Ford ESP worth it?

I just bought a new 2012 CCSB Lariat 6.7 diesel. I am totally against all extended warranties in principal and philosophy. However, with the price of any repairs these days, I am wondering if the ESP of around $3000 to 100,000 miles would be worth it. Any opinions?

Does that cover the entire truck? Engine and Turbo are already covered to 100K...

That does not work when our turbo is almost 3000 all by itself or when your towing heavy at 100,000 and bend a rod

Yes, if you get the premium it is bumper to bumper. I was just looking at all the really neat gadgets in the truck, heated seats, cooled seats, power fold / extend mirrors, etc. I am not too worried about engine failures as those are covered to 100,000 already. I was thinking about it for the little things that could be expensive.

Ford ESP worth it?

I bought a 100k mile esp on my 2013 for $1500, but I made the finance manager put in writing that any aftermarket components I installed did not void my warranty. I figure the warranty company might not care about his notes, but worst case, I will have some leverage on the dealer. Piece of mind for me to have a 100k mile warranty.

Ford ESP worth it?

The power train has a 100k warranty. The rest is a 3 year 36k warranty. The ESP premium care will cover almost everything but it IS NOT a true 100k bumper to bumper. Pretty close, but not. I used to be a service advisor for ford and we hated the salesman who would sell these warranties and not explain them fully. IMO, though, I say it is a good investment.

Check your state's laws as well. In CA, you can purchase an extended warranty for the same price up until the last day your vehicle is under the 3 year / 36K factory warranty. The dealers hate telling you that.
