My reason for having one is peace of mind of course but also for the rental car. I only have one car and stuck if I don't have one.
I have noticed that while searching around at random Ford Dealerships websites. I have seen the premium warranty from Ford for 1300 from one dealer, and I believe it was 7 or 800 from another. The guy at the Ford dealership was going through some bs about how I could only get an extended warranty then and there.

Funny - I keep getting mail (from every dealership I've ever had service at) about my factory warranty running out and how I should buy an extended warranty. They should save themselves some money and check their systems before they send the mail since I already have a 6 year / 125k mile extended warranty through Zeigler.

tru88, not sure who your worked with at Camelback Ford. My finance guy was Karl and I thought he was awesome. The extended warranty they prefer to offer is through MPP which is one of the better 3rd party extended warranty companies. I had an MPP policy on my 2008 Nissan Sentra and it was a life saver when I had to have both strut assemblies replaced on that car! When you have your car serviced at the purchasing dealership, there is no deductible on that warranty.

I kinda felt the same about factory extended warranty vs. 3rd party extended warranty when I bought my Nissan, but was very happy when I had to use my MPP extended warranty.

Be sure to check out what your extended warranty covers, wear items are not covered as an example. It is easy to over warranty a car as the OEM covers power train items after the initial 3 years.
