My Mercedes-Benz SLK has had various faults recently - should I extend the warranty?

I have a four year old Mercedes-Benz SLK with 19,700 miles on the clock. I've owned it for a year and it has been covered by a warranty, which has now just expired. So far, it has had a new RPM sensor, NOx sensor, heater box (involving removing the dashboard) and aerial (which involved a new windscreen). These faults have all occurred within the last two months. I'm very disappointed that these faults occurred in a marque I'd perceived to be of high quality. Have you heard of similar issues in a car of this age and is it worth taking out another warranty or have most of the major things likely to have gone wrong already happened?

Yes, I'd take out more warranty either with MotorEasy or with WarrantyWise. But they will only give you a restricted warranty for the first three months in case there is an existing problem. You can't insure a house against fire if it's already burning.
