It is not a Ford ESP because he is outside the 3 yr./36000 enrollment period. The third party warranty offered is extremely expensive and I highly doubt it goes to 141000 miles. Most likely it extends the warranty coverage for an additional 59,000 miles to 100K. If in fact it is a certified vehicle, it should come with an extended warranty for free (really just a higher purchase price).

Welcome to the forum.

What kind of warranty this is? Ford or a third party? What kind of engine is in your truck? Any reparations done so far? Warranty claims? Do you have the maintenance record?

Most of the extended warranties are WAY overpriced - you can cut the price a lot. For instance, I extended my basic 3y/60k to 5Y/100k (kilometers) and Ford was asking 2600$ for it. I ended up getting it for somewhere around 1000$.

$240? Hard to believe. You did not specify the length of the loan.. Other user is correct, the math doesn't add up!

which appears to be 60 months.

Trust me when I say this, Ford ESP's are the BEST for your Ford product. Your truck will receive Ford parts, not aftermarket. We are the 5th largest dealer in the nation and sell Ford ESP's exclusively, even though the profit margin is higher on 3rd party warranties.

I have bought 2 warranties on Ford vehicles after 36k miles. The only thing different is a slightly higher price. Same warranty. I have one on a 2012 Fusion that I bought with 65k miles on it.

I would recommend spending the money on it. I can't wait to see how fast these trucks start to fall apart around that 5 year window. The car companies don't design vehicles to last any more.

You bought a "Ford ESP" after 36,000 miles? The Flood Ford calculator will not allow you to pick a new ESP outside the factory warranty. I just checked. Additionally, it does not offer an option to go to 140,000 miles or add 100K to the existing OP's mileage on truck. It does have an option for 150,000 but from the original in service mileage when new. In any case, the 2013 year model is excluded due to age.

Mine is a non-Ford extended warranty for my F150. Yes, its was $4 more a month for 60 months after we negotiated a little. I have used this dealer before and my brother buys a new vehicle from the same dealer every 4-5 years and gets the same warranty. He has used it a couple times and urged me to get it because it has really paid off for him. The finance guy who I negotiated with, told me its a much more comprehensive warranty than anything Ford offers. My 2016 Explorer came with a CPO warranty included in the cost.

Sorry, thats just a dumb statement......My 2007 lasted 10 years with zero, and I mean zero mechanical problems on a 5.4 3V and 168K miles. I traded it only because I got the "itch".
