When encountering such problems, it is nice to have Toyota extended warranty to fall back on.

One of many perks associated with maintenance protection is security. Upon purchasing long term warranty protection, you are assured that at least the engine or transmission will be repaired in the event of breakdown. While some has deemed long term maintenance plans as a complete waste of resources, such security is priceless when you’re low on cash and the engine blows. Cars these days have long life expectancies. This means that the five-year coverage that comes with the car may represent only a third of its lifetime. Coverage beyond this point is usually depends on vehicle owner to decide if he wants to continue to be protected from unexpected costs and purchase extended warranty.

Estimate your situation
Although security and comfort are reasons to invest in a long term maintenance plan, you should not run out and purchase the first plan that you find. A lot of research and analysis should be put into the selection process.
Consider your situation, what would happen should your car need major repairs, and what type of coverage is available before making a decision. Extended warranties are essentially a type of insurance. Like all insurance, a lot of people will pay for coverage that they never use so that the company can afford to provide coverage to others who do use it. Toyota warranty is not necessary for some, but proves to be very helpful for others. When looking for the most affordable coverage, first thing you should know is that you can either get one from Toyota directly or acquire it from a third party company.

Toyota Platinum warranty is reserved only for brand new cars, however. The Gold Plan is the stated warranty and the Silver plan includes the power train. Basic Toyota coverage is 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Power train coverage is 5 years or 60,000 miles and covers the air bags, the seat belts, rear-wheel drive and front-wheel drive, the transmission/transaxle and the engine.

Aftermarket warranties
There is also option to purchase the warranties that are sold by third parties. There are many extended warranty providers out there that can provide you with a comprehensive coverage, but there are some that may sell you poor plan, or not honor the deal at all, so it is advisable not to sign up for anything before a detailed examination of the company and their plans.

What to look out when searching for Toyota Extended warranties?

Extended warranty cost is based on how old your car is when you get your plan. The cost of repairs is increasing as cars are getting older. If you extend the warranty while your vehicle is relatively new, it will cost you less in the long run. Auto repair costs are raising so this will lock the Toyota extended warranty price in a less expensive rate. But don’t let the price to be the only measurement; it should be just one of many aspects when deciding which plan to purchase.

Read the contract and terms carefully
Examine the contract thoroughly before you get your Toyota warranty extended. Reading terms of the contract can be a headache, especially for people who do not know that much about cars. But it is highly advisable to at least try to understand what is and is not covered, before buying it. You should also pay the attention how claims are handled. Some providers will require you to pay upfront and then get reimbursed while other will pay the mechanic directly. These all play a factor when doing selection. Some extended warranty providers will offer you a zero deductible plan, and others will require that you to pay a certain amount per service. Find out if you can take your car to any mechanic or are you limited to taking it to the dealership where the car was purchased. Find out what the service requirements are. Understand what is and is not under the coverage. Check if problems caused by wear and tear are covered.

Company reputation
You will need to know the reputation of the company you are considering to purchase the plan from. Research it and see for how long they have been in business. Ask for referrals from your mechanic and your friends. You can also check out the Better Business Bureau reports. Relying on other people’s experiences might be necessary to choose a company with a good reputation.

Policy transferability
Ask if the policy can be transferred. It will be a great selling point if you decide to sell your car. Call your mechanic and ask if they honor this particular company’s plan and what their experience has been working with them. Warranty transfer can sometimes be done at no cost to the buyer and adds to the resale value of your vehicle.

Extra services
Aside from offering security, provider very often give its customers extra benefits and services. These services are often got by purchasing a coverage and will provide the owner with additional benefits such as glass replacement, weather info, travel protection, rental car coverage and a toll-free assistance line, roadside assistance, and liberality to choose the repair location.

Aftermarket plans
Aftermarket warranties can be purchased from banks and car dealers. Some are available on the Internet. They do not all offer the same type of coverage.

Is it worth it?
While in some cases buying an extended coverage is typically encouraged, in other cases it may prove may be a waste of money. So one comes to question is having extended warranty really worth it?

When you buy the car, in most cases it is not necessary to purchase the warranty. New and certified used cars should come with their own coverage, and you won’t have need of any other kind for a while. Keep in mind the expiration dates to make sure when your original plan expires, you can switch to extended options. Take a consideration before you sign up for it. In general, saving the money you would use on the warranty can sometimes be the cheaper option, but not always the better one. Statistically, most people would spend less if they put the money they would spend on additional coverage in the bank and waited to see if they ever needed it. However, for people who would rather know that they are covered, having extended Toyota warranty might be better option.

While you may not be a fan of roadside assistance and towing services, maintenance protection guarantees financing in the instance of serious breakdown. Although many people plan for a rainy day through personal savings and pension plans, long term maintenance protection is the best way to ensure your vehicle’s durability and strength, so in the end Toyota extended warranty is really worth it. Having the coverage will give you a peace of mind knowing that unfortunate circumstances will not wind  up costing you more in case car gets broken.
