And don't forget to check your insurance policy as well. Mine has "major mechanical coverage" . . which I didn't even know about until I read the policy carefully when I bought the last Focus.
I'd had a transmission put in my 2006 F-150 and, just out of curiousity, submitted the paperwork . . . 3 months later. The carrier wrote me immediately to get details, explained that they generally require approval in advance but told me "no problem, send the dealer contact info and we'll take care of every thing here".
Check for $3,700 arrived the next Thursday.
Not an all together bad deal.
