ECP = Extended Care Protection AKA Extended Warranty. I think the guy is lying that there is still 5 years left on the ECP unless the car is only a year old...most ecp plans i've seen last up to only 6 years

And, sometimes they are not transferable and only good for the original owner. Best to check that thoroughly.

I was also looking at purchasing a used Toyota with an ECP on it. According to Toyota Canada, the original owner has to transfer this to you. It is not valid otherwise.

Toyota just lost a class-action lawsuit in Quebec because they were charging a fee to transfer warranties to new owners. See link.

Its a 2 year old car which originally had the 7yr ECP.
Thanks everyone else in this thread, you have been very helpful, I think Ill end up getting the car. If toyota tries to charge me for transfering the warranty what should I say?

NVM: at the bottom of the page it says "Incidentally, the fee for the extended warranty transfer was dropped by Toyota back in 2000." so i doubt they would charge me.
