How often has someones Ford Warranty helped them out?

It seems Everyone on here is scarred of voiding their warranties so I'm just wondering how many times their warranty had helped you all out? Owned 2 different mustang an 03 and a 10 and the warranties only come in handy once for a new car battery a few months ago. Just wondering what it's helped you all on?

Had my stang since Oct 11, warranty work was requested to fix driver's side rear rotor (either pad deposits or warped)... They blamed aftermarket 20's for the problem... Ok. They replaced the pad under warranty... So problem never went away.

So since then, got a tune, CAI, etc... Supercharger in the next 6 months.

Fahhhgetaboutit.

Yea I'm about to tune in two weeks when I get my next paycheck cause I doubt I'll ever use it again. In my old stang I had an exhaust leak, alternator died, tire blowout and it covered none of it apparently

ive never used an extended warranty (had it the entire 3 years) but as far as the factory warranty I have used it here and there.

Factory warranty has been helpful a few times over the years. Never had a drivetrain issue, but other little things were covered.

Re: How often has someones Ford Warranty helped them out?

The warranty has helped me once so far. I had to replace the driver side seat belt because the plastic part of it had somehow snapped perfectly in half. Now if only there was a solution to keep the seat belt from sawing my neck while I have it on. Dunno if my height has anything to do with this annoyance :/

Re: How often has someones Ford Warranty helped them out?

I've used mine quite a few times. drivers seat motor replaced, passenger rear shock replaced (before lowering), passenger side light up door sill replaced, rear defroster replaced, some issue that was causing the a/c to not blow on the floor (I've always heard it called a blend door motor, but they called it something else so I don't even know if it's the same thing or not), I think that about covers it
