Didn’t realize our great state (eye roll) decided to pass a law to not allow out of state dealer ESPs. Anyone have a lead on a reasonable dealer priced ESP? Was trying to buy one ASAP as I’m at 31,500 miles…

Another one of those helpful state pieces of legislation that doesn't actually help the citizens. But rather helps protect the insurance industry from competition.
It's just so needless

I heard it suggested to purchase using an out of state address?
Ford certainly doesn't care and the policy is assigned to your VIN in Oasis.

I imagine that right out of the box the legislation has a few holes in it. How can they enforce? And how can they stop Ford dealerships from repairing your vehicle?

hmm, I see what you’re saying. I thought I read someone on a 21+FB group that a CA dealer refused to recognize his warranty because it was purchased out of state but I was mistaken when I just re-read it. Hopefully someone in this giant state will start returning the favor from past practices. I can only imagine their dealer would be getting a ton more traffic…

I'm amazed that a Ford dealership would turn down an ESP warranty job.

Actually, the FL law doesn't prohibit ESP sales to their residents by out-of-state vendors. What it does is require that any vendor selling the product in FL be licensed with the FL regulatory agency (and thereby enrich FL with licensing fees and generate a lot of paperwork).

Out of state vendors could play that game and sell to FL residents, but obviously most don't find that proposition attractive.

it didn’t actually happen, that’s what I thought I read but I was wrong. I haven’t read the actual law though to see the ins and outs

or
pm one of us in texas and use our address as TRUCK location when purchased said warranty
ford dealers don't care who sold it or where you bought it
and zeigler or granger or koons jsut needs an address to record sale.. easy as falling off a log
it just comes up as YOU GOT AN ESP

Well… we could technically go down the interstate commerce rabbit hole, but there are much better ways to spend a Friday night.

Don't put koons in the same boat for ESP pricing. They were twice the price of Zeigler for the exact same coverage. I had to get a refund.
