Good points, and useful graph

 

But I found the (bolded) comment condescending.  Nobody appreciates being told what they "should know".  Please. 

Considering the FACT that, I wasn't talking to you in my reply........ Who cares how your little feelings, feel.

Get over yourself and learn to deal with the truth. Your feelings posts are useless and add nothing. PLEASE!

And this driver is *still* confused -- this IS covered under the original three year warranty?  Or not?

 

(Although I'm unlikely to have 37K even at four years, let alone three.  And I don't live where it's cold, natch).

 

Fuel injectors should be covered under the 3/36 B2B as I don't see it specifically excluded from coverage.  But, fuel injectors are not shown as covered under the 5/60 Powertrain warrant;y.   The 2013 and 2014 Warranty documents are attached.

Look at this page and you'll find they are covered on page #19 line 3 as fuel injection system.

Fed and CA have different coverage periods. CA starts on page # 21

Hello All,

 

Yesterday I had my second fuel injector failure since I have owned the car. I am right at 75,000 miles at this point. I am a little bummed that injector failures are so common on the C-Max. However, I am not disappointed with my purchase. This is not a ranting thread. It is merely an informational heads up for all of us....

There’s nothing wrong with being a hands-on person, Recumpence.

 

 

If you get stuck on anything, I recommend taking your C-MAX to a Ford Dealer to get diagnosed, and contact me as well.

 

Please keep me posted!  :) 

 



If I have the extended warranty to 125,000 miles, is this the kind of thing that is included?



All warranty coverage varies based on what coverage you buy...


 It all depends on the warranty purchased...



Fuel injectors should be covered under the 3/36 B2B as I don't see it specifically excluded from coverage.  But, fuel injectors are not shown as covered under the 5/60 Powertrain warrant;y.   The 2013 and 2014 Warranty documents are attached.

Hey guys,

 

I agree with Bugblndr and drdiesel1. It depends on what plan you’ve elected. I recommend checking out the ESP website here . You can also speak directly with an ESP rep at 877-794-6434. Hours of operation: 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. EST. They are in the best position to answer your inquiries, and go over what’s covered under your specific plan.

 

If anyone is having a concern with their vehicle, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll be happy to look into my resources on this end.

 

Have a great weekend!  :) 

 

Tricia

Like the (admirably restrained) Plus 3 Golfer last week, I'm not prepared to get into a juvenile spitting match with you.  Keep on insulting people and you'll get kicked off the forum a second time.

You seem to be the only one insulted and I wasn't even talking/replying to you. You have problems

and I'm not the source of them. Sorry!

^^^^ That's okay if you think that  :victory:  Maybe it would be best if my posts were ignored by those that feel that way.

Especially the input that's not directed towards you or didn't take you into account when it was posted :hat_tip:

I am currently watching "Big Bang Theory" and drdiesel1 reminds me much of Sheldon.
It also reminds me why behavior like they display on sit coms really doesn't work in the real world. It is neither funny nor endearing.

MBR has been proven wrong.  If drdiesel1 were like Sheldon, then his witty reply would have ended with "Bazinga!"

WELLLLLLLLLL! Considering they offer multiple coverage levels, it's not a simple yes or no.

You need to READ the policy to know whats covered. Sorry if you don't like my reply, but

it's to the point and most people need sugar with the truth. I don't carry any, so you'll need

to find your own. I'm an insurance inspector for failure analysis. Some companies offer 8

different coverage levels and it's a common practice for the dealer to over charge for the base

policy that isn't worth the paper it's printed on. Feel better now?

 

 

2 injectors isn't EVERYTHING.  Dude, you need to get a grip.

 

 

Considering the FACT that, I wasn't talking to you in my reply........ Who cares how your little feelings, feel.

Get over yourself and learn to deal with the truth. Your feelings posts are useless and add nothing. PLEASE!

 

Thats enough, DrDiesel has been banned. He was banned prior for bad behavior, was allowed back but now hes back to his ole condescending posting ways. Adios.

 

Carry on, nothing to see here except a bad apple getting tossed out.

attachicon.gif13hybwa2e.pdfattachicon.gif14hybwa1e.pdf

That's strange because the 5/60 covers the fuel pump, which is clearly not a part of the engine. It says it covers the "injection pump." Is there a high pressure fuel pump mounted on the engine that ups the pressure from the fuel pump in the tank? Maybe by injection pump they mean fuel injector. Super strange that a part that is clearly part of the engine is not covered, but a part that is clearly not part of the engine is covered.
