  • Get an online quote for the Toyota extended warranty from either Toyota of Littleton, MA or Midwest Toyota, Ks. Use that as a basis for negotiation.

    $2,000 seems high. If way out of line and the owner refuses to reduce his price then you should buy online. The seller can get a pro rata refund of his 'original' purchase price from Toyota which should keep him happy unless he is trying to make a profit on the transfer to you.
  • Thanks redpearl!

    I did not know you could get a pro-rated refund on the remaining warranty. I will suggest that to the seller if he refuses to budge. Right now I am thinking of offering around $800 to $1000 for the warranty.

    Some members here have suggested that out-of-state Toyota warranties are not legal in California (where I am). Do you know if this is actually true? Where might I check? I hesitate to ask a dealer because they have a vested interest in selling the warranty.
  • The only requirement is that no claims were made against the warranty. It is in the 'cancellation' clause on the contract. Contract on my 2005 Highlander also said to return to selling dealer but I called Toyota directly and returned the paperwork; received the check in less than 2 weeks. Used the refund to purchase Toyota warranty on new 2009 Sienna.

    Not aware of any ban on CA dealers accepting out of state purchased Toyota warranty. Perhaps 3rd party/independent warranty due to CA emissions.

    $1063 seems good given the $2 grand price being mentioned...
  • Thanks redpearl! Appreciate all the advice.
  • look at warrantyelite.com or warranty direct.com you can get an online quote from both. I found them at www.autowarrantyrankings.com . For the vehicle you are looking at the cost for a bumper to bumper is around $900
  • Jack, I am hoping that I won't have to shop around for a new one and the owner will accept a reasonable offer for the existing warranty. If I have to get a new one, I will check out the links you've suggested. Thanks!
  • thanks for the 2nd opionion ateixeira its appreciated.

    Didn't a few of those 3rd party warranty companies go belly up a few years back?If I was going to buy an extended warranty I think I'd stick to a manufacturers one.Toyota probably isn't going broke
  • Hi there,

    I just bought a certified 2008 Sienna. It was a pre-rental, so the mileage is almost 48K (most 2008 CPO sienna in the SF bay area are pre-rental and with similar mileage, or the price will be jacked up a few grand).

    Anyway, I was offered the Toyota extende care Platinum package (pretty much the same as original bumper to bumper coverage) until 7yr/100K for $940. I drive about 15K/year, so it will last about 3.5 years. For less than $300/year, is it worth of the peaceful mind?

    This is my first Toyota vehicle, so I don't know the repair cost of this fairly new van in the next few years. A quick research shows the common failures are power sliding door (I have one), heat relay (seems to be on older model).

    What do you folks think?

    I bought the warranty, but it's refundable within 30 days.

    Thanks.

    7yr/100K for $940

    Seems like a great price, to be honest. Especially considering you're past the factory 36k mile warranty.

    Go for it.

    Ok, I am confused. I thought that you could not get a factory extended warranty past 3 years or 36k miles. This is a Toyota warranty you got from the dealer and not aftermarket.
  • Yes, it says clearly on the contract "TOYOTA Extra Care, 84 months/100000 miles".

    I guess it's because I bought a certified used car from a Toyota dealer, which the F & I manager told me that I had 30 days to purchase the extra care package. Probably not applicable to private owner whose vehicle's orginal warraty is expired.

    Mine is a LE with EVP #1 (passenger side power slide door, power driver seat, home link, trip computer), so not a ton of bells and whistles. But like people say "they all break", being Toyota means less breaks, but not none, especially with the relatively high mileage on the van. I believe it's more of the mileage that wears the car than the year.

    I used the Edmunds True cost of ownership to estimate the repair cost of the 2008 sienna LE (8 passenger), and the 4th and 5th year cost are $384 and $447. They run the estimate based on 15000 miles/year, so mine is literally into the 4th year now :(

    Sounds like a pretty good deal I got, I think I will keep it.

    Thanks all for the input.

    Thanks for the information. That puts a new twist on buying a certified Toyota and upgrading to full coverage. I do not believe that you can upgrade a Honda certified warranty to full coverage. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Thanks
  • Just locked in a Toyota -provided extended warranty coverage for 7yrs/100K for $700 (dealership in the Pacific NW area) on a brand-new 2010 Sienna XLE (vehicle purchased 10 days back)

    That seems a great price. My 2010 Sienna XLE AWD was purchased in June and the dealer quoted me $1,395 for the 7year/100,000 mile Plantinum Toyota Care warranty. On the day of the purchase, he wouldn't go down one red cent! I read about better deals on this forum and called dealership back within a few weeks and told him I'd pay $945 (to match internet quote) and he agreed immediately. I will never pay full price again!!
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Wow!

    Dealership name, please?
  • I am planning to purchase a 08 CE Sienna with 27K miles

    The dealer has offered a extended warranty of 5yr/100K for $1,500 (not a Toyota dealer)

    Is this a good price? I like the option of putting the cost into my monthly financing but do not want to overpay for the warranty.

    Since this is not a Toyota dealer can I go to a dealership and get a quote from them also?
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Get other quotes because I've seen 7/100 for under a grand, and that's from Toyota.
  • What are people usually paying for a Toyota Extended Warranty and what are the different levels?

    Does the level change what is covered or just the length of coverage?

    Thanks
