If you do plan on getting one from Toyota shop around, my dealer almostbgot me with this one a 7 yr 100k for 2300 bucks almost did it.told me it was 3100 bucks but being I bought a new truck they gave me a "discount", Last minute I opted out they were obviously pissed, long story short got the same warranty for 890 bucks from a Toyota dealer in Massachusetts. I went back to my dealer and showed them they said it's impossible. Had the paperwork, etc

I bought the comprehensive extended warranty from Toyota (not third party) on my Taco. It was about $1200 if I recall correctly, it was a 2008 taco with 8,000 miles (Certified Used Toyota) I bought in 2012. Goes out 5 years and 100k miles. I hope I never need it, certainly. I wasn't too concerned about the extra money.

I had a Subaru that was plagued with expensive AC issues, and that was what sort of pushed me towards it. I had a similar warranty on a Nissan that was not thru Nissan, it was third party, and it never covered anything that failed, so I am skeptical of these. The Nissan dealer screwed me on that one. Hoping that I never need the Toyota warranty, but fairly confident that if I do, being a Toyota Certified Extended Warranty, it will cover whatever oddities may occur.

If money is tight I'd say don't get it. If you flip your vehicle every few years don't get it. I'll take the Taco past 100k miles/5 years so I figured I'd go for it.

I bought the 6 year 160Km warranty from Toyota just for the peice of mind. I think in total it was only $1,500.

My Dad put the same warranty on his Fj Cruiser when he bought it and it saved him as both front wheel bearings went last year.

Essentially when you buy a warranty you are betting something will go wrong and Toyota (manufacturer) is saying nothing will go wrong in the selected time or mileage.

Undercoat on the other hand is a total rip off IMO.

So effing true, they did it to me as well, with the warranty. Back n forth wait sir "me" it's usually 3100 bucks, let me speakmto my boss... 5 minutes later ok he usually don't do this but he knocked off 700 bucks. If u decide to get it after sale, will be 3100.
