Tiger-Heli I usually telephone Jason at Anderson and Koch with questions like that.

My understanding is the enhanced puts you in a Focus or a Taurus instead of a Fiesta or a Chevy Aveo, and the first day rental puts you in a rental if your car will be more than an hour or two (or I think any time if you want to rent a car for a half-hour).

Not the same thing, but I could be wrong.

Personally, I'd opt for the first day and drop the enhanced - assuming my interpretation above is correct.

Raven0215 So if you get the enhanced rental option do you need the standard first day rental?

It looks like the enhanced is 170 where as you are paying 90 for the first day rental. I would rather just cancel out the first day rental and get the enhanced if possible since it sounds like the enhanced would cover you for the first day as well. On zeigler ford I am not able to do this but anderson and kock appears to let me.

Tiger-Heli Links have been posted previously.

Note that the maintenance plans and the ESP warranty are two different things - although the dealer can sell them both together or do unofficial maintenance (i.e. free oil changes at THEIR service department only.)

Hey DanteCaspian,

Sorry, stupid question, but where did you get your ESP? Was it directly through your Ford dealer?

Tiger-Heli Good point - OTOH, I believe the warranty is also transferable from previous to current owner - so you can possibly leave the warranty in place and increase the selling price to cover it.

Correct - but it only goes up about $100 after 12 months/12K miles. Not sure if it jumps again at 24M/24K and not sure if you can even buy it after 36M/36K, but the powertrain (which would include the DCT) is 60M/60K from the factory.

I am not having any DCT issues but have only driven 1400 miles. My build date is May something '12.

That would not be legal in California - the warranty will start on the day the car is first sold. The miles would be a push though....whether it had 3 miles or 300, the clock starts on day sold to customer and ends on 11:59 PM on that day three years later, or at 36,000 miles.

TiPilot Update...

I ended up buying my ESP through Troy Dietrich of FD Warranty (http://fd-warranty.com) this evening. His was the best price out of the 7 online dealers (Zeigler, Anderson & Koch, Troy, Flood, Warrick, and Hunt were the others) I contacted.

PremiumCARE, 7Y/100K, No First-Day Rental
- $869 for a $100 deductible
- $994 for a $50 deductible

I opted for the latter; if the car's in more than twice in the next 6.25 years (post-3Y/36K) I'll be saving money. Odds are it will - plus I'll probably be much more inclined to take it in when it's only $50 out-of-pocket.
