After-market protection items for Toyota Kluger

Asked by Stephen Harrington

I am buying a new Toyota Kluger and the dealer has suggested a number of after-market protection items, including external surface coating, leather/vinyl preserver, carpet/fabric protector and full window tint. The packages costs up to $1995. I am dubious about these things but would appreciate your thoughts.

You're right to be dubious. Ask yourself, and the dealer if you dare, is Toyota's paint so poor that it needs this so-called protection, is the quality of its leather so appalling that it needs extra care, is the carpet rubbish and in need of special care. I think not. It's upselling, plain and simple, and I wouldn't part with my hard-earned cash for something that isn't needed. If you really want it get the dealer to throw it in for free.
