I appreciate your response. I took the info you sent on the warranty extension with me when I picked the car up today. They said that the coils were not covered by the warranty because they had not "misfired" but because there was an "RFI concern from the coils". If I understand it correctly, the coils were sending a signal that was interfering with the throttle body signal and causing the car to go into failsafe mode. Both the service manager and the mechanic suggested that I contact Ford and ask them to include this concern in the warranty and reimburse me for the work done ($1,300). Would like your opinion of this. Should it have been covered? What are the chances Ford would reimburse?
Thank you again for your response - I appreciate it very much

Were the coils actually replaced? If so then you'd have a good case. But RFI does not sound like the typical coil failure problem covered by the ext. warranty so I wouldn't be surprised if they said no. Won't hurt to ask though.

Yes, they said that 7 out of 8 coils were bad so they replaced all 8 of them.
