What is this discussion about?

#1 of 43 Lexus Es 350 Extended Warranty
Jun 02, 2007 (8:17 pm)
Has anyone purchased an extended warranty for their ES 350? I hear that it is probably worth purchasing an extended warranty if you have the navigation system, since it is computer driven and anything can go wrong as it gets older.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
#2 of 43 Warranty price negotiable?

I am also considering the extended warranty, and would be interested in hearing what kind of price flexibility people have seen in their negotiations on the warranty.

2 things I get asked everytime someone buys a vehicle from me is just that......... How much should I pay and is it worth it????
To the first one I answer: How much is "peace of mind" worth to you???? the normal response is not that much! I tell them they can go on line and get an aftercare package for as low as $699.00 for out to 7 years and 100,000 miles. Only problem is that there not backed buy the manufacture and usally use used and rebuilt parts for replacement among other short cuts that end up costing you in the long run. You can also spend $3,000.00 at a dealership with an uninformed client. The simplest way to handle this is to call a couple of dealership in the area and ask ...... "how much for a 7 yr/100,000 Mile Extended Warranty WITH A ZERO DEDUCTIBLE!!!! If you call up and ask for a warranty they will give you the lowest price they can sell with a hugh deductible. Now you'll get a Price range between $1,800.00 and $2,700.00 ALL ARE ESSENTIALLY THE SAME. Depending on what else you buy, financing plan, after market option purchased and so on..... they will give you some sort of discount.
Answer to question 2....... "Is it worth it??????" that is a question you have to ask yourself...... for me I'll tell you this ........ I have a GS 450h with Navigation and I found out that the MFD ( Multi Functional Display ) the big screen ...... is only covered 4 Years/50,000 Miles! After that if anything goes wrong with it then it's $1,830.00 just to have someone diagonistic it. Then they have to fix it. Well that was it for me....... I figuared that for $170.00 more I can protect everything on the car ( Minus wearable parts) out to 7 years/100,000 miles with a Zero Deductable. I may have nothing happen to the car for the next 10 years like a Lexus should ....... but what if???? That's the question you have to be able to answer and live with. $2K for peace of mind for 7 years works out to $23.37 a month .......... I can handle that. Same Question you need to ask yourself.

Purchased ES 350 last week. My best quote for 6 year/100,000
with 0 deductible is 1140.00 for platinum coverage. I found it on the net through a Toyota and Lexus Dealer.

I may have to contact Troy. I researched the price on the Platinum warranty online back in May and the best price I found was from a lexus dealer Park Place. But now the online quote is higher than what I was quoted back in May. I know the longer you wait the chance you take on getting a good price, but it seems like the price jumped a few hundred in two months. Thanks for sharing the website and contact person.
#9 of 43 Ext Warranty Buy Now or Buy Later
Feb 14, 2009 (7:23 pm)
I just got a New 09 ES 350 w/ Nav today. The Biz Mgr is trying to sell me ext warranty now. But he said I can also buy it before the standard wrty runs out (before 4yr/50k). However he is trying to get me to buy now, saying something about "better value". Not very convincing.
I want to buy, but not sure if I should do it now or later. I'm picking up the car in two days and want to decide before then. Please help! Thanks much.
