All new Toyotas to be covered by a five-year warranty and a 60-day money back guarantee with the Toyota Warranty Advantage program
Toyota has joined a legion of car makers and has introduced a five-year warranty on all new Toyotas sold, effective immediately.
The warranty coverage extends to five years and unlimited coverage for vehicles purchased for private use and five years and 160,000km for vehicles acquired for commercial use.
Toyota has also rolled out a 60-day money back guarantee policy. Basically, what that means is that if you buy a new Toyota and there’s a failure that renders the car undriveable within the first 60-days of purchase, you’ll get you money back. You’ll also get your money back if Toyota is unable to successfully repair a fault on the vehicle after repeated attempts.
Again, this applied during the 60-day period. Toyota will also cover the cost of towing and a loan vehicle if the customer’s car is undriveable.
What’s more, if you stick to Toyota’s logbook servicing program, your car may be eligible for extended cover outside the five-year period, with up to seven years for the engine and transmission. Capped priced servicing is applicable.
If you buy a Toyota with a hybrid drivetrain, there’s up to 10-years/unlimited kilometres. coverage on the battery.
Toyota Australia’s vice president sales and marketing Sean Hanley said the new Toyota Warranty Advantage was the next step in their consumer-focused changes.
“Toyota Warranty Advantage demonstrates the willingness of Toyota and our dealers to provide excellent customer care that matches the enviable reputation of our vehicles for quality, durability and reliability,” Mr Hanley said.
“Our guests have told us that being able to remain on the road, with minimal disruption and inconvenience was most important to them.
“Which is why we’ve taken the time to develop the Toyota Warranty Advantage, to ensure that we deliver what our guests are looking for – a consumer-focused warranty program that will ensure that Toyota owners feel confident and appreciated throughout an exceptional ownership experience.”
