Extended warranty worth it?

Is it worth it to spend the extra 1,000+? I'm thinking of trading it in maybe in 4 years (2013 prem v6 conv ) for a gt prem or f150 but my warranty just ended this week. I'm thinking of getting new shoes for her and just setting aside money incase of repairs etc. What would you guys do?

I didn't purchase an extended warranty for mine.

You should look into what the extended warranty covers, mods you want, is your car a daily driver, etc. I purchased the extended warranty and thought about dropping it until I gave it another thought. I daily drive my 2014 Mustang and my factory warranty will expire in 2 years due to the mileage. I also wanted the peace of mind since I don't plan on selling/trading. Setting aside cash for emergencies is a very good idea too though.

I was raised on steady doses of never ever paying for a warranty. Then of course I got married and bought a car with her. She insisted on the extended warranty ( could have been she knew a dodge is a pos.) and I was happy she made me get it. New gas tank, two full front suspension swaps, leaking sun roof, and several other items which I have forgotten about. It paid itself off after one issue.

Yep, definitely worth it. I have a 2007 F150 and had to have the A/C recirc door replaced @ 70,000 miles. They had to pull out the whole dash and steering wheel just to replace the recirc door. That right there paid for the extended warranty that I had purchased when I bought the truck new.
