Aftermarket extended warrenties

I put 60,000 + miles a year on, so does anyone know of a good company for me to try. Planning on putting about 200,000 miles before I get another van Ford Protection is a joke, they quoted me $2,400.00 for a extra 65,000 miles, no thanks

That is a very good indication of Fords confidence in the Quality of the vehicles that they build.

It's a better indication of just how much profit is in an extended warranty and for that reason, how negotiable the price is.

I think it's almost always a better idea to buy the extended warranty on the aftermarket. But with that said. With the miles you are racking up you'll be out of that warranty in no time. I wonder if it's a better idea to put that money aside and use it towards maintenance and repairs
