My opinion... wait. First a question, they let you get a 30k warranty on a '08 with 120k miles?? I say push for the repairs and see how it does monitor it like hell. get ford to find anything that needs fixing so the other dealer/warranty can pay, they'll love that. I have a friend that loves getting "complete coverage" on cars a few years old and driving them straight to the dealer and getting the "list" of what needs fixing for the warranty company to pay.
Really though, I dont think there anre many perfect used vehicles out there for sale. They are for sale for a reason. I made my decision on low previous ownership and the dealer service history. I say find your out real quick... I equate 1 owner to more possiblity of maintenance, in my case with the ford service history it proved it. That being said, I'm a bit of a worry bug so the first thing I did was bpd oil cooler, hpop fitting, bpd egr cooler, ficm, trans flush, water pump, belt, coolant thermostat,7.3 upgrade/downgrade, did my coolant pressure test (passed)... because on the internet all i read was the 6.0 is the worst engine on the planet.... I'm only 16k miles on her since I updated, but haven't had an issue. But I'm also now 12k deep into an '05 crew 6.0 with now 142-ishk mile truck that I only drive in Fridays. And drives to california on weekends. But the one thing I do religiously is maintenance on filters , fluids and start my torque app before I even think about turning the key to start it.
Basically, it's a crap shoot.
