Generally, you cannot buy an OEM extended warranty plan after your vehicle has more than about 70,000-90,000 miles on it, so getting a Toyota plan may be out for you - check their website, I could not get it to open right on by browser, but I suspect for a reputable plan yuou probably waited too many miles to buy one.

As for after-market plans - I have never heard of one that even began to honor its warranty coverage, they are full of special requirements that are hard to meet (like one I saw that required the car to be driven to their chosen nearest dealer - even if car would not run), generally do NOT cover OEM parts or dealer repairs, and appear to me (like with Home Warranties) to generally make their money by refusing coverage which the plan should cover or making it so difficult to get service that people give up.

My recommendation - start saving up a few hundred $ a month for a car repair/replacement fund, and when you car needs repairs that are substantial look at getting a newor lowish mileage one instead of repairing it.

Here is a link to similar previous questions with answers FYI - basically repeat of what I said above, in a bit more detail
