And since there is already a 5/60K bumper bumper you actually got 5/40K.

10/100K already exists on powertrain.

Dealer won.

You used to be able to buy it online. Toyota made the change a few years ago and now you have to buy at a local dealer or visit it in person out of state. One offer to sell if I can use a local mailing address (from friend or family). The pricing delta between local and one in Boston is about 30% difference.

Toyota "usually" don't need it, but if you can sleep better maybe it's worth it.

Thank you

Is it AWD Sienna? If it is, by all means get extended warranty considering what POS those 8 speed transmissions are. And I would just in case get one even if it is just FWD.
Who is financing vehicle? If it is credit union you can get Route66 which is pretty good warranty.

Selling extended warranties is a HUGE profit center for Toyota, it's independent distributors, and it's dealers. Even with independent 3rd party extended warranty companies, Toyota products generate big profits.
Extended warranties are insurance policies. What are insurance companies in business to do? Make money. How do they make money? By taking in more money than they put out paying claims.
One has to consider the reliability track record of the brand as well as the upfront cost of the extended warranty verses how much money will need to be spent on covered repairs during the warranty period. The odds are in your favor (HEAVILY in your favor on a Toyota product) that the cost of the warranty will exceed the amount spent on covered repairs during the warranty period. I'm not saying that Toyota products don't break, they do, but the vast majority of people will be money ahead by not paying upfront for an extended warranty. This is not just on Toyota products since, like ALL insurance products, the premium is based on the loss ratio. When you are shopping for a vehicle you can use this fact as a reliable indicator of the reliability and repair costs by getting extended warranty premium quotes from an independent 3rd party extended warranty company on the vehicles that you are interested in purchasing. Toyota products are always at the bottom of the premium cost scale, while other makes/models can have premiums that are as much as 5-6 times higher. Even some otherwise reliable makes/models can have very high extended warranty premiums because of their exorbitant repair costs.
Having said that, IMO there are some valid circumstances that can warrant the purchase of an extended warranty on a reliable make like Toyota, for example, a single woman who travels (or anyone else who thinks that they could be taken advantage-of by an unscrupulous repair facility).

Been twenty five years since I bought a FCA product and it was a Caravan. That might have been one of two cars (the other was a mid eighties Tempo) where an extended warranty MIGHT have paid off. Can't wait to get Renault into that mix.

I bought a Toyota extended warranty. Good for 125000 miles. Bumper to bumper. Free towing No Deductible. They wanted $1600. Talked them down to $1000.
Already paid for itself. Some thing electric goes out I am covered. I noticed the dealership is "no hassle" with a Toyota warranty. I would get it again and I recommend it.

Its FWD. I think im pretty set getting an extended warranty since we like to keep it for many years.

Also, ask about any extended warranty, at NO CHARGE by Toyota for transmission since that was major clusterf..., mostly on AWD vehicles, but check whether it covers FWD.
Toyota issued TSB recently informing customers that throughout life of a car whining noise and rough shifts should be considered: normal!
Those cars are ridiculously under engineered, and should not give you troubles regarding warranty work. You are basically betting that something will fail on your car.
If Toyota extended warranty on transmission, I would just go with that. But Toyota is trying to cover up this issue since 2017 and if they did not extend warranty for FWD models, than get warranty by all means, and one that for sure will cover any issues, and possibly replacement of transmission. I would not worry about other parts.
