Oaknest -- THANK YOU for prompt, great tip about checking online first and negotiating. What I've been told is they will only cover up to 100,000 miles so to buy from the 44k that I am at to that they want $2395. I will let you know what I end up with.
FOLLOW UP -- I just tried to obtain a quote from FloodFord and the FordESP sites. Both said I am not eligible for an extended warranty because I am past 36k. If you know of any other options, please share. Thanks!

My ESP purchases were on a new car purchase with 125000 ESP warranty. I don't have advice on 44k miles. I can see where it would be tricky since the bumper-to-bumper warranty is expired.
Just remember that there is a huge markup in whatever the dealer initially offers, so make a counter-offer about 40% less. If you have multiple Ford dealers nearby, you might try counter-offers. I hate paying full retail.
