Dealers for all brands suck.

Should have got paperwork each time you took it in. If you had it documented before warranty, it wouldn't have been an issue to get it fixed.

good luck either way you choose.
Never had an issue with the Ford extended warranty, I would shy away from others. I almost wonder if we should consider it part of the price when buying the car considering cost of repairs with all this technology these days.

That warranty is a bad deal. The Ford ESP is MUCH MUCH cheaper, however, I'm not so sure you can still buy the Ford ESP now that your car is out of the original 3/36. Maybe you can because it is still covered under the 5/60?

Unhappy AdvanceTrac loss of control

My 2012 Ford Mustang has nearly 60k miles on it. Pulled out of a parking lot and the traction control light came on and ABS breaks activated as I was going about 15 mph. I drove a block and it happened again as I came to a stop at the light. Car seemed to pull slightly to the right, but I never lost control of the car. Drove a few blocks to get gas, turned the car off, turned back on and no issues driving home. Going to Ford to check the issues. Seen a few AdvanceTrac issues going back to 2008 on many Fords. Not liking the idea that I may need to replace rack and pinion/steering
