I`ve owned several vehicles over the years and have lost money on 1 Extended warranty. Before my Ram turns 3,I will purchase an extended warranty for it. 2005 Ford Explorer is the vehicle I lost money on the warranty.

There are lucky and unlucky folks everywhere. The lucky feel extended warranties aren't worth a penny. The unlucky folks feel they're worth every penny.

I guess you could say I'm one of the unlucky. I've been a believer in various kinds of insurance (for many big ticket items) for many years. I don't blindly purchase; I do the same homework/research I would use for the purchase of any big ticket item---I shop around, read the fine print. All said and done, I'm way, way ahead of the curve in terms of ROI.

If you're one of the lucky, yes, YMMV.

They didn't on me with the Eco diesel. I paid 2400 and they paid out over 6k in my cost, theirs??. Maybe more as towing was included. I won on that one...

Seena lotta Ecodiesel issues in this thread. Curious what they were. Emissions, fuel, other stuff?

My DH works for a Ford Dealership and has a 2016 ford 250. Hes refused all extra warranties.. The FIL worked for 35 years at a Ford Engine Plant and he also refuses the extra stuff.. So I would say no....

Check out Lombard Ford. They offer genuine Ford coverage (that's the only way to go) for a discounted price.

there must be a bunch of profit in the 3rd party "warranties'. I keep getting their ads. read their postcard to get a company name to do a search on the web for comments/etc. and there isn't a name anywhere.
seems fishy

I Never did on any product
buy only new trucks (Chevy) and drive normaly,served me well over 40 years or so.
Extended waranty is waste of money imo

IF I was puling heavy loads I would get truck that has way more power then needed so as not to overload it.
