Has anyone opted for the Off Road Coverage, TireCare, or Triple Care? I'm not sure I see the value in any of these since today's climate leans toward rejecting claim due to fine print. I'minterested to hear opinions from those that have any of these coverage or know someone that has coverage.

I don't know the details of those coverages and the devil is in the details.

I did get extended warranty

Put your money in an account monthly and insure yourself.

I've always paid for my own damage. Theseplans seem to specific to be useful. I'm leaning toward self funding. I haven't picked up the Bronco yet so I'm just trying to answer all the questions before that day comes

Don't remember the specific details, but seemed to cover only small repairs & no replacements. Stiff like small body dings, tire plugs and windshield chips & small cracks. Basically, repairs that we typically do ourselves..

Yeah, minor dents up to 4 inches not requiring paint. Now if they covered non-specific dents it would be worth the insurance hands down

My $.02....

I got the coverage. $690 for 5 years so I'm looking at it as about $45/yr for each of the three types of coverage.
Windshield coverage; will not replace a cracked windshield but will cover chips/cracks up to 4 inches (I think) so I won't have to go through insurance unless it is spiderwebbed or badly cracked. Read about plenty of people with the chips rather than cracks in their windshields so figured I might need this at some point.
Tire coverage; main reason I got this is because it covers the wheels/trim rings as well. Get some road rash on the beauty rims and they will replace.
Dent/ding coverage; covers paintless repairs of dings/dents up to 2 inches (I think).
Had a little episode in the fall where I wound up with some acorn damage on the front hood (about 6 dimples on the hood) and had them all taken care of. Figure I'm ahead of the game on the Dent/Ding coverage already. Got 5 more years if I get more dings or if I need a new trim ring for the tire or repair a chip in the windshield.

Unfortunately, I am not one of the guys that Kenneth references as I do not typically do these types of repairs on my vehicles so thinking the coverage works for me.

Of course, YMMV !

You bring up a very good and valid point for all. It is, what value do you put on it. That's why this is a great country, we have choices.

I got the tire/wheel coverage. Because it covers any tire and wheel you put on the Bronco but you have to purchase them from the dealership. So it is less than adding road hazard at discount and I can get the same deal at the dealership than Discount so I did that for cheapish insurance. Knock on wood in 15 months and 26,000 miles I have not needed it. And we have done some pretty nasty trails. Katemcy can kill tires. Also I have the special Everglades wheels and I wanted to make sure if I needed a replacement I could get that covered.

I wonder if they would cover hail damage. That is probably my biggest concern. I've never worried about minor trail damage but I'm the first one or after a storm to see if my rig got wrecked. Hahaha! Maybe that's just me.
