Seems like this thread is turning into self-promotion for other Toyota Dealerships and employees.

markuskim said:   Just bought my 2011 RAV4 warranty for $605 at www.toyotaextendedcarewarranty.com for the same 6 year 100,000 mile extended coverage. I shopped around and this was definetly the best price. Good luck all.

Thanks for this lead. I purchased an extended warranty from them for my 2012 Camry Hybrid. I started throught the process of getting a quote but didn't purchase. Received several emails from them and they kept increasing the amount of rebate they would give me on the warranty purchase. Finally bit when the rebate reached $100. (Sorry, Jerry, their price beat yours). Purchased and they issued the rebate to my credit card in just a couple of days. Yesterday I received the official extended warranty documents from Toyota.

This is my first extended warranty for a car but I'm planning on keeping this one for at least six years. At just over $700, I decided to take the gamble on an extended warranty.

I'm not familiar with this provision, but a friend of mine who always buys an extended warranty from the dealer when he purchases a car (sucker!) got credit for the unused portion of his extended warranty when he traded in an purchased another Toyota. Guess I'll have to read about that in the documents that arrived yesterday....

@ vijmas - How much did you pay for the prius warrenty.
Does it matter if the car is 3 years old and has 40K miles.

I know from first hand experience that as Toyota's have added more extensive safety features (and associated electronics), the cost to repair those items has zoomed upward, and more often than not, my local Japanese Car Care Clinic does not have the specialized equipment in order to handle those type of repairs. They can and do handle basic maintenance, brakes, change of fluids, tune-ups at a price far less expensive than what Toyota dealers charge.

I have read so many postings on various message boards such as Fat Wallet, Edmunds and the many make/model specific forums, etc. in regard to the Toyota Extended Warranty and Jerry Johnson at Midwest Toyota.

I decided to perform due diligence on my part.

I know that as a long-time and owner of several models of Toyota's that when you take the vehicle to any Toyota dealer in the United States for service and if you have had that vehicle in for service at another Toyota dealer, all of the service history for that vehicle shows up, including what work was completed, TSB's, recalls and the date. Of course, if you have had any service completed at a non-Toyota dealer or service facility, that information will not appear.

I contacted Toyota North America in Torrance, CA and they advised me that yes, Midwest Toyota is an authorized Toyota dealer that can sell the Toyota Extended Warranty for vehicles with less than 3 years and/or 36,000 miles, and you do not have to reside/live in the state of Kansas. Another tidbit of information I discovered is that Midwest Toyota sells more Toyota Extended Warranties than almost any dealer in the United States, including the big, big number one dealer in terms of new vehicle sales, Longo Toyota in El Monte, CA.
I was also provided a link for the roster of Toyota dealers in the United States, and Midwest Toyota is listed:
http://www.toyota.com/pdfs/masterdealer120611.pdf

I contacted Toyota Financial Services in Cedar Rapids, IA and they basically told me the same as what Toyota North America did, that Midwest Toyota can sell a Toyota Extended Warranty, even if you are not located in Kansas. The representative did encourage me to check with my local Toyota dealer about what options they may have available. I checked three dealers. One said they would not sell the warranty if I did not purchase the vehicle from them. The other two said they would sell me the warranty, but at the same price as what is listed as the MSRP listed at the Toyota Financial Services website. Toyota Financial could not provide a rating of Midwest Toyota in regard to the sale of the Toyota Extended Warranty, and if customers were experiencing problems at dealers when the warranty was purchased from Midwest Toyota.

I performed a cursory check for legal cases in the Lexis-Nexus database regarding Midwest Ford Superstore, Midwest Toyota Superstore and it's parent, Mid Kansas Investments and I found no cases in regard to warranty issues. A quick check at the BBB shows that Midwest Superstore has an A- rating, with three complaints, one in regard to warranty. All of the complaints have been closed by the BBB. It is worth noting that Midwest Superstore/Midwest Toyota is not a member of the BBB.
Here's a link to the BBB site with an overview of Midwest Toyota/Midwest Superstore: http://www.bbb.org/wichita/business-reviews/auto-dealers-new-car...
Another link as to how the complaints were handled: http://www.bbb.org/wichita/business-reviews/auto-dealers-new-car...

I then reviewed the Toyota Financial Services website for details about the Platinum Warranty, exclusions and MSRP. I felt comfortable that this is the warranty I would want for the RAV 4, but only at price that I believe is reasonable, and certainly not MSRP.
Here's the link I used at TFS: http://www.toyotafinancial.com/consumer/tfs.portal?_nfpb=true&_p...

I could only find two dealers that offered Internet pricing for the Toyota Extended Warranty, Acton Toyota in Littleton, MA and Midwest Toyota in Hutchinson, KS. Acton Toyota offered an 8 year/125,000 Platinum warranty, with 0 deductible for $1345, less a $50.00 discount if purchased by a certain date, while Midwest Toyota offered the same exact warranty for $1284.

Based on reviews at Fat Wallet and other web sites, and my own due diligence, I purchased the warranty from Jerry Johnson at Midwest Toyota. I provided a credit card, and shortly thereafter, received an e-mail regarding the details of the purchase. I'll check my local dealer beginning in one week, and weekly thereafter (Jerry says it takes about two weeks to appear in the Toyota system) to make sure that indeed the extended warranty is associated with my vehicle. If not, I will begin the chargeback process with the credit card company.

I can understand why many are hesitant to purchase an extended warranty from somebody you do not know, and for many, it can be a large sum of money that has to be paid all up front, with no option to finance.

As you shop for the Toyota Extended Warranty, I did notice that the discount from what Midwest Toyota offers versus the MSRP varies greatly depending on the plan chosen.
I was offered several plans, ranging from 5, 6, 7 or 8 years, with mileage allowances anywhere from 75,000, 80,000 (only one plan), 100,000 and 125,000 miles. The discounts offered by Midwest Toyota range anywhere from 33.3% to as high as 59.2% off of the MSRP, so be sure to review the options carefully before making your purchase.

TOYOTADAVE,

Are you sure that the prices quoted by Acton Toyota are the least expensive? When I compared the prices between Acton Toyota and Midwest Toyota, Midwest Toyota is the least expensive for a Platinum zero deductible warranty. Acton Toyota did send me an e-mail that they would reduce the price for the warranty by $50.00, but even with the $50.00 reduction, Acton Toyota was still higher in price than Midwest Toyota.

They way I looked at the warranty purchase transaction is that I'm never going to go to either dealer to have the vehicle serviced, whether that's Acton Toyota or Midwest Toyota, so, why shouldn't I find the least expensive warranty option for my vehicle?

Also, TOYOTADAVE, would you mind listing the price you paid for your warranty, the year and model, and whether or not you purchased the zero deductible or the $50.00 deductible option? Also, tell us how many years and what mileage option you purchased.

NRTHWST,

I called around to a couple recommended places. Scott was the only one that got back to me right away. I purchased an 8 Year/ 100,000 Platinum (NO deductible) for my Tacoma 4X4. I paid a total of $990.00 no tax. Definitely call Scott Doherty- he is a good guy & his website is very impressive also.

I fell really confused does anyone have good advice for me1) Make sure you stay on top of maintenance
2) Give up looking for a warranty, and
3) Put the money you'd planned spending on a warranty into a separate repair fund.

At this point - 120,000 miles plus you're driving 30K miles/year - it's pointless to look for a warranty. Once you're out of the factory warranty period you generally can't extend the factory warranty (and you're WAY past that) and have to get 3rd party warranties that will cost significantly more. I suspect that Toyota dealer offered you one of those 3rd party warranties that you really want to avoid for multiple reasons.

Even if you do not buy it from whatever website you happen to find the deal on, print it off and take it to your local dealer. I just picked up a 2010 FEH Ltd that was just out of warranty and wanted to get a Ford ESP due to the tech in the car. I contacted several dealerships around me and drove to one of them. Talked to the sales rep who handles ESP plans and presented him the on-line quote. He grumbled and said how he hated these guys and then beat the price I had by over $100. Probably took most of their profit away, but still got the deal. If you do not try, you do not know what the local dealerships will do for you. I got the Premium plan (over 500 items covered)for 5 years/60k miles from date of plan purchase for $1910. Something else to remember is that if you bu an ESP when the car is new the coverage starts on top of you manufacturers warranty.

The Extended Warranty is 100% worth it. You can get great deals online for them, I called a few places that were recommended online. Acton Toyota has the best site & they were really good. They are the only ones I saw that actually have an internet department set up for warranties. I worked with Scott, and he was great, very helpful & 1/2 price.

Toyota Extended Warranties 1/2 price
I just saved almost 700.00 on a Toyota Extended Warranty. This is NOT an aftermarket warranty. The dealer where I bought my car wanted list price (1350.00 for 6 year 100,000 mile coverage). At that price I declined.

What I don't think is widely known is that you can buy an extended warranty from any dealer. It does not have to be bought from the dealer that you bought your car from. There are 2 who seem to be well know on various forums and have very aggressive pricing: Midwest Toyota in Kansas
(800-530-5789) and Greenfield Toyota in Mass(413- 772-0989). I'm sure there are others.

Toyota list prices can be found here: List Prices



For my car (Rav4) the 6 year 100,000 is listed at 1350.00. I purchased mine from Midwest Toyota for 654.00. Just a heads up for anyone buying a new Toyota and interested in an extended warranty.

Drive less. Save your money on the warranty. They're not worth it. Trade your car in a year & add the 1600 to the deal.

From the date you purchased your car. For example, if you buy 5-year warranty, you are actually buying 2 more years beyond the 3 years...

I just got mine. Everything positive they say about Jerry is true. Cost was reasonable compared to my local dealer, who refused to budge in price. I decided to buy because within first three years my backup camera and my lighter failed and needed replaced. Since I have the LTD model I definitely didn't mind spending a few extra $$.
