      Thanks Peter! Talked with Joel and looks like a grand savings over my dealer and 400 less than USAA. Making it happen Monday!

      blwnsmoke is the one who 'introduced' Joel to the Forum and has recommended him many times. Several members have purchased their ESP from Joel. I doubt there is any wiggle room as his prices I believe are $100 over cost. A very reasonable number.

      I've been referring people to Joel for 8 years (stumbled upon him in 2009). He will not go any lower then $100 over cost which is what he quotes all forum members that go his way. There is a reason why I try to get people to buy from him which has been posted in this thread many times so I won't keep repeating myself. There are so many people who have purchased from him now that he is one of the top internet sales ESP dealers in the country. So many in fact that all the other online discounted sites have now started matching all his prices because of all the business he has got lol. I believe he has sold to all 49 states (not Hawaii as of now).

      The only thing Joel will do for forum members where other online dealers won't is waive the finance charge if you want to finance it at 0% for 18 or 24 months. There is a 1 time fee associated with that but he eats it which basically he breaks even at that point.

      Hi All! Time for a dumb question. I am reading the Ford ESP brochure and it has the following language for used vehicles: "Eligible Ford vehicles that have new vehicle limited warranty remaining at the time of purchase - coverage begins at the signature date and current mileage/hours. Coverage ends at the earlier of the number of months purchased or the number of miles/hours purchased from the expiration of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty". What does this mean? I was under the impression that the ESP started when the vehicle was put in service but this makes it sound like it starts when you purchase the ESP? What is the "signature date"? Thanks

      I would interpret that to mean that when buying a 'used' vehicle with some of the 3 year, 36k mile warranty remaining, the ESP that you purchase begins on the date that you buy and sign the ESP document and it expires at the end of whatever term you buy. If you were the original owner of a vehicle and wanted to buy an ESP while there was still some of the factory warranty on it, then the ESP starts on the original 'In Service' date.

      So wouldn't that be penalizing the original owner? BY having theirs start from when they bought it but if I bought one for my used EX it would be from the date I bought it? Guess I will be asking some questions before the purchase..... Thanks Peter

      Yes, to some degree I agree but that is the way Ford works. Not all manufacturers follow the same procedure. The thing that it does provide the original owner is same day rental coverage if they include that in the ESP. The factory warranty does not cover rentals or loaners.

      All ESPs start from the original purchase/in service date of the vehicle. The only time this doesn't happen is when the vehicle is outside the 3yr/36k. Then you are buying a used vehicle ESP and they are purchased in 12k/12month intervals and begin 30 days after the time of purchase of the ESP.

      To add, if it is a CPO vehicle, you can buy longer used vehicle coverage then if it is just a used vehicle. I believe if memory serves me, instead of the 8 years max on a new vehicle, you can get up to 11.

      Thanks blwnsmoke! I emailed Joel and got some quotes. Now I just have to decide and figure out how to pay for it!

      Hi All! I have been doing some research and thought I would share my results. "phareous" did the work the last time else where in this thread but it was in May of 2012 so I thought it might help those looking if I added some current numbers....

      I searched the following dealers for pricing:
      Anderson and Koch (A)
      Flood Ford (F)
      Lumbard Ford (L)
      Zeigler (Z)
      Two Rivers (T)
      Ford Protect (FP)
      Troy Ford (I couldn't find a place to enter explorer so no info from them)

      My numbers include only lighting. No rental or key coverage. I believe all are minus taxes as well. I haven't gotten that far into an actual purchase but I anticipate having taxes tacked on to these numbers. If I find out otherwise, I will let you know. I also found out in my case, I am still under the 3yr/36k warranty so the ESP will begin when it was put in service and not the day I pay for the ESP.

      Here we go....

      6yr/125k/100: (A) $1765 (F) $1765 (L) $2124 (Z) $1965 (T) $1895
      6yr/125k/50: (A) $1960 (F) $1960 (L) $2319 (Z) $2160 (T) $2090

      7yr/125k/100: (A) $2065 (F) $2065 (L) $2424 (Z) $2265 (T) $2205 (FP) ???
      7yr/125k/50: (A) $2260 (F) $2260 (L) $2619 (Z) $2460 (T) $2400 (FP) ???

      Also got a price from Champion Ford for 6yr/125k/100 for $1635 but not sure it includes lights.
      Ford Protect was at $3875+taxes ($219.30) for an 8 year 125k/100.

      Questions I have yet to ask Joel with Twin Rivers are: Does his price include the key and rental? And taxes?
      I emailed him so my experience with him has been different. The above numbers were just based on website quotes.

      The prices seem to be all over the board. Not a lot of consistency but in reading through many post here it looks like a lot of people have had good experiences with Joel so that is more than likely the way I will head.

      I will also mention they have a finance option if people need to go that route.

      Have a good day! Hope this helps!

      As far as I know, Joel's ESP includes 1st day rental while most others do not. They offer it as an option. blwnsmoke can confirm that.
