It does not take a lot to research cost of ownership, you are welcome to do so. Higher tech cars cost more to fix.
Also, any 1 particular situation is never indicative of statistics as a whole. Your situation may mirror dozens of others on this board, but that does not mean that its the average scenario.
Personally, I would chuck out the $2-3k for the 6 year extended warranty once the 4 year is almost run out. My wife just spent $2000 on her 8 year old Prius, getting a water pump, new (starting ) battery, and new LCD screen/computer. And thats a Toyota.
