Who Has Used An Extended Warranty & What Did You Think of It?

Will be taking delivery of a 2013 F350 XLT 4x4 CC LB 6.7L diesel soon. I consider myself a fairly savvy shopper and have never bought an extended service warranty, as most aren't worth the paper they're written on. However, have never had a diesel before, a much more pricey investment. Dealer finance guy quoted me a $3995 warranty from First Extended and I politely told him no thanks. Stupid I'm not. I could get the same thing from Ford for about $3000 (Premium Care) or through USAA (I'm retired military) for about $2100. USAA just can be beat for customer service, but that's another issue. If I got an extended warranty it wouldn't be until the 36mo/36K bumper-to-bumper was about to expire. Why pay for dual coverage by purchasing such a warranty with a new vehicle?

Anyway, anybody have lessons learned here before I pick up my new truck? In the absence of diesel experience I'd appreciate it.

all the expensive stuff is covered for 100k or 5 years, I have debated this issue as well. but you do have just up until your warranty is up to decide. that's what i'm doing. I had it on a ram a while back but it never paid for itself. my problem is I flip trucks every couple of years even though I never plan on it. just me though but if I do keep the truck for three years and still love it I will buy it!

i too am in your boat. Curious to see what people say. I think you will always get the "well if your a good mechanic you dont need the ext warranty, etc., etc." With these things as complicated as they are, I too am waiting until my B2B is about up then I will make my decision. I've seen these turbos go out on the problems forums like crazy for the 11's and 12's. Yes the forums are for people of have issues with their truck and people who have no issues with their turbos wont post that most of the time. Anyway, 1 or 2 turbos is anywhere from 2K to 3K+ each time and after one time, the ext warranty would break even, give or take.

I have had them on most vehicles i have owned. on my last truck it was worth the piece of mine only, never had to use it. on a previous vehicle long ago, i used it so many times that it paid for itself at least four fold. Had a lemon.

After reading this, I dont see the need for it...
2013 Ford Super Duty | View Full Ford Super Duty Warranty Information | Ford.com

On the 6.7, 5 years or 100K but...
5 years 60K on the tranny. Kinda sucks.

This is what I dont get tho...

Extended warranty coverage periods are available for certain
vehicle parts and conditions. Specifically,
......does this mean you have to get the extended warranty coverage? Sounds like it. I just want to make sure.

first. The following parts are covered during this extended coverage

gaskets and seals, glow plugs, turbocharger, two-stage turbocharger
assembly, turbocharger actuator, powertrain control module, engine
control module, high pressure fuel injection pump assembly, electronic
driver unit, injectors, injection pressure sensor, fuel rail pressure sensor,

The radiator and all of the computerized junk on these trucks is not covered in the 5 yr 100k, trust me... The radiator that was replaced under the premium esp plan has paid for the actual cost of the plan not to mention the EGR which also would not have been covered... The radiator would cost $1700 to replace plus the rental car which would have been several hundred because the diesel mechanic didn't actually work on it for a week. So my vote is to have the piece of mind... its a small drop in the bucket for a 60K+ truck to know that you are covered including rental and towing.... Just my .02

I purchased the 6 yr 200,000 km full coverage. After my 6.4 with all warranty visits always cost me money somehow. Electronics always seemed to be the loop hole. even though I could not get 4X4 it was the control module, so electronics was not covered $ 1000. Peace of mind no questions asked now as far as I am concerned
