Thanks for the tip Sailor, that's great advice.

I believe I have around 66,000 miles and an extended warranty which the dealer said I would have to pay the $100 deductible for the work

sailor Extended warranties are extremely variable on coverage/deductibles, only the ppwk. you bought will give the answer.

Each provider & version they sell varies, even Ford has different levels avail..

This thread talks about earlier year different models than your '12 MkIII, any info. here might not apply.
Haha that would be great if I fell under the warranty but unfortunately I am over on mileage. However I do have an extended warranty that covers me to 120k miles. Hopefully I can use that and not have to pay any deductibles. I don't know how those extended warranties work
