I'm thinking of adding a Toyota Camry hybrid to our "fleet." I assume these dealers will sell you extended warranties for other Toyota models, right?

Yes, Jerry can sell you a warranty for any Toyota/Scion/Lexus model. Also, Ford/Mercury/Lincoln.

Yes. And I'd recommend it. Full list price from Toyota is, simply put, highway robbery. Jerry's price is very good!

I bought an extended warranty at a steep discount for my RAV4. I've used it a couple of times now and still have two years to run on it.

The story here in Canada particularly Quebec, is different you cannot find other warranty provider with that huge discounted amount. We got the extended warranty in Toyota dealer for 1800cad for 3 years or 60000 km whichever comes first.

Did you try shopping around to different dealers? Sounds like there's a great opportunity for some smart sales person in Canada to start selling lots of discounted warranties!

When I got my RAV4 they tried so hard to sell me a warranty and we just refused. The accountant (Warranty Salesman) go so angry he was yelling. After he finally stopped trying to force a warranty on us he sat there pouting clearly still upset he couldn't scam us.

Congrats on standing firm! I had a similar experience with a Hyundai dealer's accounts rep. in Southern California - she tried to sell me an extended warranty on a car which already had a 100,000 mile warranty and when I refused she got bent out of shape. I also paid for the car in full so there was no commission for her for financing, either. Then she apparently sought revenge by screwing up the paperwork - I found out when the DMV refused to register the car. I had to return to the dealer and raise a fuss so that they finally sorted out the problem.

No such problem when I bought my RAV in Oregon - dealers can't try to shove something like that down customers' throats.

I have learned so much from these forums and will be using Jerry for my upcoming purchase of a 2009. The amount I am saving is insane. about $800.
But before I buy a car...
I am confused about what happens if the vehicle is just over the warranty.

the base 2009 are in my price range. But most of them seem to be either 36,200ish miles or just over 3 years old from the inservice date. How does that work with these plans?
I see there is a "used" vs the "new" plans, for vehicles under 9 years/125,000 miles.
And does it change that if it is toyota certified and just out of warranty vs not? I had a couple close calls, dealers pushing that it is a 2009 but them not mentioning it is juusssst over 3 years old. Ideally, the right rav just under 3 years and 36k will become available...but what if not? I keep my cars 10 years, so I like having as much coverage as I can. On the last vehicle I never needed it at 14 years old, on others...I have. Worth the gamble.
thank you!
