Buying used 09 TDI w/59K miles should i get extended warranty?

Hey,

I have owned 2 touaregs in the past, an 07 v6 and 2010 TDI. I sold the TDI when my wife wanted a bigger SUV, 3 years later, the SUV is now my car (LR3) and i dont like it. I am looking to buy a used 09 TDI Touareg from a local VW dealer but i am unsure if I should buy the extended warranty. The rig has 59K miles and the 4/48K mile warranty (platinum) is nearlly 3K. is it worth it or should i go without?

Yes but only from Chris Farnham. Some have complained about loop holes from ones they bought from dealers.

Yes. One repair can pay for itself.

And if you decide to sell the vehicle before the warranty is up, you can either cash it in for the prorated value and get some money back (if you are trading to a dealer), or offer it along with the sale of the vehicle as a "selling point" if you are selling it yourself.
