    Is it worth getting an extended warranty for Tesla model x?

    Yes, It's a very complex vehicle and it has a history of problems.

    It is just like an insurance.

    If something is cheap enough that I can afford the repairs or buying a new replacement, then I don't buy an extended warranty.

    If I can't afford the repairs or buying a new replacement, then I would buy an extended warranty.

    There's no publicly available data but it would be an irony if:

    Most likely, costly repairs won't happen to a majority of owners who bought it.

    (Tesla can't make a profit if majority of its extended warranty owners have costly repairs.)

    And most likely, costly repairs will happen to those who need an extended warranty but didn't buy it.
