I thought VW's new car warranties were 4/50, but it's been years since I bought a new car, so I could be wrong. That was a 2007 Passat. At the time of purchase, I did extend it out to 100K, but it cost me somewhere between $1500-$2000 to do it. I suspect other warranty providers would charge similar amounts, and with that said, I'm a gambler and never buy extended warranties anymore. Anything covered that goes wrong is likely to cost less out-of-pocket than the price of the extended warranty, IMO. For example, on the Passat, I did have an A/C compressor go out at 54K, and I paid a $100 deductible on what would have been an $800 repair on me, but the $700 net savings was still less than half the cost of extending the warranty in the first place.
