Toyota Basic Warranty

Every new Toyota vehicle purchased comes with a limited factory warranty. Part of the factory warranty includes a basic warranty, or commonly know as a bumper-to-bumper warranty. The Toyota basic warranty covers repairs made to the vehicle if the failure is due to a manufacturer defect or workmanship. The Toyota basic warranty begins the day the vehicle is delivered to the first owner (in-service date) or the date of first use.

What is Covered Under the Toyota Basic Warranty?

Under the Toyota basic warranty most components of the vehicle are covered if the fail because of a manufacturer defect or workmanship. Safety restraint systems and wheel alignments and wheel balancing are covered under separate limited warranties. Also included in the basic warranty is emergency towing and transportation assistance.  If the Toyota vehicle becomes inoperable due to a part failure that is covered under the Toyota basic warranty, Toyota will pay the cost of towing the vehicle to the nearest Toyota dealership and will provide alternate transportation if needed.

The Toyota basic warranty covers what is listed above. For a complete list of what is not covered refer to the Toyota warranty booklet.

How Long is the Toyota Basic Warranty?

The Toyota basic warranty applies for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty on the wheel alignment and wheel balancing is 1 year or 12,000 miles and the safety restraint system is covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. It is transferable from one Toyota owner to the next with no work needed from the previous owner and there is no limit to how many owners the vehicle can have in order for the warranty to be valid.
