I bought the extended warranty at the time of purchase (8 years/100K), having NEVER bought one before in my car-owning history. Why this time?
1) it was offered at something like 66% off ($2k vs $6K)
2) it's a first-model-year vehicle
3) my previous car (a Volvo) started to have transmission issues around 75K miles and I figured, well, $2K is less than a new transmission
Did I just throw $2K out the window? Ask me in 7 years and 10 months. :-) I keep my cars for 10+ years, so it seemed worth it in my case. Probably not so for those who lease or trade in frequently.
