Toyota Corrosion Warranty

You are here

The Toyota corrosion warranty includes repairs to any perforation, or rust through, to any sheet metal on a new Toyota vehicle. This Toyota warranty covers repairs of any corrosion due to manufacturer defects or workmanship. It only applies to sheet metal that is provided by Toyota. The Toyota corrosion warranty begins at the delivery date (in-service date) which is the date it is delivered to the first Toyota owner or the date when it is first put into use.

What is Covered Under the Toyota Corrosion Warranty?

Under the Toyota corrosion warranty, any sheet metal that is provided by Toyota that has any signs of rust through due to normal use is covered. There are no additional rust proofing applications required in order for the warranty to be valid. However, there are corrosion protection guidelines. These guidelines can be found in the Corrosion Prevention and Appearance Care section of the Toyota owner's manual. The Toyota corrosion warranty covers what is listed above. For a complete list of what is not covered under the corrosion warranty look at the "What is Not Covered Section" of the Toyota Factory Warranty.

How Long is the Toyota Corrosion Warranty?

The Toyota corrosion warranty applies for 5 years regardless of mileage. It begins with the new vehicle limited warranty and starts the day of new ownership or use. The warranty is transferable. There are no restrictions on the number of owners the vehicle can have in order for the warranty to be valid and it is transferable with no work needed from the owners.
