Yes, a breakdown in electrical components can happen to any Electronic Item. The costs are pretty low of taking an extended warranty and the spare parts are quiet expensive of car. Its worth, as in will do a job more like insurance but against any Manufacturing defect or Failure of Electronic Item or Part of car during regular usage !!

Thank you for the details
What about the period after 5 years when extended warranty expired?? How can i buy extra warranty to cover mentioned parts in tata nexon. I mean if no warranty after 5 years of buying then i will have to bear the cost of any engines issue or other components so how can I find a lifetime solution for this
