Good price?
This should cost about $1100 with first day rental or $1250 with a 75/day rental budget.

Is ESP worth it?
At your mileage point, I would say no. Unless you've had multiple dealer visits or have a reason to believe some problem is brewing, it's probably not worth it.

When I bought my plan, I had a list of about 10 things that were not to my satisfaction with the car and remained that way after some visits (dct, mft, sagging headliner, drifting steering gear, speaker rattles, dislodged seat cover, broken tweeter cover, rough idle, some trim issues, key fob locking delay, rain sensing wiper dry swipe). So I figured something would break after 3/36 and the rental/roadside coverage was worth it to me (I'm already at 13 free rental days).
