Extended Warranty Purchase?

Who has purchased an extended warranty? Is it worth it? I'm thinking about going with a hybrid right away for this new 4Runner. It's awesome that Toyota says that hybrid-related components are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first from the original date of first use when sold as new. The hybrid battery is also covered for 10 years/150,000 miles, whichever comes first, and is transferable across ownership. Do you plan to purchase additional? If so, who has the best options?

5-10 years ago I would have said no. However with as much computer components that these new cars come with I feel you almost have to. Touch screens, digital dashes, all the safety stuff.
 
It's going to heavily depend on how user serviceable it is. I've already bought and sold newer vehicles with all these electronics and locked down computer systems. Time will tell where the 6th gen falls and how Toyota goes about things. That being said, I did get an extended warranty on my 5th gen.
 
Be careful with extended warranties and read the fine print. Surprisingly, some warranties exclude nuts, bolts, gaskets, etc. it’s their way of recouping some money.
