With the 5/75k mile premium care ESP that means the car is covered for just 15,000 additional miles and zero more years on the power train which already has a 5 year 60,000 mile warranty, and 2 years and 39,000 miles on the other covered components under the 3 year 36k factory bumper to bumper warranty.

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.
