Hi,
I just purchased a 2011 Rav4 Base V6 with 56K miles. It came from the dealer with a 30 day warranty. (I could sleep for 30 days!) The purchase was quite an ordeal since I never experienced buying from a dealer before. After asking, I was offered this warrany for $2100.00. 60k/5year. I would probably take it out to 5 years since my driving is limited. They said that this is a "friends & family" price. Reports are that this is a pretty solid car. Should I make this huge investment?

A RAV V6 with 56k miles is barely broken in. I'd stay far away from a $2100 warranty for this car. YMMV.

Yep.
When we could still get the extended policy by email from Toyota of Shreveport, it was something like $800 or $1200 for 8 year 100k.
The only thing likely to need service on any modern Toyota that would be covered by the EPP would be the water pump and alternator.
Even if both fail, your out of pocket will be less than $1500. Absolutely not worth $2100.

Thank you for your reply! Sounds good. I was wondering what might go wrong on a RAV4 V6 with this history. It came with a heavy hitch, but no telling if it was pulling too much weight... 2 owners both from New England although my mechanic thoought rust was OK.
I think that I made the right purchase!!!
