Good for you! As I had indicated, you MUST shop for a good price on these warranties. My careless neighbor spent $2500 for a Gold level warranty on a Camry 7/75k. I had told him to return it and shop but he ignored my advice. Now he is kicking his own rear-end for his foolish ways.

Is that Marietta GA. If so welcome neighbor.I am talking to a man in Kansas. I am thinking about buying an extended warranty from him. So your warranty is alright, no problems? Any additional information will help. Thanks,

I need to purchase a Toyota backed extended warranty for my new Avalon. What Toyota dealer is giving the best deal. My dealer wanted too much money for an extended warranty.

Dennis, just review the posts in this topic for the past 2-3 months for your answer. There are several dealerships out there who are giving very good prices on extended warranties. The Midwest Toyota Super store in Hutchison, Kansas, is where I bought mine. Ask for Jerry.

Jerry is good. All documentation arrived as promised at substantial savings.

There has been a lot of conversation on this board about Toyota extended warranties, good, bad, where to buy, etc.
When I purchased my 2007 Avalon, my local dealer wanted over $1500 for an extended warranty, so I purchased my 7-75 warranty from the Midwest Toyota Super Store in Hutchison, Kansas for $604. And yes, I did deal with "Jerry".
This past week the CD player died in my vehicle (48K miles). I took it to my local dealer and the radio/CD unit was replaced under the extended warranty at no charge. The Service Manager said it would have cost me around $1300 to replace the unit without the Toyota Platinum Warranty.
I have always had my doubts about extended warranties, but with the complexity of today's vehicles, almost any repair will exceed the warranty cost.

Most consumer advocates still suggest the Extended Warranty on an otherwise dependable make of car is a waste of money, especially if you trade every three or four years as many owners end up doing. I have always agreed with that... but if you look at the newer models and all the electronics, my opinion is shifting a little. Even though no Honda, Toyota or Nissan we have ever owned would have used the warranty, one Nav screen failure, or a CD repair... there's your warranty money back, plus more, as you point out. If I were replacing my '07 Limited today with a '12 w/Nav... I would probably buy the EW, first time ever.....

. . . except you couldn't buy a 2012 Avalon NOW because they have yet to start producing that model year!

True....but sooner or later.... And check out the latest Consumer Reports for a full analysis and comparison of the current Avalon to the Genesis and TL. Interesting reading, all are good cars... different, yes.... but the mag likes 'em all.
