Well, Just Bought the ESP. Less Worries.

My car purchase is 3 years past, and I decided to get the ESP. I got the "Premium" 3 year, full-boat, bumper-to-bumper, $50 deductible, Ford ESP.

I had it on my last Mustang, and it saved my butt in repair costs.

$1323.00 @30k miles. Premium coverage, with the $50 deductible.

They even offer 0 interest payments over 18 months, so I did that.

I like knowing it's covered, worth every penny. They're Fords, they break. With the transmission and suspension issues these cars have, I'm not interested in risking it. If I sell the car, I get the pro-rated amount back.

Here's what's covered, the different plans. The standard deductible is $100. It was about $100 more to go to the $50 deductible. No brainer.

I can't believe I've had this car for 3 years. Time just flies.

Yes Time will Fly when your having fun. That is a very good deal. Not sure what type of modifications you have done to your car, but will that ESP have possible issues with warranties and aftermarket parts like the original warranty. Just Asking.

I believe I financed an extended warranty when I purchased the car up to 100K. I need to find that paperwork again. I have done quite a bit to my car that might cause warranty issues but I am crossing my fingers and keep on modding.

I have heavily modded my car!!!!!

I started with deep pile, plush, soft and comfortable after-market floor mats. Other than that, just a Bama tune, and they cover #8 cylinder issues, so no worries there.

My worries are with the suspension and transmission. That stuff can get spendy to repair.

Good deal

I got ESP's on both Mustangs right from the get go, I saved so much on the initial purchase price of both cars that ESP's were a no brainer for me. It's nice having that extra peace of mind.

The 2012 is 7 year/84k miles and the 2014 is 7 year/77k miles (not sure the reason for the mileage drop, but at the rate we are putting miles on ours we'll hit the 7 years first).

The only 2 other minor difference between the 2 is that on my wife's even the clutch DISC (normally a wear item like tires) is covered. It isn't on mine; and hers has no deductible after the OEM 3/36 warranty expires, mine has a $100 deductible after OEM expiration.

Major mods have never been in the cards for us, I am expecting (hint hint) a set of GT-500's for my birthday in a few months and that's really about it, and all my wife wants is some 2013-2014 style splatter guards that, conveniently enough AM sells-neither being warranty killers.

NoVa5.0, when does the coverage begin. I thought the ESP began from the vehicles in-service date, which would be when you drove off the lot when new, or am I mistaken ?

An ESP is an extension of your warranty, with different coverage levels available. Of course, it's actually an insurance policy, but never mind that. So, once the factory 3/36 runs out, the ESP takes over. I bought the top-O'-the-line ESP, so it's just like the original warranty.

Still, it's not like they charge you double for the initial 3/36 if you buy the ESP when you buy the car. It just extends the warranty.
