With all the high tech and being the first year model I ended up getting the PremiumCARE 7y 100k for $1190 from the dealer, $55 more than floodfordesp, and got 60 month 1.29% Financing. Were both my credit unions were 2.25% and 1.49%.

OK, question.   I was planning on skipping the warranty when I picked up my car today, so I didn't bother researching.  Then, I decided that it was probably worth it given the vast amount of electronics (and my general feeling that Ford stuff tends to break).   I ended up buying the warranty from the dealer.  Premium Care 6yr 75k mile with $50 deductible for $1,325.

 

Fordwarranty.com shows that one to be about $1,100.  Floodfordesp.com say $860, so it looks like I made a bad deal.  Anybody know how successful you can be trying to go back and argue with the dealer after the deal was done?

 

Barring that, which has me feeling silly, the car is awesome and I got a great deal on it from the dealer.

If the dealer says the deal is done and they can't change it, you can always cancel , I found this on a web site.

 

'All Ford ESP contracts can be canceled for a full refund within 30 days (if you have not used any aspect of the plan).  Beyond 60 days, you will receive a pro-rated refund from Ford Motor Company.'

 

I have also read somewhere that there could be a $75 cancellation fee.

Depending on the dealer, if you tell them you found it elsewhere for X amount and want to cancel, they may refund you a difference instead of letting you cancel. I did this on a Prius with Toyota(made a KILLING on that car!)

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:

 

Nobody in sales likes an informed comparision shopper...   Although, they also know that can easily make a matching deal with you since, OH SO MANY people do NOT know to shop around.

You want to watch smoke curl out of a car salesman's ears, tell him "I think we can do this deal, if I can buy an extended warranty on the second ten years and hundred thousand miles. Funny!

This thread makes me sick on one hand, but hopeful on the other.  We ended up buying at FFH on Monday (Memorial Day) after a trip to "just look at a few different hybrids."  My other half fell in love with the Fusion - I liked it but didn't go overboard.  I worked on the salepeople for about 4 hours and got a smokin deal.  Then we were sent into the Financial guy.  He completely wanted to rework the deal.  When I told him no he divided and conquered us.  I was so mad I left.  The other half finished the deal and paid a ridiculous price for an extended warranty.  Far more than the worst stories here.  And it's not even a Ford warranty.  Some "Platinum Elite" nonsense.

 

I'll be canceling it and going with one of the others here.

After reading this thread, I went back to my dealer to cancel the overpriced ESP I purchased during the sale. I was uninformed about warranty pricing I'm ashamed to say.

Just my luck, I opted to not cancel at this time because they will only send the refund to the finance company (fine print on the contact) if you take out a loan. I was hoping to get the refund in hand and then buy online at Flood Ford.

I decided to go ahead and cancel my overpriced warranty today even though I knew they would refund my lender instead of me. acdii called it, the finance lady didn't like the idea of some internet seller taking their business so they matched Flood Fords price. I ended up getting 7 years, 125,000 miles and $0 deductible for the same price that I originally paid for 6 years, 100,000 and $0 deductible.

Wow, I'm glad I didn't cave in.  My dealership said it would be $1800 for the premium 6 yr 75k miles, and if I didn't do it before I bought the car and tried to get it the next day, the cheapest I could get one would be $3900....That seems a little ridiculous after seeing the prices listed above.  I did end up buying the extended maintenance plan for $525 for 3yr 36k, not sure if that was a good deal or not.  He said the 15 and 30k inspections would be $300 so I'd be saving money on those, plus get oil changes, wiper blades for free.  I guess I should have done some research first.

I just had to replace the sunroof tracks on my 2010 Milan.  $870 + labor.  ESP covered it.  I had a $400 led taillight assembly replaced back in May, so I've pretty much even on the deal.  The funny thing is I got ESP because I was concerned with the cutting edge hybrid tech and the sync electronics, Which ahve been flawless so far.

Those inspections are pretty bogus. They don't really check anything and they charge a fortune for them. You can skip those...Considering that in 3yr/36k you should only need 3 oil changes that isn't much value either...perhaps you can cancel the plan?

My dad got an extended warranty plan on his 2003 Honda Civic. He absolutely made use of it, and they covered everything. He then got the same warranty on his 2010 Prius. I got the same warranty on my 2007 Volvo S60 and they covered everything during the 5 years that I owned it. I had some little critter make it's way into the A/C and ended up eating it's way out, destroying the unit - they covered it. And when my transmission got locked in Drive, they paid to have it towed and repaired. These two incidents cost substantially more than the cost of the warranty. And they give the option of using After-market parts for 100% coverage, or OEM parts for a co-pay. Since they guaranteed the work, I accepted the aftermarket parts, and had not problems afterwards.

In addition, it was transferable once when I sold the Volvo, and it still had almost a year/5,000 miles left on it. I can't remember how much I paid for it, but when my FFH's 3yr/36K miles is almost up, I will get the same one again.

If anyone is interested in finding out about it, let me know and I'll find the name and phone number of the company.

My 2011 f250 sync system always had issues. Wouldnt constantly reproduce the issue tho and it wasnt covered under warranty since i couldnt. Had the ESP on it and ended up getting the ac replaced with it because it was leaking more than a broken water pipe.

I might have bought an extended warranty had I been offered one from Ford. Instead the finance guy was hard selling a third party extended warranty and did not even give me the opportunity to look at Ford's extended warranty.  It was painfully clear to me it was all about the finance guy meeting his sales goal. He totally pissed me off.

We bought our car last week and got the 6 yr/100k mile Premium Care Warranty for $1095.  I think the finance guy started at something like $1800, and that was supposedly a "deal" (my sister-in-law works at the dealership).  When I told him I bought the same plan for our 2010 for $1030 he about fell off his chair.  I wasn't planning to get the warranty at the same time we bought the car but told him if he could match Flood's price I would buy it.  I gave in a little on the cost because that was several years ago that I bought the first one.  In the end, I feel OK about it.

My sister, Ms Soft Touch, got taken to the cleaners by the Lexus dealer in Denver.  She bought a 2013 Lexus ES300 hybrid after I bought my MKZ hybrid.  She paid full sticker, plus paid for that useless "protection" package, as well as an extended warranty.  Total bill?  $52K+ for a $46K car.  Unbelievable!

I got a 4 year 125K plan for the same price as Flood Ford offered.  My dealer knows me well enough to know not to try to over sell me.  Instead I asked for it.  With the amount of miles I put on, I can easily go beyond 125K in 4 years.  Have 7600 on the HyTi now since getting it June 4th.

You're piling the miles on faster than I am and I'm driving over 300mi per week.
