When you purchase a Ford vehicle from a dealership, you are usually given the option to purchase an extended service plan (ESP) to help cover the cost of certain repairs. One way to think of an extended service plan, often called an extended warranty, is like health insurance for your car. When you need a covered repair, you go to an approved repair shop and pay a deductible and your extended warranty covers the rest.
Read on to learn the specifics of a Ford Extended Service Plan, as well as other protection options for your Ford vehicle, including extended warranty coverage from CARCHEX.
A Ford ESP can help minimize the costs to keep your car on the road. Most of the benefits of an extended service plan are in the covered repairs offered by your plan. There are four types of service plans available from Ford Protect.
|Name||Number of Covered Components||Coverage Summary|
|PremiumCARE||Over 1,000||Comprehensive bumper-to-bumper coverage|
|ExtraCARE||113||Covering vehicles with few high-tech features|
|BaseCARE||84||Coverage of car systems that affect drivability|
|PowertrainCARE||29||Essential coverage for basic mechanical components|
Extended warranties often include extra perks for your vehicle. Ford includes these benefits in their extended service plans:
When you buy a Ford Extended Service Plan, you’re buying protection for additional items not usually covered in a factory warranty. You may think that an extended service plan sounds just like a warranty. After all, extended service plans are often called extended warranties.
Even though they are both authorized by Ford Motor Company, there are important differences between a Ford ESP and manufacturer warranty, as well as factory warranties for certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles.
Although each of the warranties included in a new Ford purchase covers different components, manufacturer warranty coverage is limited to parts or components that are found to be defective. This limits your factory warranty coverage and does not include breakdowns or repairs needed due to the regular wearing of your car’s components.
On the other hand, an extended vehicle service contract provides covered repairs for stated components due to normal use of your vehicle. As your car ages and parts begin to naturally wear out, your extended warranty plan may cover the necessary repairs. Other differences between a manufacturer’s warranty and an extended service plan include:
A Ford manufacturer’s warranty offers protection to defective parts on your new or CPO vehicle. However, the limited coverage terms mean your new vehicle will lose protection in only a few years. Purchasing an extended warranty from third-party warranty company like CARCHEX can help you protect your vehicle longer.
The best way to protect your Ford is through a third-party protection plan from a reputable extended warranty provider like CARCHEX. There are numerous benefits to choosing a third-party company over a branded Ford ESP, including:
