Experience with aftermarket warranty providers?

Has anyone had any good or bad experience with aftermarket warranty companies? I have a 2008 G37s 5AT with 103k miles and I'm sort of worried about the oil galley gasket failure. I cannot afford to replace a VQ engine if it fails and does damage from lost oil pressure. I spoke to the folks at Endurance Warranty and they offered me a warranty that sounds very inclusive for about $3200 if you pay monthly or about $2800 if you pay cash up front. You take it to any shop you want and pay $100 deductible. They even cover up to two tire replacements per year (WHAT???) That's all. You don't even deal with the bill. They take care of the entire job. I figured if I had one major catastrophe, this warranty would pay for itself. The only catch is that there is a 60 day waiting period for the warranty to begin so they know you're not trying to start a warranty on a broken car. Thoughts, concerns?

Wow, that sounds like a lot !
For that type of "just in case the gasket goes out" money I would just put the money away and pay out of pocket if it ever goes out.
You might be able to find a local shop to do it for around the cost of insurance just in case it happens.

Pretty sure you looked into some of the EW reviews but a quick search what I see is not very good YELP

The engine isn't immediately lunched when the gasket goes as the ECU detects a low oil pressure situation, goes into limp mode and generates a couple of specific engine codes.

For a little less than the price of one year of that Endurance warranty, you can have the gasket replaced.

I think you need to find another warranty company. Most warranty company wont sell a policy for a car that already has 100k miles on it. The ones that MIGHT do it, will be VERY brief. Maybe 1 year 12000 miles or so. But for what they charging for a policy, you can buy an engine I would imagine!

Don't do it, don't be a sucker

Put the $3200 in a savings account or you could purchase 100 shares of AT&T at today's closing price of $3070.00 and collect a dividend 6.59% on August 1st of $51.00 and another $51 on November 1st and another $51 on Feb 1 2020, and another $51 on May 1st 2020 or $204.00 one year from now giving you a total of $3274.00 of AT&T plus the $3200 minus the $3070 or the $130 in cash that you had for a total of $3274 plus $130 or $3404.00 one year from now
