I made it to 107k miles on my 09 with no need for a warranty.

The only potential covered problem I had was a failed front differential at 63k that BMW goodwill warranty repaired for me.

In all my years of high milage driving I haven't had a issue in the first 100k miles that an extended warranty would have done any bit of good....except a Chrysler that went through 4 engines under the included 7/70 power train warranty.

Most issues start happening above 100k and usually closer to 130k...but I also average 30k+ miles a year on my cars. And even those issues IMHO are just routine maintenance (water pump, alternator, clutch, shocks/struts, gaskets).

Those are my 2 cents....although when I bought my wife's vw routan minivan I did get the extended warranty....I learned my lesson before on Chrysler products...since the routan is just a rebadged Chrysler t&c.rofl.
