You have the top end coverage including rental first 3 years (within mileage) and then whatever you have from Ziegler takes over. In any event...since they're both ford warranties you'd be able to go to any ford dealership in Canada or US to have it serviced.

With all the electronics, I'm going for the 7yr/125K Premium Care.

I don't like paying for future repairs either, but you know the

Sync/tranny/sunroof, etc., may not make it to 125K!

Thx!

I purchased my premium care 6 years/100,000 miles extended warranty for roughly $1100. Like previous posters, just too much technology to skip it on the Titaniums

If you have a problem in the 3/36 warranty period, who covers it
(assuming you buy a plan from Ziegler)? Does the Ziegler plan take over after the 3/36?

Premium Care Warranty - $890. As others have said, I have the TI and with all the technology in that car, I didn't want to run into problems. I also purchased Ziebart rust protection. I have to take the car back to the dealer to get that done.

Yes, I bought one. With this much technology, it seemed to me to pay for it than be sorry. And it is transferable, so if I sell it tomorrow, the buyer will have it for the rest of the period : 6 years.

How much are people paying for the $0 deductible PremiumCARE? The Ford Owner site quotes me $1130 all at once, and sites like Ziegler for whatever reason won't let me get a quote being a FL resident..

EDIT: just did a 5/60k with first day and enhanced rental coverage... came out to $690!!! E-mailed the quote to myself, will bring it in to my dealership this week and see what they say.

Paid a little more then a grand to upgrade to the 7 year 100000 mile. Trying to keep the car in the family for a while, figured it would be a good investment.

The Ziegler 'plan' IS the Ford plan. Z just sells it, they have NOTHING to do with it once you buy it. Then is is just Ford Extended warranty

Also, things like first day rental ARE covered by the Ford extended warranty from day one.. If your dealer is not happy to hand you a loaner..
So some stuff is covered anyway, 100% for three years, powertrain for five, emissions..
And even with the extended warranty, normal maintanence stuff is still your responsibility.
I am getting the 7 year, 48,000 mi primium care. $0.00 co-pay, same day rental for $625.
I cancelled the dealer where i bought my Focus where I got offered 7 year 36,000mi with a $100 co-pay no rental I paid them $1,400 for...
I feel like a fool for buying it... I got 100% of my money back.

$600 is worth 7 full years of no big expenses...

"Due to Florida State Insurance policy regulations, we are not able to sell discounted Ford ESP Plans to Florida residents."

:( this sucks.
