The Ins and Outs of the Toyota Extended Warranty

The famous car manufacturer—Toyota—offers deals for prolonging the protection of its customers’ vehicles. We can tell you all about Toyota’s warranties and the best way of claiming them.

Toyota Extended Warranty Protection Plans and Coverage

All cars within three years and 36,000 mi are considered new Toyota vehicles and can have a Vehicle Service Contract. The protection of your vehicle begins when you use it for the first time.

Once your vehicle’s factory warranty ends, Toyota offers three protection plans to extend the existing protection. These are some of the components they cover:

What’s Covered
  • Electrical system
  • Brakes
  • Heating
  • AC
  • Fuel system
  • Suspension
  • Manual transmission
  • Automatic transmission
  • Engine
  • Steering
  • Breaks
  • Electrical
  • Cooling system
  • Suspension
  • Fuel system
  • Hybrid fuel
  • Axle assembly
  • Engine
  • Manual and automatic transmission

With each plan, you get 24/7 roadside assistance and vehicle service by factory-trained technicians. The original owner can transfer the Platinum Protection coverage to another individual without cost. This can be done only once, and dealers are excluded from the transfer option.
