Extend dealer warrany from 3 yr to 7??

  1. I'm purchasing an '08 GT500 TODAY and of course, the dealership offered to extend the factory warranty from 3 yrs to 7 year for $2,500.

    Normally not a good purchase. Any reason to get it?
  2. $2500 for an extra four years? :shrug: What does it cover (ie - no powertrain coverage, limited powertrain, etc)?

    I'm sure you could find an aftermarket warranty company that could provide similar warranty coverage for a lower rate if you shop around...
  3. Good luck with your new car. You don't have to get an extended warranty now. You can get one down the road before the factory warranty runs out. I drove my GT-500 out of the dealership last week and didn't take an extended warranty on it yet.
  4. If you plan on keeping it stock then get it. But if you plan to mod it, don't because FORD will probably void it if they see mods assuming that is why the car has a problem.
  5. Do not consider any warranty other than Ford. A Ford dealership will honor a Ford warranty but may not honor another. You might have to pay for repairs yourself and hope the other company will reimburse you.
  6. Dont buy it until your factory is going to expire...
