What should one expect to pay for a 2013 Fusion hybrid Premium Care extended warranty?
How many miles/years does it cover?

I too got the $800 camry Hybrid extended warranty from the information I got online. It was 100,000 miles or 7 years. Will run out this year.

 

My dealer offered to sell either a Ford extended warranty, or one called EasyCare which he said was bought by Ford, but who knows it may be a 3rd party warranty where the hassle with reimbursements comes in.

 

Anyway, I said no thanks I didn't want one at the time of sale (thankfully they offered it but were not pushy), but just in case I wanted to come back and purchase in the future could he give me quotes on 3-year and 4-year warranties, as I drive just over 40k per year so any longer terms than that don't suit me.  He said the quotes were not the retail price, that the retail prices were a bit higher, which I think is a common statement to make a consumer want to get more of a deal when he or she can and thus plunk down the money or just roll it into the purchase of the car where some consider it most convenient.

 

Ford premium care warranty - 3yr/125k = $1,620 4yr/125k = $1,710 (I think it is $100 deductible)

 

Easycare - 3yr/100k = $1,276  4yr/100k = $1,338 ($100 deductible)

 

I've already checked the rates for a Ford warranty at Flood Ford in RI, where I bought two previously, 3yr/125k = $1,175  4yr/125k = $1,275, so if I choose to purchase one (the debate on the viability of one goes on in this thread and several others) I will go through them.

Update from the above -- I purchased the extended warranty from Flood ESP and instead of getting confirmation in snail mail, got an email back (10 days after ordering) with PDF files or the ESP contract, and also a copy of the invoice.  Below is the text from the email:

 

Your ESP order is now complete. Attached you will find a copy of your contract, and invoice you may print for your records. There is nothing you need to sign or send back. Your order was electronically registered with Ford, and the VIN was recorded in the national ESP database. Any dealer you go to will automatically be able to find you in their ESP computer. There are no cards or papers you need to carry. Your credit card charge will show up as "Saccucci Honda". That is our sister dealership and billing location. Did you know we also can sell you Ford Factory Maintenance Plans? Not only are they below most dealer's prices, but you will not have to pay the high labor rates most dealerships now have. You can literally save yourself thousands. It even covers wear and tear items, such as brake pads, wiper blades, and spark plugs. Take a look at the brochure here. For pricing and ordering see our website.

I spoke to the dealer regarding an extended Ford Warranty.  They told me they will sell any of the Ford warranties for $200 over their cost.  I think that would be a good deal?

When I go into the dealer, I will most likely lease  this car. I was wondering about the maintenance plan for the oil and such on this car and what the rate for that would be as well. 

 

I hate changing my own oil an figured I'd check into it

I found the extended warranty at much cheaper than dealer offered. My dealer offered $1195 6yr 75K, I got online from fordwarrantys.com for $795.

Is that site legitimate?  I would love to save some money on my ESP but I am skeptical about that site... I mean they can't even spell warranties.

Take a look at floodfordesp.com and see what the price is there, I've just purchased another XW from them as noted above, they are definitely legit and price is probably comparable for the time/miles/coverage combo you want.

Give Troy an email.  He might save you some money.  troy@maritimeford.net.   I'm not trying to promote or advertise for them.  They just have been very good for us.  Never a problem.

My experience is that by the 6-7 yr mark something major needs come up and that alone is work ~ 1.5K. I normally put ~ 15K/yr, so 7/100k seems reasonable for me.

From what I have read, Ford "sells" the plans to all the dealers at fixed price X and they are free to mark up to what they want. Hince the 'special' price they offer you.

 

Flood goes for volume and I will have their price in my hand when I go to pick up mine. "Match it or lose the business," unless there is sales tax, then web ftw. :-)

I think this is true. My dealer wanted to sell me the 7/75K ESP w/ $100 deductible for $2.5K. Price @ floodfordesp.com is like $1K. Ridiculous. I told the finance manager why his price why so high. His only answer was that the dealer I was getting the lower price from was most likely getting a kickback from ford to sell these. As if they were not! 

From that moment he didn't offer me anything else, which was fine by me because I only spend like 10 minutes with him. He did get me 1.29% for my financing, after I told him I had 1.7% secured with Penfed. Not sure if I made the right decision by taking the 1.29% since the impact to my monthly payment is neglectable, and I know they just basically sold the loan to some credit union I don't know about. But I'm happy with my new HyTi.  :happy feet:

They got you 1.29%, seems really good for a Hybrid. Can you share any info about it, i.e. term of loan, how much financed? I'm hoping to take delivery this week and best I found was 1.99% through my Credit Union. 

Btw, which dealership did you use? I'm at Landmark and it'd be nice to know how to handle those finance manager's!

I am a little ticked off at the moment. I pulled out the paperwork on the Extended Warranty, and found out it is NOT Ford ESP that I specifically asked for. Going to  in tomorrow and discuss it with them. Have had issues from the first moth as the auto payments failed and I wound up having to dish out twice as much to catch up.  :rant:

When I bought my FFH I was actually offered two different extended warranties, one was the Ford ESP and one was some other name (don't remember, it's posted here somewhere), I guess your dealer also had the 'brand X' plan.... which sucks if that's not what you were expecting.

We might buy one as we get closer to the expiration of our factory warranty. If we do buy one I imagine in will be from Flood Ford as no one else seems to come close to their prices. At this point I am not inclined to buy an extended warranty. I want to wait and see how the car has performed in the first few yrs though before making a decision

I specifically ASKed for the Ford ESP. Reason being that for $100 less I could get it from Flood, but wanted to keep the business local.   Going to cool off before I confront them on it.

I purchased mine online for my 2010 FFH and went to buy for the new 2013 FFH.  I got from

the same online place, they even handled the cancel of the 1st warranty which still had time and

miles on it.   Then applied the credit to the new one and it was still well worth it to do for the

peace of mind in brings just knowing how complex this car is.

 

A few things of note:

 

You need to go to the warranty selling dealer to cancel an existing warranty on your trade-in.

They get the money back and give it to you or in my case apply it to the new warranty.  They

needed to see the new car sale/mileage statement which I emailed to them.

 

There is a $75 cancellation fee that comes right off the refunded amount.

 

If any claims at all, that reduces the amount paid back.  My original Ford ESP Premium

Care for the 2010 FFH (08/2009) was $635 with same day rental, $50 deductible.  About

40 months later, I got back $107.00 @ 26000 miles and that is with the $75 taken out.

All done on the computer by the selling dealer.

 

I was told I had one claim, they couldn't provide specifics, but I did get a rental for 1 day

while they fixed the mis-wired Sill Plates (Ford parts installed by Ford dealer are covered

under ESP).

 

When you take your car for service, ask them to verify that your ESP warranty shows

on the computer as you purchased it.

I'd absolutely go with the Ford warranty over any third party.

What is the cost for the extended warranty on the Fusion Hyd.?


The dealer quoted me 1100 for 6 years and 60M miles.

I pick up my 2013 Fusion Hybrid tomorrow.  The dealer wants way too much for the premium care ESP.  I'll wait until just before 12000 miles before I call the Ford dealer in MA where I have purchased my last 2 ESP warranties.  Theirs cost less than half of what the dealer wants.
