Default Is the Ford extended service plan worth it?

I bought a 2013 f150 used from a local Audi dealer that was just too good to pass up. In the rush and exitement of getting a new truck I accepted the extended service plan through them. $2030 for 60/75000 with $100 deductible. It's been about 5 months now and I'm thinking about cancelling it and getting the Ford ESP "Premium Care" package. I haven't called my local dealer for a quote yet, but after reading on here I'm not sure i want to because they just try to rip you off. I also read on here about Flood Ford and Zeigler Ford and did a quick online quote, but it seems too good to be true. Anyone have experience with either of those dealers buying extended service plans? Also should I wait till my factory warranty is up to buy the extended one or does it not matter? Thanks in advance.

I bought the Ford ESP from Floodford for my truck and my wifes 14 Escape, they are legit.

Don't wait till the factory warranty is up because the price will go way up.

I'm just trying to gauge out how much I'm going to pay. I'll be getting about $1900 after I cancel my current extended warranty. Hoping that should be enough to get a new one.

Online FORD ESP's are greatly discounted! You could save big time!


Check out the online dealers. They sell the Genuine FORD ESP.


http://www.zeiglerfordesp.com/


https://www.floodfordesp.com/


http://andersonandkoch-ford-warranty.com/




Zeigler Ford is still running a discount with PROMO CODE "GREGH",
and perhaps a bigger discount if you call them.


Flood Ford was pretty much neck and neck on price.


I wouldn't have even considered an ECOBOOST without a FORD ESP.

I would have went with less mileage like you did except when I purchased it I didn't know my job would keep me less than 2 miles from home.

Its 15 mile round trip to work.


when I took my ford car lease back, the car only had 14,357 miles on it after 3 years.


So, YEARS made more since to me on the ESP (and it was cheaper).
and there wasn't a big difference on that plan between the 0-100 deductible, so I chose the Zero.


Good move buying this ESP on the ECOBOOST. I am sure it will come in handy at some point!!

I'll definitely be checking it out online when I cancel my current one. What mileage/months would you guys recommend for me? I drive about 15k a year.
