Toyota Warranty –How Toyota Warranty Cover Works

Toyota Warranty, a ground-breaking new Toyota Warranty launched on 1 June 2021, gives Toyota owners 12 months/10,000 miles’ cover for their vehicle each time they have it serviced at an official Toyota centre. The warranty is automatically applied and there is no extra cost to the customer.

The service-activated Toyota Warranty can continue until the vehicle reaches 10 years or has covered 100,000 miles. All Toyota models qualify as long the age and mileage criteria are met, including passenger cars and light commercial vans and pick-ups.

They do not have to have been purchased from a Toyota centre – second, third and even fourth-hand vehicles traded privately or from other outlets are eligible. Adding a manufacturer warranty will also add to the appeal of a vehicle on the pre-owned market.

The protection also applies to every type of powertrain, from market-leading hybrids and conventional petrol and diesel models to advanced new battery electric vehicles.

Here, we answer key questions about the new Toyota Warranty programme. If you require further information, please let us know in the comments below.

What is Toyota Warranty?

From 1 June 2021, Toyota is changing its warranty programme. All new Toyota vehicles will be sold with a three-year/60,000-mile manufacturer’s warranty as standard. At the same time, Toyota Warranty will be made available to all Toyota owners, when they have their vehicle serviced at an official Toyota centre.

How do I get Toyota Warranty?

There are no complex formalities. The warranty is automatically activated on the completion of a scheduled full or interim vehicle service at an official Toyota centre. By keeping to their vehicle’s service schedule, customers can extend their Toyota Warranty by an extra 12 months/10,000 miles, year after year, until the 10-year/100,000-mile limit is reached.

How does the new Toyota Warranty work?

The warranty operates in the same way as the manufacturer’s warranties provided on new and approved used Toyota vehicles. Cover is automatic when the vehicle undergoes a scheduled full or interim service and effective from that date for 12 months or 10,000 miles – whichever is soonest. On vehicles that have service intervals every two years, the cover is for 24 months/20,000 miles.

There are no forms to sign to obtain the warranty cover and the customer does not have to keep or present any policy documents should they need to make a claim. The warranty status of their vehicle is recorded in the details of their vehicle held by the Toyota network and is noted on the service invoice raised by the centre.

This central record means that a vehicle’s warranty will be recognised at any official Toyota centre, should customers move or choose to have their car serviced at a different location.

Following completion of a service where their vehicle qualifies for the warranty, customers will be sent a confirmation email by their centre (subject to them providing an email address for contact).

If a vehicle requires work to be done under warranty, the customer contacts their local Toyota centre in the first instance. They will be able to confirm the Toyota Warranty status on receiving details of the vehicle.
