Congratulations! You have just found the new or used Toyota vehicle that you want to purchase or lease. Now that you have found your vehicle, you need to make sure that it is covered by warranty. Vehicle warranties are put into place as a promise from the manufacturer that any faults that occur during the warranty period will be covered. Below are the different types of warranties that Toyota offers its customers. Keep reading to learn which warranty is best for your vehicle and accessories.
The Basic coverage warranty lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles. Basic coverage covers all components except normal wear and maintenance items. Other warranties include powertrain coverage, rust-through coverage and emissions coverage. Powertrain covers the engine, transmission, front-wheel-drive system, rear-wheel drive, seatbelts and airbags for 60 months/60,000 miles. Rust-through covers corrosion of sheet metal for 60 months. Emissions coverage depends on Federal and California regulations.
Hybrid warranty has been enhanced for new models. Starting with the 2020 hybrid models, every battery warranty has gone from eight years of coverage to 10 years/150,000 miles of coverage. Just like new vehicles, hybrid models have basic coverage, powertrain coverage, rust-through coverage and emissions coverage. Additionally, they come with hybrid-related component coverage. All components related to hybrid vehicles are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles or 10 years for 2020 and newer models.
Most Toyota accessories comes with a 12 month coverage period. Warranty coverage starts on the date that the accessory purchase was made.
