    I am a little confused on if this warranty extension is valid for my 2004 Toyota prius. Is it valid or has it expired? Is there a current one? I need my combination meter replaced. Thank you.

    My DOFU was spring of 2016, but I can assume that DOFU is referring to the year of the car? Is this correct?

    Hoping that toyota has released a solution to the dangerous and non-consumer related problem related to the failing Combination Meter, can anyone confirm if there is a new Extended Warranty or possible recal on this? The previous ext. Warranty was only good for 9 years from date of first use which did not help many drivers. Super negligent and ripe situation for class action lawsuits not to mention many potentially fatal accidents on the roads. :(

    No, the DOFU is the date of first use. In other words, the original date a customer purchased the vehilce from a Toyota Dealer.

    Same here, I missed by a year. it's the reason I will never buy a Toyota again, their customer service is terrible.

    I'm guessing most of the problems are just after the 9 years, calculated to guarantee fixing the problem to as few people as possible. It's about $800 to replace, why would they want to do it for free when the can put a stop date. Mine went out at 40,000 miles even though I've had it 10 years.

    What's sad is Toyota used to rank at the top of best customer service.
