There are several warranties with various time and mileage coverage that come with the purchase of a new vehicle. These warranties provide comprehensive product coverage against defects in workmanship or materials by the manufacturer at no cost to the consumer. Extended Service Coverage is a vehicle service contract purchased by the consumer which provides additional protection of stated components that goes beyond the manufacturer's warranty period extending coverage up to a specific time and mileage duration.
To clarify, a warranty comes with the vehicle from the manufacturer at no additional cost to the consumer, whereas an Extended Service Contract is an agreement for repair coverage protection which a consumer purchases separately for the vehicle. Even though it is not accurate, the phrase "extended warranty" has become a term used by consumers and those within the ESC industry more so to aid in the understanding of what the product does, than what it is.
Here are several reasons to consider. First, the price of a plan will be less when the purchase of coverage is made within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles of the vehicle's warranty period. Second, buying early locks in today's price which protects you from future plan price increases. Furthermore there are many benefits that come with the purchase of Extended Service Coverage which are not covered by the factory warranty. Although new Ford and Lincoln vehicles come with Roadside Assistance benefits for the duration of the factory powertrain warranty period such as towing, lock-out assistance, flat tire changes, battery jump starts, and out of fuel assistance. In addition to those same benefits, Extended Service Coverage also provides rental car reimbursement, destination assistance, and emergency travel expense reimbursement.
That will depend upon which type of Extended Service Coverage you purchase. Extended Service Coverage is offered as either a New ESC or Used USC plan based on whether or not the vehicle was covered under an existing factory Bumper to Bumper warranty at the time of purchase.
The New ESC plans begins from the original warranty start date of the vehicle and zero miles and expires on that date 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 years in the future or at the mileage distance selected for the plan whichever comes first. The Used ESC plans begins on the date of plan purchase and expires on that date 1,2,3,4 or 5 years in the future or at the expiration distance of the plan which is determined by adding the ESC plan mileage term to the odometer reading on the date of plan purchase. Our site simplifies this by showing your plan term time and mileage on both the plan builder page as well as on the final checkout page. If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-555-5555.
ECS plans allow you to choose where you bring your vehicle for service. All ASE certified Dealerships and repair facilities may perform repairs on your vehicle. If your vehicle is inoperable you should contact Roadside Assistance and they will assist you.
Beginning October 2014, on Extended Service Coverage plans pertaining only to the following models, a total engine hours expiration term will also apply. The models are F250, F350, F450 pickups Gas and Diesel, E-Series Diesel, Transit Diesel and finally Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility models. One engine hour equals 25 miles. An Extended Service Coverage plan term of 7 years / 100,000 miles / 4000 hours will expire one of three ways. It will either expire 7 years from the factory warranty start date or at 100,000 miles on the odometer or at 4,000 engine hours whichever occurs first.
The issue regarding modifications done to a vehicle that is still covered by the new vehicle warranty or Extended Service Coverage plan is best understood by reading the statement below:
What is not covered by this agreement - Repairs caused by...
The warranty is not voided per se, but a repair claim would be denied.
You are required to maintain your vehicle as recommended by your Vehicle Manufacturer in the owners manual to keep your coverage in effect and be able to show proper documentation of it if requested, but the maintenance is not required to be done at a dealership. However, when you regularly perform your routine maintenance at the local dealership you will have a well documented vehicle maintenance record available for review if ever required.
Yes, you can change your own oil and filter if you desire. Just be sure the oil and filter you use meets the proper specifications as outlined by the Vehicle Manufacturer in the vehicle owners manual and be sure to keep a well documented log book and all receipts that show proof of maintenance.
No. Extended Service Coverage is not like many of the Third Party Warranty companies that require you to show all maintenance records each time you file a repair claim. Extended Service Coverage does have the right and may request to see the vehicle maintenance records if a repair claim looks like the failure may be the result of a lack of maintenance.
Your vehicle will only require an inspection if it is beyond the Bumper to Bumper factory warranty period.
When you purchase your Used Extended Service Coverage from us we have the inspector come to you. We arrange for an inspector to call you to schedule an appointment for the inspection which usually takes about one hour to perform at your home, place of work or mutual location.
