    ESP is like all insurance, gambling. You are risking money for something that might happen and will be covered for equal or less than your plan cost. You are also gambling that your vehicle will be fully trouble free beyond your factory warranty. Companies are gambling that they never have to pay out anything but sales commissions. All my ESP purchases have been a winner for me. On my 93 Explorer XLT, it fully covered parts and labor for trans replacement beyond standard miles. On my 2005 Explorer XLT, it covered failed fuel system and intake repairs. On my 2014 Sport, it fully covered replacement of premium drivers seat and rear hatch auto lift, which were beyond standard mileage warranty. With complexities of mechanical and electrical design in these vehicles, I like being able to have the ESP. Some of my other cars in the past had a third party ESP policy which always was worthless when trying to get things fixed in a timely manner at no cost based on the policy. I stick with the manufacturers policy now.

    Don't want to pollute this thread so I'll only respond this once. I disagree with the gambling analysis, although it is technically correct from an actuarial perspective. Another way to think of it, is that you are simply buying peace of mind and that it doesn't matter if you come out ahead, either way, it is taken care of. With an ESP, you either enjoy a car with no troubles for many years, or a car with troubles that someone else pays for, either way you win. You don't buy quality health insurance and then feel like you lost the "gamble" by being healthy and not needing it. Insure yourself, your home and your car and get an ESP and sleep peaceably at night knowing that regardless of whether all goes well or not, you are taken care of. THAT is the true value of insurance.

    I do not dispute your value of insurance as peace of mind. It is why I get ESP and travel insurance. The hope is that it will be available without hassle when you need to make a claim. I have been on a couple of dark sides of plans where insurers either went out of business without notification or required extensive hassles to receive a claim. That is he reason for gambling analogy. Now I only purchase ESP through the manufacturer. Ford plans have been hassle free and more than worth the cost.

    I would never buy from other than the manufacturer...don't think I've ever heard a story of someone happy all the way through to the end with a non-OEM car warranty. Happy your experience has been hassle free, that's great news!
