A good way to think about a Ford extended service plan is to consider it insurance for your vehicle that isn't included in a factory warranty. How is it different from an extended warranty plan? Read more to learn whether a service plan or an extended warranty is right for you.

What's Included In A Service Plan?

A Ford extended service plan can help you minimize the costs to keep your car on the road. Here are some items usually included in an extended service plan:

  • 24-hour roadside assistance
  • Repairs made by trained Ford mechanics
  • Coverage is transferable if you sell the car, which increases your resale value

How Does It Differ From An Extended Warranty?

When you buy a Ford Extended Service Plan, you're buying protection for additional items not usually covered in a factory or extended warranty. You may notice that an extended service plan sounds just like a warranty. They are similar in many areas. But here are a few differences to know before you shop:

1. When Does The Plan Become Active?
A service plan usually becomes active on the date of purchase, while a lot of extended warranties start when the factory warranty expires. This means parts can be purchased under a service plan before or at the same time as a factory warranty.

2. Doesn't Require A Component To Completely Break Down
While a service plan will require typical maintenance in accordance with your original warranty, it can be used before a product completely malfunctions or fails.

3. Other Benefits
Many service plans may also cover things such as theft, water damage, and normal wear and tear.
