#129 of 169 Buy Extended Warranty for Sienna XLE
Nov 18, 2011 (12:21 pm)
In 2006 I negotiated the extended warranty for a fuklky loaded XLE after seeing posts here. I had to settle for $900 as I wanted the Fidelity warranty of the local dealer who was also doing all my scheduled maintenance which I negotiated for the same cost as WalMart to rotate tires, change oil and complete manufacturer recommended checks. So far the extended warranty has picked up costs for Struts, new radio and motor for 3rd seat- over $4K. If you have electronics galore then I'd recommend negotiating a price from $750-$900. I never buy extended warranties of other products. Tanker

#131 of 169 Sienna Platinum Extended Warranty
Nov 25, 2011 (5:49 pm)
We just purchased a 2012 Sienna XLE Limited van from our local dealer. We decided to purchase the extended warranty since we got all the bells and whistles on this van. Our dealer offered us a "deal" at $1670 for the 8 year/75,000 mile Platinum Toyota Extended Warranty. My husband had read on this forum that there were dealers offering much better deals on this same extended warranty plan so I called Midwest Toyota in Hutchinson, KS and spoke to Jerry Johnson about the extended warranty. His price was $709 for EXACT same warranty from Toyota. Jerry was great to work with and we handled everything over the phone and he emailed me the invoice and is mailing the the paperwork to me. Since we live out of state we paid no sales tax on the warranty. I gave my dealer an opportunity to match this price and the closest they would come was $1070. I guess some dealers are just out to make excessive profit on these extended warranties. We would highly recommend contacting Jerry (800-530-5789 or 620-664-8844 cell) if you are looking for an extended warranty for Toyota, Scion, Lexus Platinum Factory Zero Deductible Warranty or Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln Factory Premium Care Warranty.

Over a year later, and dealerships still use the same lies!
-I was offered a "package" and "discount" since I was a previous Toyota/Lexus customer. That moved super inflated prices to just inflated prices.
-I was told "you can only buy the extended warranty and the prepaid maintenance plan the same day I purchase the car". Right.
-When I said no thanks, I was given a $200 "Costco discount" too. Nice.
-Then I was told about tire protection that does not cover my tires. Huh?
Molle Toyota in MO is the way to go for the extended warranty. They are actually cheaper than Midwest.
#133 of 169 Extended warranty price for Certified Pre Owned?
Dec 12, 2011 (1:03 pm)
I am looking to buy a CPO sienna. Anyone have any thoughts about the price for an extended warranty for a 2011 Sienna with 32K miles that is toyota Certified Pre Owned?
I spoke with a midwest Toyota dealer that quoted me
I would need to get this extended warranty before 36K miles and just thought that I would have the dealer remove the CPO and just get the EW from midwest. Or how much would the additional coverage of 7/100 platinum EW add to the CPO? I would think it would be less than the $889? All thoughts are appreciated.

Last winter I purchased a 2008 CPO Sienna. In another thread somewhere on this board I went thru all the financials on the transaction.
The CPO plan basic warranty adds (last time I looked) a year and 12k miles to the bumper to bumper (so I guess that would take you to 44k miles), plus 7/100k on the powertrain. If they are advertising the van as CPO, they may have already done the paperwork and getting them to reverse it might be difficult. But it is a great thought as it could easily cut $1k or more from the price that could be then applied to the Platinum warranty.
The Platinum plans are available with different deductibles, so make sure those quotes are for the package you want. I paid $1450 for the 8/125 with $0 ded from a dealer in the Chicago area (Toyota of Danville) that I found on line. I put this on top of the CPO warranty, and agree that while it is moderately priced for a platinum plan, it is pretty crazy in that you already have some of this coverage from CPO - essentually you are paying twice! But it was the only way to get the B-to-B coverage that I wanted for the long haul.
You would think that there would be some kind of discount when adding a Platinum plan to a CPO plan. And indeed there is a CPO Platinum plan that differs slightly from a 'regular' Platinum plan. You have to read the fine print to see the differences. Mainly it entailed the Roadside Assistance terms. But the selling dealer wasn't willing to deal on the price to the extent that I could get it from another dealer, plus by going out of state I skipped on the sales tax. In the end, it was better to go regular platinum than CPO platinum.
#135 of 169 Is it too late to buy an extended warranty?
Dec 13, 2011 (6:25 pm)
I bought a new 2010 Sienna less than a year and half ago. It has about 45,000 miles and I wish I had purchased an extended warranty. Is it too late to buy one now?

Your bumper-to-bumper warranty expired at 36,000 miles, so it would probably cost a lot more and require an inspection at this point, if it is even possible.
Just put the money in a separate savings fund, and hopefully you'll never use it, so you can apply it to your next car.

Got a great deal from Jerry at Midwest Toyota as well. We have a 2011 Sienna XLE that was nearing 36k after 18 months. Talked to Jerry and got a 5 year/125k Toyota Platinum warranty with $0 deductible for $799. I went to my dealer and he gave me a price of $1400. Showed him Jerry's offer and he immediately came down to $1049. But that was the "best he could do". And warned me that the Midwest Toyota warranty was likely aftermarket because they could not sell it that inexpensively. I received the Toyota warranty in the mail today. Call Jerry....
#138 of 169 Extended Warranty Shopping and Purchase
Dec 16, 2011 (1:05 pm)
I've been reading this forum--and the "Buying/Purchasing a Sienna" forum--for the last two weeks as I went through the process of purchasing a 2012 Sienna XLE. It's been very, very
helpful. Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences and knowledge.
What I'd like to say is that I purchased an 8yr./100,000 mile Toyota Platinum Extended Warranty ($0 deductible) from Jerry Johnson at Midwest Toyota in Hutchinson, KS. His price was $1039.00. The closest competitor's was $1090 for the exact same warranty. My dealer here in Texas offered me a third-party warranty (also known as an insurance policy) for anywhere around $2145 to $2400, depending on how I financed the thing. I did not give them a chance to match Midwest Toyota's deal.
Why other Toyota dealerships don't offer such a deal is puzzling. Even more puzzling that some offer non-Toyota/third-party warranties. Oh well, it literally pays to do a little extra research and homework about these things. Here's hoping that my extended warranty will
pay for itself someday between years 4 through 8 or 36,000 to 100,000 miles!
