Basecare 8yr / 100K miles from Flood Ford (as mentioned here). Out the door price deducting Ford Pass points was $1040.
Turned out the Ford Pass points were worth $240 and not $200. Process was fast and easy, found here: https://www.floodfordesp.com/.
Other folks here mentioned better pricing from their dealer, I could not find that.

I am trying to make this decision also. May I ask why you went with Basecare and didn't step it up one to include Extracare? That includes the category High Tech which is the following:
  • Air suspension, electronic (selected components)
  • Compass and thermometer readout displays
  • Instrument Cluster, Electronic (Excluding Dash Pad, Clock, Audio and Visual Equipment)
  • Keyless entry system (excluding door handles)
  • Power antenna
  • Power door locks and retainer clips (excluding door handles)
  • Power seat motors
  • Power window motors/regulators
  • SecuriCode™ Keyless Entry
  • Speed Control
With this vehicle having so many electronics, I just want to make sure I am covered with all the sensors and electronics that could possibly go wrong. It's only a few more $$ to add this category. I can understand not going all the way to Premium (includes Emissions, Audio and Safety) since those 3 areas a person who has some skills could fix themselves and emissions as stated in an above post here in CA is covered for about 7 years by state law.

Is it wrong to think that High Tech is going to cover all the electronics? I'm coming from a vehicle that doesn't even have a backup camera so please forgive the general term "electronics." lol

Well, I was primarily interested in keeping the vehicle 'on the road'. I drive them until they die (344K,325K,315K,189K miles up to 20 years old) and haven't had any issues with High Tech stuff. I will admit, those vehicles had much less technology. Had I known that I was getting that nice Ford Pass credit, I may have reconsidered. Also, chances are it will be driven less than 10K miles / yr and lives in a garage. Sounds like Extracare is for you.

Extended warranty just adds the $$$$ and mostly never get used in my experience, I stopped buying them long time ago. 5yr/100k kms(canada!) Usually a new Gen truck is out before the base 3yr/60k kms expires. Before the warranty runs out the Gen 4 will be teased and then most will end up trading, selling their trucks.

Considering the technology they have now I am tempted to purchase with no hesitation at the moment. They did offer extended at the time of ordering and still can get it once the truck shows up. I did not go into details at the time so I don't know what options are available if any, but did state that the warranty is transferable which makes it a good selling feature.
The offer seemed to be a one time deal and maybe higher if I decide to purchase later...
So the website shown here seems to be for U.S models only?? I remember discussions that if you bought a used U.S vehicle and brought it into Canada that the dealer would not cover any warranty at all, not sure how true this is.
I believe its a Ford extended warranty and not a third party insurance you are paying for as I will ask for some details at the time of getting truck.

I’ve read this thread a few times since I picked up my Gen3 in September. I pretty much decided that I was not going to get an extended warranty. I haven’t bought one for years on any of my vehicles. My dealer wanted around $2,200 for the Premium Care 8/75,000 mile warranty. The more I’ve driven my truck the more I realized all the expensive tech in her. I looked on Flood City Ford website the other day and they listed the Premium Care 8/75,000 for $1,380. They also stated that prices would be going up on 1/5. Thanks to this thread I also found out that you could use your Ford Pass points towards the warranty at Flood Ford. When I bought the truck Ford gave me 42,000 Ford pass points. Those points deducted $210 off of the warranty. Anyways, I bit the bullet and got the Premium Care 8/75,000 warranty with $50 deductible for $1,170. If I end up selling the truck before the end of this warranty they will pro rate a refund or the warranty is transferable to the next owner. Just wanted to share with the forum. I feel so warm a cuddly now.

Flood lists the 7/75,000 mile warranty for $1,380. Anyway, a damn good purchase nonetheless. I made the jump a few days ago...Premium 7yr/100,000/$100 deduc. @ $1,545. Wanted to keep the cost somewhat modest while tacking on a few options.

Yep. $1,380 with the $50 deductible. That’s what I paid minus the Ford Pass points I got when I bought the truck. Took it down to $1,170. I checked the sight this morning and it appears the costs did go up like they stated they would. Looks like around a $100 increase across the board.
