Because of the TV Ads, a lot of Chinese buyers go to DOWNTOWN TOYOTA to buy their first or next new vehicle. You always think you should buy RUST PROTECTION, or, the salesperson and business manager talks you into buying the RUST PROTECTION. I tell you right now, NEVER, NEVER BUY RUST PROTECTION FROM THERE. If you need RUST PROTECTION, go to find a garage to do it.
The list price is $599 for 10 years. Of course, plus 15% tax, which comes to $688.85. You would think that is all. Wait, not quite yet. The salesperson or business manager will tell you to bring your car in every year to re-paint. They will never tell you every time when you bring your car in for a repaint, there's a $35 labor charge, plus tax. For 10 times, that's $350 plus tax, which is $402.5. In total, you will pay $1091.35 for RUST PROTECTION. I guess the salesperson or business manager might have explained to you, the RUST PROTECTION only covers certain areas, not all your car.
I single DOWNTOWN TOYOTA out because I knew a lot of people complained about the RUST PROTECTION and EXTENDED WARRANTIES. They also sell ECP; I recommend you should not buy it, just waste your hard earned money. You pay $1,300-1,600 for ECP from Toyota Canada. Immediately, about 50% goes to the dealership for naked profit. They laugh at your idiot.
A lot of people also spoke their bad buying experience at DOWNTOWN TOYOTA. Complaining cheating or without integrity. Once you stepped in the dealership, you won't get out easily. That's because the management, the owners (partnerships) want to make every visitor into a buyer, and today's buyer. They want every extra penny from you. The salespersons are pressured to pressure you to get into a deal. If you do not like these hassles, I recommend you to avoid DOWNTOWN TOYOTA; there are some relatively honest and cheap TOYOTA dealerships in GTA. If you live in downtown, go to King Toyota; if you live in Scarborough, go to Pickering Toyota.
I did some research for RUST PROTECTION, a rust proof spray or paint can last about 2-3 years, in some garages, you can pay $50 or 60 to get the job done.
