Transfer is when the car is sold between private parties. If the car
is sold to a dealer, the warranty does not transfer, but you can cancel
the extended warranty for a partial refund.
Troy explains it much better than I can:

It can't be transferred to a dealer, only between private parties. However,
if someone trades in a car that still has time/mileage left on their Extra
Care agreement, it can be cancelled for a partial refund.
Here is the actual wording from a contract....
Within thirty (30) days of the Agreement Application Date, if no benefits
have been paid, You may cancel this Agreement and we will refund the
Agreement PurchasePrice, minus a $25 processing fee.
In all other cases, we will pay a pro rata refund based on elapsed time from
the Agreement Application Date or elapsed mileage from the Agreement
Application Mileage (whichever refund dollar amount is less), minus a $25
processing fee. All such refunds will be computed based upon the date the
Administrator receives notice of thecancellation request.
To cancel this Agreement and request a refund, return this original
Agreement to Your selling dealer. If that is not possible, send this
original Agreement, with a letter signed by You requesting cancellation
including the date of cancellation and current odometer reading on the
vehicle, to the Administrator at the address shown above. If the
Administrator has notice of a Lienholder or Lessor and a Release of Lien is
not provided, any refund will be paid either to the Lienholder/Lessor or
jointly to You and the Lienholder/Lessor at the discretion of the
Administrator. The cancellation effective date You request cannot be more
than thirty (30) days prior to receipt by the Administrator.
To make it simple if you had a 6 year / 100,000 mile plan and you traded at
exactly 3 years from the purchase date and with 50,000 miles...if you paid
$1000 for the policy, you would get back $500 less a cancellation processing
fee of $25, so you would get $475.00

- There was a time after we took delivery of our 2002 Prius in April, when we’d wave at other Prius’s on the highway. Reminiscent of the time when VW drivers would wave at each other in the late 50’s. It was a nice gesture, but by the time the 2004’s began to be prevelant, the waving disappeared. Times change and I’m told that we should change with them...sigh...RonSounds like fun! Hope y'all can get together. As for us, I guess we wouldn't make it. We DID spend 18 months at Fort Eustis and we got to Raleigh, but not since hubby's discharge.

Yes, what Betty said is so true of the past 14 or so years of this droup. Around 2004, there was a south Florida meet-up (I lived there at the time). Aside from looking at everyone’s Prius and general fun chat, we toured a cool energy exhibit. I don’t recall all the details but I am sure that Prius Pete remembers.
Also, back then, there was a fella who worked at a dealership who offered us the best new car warranty for about $850. (Maybe he’s still around….)
Anyone for a meet-up in Raleigh? Two blocks over from me is my car’s color twin.
