How Do I Get the Best Price on a Ford Extended Warranty?

If you are looking to buy an extended warranty online, remember that not all extended warranties are created equal.

The average price for an extended warranty is $1,000 to $1,500, but the price can vary based on a number of factors, including:

  • Age and Mileage—Older vehicles and vehicles with over 100,000 miles typically require more repairs, which drives up the price of the contract.
  • Vehicle Model—Luxury cars use parts that are more expensive to replace. The more expensive your vehicle, the more you’re likely to pay for a warranty.
  • Coverage Level—Some vehicles are more reliable than others and require more coverage. Powertrain coverage is cheapest, and bumper-to-bumper or exclusionary coverage is more expensive.
  • Deductible—The higher the deductible, the less you’ll pay for your overall contract. Deductibles typically range from $0 to $250.

Here are some tips to get the best Ford extended warranty price.

Look for Third-Party Providers

Dealerships often mark up Ford extended warranty costs, and they may pressure you to buy extra coverage at the time of your car purchase. Remember that third-party providers generally offer better pricing on warranty coverage than car manufacturers do, so you don’t have to feel the pressure to buy a dealership warranty on the spot.

Buy Before Your Coverage Expires

One great way to keep the price of an extended warranty low is to buy a plan before your current Ford factory warranty expires. The older your car, the more expensive it is to cover, so don’t wait too long to buy.

Shop Around

Most importantly, find the right fit for your car by researching warranty providers that offer competitive pricing with affordable, flexible payment plans. Some third-party plans cost more than $2,000, but you can also find plans lower than $1,000, according to Edmunds.

By researching your options, you can secure the best price on your Ford extended warranty.

Pay Attention to Deductibles

While some extended car warranties will charge a deductible per repair visit, others may charge a deductible for every covered repair item. Make sure your contract only requires a deductible per visit.

CARCHEX offers plans with deductibles as low as $0. But, you can always lower your premium by opting for a higher deductible.

Buy Appropriate Coverage for Your Vehicle

Is your vehicle older? How reliable is the model? Does it have fancy electronic components that are more expensive to repair? The answers will help you decide if a powertrain warranty is enough or if you need more extensive coverage. While more coverage is more expensive, you’re less likely to get hit with unexpected repair costs.

In the 2020 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study, J.D. Power ranks Ford reliability above average, but no car is immune from breakdowns. Extended coverage can protect your car as it ages.

Use a Payment Plan

If you can’t pay out-of-pocket right this moment for a major car repair, then chances are you can’t pay the full price of a vehicle service contract up front. When you buy a Ford extended warranty, ask about affordable, monthly payment plans. These plans may allow you to pay off your Ford extended warranty in as little as six months or over the course of 24 months.

Ford Protect Extended Service Plans

It’s possible to get third-party coverage that compares to the manufacturer’s extended protection plan. It’s important to know what the manufacturer covers, so you know what to look for when shopping online.

Ford Protect Extended Service Plans currently offer four levels of extended coverage:

  • PremiumCARE—This is the highest level of protection, covering more than 1,000 parts from bumper to bumper.
  • ExtraCARE—At 113 covered components, this plan is recommended for vehicles with fewer high-tech components.
  • BaseCARE—The next level of coverage from Ford covers 84 components that influence drivability, including steering, suspension, braking, and more.
  • PowertrainCARE—This plan includes 29 basic engine and transmission components.

The Ford extended warranty also includes 24/7 roadside assistance and rental car benefits. These peace of mind benefits can also be found in third-party extended warranty plans, so compare reimbursements and emergency services when shopping for your contract.

Is Buying Online Better?

Don’t limit yourself to dealership repairs or dealership service that only includes a few plan options. When you buy online, you can look at sample contracts from multiple companies at once. Shopping online gives you the ability to tailor your coverage to your liking at a better price.
