If you were concerned about not racking up sufficient miles but needed more time a 7 year policy may have been better even at the same mileage as that would buy you more time. However the more time and or miles covered the greater the cost of the service plan.

Just a thought as the ESP starts from the date the car was sold even though it may have been purchased at a later date, so in 5 years from the date of sale it would be coming up on the end of the power train warranty at that point.
Thanks for the info suss6052. The main reason I purchased the ESP was for the maintenance, I just don't have the time to service my vehicles anymore. Besides by the time the warranty is up I'll be ready for a new car anyway. I feel a mid-life crisis coming on in the form of a Mustang, Focus ST, or an STI...or something like that.
