The Ford-150 receives a 5-star rating from Car and Driver and was listed as a 2016-2017 Editors’ Choice Award winner for Best Pickup Truck. It’s historically been synonymous with rugged durability and reliability throughout the decades.
The truck comes with the basic Ford manufacturer warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles or drivers can choose the 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. But what happens when the warranty expires? The driver is then wholly responsible for paying for repair expenses. A lapse in coverage can mean exorbitant costs at unexpected times, a less than ideal situation.
Repairs to the F-150 can easily tally hundreds of dollars, even with just one part requiring repair. For example, a fuel pump replacement can range anywhere from $350 to $1,300*. Replacements such as this can’t be delayed and can lead to a financial setback for anyone unprepared for the cost.
It’s inevitable, the longer you own a vehicle, the more likely a repair will be necessary. A vehicle service contract extends repair coverage for when you need it. Rather than dealing with the stress of towing cost or rental car expenses, coverage under a vehicle service contract includes these benefits.
Gain peace of mind knowing you have a plan in place for when your vehicle requires repair. Find out what kind of coverage is available and customize a plan to best fit your needs. Vehicle service contract eligibility is based upon the make, model, year, and mileage of your car.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
