Johannesburg - Toyota is now offering some extra peace of mind to South African customers, with two new extended warranty plans.
The new Toyota Genuine Unlimited Warranty is available for vehicles that are still covered by the standard 3-year/100 000km factory warranty, and have not skipped more than one scheduled service. This product is basically an extension of the existing warranty by a choice of up to six or eight years, with no mileage limitations.
Wear and tear items covered under the policy include replacement shock absorbers, clutch kits and one brake disc skimming per year. Complete vehicle failures or malfunctions as a result of wear and tear on the engine, transmission or drivetrain are covered for up to 250 000km. Hybrid models benefit from a 10-year/unlimited km extension only, which covers all hybrid components including the battery.
A second plan, called Toyota Genuine Pre-Owned Warranty+, covers vehicles no longer within the factory warranty, but not older than seven years or 200 000km. Only vehicles which have not missed more than two (non-consecutive) services are eligible. This plan reinstates cover for a period of two years or up to 250 000km, and offers the same levels of cover as the factory warranty. Roadside assistance is included.
