I'm sure a dealership will gladly sell you an extended warranty, but I wouldn't worry so much about it. Drive the car like a manual. That's what it is, after all. Driving it like a regular old automatic (creeping in traffic without your foot on the gas) is hard on this transmission, so don't do it. Deliberate acceleration and deceleration are best.
