Warranties

When I bought my 2006 F350 I was offered, and purchased, a “Mastertech Extended warranty” does anyone know anything about these or have any experience with them? I have read that any modifications void the warranty, but the truck came with a lift, tires, and aftermarket intake already on it. Is this warranty basically useless for me or is it worth keeping? I’ve got 60 days to cancel for a refund.

Re: Warranties

I've heard from several people that no warranty is worth it, unless it's directly from FORD MOTOR COMPANY. And to never buy any "aftermarket" insurance from a 3rd party.

But that's just what I've heard, I'm assuming because 3rd parties like to weasel their way out of claims in any way possible

Re: Warranties

a car salesman of 40 years on another site said the same exact thing.
used car warranties are a scam designed to make money for the company.

Re: Warranties

we had a guy show up at our shop with an aftermarket warranty and they sent out an adjuster took one look at the non stock wheels and non stock lift and said the warranty should have never been sold for the truck the guy tried the that's the way he bought it but they did refund him his money. And as a mechanic we have been dealing with these companies and they never want to pay and spend more time looking for reasons not to pay then paying.

Re: Warranties

When I was still running my shop, 95 % of the time, the warranty company turned down the claim
They are good at taking your money, not so much at giving it back.

That’s what I was afraid of, I spoke to the salesman today and he said they’ll take care of the current issue(see my last post, and damn sure let me know what you think) and I asked how the warranty will do me any good with the modifications being on there and he said “bro, we sold you that truck like that, we will definitely fix any issues that come up with that warranty trust me” now if I can just get the service manager at the dealership to put that in writing for me lol

Too bad I can only like this one one time.

Along with getting it in writing get the owner of the dealership to sign it
