Toyota warranty for up to nine years

2017-09-29 06:00

TOYOTA has launched two warranty extensions, one for cars under three years and for cars between three and seven years old respectively.

Toyota said both policies, called the Genuine Unlimited Warranty and the Genuine Pre-Owned Warranty+, provide a seamless extension of the manufacturer’s warranty and offer customers unparalleled cover at a very competitive premium.

Premiums for the Genuine Unlimited Warranty start at R155,15 per month for cars with engines under two litres and go up to R522,48 for diesel engines over three litres.

The Genuine Unlimited Warranty only applies on Toyota vehicles still in the original three year or 100 000 km warranty, and which have not skipped more than one service interval within this warranty.

Premiums for the Genuine Pre-Owned Warranty+ start at R231,66 for cars with engine up to two litres and at R521,17 for the popular a 2,5 Fortuner or Hilux diesel.

The Genuine Pre-Owned Warranty+ is for Toyota cars that are outside of the manufacturer’s warranty and three and seven years old, or under 200 000 km,

The Genuine Pre-Owned Warranty+ includes RoadCover and 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

Repairs will be done exclusively by a Toyota dealer with Toyota Genuine Parts.

There is no limit on mileage — the extension options are either six or eight years with unlimited mileage on all petrol and diesel Toyota vehicles.

Owners of hybrid Toyotas, like the Prius, have a 10-year unlimited mileage extension that covers all hybrid componentry, including the hybrid battery.

The policies also provide for replacement (set of shock absorbers, clutch kit and a single instance of brake disk skimming during the period of cover) as a result of wear or tear.

The two extended covers mean Toyota owners who take out the extended covers in due time can keep their cars under a manufacturer’s warranty for up to nine years, because the policies offer the same level of cover as the original manufacturer’s warranty.

Vehicles older than five years that are covered by either of these genuine warranties will continue to qualify for the Toyota Value Service (capped labour rate and discounted parts) at local Toyota dealers. - Supplied.
