I just purchased a 2016 Toyota RAV4 XLE 23k miles. Part of the promotion is a 1 year/12k mile warranty (additional to the original 3yr/36K) on certified vehicles.
When I went to talk with person about add ons, he mentioned an extended warranty which added 6yrs/72k miles. So basically get bumper to bumper (Comprehensive) for additional 7yrs/84k miles…this would go for on the car for 7yrs or 107K miles whichever came first.
Now I’ve always heard that extended warranties aren’t recommended as your paying for something you probably won’t use…in this case it cost $2500. The guy at dealer kinda threw a scare saying that with cars becoming more computerized, these warranties are more important than they used to be. Also explained how their mechanic cost per hr is increasing.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I did purchase but have 30 days to cancel and get full refund.
