I can give you several options. They sound sincere. [emoticon]


One such plan advertises on TV as much as those hawking Medicare Advantage plans. Has to be really good coverage if they can afford that much for TV adds, not!

Technically they are extended service plans, not extended warranties.

I have had Ford ESP on several vehicles and happy with it. Have also had EasyCare on Ford vehicles and it was very good also. Never any problems on a covered repair. Only real difference the service advisor said is that they don't have to wait for approval for repairs with the Ford plan.

But in reality, have had very few repairs needing to be done while still under coverage. And only a couple have paid back enough to cover the initial costs of the ESP.


No, some of them ARE actual extended warranties (Volvo's for example). That part is worth looking into, on a manufacturer-to-manufacturer basis. A true warranty trumps a service plan, as has been discussed here already.

And be sure if a dealer is selling it that it is the manufacturers plan as many sell both and push the 3rd party plan as it can make them more $$$.

The vehicles manufacture! Search for the best price before laying down your money. In 2015 we bought a RAM Max Care Warranty of 120K and 8 years, with $100 deductible on our RAM Diesel for 24xx dollars.


Have you had to use your warranty, I just got a quote of $2900 for 8/100, and seems high since the power train is already 5/100 warranty.
My 3/36 is fixing to expire, and trying to decide to get it or not. 35,550 miles on truck now. Thanks

In 2008, we bought a new Dodge Caravan, and I bought a 3rd party extended warranty from the dealer for 5 years/ 60,000 miles from a company I never heard of. Sometime later I was kinda regretting it, worrying that the company might go under. This was a Purchase Price Refund warranty, meaning that if I didn't use the warranty, I would get my money back.
Well, I never had to use that warranty on that van, and after the 5 years I got all my money back (nearly $2k), except for a $50 service fee.
Two years later I put that $2k towards a 2015 Town & Country with the Chrysler warranty.
They don't offer the Purchase Price Refund warranty anymore.

i would only buy the vehicla's manufacturer extended warranty. i bought the Ford one on my used 2014 F150.
wouldn't even touch a 3rd party extended vehicle warranty.


X2 and keep in mind you can buy online from out of state dealers that heavily discount these high markup warranties.
