Thank you so much for this post. We saved over 50% on warranty and service plan by calling Jerry Johnson-----he was great. Over $2,000 saved per car! (We bought two this weekend). I waited to call him after reading this and decided to contact Jerry to see what he could do. Dealer quoted $4400 and we paid him $2215 for EXACT same thing---all through Toyota and he is authorized dealer. Thanks so much for this hint!

Good that Jerry now again is able to sell extended VSAs across state lines - great guy, easy to work with, discounts VSA prices!

His prices are about 500.00 more than they should be...either the dealer is making him mark up these warranty's or he has gone over to the dark side. I also bought from him in 2009 got a 8year/0 ded/75000 for 659.00...great deal. These warranty's have only had one increase since that time of about 25.00.

So this is only good before your warranty runs out? I had an extended warranty on mine because I bought it with high miles and the dealer warranty wasn't that great, but my extended warranty ran out a few days ago. The cheapest I've seen is like $1200 a year which is just crap. I can bank that and save it in case of a repair.

The Toyota VSA must be purchased within the initial 3/36 and is good for a TOTAL of the terms of the warranty i.e. an 8/100 is good for 8/100 from when the car was at 0/0... not 8/100 in addition to 3/36.

There are aftermarket VSA's available, but they are rarely worth it, and often times a scam. Many have very specific conditions regarding even routine maintenance and these are easily voided (with no refund made).
