Should we buy this warranty for our Mazda?

We are buying a 2002 Mazda Protege5! It is a cute little hatchback with 40,000 miles on it. The Carfax is clean. Should we buy the dealership's powertrain warranty?

The Toyota dealership at which we found this car offers a 2-year/24,000 mile powertrain warranty (covering mechanical problems with the engine, axle assembly, and automatic transmission) for $940.
Have you owned a Protege of this vintage, or similar Mazda? What was your maintenance experience like? Given the problems we are most likely to experience in the near future, do you think we should go for the warranty?
