1st, I would like to say greeting to everyone and sorry I had to come here asking for help or ranting.

I have a 2013 FFE with roughly 68k miles.
I ran into a Stop Safely Now code. I had for a few days before it wasn't able to clear in it's own. Towed it to Ford dealer where it sat for a month. I finally get a call that I need a new ECM with a job totaling 4k. I did buy extended warranty that claim to be bumper to bumper. I guess I was naive when I heard bumper to bumper because that to me sound like everything in the car is protected.


I obviously didn't buy a focus EV because I had huge income to spare on a car. I bought the car because I needed to find a way to squeeze the most out of my income. This is super frustrating.

Is there any other option I have from anyone with experience with this issue? I seen a few around.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

It's from a 3rd party called The Mechanics.

Yep, I NEVER recommend getting a 3rd party warranty when a factory warranty is available.

I just got a phone call from ford. Mechanics warranty will foot the bill for parts after having a letter from an attorney sent to them. Pretty sad because they must know they're in the wrong from the start. Ill end up paying 1/5 of the 5I bill which isn't so bad. I'll end up selling the focus once I get it back from dealer. I can't deal with another issue financially and will let the buyer have the remaining warranty on the car.
