#24 of 37 Extended warranty deal
Nov 17, 2009 (7:37 am)
For those of you interested in Genuine Toyota Financial Services. (TFS) Platinum plans with no taxes or other fees, I just purchased an 8 year 100K warranty for my 2007 Avalon Ltd. at Molle Toyota in Kansas City, MO. for $1,145. My car has very low mileage (17K after three years) so that was the best deal for me. They have an 8 year 125K mi. but I didn't ask for the price.
Other plans are:
7 years, 100K, 0 deductible (7/100/0) $960.00
Ask for Neil Hull, and if you can't get him, tell the salesperson he gave you the above quotes several months ago. They should honor the price, even though their current prices may've gone up.

#25 of 37 ALWAYS ask for a lower price on your extended warranty

I have purchased several extended warranties. The two below I have liked:
1. "The Choice" - Grade: A. Paid for every expense I had on my Honda Civic (had a $2K transmission replacement - no hassles, some other minor stuff). They first quoted me $1,400, finally got it for $950. 800-839-7940
2. Warranty Finance Company (or SPD). Grade: B. Honda Odyssey. Quoted me $1,900 - got it for $1,235. They have fixed my electrical problems (power windows), but NOT my LCD clock. (don't have the phone number handy at the moment)
WARNING: You MUST meet all the "requirements" of any extended warranty - like changing your oil every 3 months or 3K miles (more than the car manual demands), KEEP all reciepts to prove your maintenance. If you miss an oil change (or standard 30K/60K/90K maintenance), you LOSE THE WARRANTY. And lastly - some of these plans are transferable, some are not.
Suggestion: Join Consumer's Reports online. $12. They have LOTS of info. (NOT Consumer's Digest).

The warranties that you mention are third-party warranties and many have too many escape clauses for the issuer (insurance company) The manufacturer's warranty is more clear-cut and can be had for comparable costs to the ones you mentioned (or better) if you shop them. There are some references on this site. I bought an 8 year/75000 mile Toyota Platinum level warranty"> for my 2007 Avalon Limited for less than $700 from a Kansas based dealer. I verified its authenticity at my local dealer and it was exactly as represented. Good Luck

I just bought a 7 year/75k Toyota Platinum warranty from JR, Molle Toyota in Kansas City. Price was $655. He beat everybody else I called by $100.
My local dealer wanted $1375 and told me thought that was a 'fair' price - what did I want to pay?
I got quotes from the following (2007 Avalon Limited, with 33k miles)....
6 yr-75k / 7 year-75k
Andy Mohr Toyota
Troy Toyota of Greenfield, MA
Acton Toyota, Littleton, MA
Crown Toyota, Lawrence, KS
Molle Toyota, Kansas City

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.
