    Personally I think buying a warranty is like prepaying for a major repair that may or may not happen.

    Manufacturers offer these warranty packages at these price points as their accountants have figured out failure run rates. This is how they calculate the price of the offerings as well as how long they will offer it for. If was not deemed to be highly profitable then it wouldn’t be offered.

    They calculate the majority will not leverage the warranty during that time period making it a cash cow for them.

    That said, you are still covered under the regular power train warranty for 5 years so it all depends on your comfort with risk.

    Any dealer can sell it, and yes there is room for negotiation on the price. As Don said, it's an insurance policy really.

    I bought the 5 year - 160,000km warranty on my 2011 Toyota Sienna when it was new. Never used it once.....

    ^^^Wife did the same thing on her 2018 Rav4. I doubt that she will use it. But it provides her with piece of mind. When we bought our son his 2010 Venza, we purchased an aftermarket warranty (but through Toyota dealer) and it paid for itself.
