you plan on keeping it past the normal warranty you are crazy not to everything is to expensive (labor, parts). The days of a backyard mechanic that can fix it cheap are over.
