    Did anyone extend their cars' warranty?

    Hi, i just wanted to ask if anyone extended their 3 year warranty on their Vauxhall.
    The three year warranty on my car runs out this month, and was considering of extending it.
    The reason being that last year i had a few problems with my car and was glad that they were able to be repaired under warranty or it could have cost me a bit of money. The EGR valve was replaced, a gasket and the catalyic convertor had to be replaced aswell.

    How much does it roughly cost to extend it?
    Is it worth paying that much to extend it?

    I just want to have piece of mind that if anything happens to my car again i can get the dealer to sort it out.

    What do you think?

    £200 a year, sounds a bit high. Do they give a discount if you take it for 3years? or charge you £600?

    £200 a year for peace of mind? I know I wouldnt have any problem paying that if I was keeping the car relatively standard, lol
