Well, apparently some of the posts have been removed by the Host because they had too much information on them (phone numbers), so some of the ones that had prices are no longer available.
I already bought my warranty from Midwest Toyota for my new 2008 Camry Hybrid, and I got the Platinum 7/75, 0% ded. for $619. I would have purchased the 7/100 for $964, but I only drive about 10K a year, so I didn't need the extra miles.
I hope that helps some.
#151 of 210 Toyota Autocare Prepaid Maintenance
Jun 06, 2008 (11:55 pm)
Has anyone bought a prepaid maintenance plan? I did here is the info on what I received in the mail.
1. The Camry hybrid does not require much - oil change and tire rotation - lube of key chassis parts ( not sure what that means ) 19 point inspection - 11 times / every 5000 miles
2. At 15K and 45K clean cabin air filter
3. At 30K replace cabin air filter, engine air filter,
inspect ball joints, brakes lines hoses etc. note inspect, says nothing about
Seems like they do a bunch of inspections.
For $1100, or $100 per visit.
Is this a so so deal even at SF Bay Area prices?

I don't know about SF Bay Area prices, but $1100 is a lot to pay for the prepaid maintenance program. MIdwest Toyota sells it for hundreds less than that! I forget what the price was because I decided against it after figuring out what it would cover and finding that it was no bargain. In fact, the salesman at Midwest actually told me it wasn't worth it, and he had nothing to gain by giving up the sale!

In the Bay Area, I doubt you'll be able to average less than $100 per visit for the service they're giving. But of course you're prepaying, so that changes the calculation.
I would question one item. Toyota calls for a cleaning the cabin air filter at 15K, replacement at 30K. After 15K your cabin air filter will need replacement, not cleaning. It will be dirty and it doesn't clean well, either. In any case, the filter is easily changed by the owner in a few minutes.

The only dealer I've read about on this message board is Midwest Toyota of Hutchinson Kansas. Is there a dealer in San Francisco Bay Area (Berkeley) willing to discount warranties?

Maybe, if you go in to a dealer in the SF Bay area with quotes from a dealer like Midwest Toyota, but my local dealer in Sacramento said he couldn't come close to the price I got from Midwest.
If you can't get a dealer near you to discount it, it is really easy to call Midwest's 800 number and buy it over the phone. I received a receipt from them 3 days after I called them, and the policy came in the mail from Toyota Financial less than 2 weeks later.
