Default SC 430 Extended Warranty?

I purchased a 2006, one owner, well maintained SC430 with 68,000 miles. I am considering an extended warranty but at $3,900 and the fact that I will not drive more than 5K to 7K miles per year I question if it is really necessary or worth it. The only problems that I currently have are volume control on steering column doesn't work and there is a some noise when I open and close the navigation system. What else typically goes wrong with an SC430 at 70+K miles. Thank you.

I have a 2004 SC430 with more than 215k miles with absolutely no issues. If you did a thorough inspection before you purchased the car, I would not waste $3900.

Thanks for your insights and recommendations. It is thumbs down on the extended warranty.

I got one when I bought my 2007 in 2010. It was CPO and I got a 3 year extended warranty. It is in the shop right now having both outside mirrors replaced and it isn't costing me a thing. Ive had a coupe of other repairs, all covered. Mine cost $900 when I bought my car. For me, it was well worth the effort and cost. My warranty runs until September 2016 or 100K. I currently have 38K on the odo.
