You can get a 7/100 platinum $0 deductible from Toyota for about $1100-$1200. My experience with non-OEM extended warranties was less than crappy, so no thanks.

I have worked for an aftermarket extended warranty company when I was in highschool, and they are a rip off.

But keep in mind that most OEM extended warranties are just rebadged and actually one of these aftermarket companies.

I got 5/100,000 plat warranty from toyota for 1125 with no deductable. The plat covers EVERYTHING I dont care what goes wrong, it'll be covered. except wear and tear such as wipers and tires...duh

I wouldnt go with a third party even if they are the top warranty company with Forbes.

I would be suprised if Toyota Extra Care is. I got Toyota Extra Care for both Scions and even for my Supra way back in '94 because they made an offer I couldn't refuse.

1994 September - 6/100k miles TT Supra $710 (after refusing all other offers starting at $2100, this was his final offer, and it's less than the cost of one turbo)

2004 October - 6/100k miles Gold $0 ded IIP tC $890 (minimal discussion about price)

2005 February - 6/100k miles Gold $0 ded Flint Mica $1150 (OUCH!) claimed there was a price increase. I still doubt it.

I would never have purchased it if I hadn't had such a good experience with Extra Care on my Supra. Part of it was my service manager, but part of it was also having the no-hassles bumper to bumper as good as factory warranty.

Um the dealer has to go by the Scion pure pricing policy even on the warranty.

The first time I went in to sign the papers, they charged me $1750. The next day, I called them up and told them I wanted to cancel the extended warranty because on the Scion site states $1125 for 5/100,000 Plat warranty coverage is offered for Scion tC. So they said ok I would have to come back in to re-sign the paperwork minus the warranty.
Not less than ten mins the manager personally called me back said that I could get the same warranty for what is listed on the Scion site.
I say cool, I'll be back to re-sign the paperwork.

Sorry to say there is no "price increase", pure pricing policy applies to the Scion warranty as listed on the site. I'd go back to the dealership to demand a refund of the difference.

Scion website is showing 6/100k Gold at $1,000. $150 might not be much to you but it buys mudguards/door sills or a whole new set of floor mats!


If they wont budge, Call Scion corp. They are allowed to go lower in negotiating prices on warranties but they are not allowed to go any higher than whats the listed price.

Pure pricing means that whatever the DEALER posts as the price is exactly what you will pay. That is all. Dealers CAN charge whatever they want to but it has to be posted and not changed in dealings.

^^^ exactly. and as for the increase here, lance, there was. it went from the lower than msrp they were charging (your first tC) to the msrp on the scion website at the time i was asked (your second tC). so really, it wasnt an increase, its that we were saving you money the first time.

I still think it's comical I bought the same warranty for a $40k car in 94 for less than I bought either tC warranty for ten years later. I'm really not stressing the difference, I've already got it back from Toyco...

Call it inflation honey....remember ten years ago we were paying .90 cent a gallon for gas??? I clearly remember when I was eighteen years old I paid .98 cents a gallon to fill up!!
I remember when $1.65 was minimum wage too. I thought I was on the road to easy street when I joined the workforce making a whopping $2.15 an hour in '78.

thats interesting.. i didn't know extended warranties were also "pure price"...
is it in the www.scion.com site? thanks everyone for helpful feedback.. i may just purchase the warranties from the dealer.....

But, which extended warranty is adequate for a tC? i'm thinking of something in 4-5 years...

i take back what i said.. Gold, i think equivalent to MajorCare is 6yr/100,000miles for $871.. thats about $129 dollars difference..
the Platnium warranty seems more fare.. equivalent to SecureCare plan, 6yr/100,000 for $1,115 ... thats only $100 difference. they are all $0 deductible..

i don't think there's a difference... Toyota paying the dealer or Online warranties paying them... anyone had bad experience with WarrantyDirect by any chance?

that doesn't mean toyota warranty is bad... i would pay the extra $100 dollars to avoid the hassle...

Keep in mind that actual cost on these extended warranties is usually 50% or more less than what your charged. For example; a $1000 (your cost) extended warranty usually costs the manufacturer around $300. Then they raise the level a couple-to-a-few hundred to make a profit, then the dealership gets involved and raises it some more.

Pure pricing or not, the dealers are getting ripped off a little, and in turn they try to rip you off even more.

here's what happened.

the powers that be noticed that scion dot com was asking a higher price for the coverage and adjusted their prices to match.

click here for the scion dot com extended warranty prices.

d and i weren't too excited about that either but, we price everything else at the scion dot com pricing and i guess it would make since to follow suit on the warranty too.
