Looks like you did well. I am looking at a 2013 Titanium later this year I think. If I do I plan to go through NFCU and finance about $15,000 of it (hopefully at 1.79% by the time I am ready to buy). How's she handle?

"The standard warranties are non-transferrable"
If it's a new car and you sell it when part of the original warranty is still in effect, the new owner absolutely gets the balance of what's left on the warranty. Selling the car to someone else would have nothing to do with it. If you purchased an extended warranty that may or may not be transferable.
Food for thought. Don't EVERtake a dealerships word for anything. Take the information they give you and do your best to validate it. When I bought my 2012 Highlander SE in May, 2012, the finance officer tried to sell me a Toyota Extended VSA(extended Warranty). She tried to tell me it was only going to cost X amount more per month, rolled into my loan. First I told her I wanted to know what the actual amount the warranty would cost me if I decided to buy one, and asked about deductibles and coverage, and I wanted to see a copy of the warranty that I could take home and browse over it, before making and decisions. Well of course according to her, I had to purchase the warranty that day, and she didn't have a copy of the warranty in hand, but could tell me what it covered. I declined, and she gave me the whole B.S. about expensive electronics in cars today and if something happened, it would probably cost me thousands out of pocket to fix. I told her that if the Highlander fell apart to that extent shortly after the warranty expired, I would never buy another toyota in my lifetime again. The dealership quoted price for a Toyota VSA(extended warranty) started at $2200 and she came down to $1500, but only if I bought it that day. She also told me that Toyota doesn't sell tehir warranties Ala Carte(separately), so if I didn't get it then I would be out of luck.
Well having done my home work before hand, I knew that several Toyota dealerships did in fact sell the exact same Toyota VSA ala carte. I subsequently only 3 weeks ago 2/13, ended up purchasing a Toyota VSA(7yr/75000 miles $0 deductible Platinum Plan) for $710 from Acton Toyota of Acton, Massachusetts. I only put about 8,000 miles per yr. on my car, because I live about 1 mile from my job, and msot miles are when I travel with my family during the sping/summer months. I save $800 on the warranty, not falling for the dealership tricks.
