#92 of 186 Do Not Buy Warranty from Dealer who Sold You Your Car...
Apr 08, 2010 (6:42 am)
Unless you're getting a smash up deal. Our dealership sales person tried to make it sound like he swung us a great deal on an extended warranty of 7 years/100k miles (Platinum Coverage) on a new (less than 20 miles) 2010 Highlander Limited and basically worked in another $2,000 cost into our payment plan. Thank God for these forums cause I was going to just go through with it.
Some people suggested purchasing from the Superstore in Kansas. I called and they offered the identical Toyota Platinum Coverage for $810. What a wonderful little profit margin our dealership would have gotten on that. I'm definitely going to cancel it. Plus, I have 3 years and 36k miles to go before having to secure the coverage. I'm really disappointed in those sales and scare tactics they used and pressure point to buy and sign on the spot for the coverage. I guess I'm not the only customer who's experienced this as it looks like many other dealerships do the same exact thing, mark up the price and scare the customer into buying it.
Thanks to all who posted about the Superstore in Kansas. I will be purchasing my coverage through them!

Is it safe to purchase a extended warranty from out of state toyota dealer, if I live in WV, DC, MD or VA then can I buy a platinum warranty from out of state toyota's dealer? Will the coverage remain same and acceptable anywhere in USA? Please let me know. Thanks.

Is it possible to cancel and get a refund on an extended warranty bought from the local dealer and then get a cheaper one from elsewhere? How does one go about doing that?

Yes it is perfectly all right. I purchased mine from Midwest Superstore in Hutchinson Kansas, They are a Ford -Lincoln Toyota Dealer. I purchased the same Platinum plan from them that my local dealer was selling for TOYOTA for minimum half the price. I was told they sell these for only $75.00 over dealer cost.After a week to 10 day's you will recieve your warranty paperwork directly from Toyota.The transaction was simple. They were friendly and explained the process in a simple way.

I also purchased my Toyota Extra Care Platinum warranty with zero deductible from Jerry at the Midwest Superstore in Hutchinson, KS. I am in NY and had done quite a bit of searching around the local dealerships and on the phone calling out of state dealers as well. I called Midwest and their price was by far the cheapest. The process was easy and all done over the phone. I have a 2008 Toyota Camry which I purchased new in October of 2007. I got the 8 year/100,000 miles platinum warranty with $0 deductible for $1,039. Yippee! I highly recommend Jerry, he is very pleasant and informative. He made the whole process very easy!
