The Toyota Powertrain Warranty is an extension of the new vehicle factory warranty. The Toyota powertrain warranty covers any repairs made to the components of the engine, transmission, transaxle, and drive systems if the failure is caused by a manufacturer defect or workmanship. The Toyota powertrain warranty begins at the first date of delivery to the new owner or the first date of use.
What is Covered under the Toyota Powertrain Warranty?
Under the Toyota powertrain warranty, the engine and most components such as the cylinder block, cylinder head, and all internal parts, timing gears and gaskets, timing chain, timing belt and cover, flywheel, valve covers, oil pan, oil pump, engine mounts, engine control computer, water pump, fuel pump, seals and gaskets.

The drive system warranty covers both front and rear wheel drive systems and their components such as the final drive housing, axle housing, and all internal parts, the axle shafts, drive shafts, bearing, supports, CV joints, U-joints, front hub and bearings, and seals and gaskets.
The Toyota powertrain warranty covers the components listed above. For a complete list of what is not covered under the powertrain warranty, look under the "What is Not Covered Section" of the Toyota warranty booklet.
How Long is the Toyota Powertrain Warranty?
The Lexus powertrain warranty applies for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty is transferable from one Toyota owner to the next with very little work needed on the part of the previous owner. Also, there is no limit on the number of owners the vehicle can have in order for the warranty to be valid.
If extended coverage is needed there are extended car warranties available that will extend the powertrain coverage beyond the Toyota Powertrain warranty.
