#1402 of 2055 Just bought a 2006 4Runner SR5 V8
Sep 30, 2006 (9:11 pm)
Hi All I just bought a 2006 4Runner SR5 V8 with
3rd row seat
Roll sensor and airbags
Price before taxes and lic was 31663.
However i think I got totally screwed on the Extended Warranties. I ended up paying 2800 dollars for the 7 year/100,000 mile extended warranty platinum. This included 55000 miles of paid service as well.
I really don't know how much people are paying for this. Please post what you ended up paying for the Toyota Platinum extended warranty and paid maintenance. Thanks
Also I just got the vehicle today and have to go back tommorrow to finish up the trade in. IS there any recourse for me in California?
#1403 of 2055 Toyota buying in Austin
Oct 01, 2006 (9:45 am)
I bought a car from Charles Maund in Austin TX a few years ago. The experience was fine. This time, the sales wanted to have my credit card before sales was willing to submit my offer to the sales manager.
I do remember sales using this technique in the 80's- usually asked for a check of a small amount, but have not encountered it for the last 4-5 new cars I bought.
I ended up buying a car from Classic Toyota north of Austin. This dealership seems to be more straight, and they do not need my credit card to consider an offer.

I've owned two 4Runners,and both gave me well over 300,000 miles of excellent service w/o any major problems. Scrap the extended warranty. Just tell them you've changed your mind and you want to cancel it. Period.

Yup did just that went back and cancelled the extended warranty and the prepaid maintenance that they had bundled in that 2800 price.
If need be I will just pick up an extended warranty from Toyota before 36K or 3 years.
Do I have to take the 4Runner in to a toyota dealer and follow the maintenance schedule to get the extended warranty down the road?
BTW thanks for the help everyone!!
#1406 of 2055 What is a good price?
Oct 02, 2006 (9:30 am)
One place I found that shows what a good price for a Toyota is is www.fitzmall.com
From my own shopping experience and from reading this forum, I'd say you have a good offer if it is comparable to what fitzmall offers. Remember to compare your local incentive vs the incentive from where fitzmall is (usually Maryland for Toyota cars), and take that difference into consideration. Edmunds.com does seem to keep the incentives updated and accurate as far as I can tell.
No disrespect to Edmunds.com, but I always found the TMV prices from the Edmunds website to be 1-2K higher than the real world prices, when we consider a ~30K car.
