Hi. My first reaction was to not reply. Since nobody else did, here goes...
Yes, any Toyota Dealer can sell them. That's your best bet, but other responses may be better advice, so hope you get some more.
In the Seattle area we just had a TV news story 'Consumer Beware' type, about the cards you get in the mail about Extended Warranties. They pretty much said Run, don't walk, away from them.
My personal opinion, for what it's worth, is pretty negative. If you are going to get one, get it from a Toyota dealership only. If you drive less than 30,000 miles a year, why bother? The reason to buy a Toyota is because you do not need an extended warranty. That is speaking for Me, not telling anyone else what to do. Last time in the finance office they didn't even bother with me, except to try to sell me prepaid oil changes, lumped along with I think the 5, 10, and 15,000 mile service for some $$$ amount. I always turn everything down. Toyota must keep notes. Every new purchase, they try less and less with me. My 2001 Camry had 60,000 miles on it when I sold it to my Sister (gave away, actually..)
My 2001 Tacoma, little dinky base model, manual tranny, two speakers, etc., had 78,000
2005 Tacoma reg cab, 4 cyl auto tranny, base model, 4,000 miles
and 2005 Tacoma extra cab SR5 4cyl auto tranny had 49,000 miles.
All I had to do except oil change, air filter, was Tires, and took the '01 Camry in for an annoying glove box rattle. The only real work was a Toyota dealership found during an oil change that both rear shocks on the little '01 Tacoma were leaking. That was at 35,750 miles. I went to the dealership where I bought it, and they replaced them for free, under the 36,000 warranty. That's it!!
I have a 2006 Sienna now, with 23,500 miles. Nothing but oil changes. One air filter which they didn't want to put on, but I insisted. No Brake jobs on Any of the vehicles. I did change the spark plugs on the Camry (super easy!) and drain/refill the coolant on the '01 Tacoma. Also easy!
Warranties are for Mercedes, Rolls Royce, etc... in my negative opinion!

Where are you getting your numbers? Edmunds says the XLE package one has an Invoice of $527 and a MSRP of $585, not $2070. The MSRP of a XLE FWD with package one is $30,795, not $34,000. Try starting at the link below and follow it through.

Some inventory sheet the dealer printed out for me 'said so'. I decided to stop dealing with that dealer because I felt they were not straight forward with me.
#7963 of 12250 Picked up XLE Limited yesterday
Nov 18, 2007 (6:46 am)
Finally got the deal I was wishing for from the dealer. I had the '04 VW Touareg to trade-in and no one was willing to give me what I thought it was worth. Anyway, the dealer in Naperville, IL gave me the most value for the trade-in, $2100 over Carmax!
Here is the breakdown of my Salsa Red XLE Limited - $36,067.00 plus tax, title, lic, CRV, and doc fee.
XLE Limited w/ options FE-emissions, GV-XLE Limited base model comb, HZ-Laser Cruise/HID headlamps, QL-XLE package #2, RM-daytime running lamps, TH-power third row seat, and CF-floor mats.
#7964 of 12250 Limted AWD EVP 2 and HID/Laser in Bay Area
Nov 18, 2007 (8:16 pm)
In the SF Bay Area, paid $250 over invoice for a located Limited AWD with EVP #2 and HID/Laser + Towing and mats (and pearlescent paint).
Called fleet managers around the Bay Area, and the best bottom-line deal I could find over the phone was at Capitol Toyota for $250 over invoice. All other dealers were $500-600 over. I called Toyota 101 in Redwood City and had them match the $250 over, but locate the specific car from another dealer. Within 2 days we had it. Painless! They made plenty of money, too.

The Edmunds invoice does not include local advertising, which if I recall correctly is about $700 (I don't have my numbers in front of me). However, the dealer's invoice printout will have this all itemized. Good luck!
