It wasn't easy. Multiple unreturned phone calls over a two day period followed by a complaint to the woman answering the phone and a kick "upstairs" to an alleged supervisor. Jeesh...made me think about whether I really wanted to do the buyout.

So how long does it take to get the actual warranty in the mail? I purchased a platinum warranty many weeks ago and nothing yet.

I don't recall exactly, but I'm pretty sure it's in the 2-4 week range. If a month has passed, I would call Toyota Financial to check on it.

Hey Guys,

Forgot to mention: When I got my got my 8 yr / 125K Toyota Extra Care, Platinum coverage with $0 deductible for $1505.00 from Greenfield Toyota My contract already arrived about 2 months ago and I am fully covered. I believe it only cost me $10 bucks a month to get the unit. I live in L.A. and the mail is just forwarded from Brooklyn to where ever you live. Last checked the prices were:

Toyota Extra Care, Platinum coverage with $0 deductible:
4 yr / 100K - $675.00
5 yr / 125K - $915.00
6 yr / 75K - $645.00
6 yr / 100K - $895.00
6 yr / 125K - $1140.00
7 yr / 75K - $715.00
7 yr / 100K - $1025.00
7 yr / 125K - $1250.00
8 yr / 75K - $835.00
8 yr / 100K - $1145.00
8 yr / 125K - $1505.00

so anyone anywhere can get an ext warranty at that price. Hope it helps since that is how I got mine and I'm now fully covered.

When I got my extended one from MA I had to have an in-state address. Brooklyn NY wouldn't have worked, so I used an in-state address there. Tony helped find an EV owner there who then forwarded my stuff. Took nearly a month for Toyota to send it out and then another week before I had it in hand.

The city options I was given were:

Friends or relatives in the Northeast (Massachusetts/New England/New York)?

So I got a unit @ Brooklyn and now I have the Extended Warranty: 8 yr / 125K - $1505.00

+ I forgot to mention there are 2 new longer term extended warranty options:

9 yr / 125K plan is $1665.00, and the 10 yr / 125K plan would be $1795.00.

So, I got lost here - does the Platinum warranty start from the date of purchase of the warranty or from the original date of purchase of the vehicle? I assume the price is the same for any vehicle mileage under 36k.

A local dealer recently said:
It was nice to meet you in person I again do apologize that I couldn’t get back to you yesterday . After checking for the discounts and incentives I can get you for the service agreement on your 2013 Toyota Rav 4 EV with approx 18,000 miles the prices are as follow : I can get you a 8 year 75000 mile platinum service agreement from the day the vehicle was first purchased with a $100 disappearing deductible which means that when you do bring your vehicle into our service dept you will not have to pay the $100 deductible for $ 1445 or a 8 year 100,000 mile platinum service agreement for $1795 .

If he is correct, then the price would likely vary according to the vehicle's 'age' and mileage at the time of the purchase of the warranty, thus sharing one's shopping details less useful.

I'm seriously considering the platinum warranty in the coming week, and would appreciate hearing from experienced buyers,
Ferenc
PS My EV is 34 months old and has 30K miles on it - of which I've put on 12k in the past 18 months.

The "New Car" Platinum Warranty from Toyota is from the in-service date (first sale or lease) and total odometer mileage. You are allowed to buy this "New Car" warranty as long as it is still covered by the 3yr 36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper factory warranty. I have no idea what he's talking about with the "disappearing deductible". The Toyota Platinum Service Agreement has $0 deductible.

The price is the same for any qualifying vehicle because the coverage is for the total time and mileage and the current time and mileage are not considered as long as it is still under the full factory warranty.

I paid $1,245 for 8/100 in February 2015 from Gilroy Toyota. The going price from California dealers seems to be about what you listed. At the current price differential of $300, I would probably use my sister's address in the Boston area to buy it from Greenfield. When I purchased my warranty, the differential was less than $150 and the transaction was an easy one over the phone. I've heard that Gilroy has recently been slapping on a bogus $100 paperwork fee that cannot be refunded because it went in their pocket separately from the purchase with Toyota Financial. That's pretty slimy.

Thanks for the useful reply. I wonder why the Berkeley Toyota guy said the price of the warranty would go up the closer I got to the 3yr/36k mile cutoff? I doubt that the Platinum extended warranty covers more than the new factory warranty.

Thanks for the lead - I'll give the Gilroy Gahlic chaps a call for current pricing, and the contact the two local dealers (Walnut Creek and Berkeley) for comparison.

On a side note, I've not been happy with the local service - try SF, or ...?

" I wonder why the Berkeley Toyota guy said the price of the warranty would go up the closer I got to the 3yr/36k mile cutoff? I doubt that the Platinum extended warranty covers more than the new factory warranty."

That's called a SALES PLOY. The price doesn't change other than from that dealer! Shop around. Give Jason a call in the finance dept at Toyota of Kirkland, WA, too. Google that dealer. 8 year / 125k mile / $0 deductible was going for about $1575 last year. NO in-state requirement to buy. NO inspection if under the 3yr/36k from 1st sale/lease date.

The Platinum warranty actually DOES cover more. It includes lodging and meals if your car breaks down away from home and you're stuck somewhere, for example.

I wouldn't consider buying one of these cars without an extended warranty!
