Question: Dealer is installing a new engine - What to lookout for?

My 2007 Chevolet Impala LT 3.5L engine was "missing" antifreeze for a few months until the engine started missing. It is covered with the 100,000/5Year power train warranty.

Should I get an extended warranty?
There is a one year warranty on the new engine.
Thanks for your consideration.
