Never heard about the refund if you don't use the extended warranty. I did buy my GT today from a dealer in Southern California and asked about the extended warranty (ESP). I ended up choosing an 8 year/60,000 mile plan. Dealer said retail for this plan was $1595.00. I countered with $1,000 and he accepted.
Had ESP on a Bronco that needed new rear axles. Only cost me a $100.00. Like all insurance, expensive if you never need it, but dirt cheap if you do. I know Ford should be around for awhile, at least my lifetime which is why I bought their plan. Be careful if you buy an extended warranty from other then the manufacturer. I've seen them go out of business, or poor customer service. Plus, with other plans, you either pay for the repair and get reimbursed, or wait for them to approve the repairs. With ESP, take it to any Ford dealer to get it fixed. No waiting for approval.
I was waiting for my 03 Excursion, but if I can get the dealer to sell it to my for $1,000, just like the Mustang, I'll buy it from him.
Whatever you do, negotiate this item. I've heard it is nothing but profit for the dealer. They knocked off $595.00 for me without batting an eye. Makes me wish I went lower.

Many plans to choose from. Just match months/mileage/price to your situation.
