DO get the extended warranty. You can easily spend $15,000 on relatively minor repairs on a modern diesel engine.

DO make sure you have receipts and proof of regular scheduled maintenance. They check that stuff when you bring your truck in with $15,000 worth of fuel system damage, and will deny your claim if you can't prove the truck was properly maintained. I'm reading first-hand horror stories about this right now on an RV site and a Ford diesel site.

Your fuel economy will go up as you rack on the miles and the engine breaks in. Hand calculate your mileage; the computer lies. 10-11 is about what people are getting towing large 5th wheels.

I would recommend Ford Diesel Care for the engine Premium Care for anything Ford if you want extended coverage, or GMPP on a GM vehicle. My personal opinion is nearly all of the aftermarket service contracts (they are not a warranty) are a ripoff. If you want extended coverage that doesn't have fine print that basically says "Only covered on Tuesday while a black cat is crossing your path during a hail storm of golf balls", only buy coverage from the vehicle manufacturer.

I agree and would add to only buy a Chrysler service contract for your Chrysler. I have seen some aftermarket warranty companies weasel out of repairs hooking the customer for large repair bills. At dealership rates that can add up in a hurry.

Yep, it's not just on Chrysler vehicles. The general manager of my dealership has a buddy with an 06 F350/6.0L. When the factory warranty ran out, he bought an aftermarket service contract on the engine. He was running a power programmer and eventually had leaking head gaskets. The aftermarket contract had a clause that only "oil lubricated parts" were covered...
