Compare the list of their scheduled maintenace and included items to the schedule in the owners manual. Most of the time these prepaid maintenance plan may include a lot of items that may be a good ideal, but are not specifically recommended by the manufacturer. Yes, you do need to have the oil & filter changed on a regular schedule but using a $40 per change cost, that works out to maybe $400. Now find out the other services required by the manufacturer and also the cost of the Extended Warranty.
So, if the extended warranty cost $2000 for example and the oil changes are $400, the total is $2400. So, you need to find out if the remaining required items are worth $1600 (assuming $4000 cost.)

I believe they charge $100 per oil change visit. The first
oil change is on the house.

I think you got a great price on the car. Would you mind sharing what dealer or online program you used?
#12 of 46 Extended Warranty for a Lexus Hybrid SUV

My Good buddy is going to buy a brand new 400 series Lexus Hybrid SUV in Northern California. He wants an extended warranty. When I have bought mine in the past I have always gone to Edmunds first and have always found some dealership many states away that I can get a better deal with. Any suggestions on which way to lead him? Thanks!

Hi guys, just wanted an opinion from some of you experienced owners..
I just bought a 2008 RX350 today.
What do you think about the extended warranty plan? 7 yr/75000 miles or 7 yr/100000 miles? Is it worth it? How much are lexus repairs beyond the 4 year mark? I know it's too early to tell but those of you with the 300's.. I just made my down payment, and have a chance to buy one of these options (such as the simonize thing and other stuff) before my final deal is done (i'm already committed...paid a significant deposit already).
thanks in advance for your opinions.

Hi Solar 2000 Ė Interesting post you put up. Let me say this. I just purchased a 08 RX350 AND the 7 year 100,000 mile warranty. Had the car for about a week and talked to a buddy of mine that works for Honda. He said why are you buying the warranty now?? You already have a 4/50000 mile warranty. Wait until just before your original warranty is due to expire and then buy if you still have the car. If you are financing the car think of the interest you are paying on the warranty alone! No, bad idea.
So I went back to dealer and although they had processed my contract they agreed to pull out the warranty and all is well. Good Luck and Happy Driving!
And by the way, once your original warranty has expired the costs in repairs etc are prohibitive, and I highly recommend buying your extended warranty at that time. Just donít let your original warranty expire before you buy the extended warranty. Also, it will give you a much better picture of how many miles you drive per year, and in that way you can calculate how long an extended warranty you should buy. Donít buy any of the other stuff like simonize etc. Itís a big rip off.

My factory warranty is about to come up on my 2005 RX 330 and I have been debating if I should purchase an extended warranty. I have recieved a qoute for $2350 for 7yrs/100,000 miles from my local Lexus dealership. Can anyone let me know if this is a good price or what amount has been paid for this warranty. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I need to make my decision fairly quickly!

If it is a Lexus warranty sounds like a fair deal. I purchased a 100,000 mile extended warranty from "First Automotive" for $2,061 when I purchased a 2005 RX330 which had 43,000 miles on it.
I have not yet used the warranty so can't comment on it but if all coverages were equal , I would rather have Lexus warranty for the $300 additional.

You can get the extended warranty from other Lexus dealers.
I found some contact info on another Lexus forum for dealers and quotes they gave were about $500 less than the listed price on the Lexus site.
The quotes I requested were for platinum warranty for either 7yr/75k or 7yr/100k.
Didn't buy it because I extended my lease, but will definitely buy the warranty if I eventually decide to buy my 2007 RX350.
Not sure if it's ok to include in this post, but the forum where I found other dealer info for cheap extended warranty was Club Lexus.
