    Wouldn't do it. I would be surprised if anything at all broke on a 2014 in 2 years. That reliability is probably why you're looking at a Toyota in the first place!

    you don't have to buy a warranty to extend until the day before the factory warranty runs out. So that gives you about a year to decide. But for now? Don't worry about it.

    Don't buy it. That's way too expensive for 2 years.

    You can buy an actual extended warranty from many Toyota dealers, for around that same price you'd be able to get around 4-5 years.

    Go on rav4world.com and do a search, you'll find the contact info there.

    OK thanks .ill deny the insurance but i am scared if anything happens then it would cost a lot to fix the car.This car has 40k miles on it now so does it have any warranty left from Toyota?If the car broke within 30 days then can I return the car ?

    Aha. You didn't mention it had 40K in just two years. Yes, the traction pack, inverter, and other hybrid component it's 100,000 miles. In carb States - it's a hundred fifty thousand miles & 8yrs iirc.

    the warranty is in the warranty manual you should get with the car. 1/12 on everything, 3/36 on the drivetrain, 5/60 on emissions, and 8/100 or 10/150 on the hybrid components.

    if you will sleep better with a 2 year warranty, purchase it. you can't buy peace of mind.

    I've heard the markup / profit on these things is criminal. Don't remember where I read that..

    I think some or all also have exclusions that disappoint.

    When I bought my Prius, I looked into the same question here on PC.com. Universally, every thread I could find was filled with advice to avoid these things. For those who actually examine it, it really seemed like common knowledge. So I assume it is.

    Consumer Reports says extended warranty is overpriced. They say to never do it.

    My guess is that the fundamentals on extended warranties are terrible, a few junkers driving up the cost for everyone. Either that or the markets not competitive. Something. Whatever the case, they're known to be terrible deals.

    That said, IIRC, I think there's a thread here on PC pointing to some dealer's salesman who gives a lower price than most on EW's.
