I just received a extended service plan from ford.I was wondering if anyone had a problem with this plan? Or is it a waste of money.

With extended warranties, you must determine if it covers "breakage" only, or also "wear and tear". I purchased a 2006 Explorer in January 2010 from CarMax. I purchased the extended warranty for additional 3 years / 36,000 miles. That warranty covers wear and tear. A month or so after the purchase, I noticed a drip on the driveway. Took it to my mechanic, and a gasket on the gear transfer for the 4 wheel drive was leaking. Also had a brake shift interlock problem, where it was difficult to shift out of park (gear would not release). Took it to CarMax and it was all covered.
The point is, check the Ford warranty. If it does not specifically state wear and tear are covered, I would cancel the policy and get one from another company that covers wear and tear.

Thanks for the very good advice. Can't wait to check and see what excuse they give me.

I been thinking about getting a set of headlight bulbs. Has anyone heard of having trouble with wiring burning or other problems? Its for a 2008 Mountaineer.
