    When I contacted her I didn't mention I was on this forum. That dealership is just a couple hours from me and I told her I was shopping around looking for the best deal for when my car arrived.

    These are borderline scammy profit makers for a dealership, so I wouldn't put any weight on what they tell you about pricing and I wouldn't read much into it. They could probably sell it for $100 and statistically still make money.

    Agree they make a killing selling these warranties. I bought one due the bmw arrangement. Hope I don’t have to use it but it’s there as a backup

    This was my quote from my dealer
    Also Toyota offers Platinum Plus Tire and Wheel coverage for road hazard coverage for the expensive wheels and tires, which includes key replacement for lost stolen or destroyed keys and remotes, paintless dent repair for dents up to 4 inches.

    5yr unlimited mi $725
    6yr unlimited mi $760

    All are transferable and cancellable with a pro rata refund. So, if you do the 8 yr and sell the car you can have enhanced resale/ trade in value, plus cancel and get a pro rata refund if you trade in.

    I bought the 9280 warranty. It was a couple of grand but I'm sure it will be worth it. Not an easy process though but it includes replacement of lost horsepower and it's owner transferable.

    I got the 100k and premium plus for tires, wheels, dents, keys, and windows for lower than what anyone here has mentioned by far. I had it as a criteria to buy my LE. I planned to go to roughly ten dealers in a weekend and made sure they knew that. The first one I went to wanted to sell, so they worked with me as I was clear I was willing to shop in person everywhere.

    Is tire and wheel worth it?

    If you put decent miles on your car, chances are good that as long as you don’t overpay, you will at a minimum break even. Run flats typically cannot be patched, so a couple of those could very well pay for the plan by itself. I am in sales and this is my daily driver, so i am expecting to come out far ahead on this as in 5 years I could be at 75,000 miles or more in some of the worst roads in the nation. In that same time on my Tacoma, I have had at least one puncture a year.

    If you won’t put many miles, have good roads, and can avoid construction, it may not be the best deal.

    Remember at the end of the day, they make money when all the losses and sales are tallied up on these.

    They tied it all together 7 year / 100 k miles for 2400, and 400 for wheel and tire. They also said that warranties get taxed, is this true?? Tire and wheel is 6 years

    You can do better that seems high. Wheel and tire cost seems fair. Negotiate the warranty
