I just hate to see people get bent over when it comes to making claims with them. We have 2 trucks in the shop now both with aftermarket warranties, both have blown headgaskets, one company has already declined because of the "trickle affect" basically the oil cooler takes out the egr
cooler then the egr
cooler takes out the headgaskets, they wont cover it because that's how it happened, even if that's not true in each case..they take a TSB
over facts (how convenient)
The other truck is here and it will be torn down soon for the company to come and inspect but I would guess they will deny it too, it never fails.
These companies have no problem taking you $1500-2000+ for this "fantastic" warranty that sounds great on paper when you don't have any problems. But mark my words, you have an issue, they will weasel their way out of covering it..
Be smart guys, buy the FORD ESP ..if you are going to buy anything. And just make sure of what you are getting, just because you buy a warranty from Ford doesn't mean its a FORD ESP, the dealerships do sell these crappy aftermarket warranties that are typically several hundred cheaper then the FORD ESP.
Also when buying any warranty, weigh your options as to what you could buy for upgrades and fixes for known problems vs. buying a warranty that may or may not cover said failures.
ok, rant over..
