I appreciate all the input, I really do!
My issues are mainly these:
When I take a vehicle in for a simple oil change etc, they always find something else major wrong, or when I leave I realize something else is wrong. If it's not under regular warranty, I'm stuck.
If I wait to purchase the ext warranty it is retro to the first day I obtained the vehicle anyway, and I may have needed the extra in the meantime?
If something goes wrong without the extended warranty, can I still buy it later or does that negate the offer? (Have to ask them this!)
As for the maintenance plan, I really like having "everything covered" because if something else is really wrong, they fix it...and if it really isn't wrong they still "fix" it ...
Two different plans though: warranty, maintenance.
If it's a lemon, they have to fix it anyway...but in the meantime I have to pay for it, with a deductible,,, the extended has no deductible.,
I love the idea of the Ford Tough! And I have good history with overall vehicles that don't give me trouble if I stay away from the mechanics hahahaha or stay on top of them....
Ok,. I think I'll wait on the extended warranty. Go with the premium maintenance package (even though the first 3 years I'll be in the hole with it, the last 4 might make it worth it.
