2010 4Ruuner -ECP ?

I would like to seek advise from those mechanically incline members on purchase of ECP for 2010 4Runner Trail Edition. Experiences with ECP on Toyota SUV are welcome as well.

This is a new model year for 4Runner with limited production. There may only be a limited number of these vehicles on the road in the future, due low demand on full frame vehicles with poor gas mileage. Not to mention service and part may be limited as a result to dealership only. The 4Runner Trail edition comes with standard KDSS in Canada. This technology is not available on any other Toyota and only available on very limited number of Lexus in Canada.

I am low mileage user, using the vehicle for recreational purposes including hunting in Ontario (not an off road driver for the sake of off roading). My annual mileage is approximately 15,000klm to 20,000klm (9000 to 12000 miles).

The cost of ECP for 7years / 160,000 Klm (100,000 mil) is $2,500. My dealer claims there is a $400 mark up on the ECP. I can probably get this for $2,100.

Do you recommend purchasing this ECP?

Thank You,
