I've never brought extended warranties and declined when my car went out of warranty in Jan of '12. A 2 year 100k mi extension was quoted to me at about $2,400. So far I've spent $1,200 on eccentric shaft sensor and with about 3 months to go until the extended would have expired I was feeling pretty good about my decision. Last week I had the car checked and they found worn belt tensioner $330, currently a very minor oil pan gasket leak$1300 and a headlight assembly replacement to fix a turn signal issue, $800, so quickly I find myself on the other side of the statistics. Had these issues revealed themselves in just a few months, after the warranty expired, I would've overpaid by taking the warranty and then in addition face the cost of repairs, so it's really a luck of the draw.
