To warranty or not to warranty?

...that is the question.

We're going to buy (approximately) a 2005-6 Espace Initiale 3.0 cDi Auto for around 5k privately. Probably around 50,000 miles.

Currently we have a Volvo XC70, and pay Warranty Direct around 330/yr for a full warranty. On a car now worth 7k that feels about right.

But when I priced a Renault warranty through them they wanted nearly 800/yr

I *assume* is is the fabled Renault reliability going into the mix. My question is - on a 5k car should we pocket it and pay out for repairs if they ar needed?

All thoughts welcome.
