If you get a Toyota Platinum plan online or from another Toyota dealer it should be the same as getting it from the dealer you bought your car from. I got a Toyota Platinum 7yr/100k mile plan for $880 for my XLE. I have the official Toyota paperwork for it.
#4 of 169 Question about "tiers" of coverage ...
Sep 26, 2007 (6:24 am)
I just purchased a 2008 AWD Limited with lots of goodies, and have been comparing extended warranty prices between the dealer and those available on http://www.toyotawarrantyinfo.com/ or Scott Moss or Doug Bonczek.
Obviously, the dealer's prices are waaaaaaaaaay too high (he came all the way down to $1550! ( ), but he did show me his official Toyota price book with different "tiers" of coverage within the platinum/gold/(whatever) breakdown. When I get quotes from http://www.toyotawarrantyinfo.com/, I do not see any different "tier" levels. Has anyone else experienced this?
I would like to purchase sometime in the next week - the dealer suggested that any price increases have typically occurred around October 1st each year. However, I want to ensure that I have the proper level/tier selected. So far the best deal for me looks like the 7 year/100,000 mile/0$ deductible platinum plan at $880.
Any other thoughts?
Thanks for any inputs!

That seems CHEAP. Imagine what it costs to fix things like the power sliding doors.
Maybe the on-line places only sell the best warranty?
#6 of 169 When can you buy the warranty?

Is it true that you can buy extended warranty anytime before the original warranty expires?
Also, are these warranties are transferable?

I read an article several days ago about this on MSN, and they said that Extended warranty is like life insurance, the sooner you buy it the better your saving will be beause they base price on the age of the vehicle. The Extended warranty will not kick in until your regular warranty expires however. They also said that extended insurance should be transferrable.
Just my two cents......

I believe until the Bumper to Bumper portion expires, so 3 years or 36k miles.
I was going to skip it but for $880 that is very tempting. Mine is an LE with a bit less equipment, do you think the price would be even lower? Did they ask you the model?

This does not make sense for Automobiles.... As it will kick in after the original one expires... and they would not be doing any physical.... only thing is that buying sooner, they'll earn interest on it.

When you go to http://www.toyotawarrantyinfo.com/ and follow the links to the third page (using "price quote" and "show coverage options" buttons), then you'll see a drop down menu (with the options of platinum, gold, and powertrain) just above the available terms of 3 years/50K miles, etc.
