    Default KRT - Powertrain Warranty Questions

    Kevin,
    You got a guy for a quote? If so, please send his contact
    You ever work with CarShield?
    I just had a telemarketer call from CarShield, was actually cheaper than I expected
    2018 F150 Lariat 4x4 5.0 Coyote Gen3 119,000 miles
    Silver plan $129 coverage starts after 50 days and 1000 miles , Silver covers powertrain, motor internals, trans, differentials, axles, transfer case, etc
    Gold plan $139 coverage starts after 25 days and 500 miles, Gold also covers powertrain plus the AC/ Alternator/ starter, etc

    Trucks running good but looking for protection against the timing chain, phasers

    yes, I like the truck, loaded , extra clean and drives like a caddy
    I want to keep it awhile and have some peace of mind
    but have you priced a 10-speed transmission or a newer Coyote engine?
    Not sure but I'm willing to bet the 10-speed transmission is $7500 -9000
    I'm sure a reman engine is $9k or more

    I would put that in a money market fund and hope for the best.

    Boy, this is a risky proposition, but I’m just dumb enough, so here goes. I sell auto service contracts. I represent a company that is on the higher end from a price standpoint, but we pay claims. Kevin is familiar with the company, and looks at our products quite favorably. Powertrain warranties are what they are. If you are very detailed with your service and keep record of them, they can have some value. I won’t sell them, because you end up with a pissed off customer when their contract doesn’t perform the way they feel it should. I agree with them. Like anything in life, you get what you pay for.

    As for car shield, I don’t feel like I really compete with them. They market direct to consumer, and my deal is more focused on getting dealers to sell our products. I have a lot of dealings with shops, and what I hear hasn’t been favorable, but again, I don’t really have dealings with them. Overall, I swore I’d never get in this business, but the company that I represent has really been the standard for quality in the industry. Car shield is right there in the heap of companies that all take their premium and look for ways to deny claims.

    You are correct about the price of transmissions and motors. It is insane what we are paying for them now. And, chances are you will need a transmission soon. That motor should be pretty solid.
    Them that don't know him won't like him, and them that do sometimes won't know how to take him

    He ain't wrong, he's just different, and his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's right

    I'd quit buying vehicles that I knew were going to fail in a large way. If I did, my thoughts would to throw a hundred bucks a month in a money market like mentioned.. rather then trusting a company that hires ridiculous people to star in their commercials. There's no way they're completely honest while marketing in that manner.

    They called you because your phone is ESPN'd to your Brain!! It knows you were thinking about a Car Warranty. That's obvious from all the accurate shit you post about Dumbo, I mean Dabzo, you know what I mean, that clown in Orange!

    I’ve dealt with about all of them. I can damn sure tell you which ones not to buy. Route 66 and Car Shield run neck and neck for the worse.

    We have a 2019 F250 in with a failed CP4 pump. 12 to 15k. I’m about to see how good one warranty company is…
    More fuel = more boost!!
