Thanks for your input.It is the best plan if you are doing a lot of traveling and needed to use the Extended Warranty at ANY Ford dealership. Too many problems with the private warranty companies and a lot of them are scams that stay open for a while, then declare bankruptcy and start another similar company with a new name and location.
Does it make a difference when the Ford Extended Warranty is purchased? Does it cost more if it's purchased when the original warranty is about to end? Or, is it better to buy it when picking up the new Transit?
Glad to hear this. Matt Ford pushed the private warranty on me and I took it not thinking much about it. However, I read up on the company and quickly received a full refund. I don't think the finance guy was very happy to have to issue the refund, but he also made some claims about the service I never could prove.One of the reasons I made the move to Gary Crossley Ford was to be able to give the Transit customer the availability to get the Ford Extended Warranty that they were offering.
No. unless there is a cross the board rate increase. So it won't be cheaper but it could go up.Will it cost more if it's purchased when the original warranty is about to end?
If you are buying from a local dealer where you will be having the use of that dealer for future warranty service, it may be fine. The Ford factory warranty is better if you know you may be relocating to another part of the country or know you will be doing a lot of traveling during your ownership where having the Ford warranty would better suit your needs.When a Ford dealer isn't pushing the Ford extended warranty, but a private warranty, that is a red flag for sure.
Considering a possible price increase, it may make sense to buy it sooner rather than later.No. unless there is a cross the board rate increase. So it won't be cheaper but it could go up.
No matter what the dealer charges, they aren't losing money it's pure profit.
Some of the members have had dealers give them the coverage for free due to screwups.
But like I mentioned the extended warranty doesn't start when you purchase it, the start date is the date and milage when you purchased your vehicle new.
