Extended warranties can be tricky. You are gambling on the company paying for your repair if needed. It does provide some peace of mind, Carefully check the areas covered and how well established the company is. Some companies declare bankruptcy and leave policy holder holding worthless paper.

I don't get them personally, but since your vehicle is on the more expensive end, I'd see if you can get the dealership to pay for it upon purchase. If not, then you might consider passing on it. Put that money aside in a bank account and use it when you have some repairs.
