How long do you intend to keep this car? I did not buy the warranty with my car in 2005. I was offered the best warranty for something like 700.00 at that time. I decided I'd keep that amount in a bank account for needed reparis in the future, instead of the warranty.....and yah, keep in mind what it might actually cover for real in the future. I was also told by many that toyotas are often very reliable, and a lot of people don't purchase the warranty. Maybe if i'd bought mine used, i might have seriously considered it.

one other thing...there is no need to purchase the warranty when you buy the car, you can wait until your 3 year warranty runs out-you'd get it before it runs out...just so you know. You can also be contacting Toyota dealerships across the country to get the best price on the warranty, you don't have to buy it at the same place you bought the car....I contacted places coast to coast to get prices for a warranty quote.

The loophole to watch for in all car warranties is that breakdowns caused by a normal wear and tear malfunction is NOT covered by the warranty. For example, a radiator hose breaks and results in a loss of coolant. The vehicle overheats and you blow your engine. The radiator hose is considered normal wear and tear and the repair to the engine is likely not covered by the warranty. That's why I make sure I change the belts and hoses every 4 or 5 years or 50,000 miles whether or not I have an extended warranty.

dealer tried to pull some crap on me I think. when it came time to talk about the extended warranty he said there was some special going on where it was half price. he quoted me at $841 for 72 month/75k or $945 to get me to 84 month/75k. said that deal would expire at the end of the month. then when i was about to pull out he said "the deal could end any time"
that should have set of my BS alarm right there, but it didn't.
I never buy something the day I learn about it, so I said I would consider it. I love forums like this, so now I know these are pretty standard rates and there is no deal, the guy was straight up full of it.
there are so many aspects to buying a new car, it can be overwhelming, with these forums help I think i got through it with a pretty good deal. thanks to everyone that shares information, it really helps.

I have tayota Corolla ce 07. I put in almost 750km/week. Is it worth buying an extended warranty for 1400CAD+tax. I am already at 59000km and I was told to decide before hitting 60,000 clicks. So far I had no any issues with the car since I bought!

I live in the North East, Allentown, PA to be exact. If this travel is feasible for you I can hook you up with the dealer. They were excellent to deal with and is was probably the best car buying experience I have ever had. Post to let me know and I can give you the details.

I just called a dealer in Faulkner PA. They quoted me $800.00 each + 6% tax $848.00. I bought two corollas.
It is for the Platinum warranty 7 yrs. 100,000 miles 0 Deductible. How does that sound? Which warranty did you get that price on?

Call Thompson Toyota in Doylestown, PA. Offer them $675.00 for the Platinum Warranty, that's what they quoted me on.
