Toyota is one of the most reputable automobile manufacturers in America today. It is known throughout the world to be manufacturer of vehicles that are both durable and stylish. It is also widely available; the company has trusted dealerships that many youth flock to when purchasing their first car. Although the standard of reliability, Accords, Civics, Pilots and other Toyota vehicles are not completely immune from mechanical breakdowns as well as common wear and tear encountered in today’s world. When encountering such problems, it is nice to have a solid warranty to fall back on and Toyota is known for comprehensive warranty that comes with every new car and will protect the owner for a certain number of years or miles traveled, the factory-backed warranty will expire. It does not mean that the owner will not be able to enjoy the same level of protection as there are many additional options on the market today that should be considered when searching for the optimal level of protection.

There are many Toyota extended warranty options offered from the company itself (Toyota care), but there are also extended warranties and service plans that can be purchased from various banks and car dealers. Some of those companies are also available on the Internet and they do not all offer the same type of coverage as terms of their offers vary greatly.

One of many perks associated with maintenance protection is security. Upon purchasing long term warranty protection, you are assured that at least the engine or transmission will be repaired in the event of a breakdown. While some have deemed long term warranties and maintenance plans as a complete waste of money, such security is priceless when you’re low on cash and the engine blows. Cars these days have long life expectancies. This means that the five-year coverage that comes with the car may represent only a third of its lifetime. Coverage beyond this point usually depends on vehicle owner who is to decide if he wants to continue to be protected from unexpected car failures.

Estimate your situation. Although security and comfort are reasons to invest in a long term maintenance plan, you should not run out and purchase the first plan that you find. A lot of research and analysis should be put into the selection process.
Consider your situation, what would happen should your car need major repairs, and what type of coverage is available before making a decision. Extended warranties are essentially a type of insurance. Like all insurances, a lot of people will pay for coverage that they never use so that the company can afford to provide coverage to others who use it. Toyota warranty is not necessary for some, but proves to be very helpful for others.

Having a certified Toyota Care warranty will insure you that the trained technicians will use the latest diagnostic methods and genuine parts when repairing you car. You do not have to submit claims; the dealer is paid by Toyota directly. You can select the terms that will fit your budget and lifestyle. It can be more costly to get this coverage, but it can prove to be very beneficial if you do it. Toyota financial services can offer you a variety of payment options. Check the pricing at different dealerships to see if they have different rates. Another benefit of Toyota warranty is its validity at many Toyota dealerships in the United States and beyond. It’s nice to be able to use a trusted mechanic for your major repair needs without having to come out of pocket for expenses.

New Toyota coverage lasts for 36,000 miles or 36 months and covers most of the components, except wear & tear. Basic Toyota coverage is of the same duration and mileage and is basically bumper to bumper warranty that excludes wear & tear and maintenance items. Power train coverage is 5 years or 60,000 miles and covers the engine, transmission/transaxle, rear wheel drive and similar components. Rust through coverage pertains to holes through the sheet metal, not surface rust, and extends up to 5 years and an unlimited mileage.

There is also option to purchase the warranties that are sold by third parties. There are many extended warranty providers out there that can provide you with a reasonably priced and comprehensive coverage, but there are some that may sell you poor plan, or not the one that is the most suited for you or not honor the deal at all, so it is advisable not to sign up for anything before you do a detailed examination of the company and their plan.

What to look out when searching for Toyota Extended warranties?

Price is one of the key factors when deciding which warranty offer to purchase. When looking for the most affordable coverage, first thing you should know is that you can either get one from Toyota directly or acquire it from a third party company. Usually, the factory backed warranty will be of higher quality but will usually cost more.

Warranty price is also based on how old your car is when you get the plan. The cost of repairs is increasing as cars are getting older. If you extend the warranty while your vehicle is relatively new, it will cost you less in the long run. Auto repair costs are rising so this will lock the price in a less expensive rate. But don’t let the price to be the only measurement; it should be just one of many aspects when comparing the different plans.

Read the contract and terms carefully
Examine the contract thoroughly. Reading the terms of the contract can be a headache, especially for people who do not know that much about cars or laws, but it is highly advisable to at least try to understand what is and what is not covered, before buying it. You should also pay the attention how claims are handled. Some providers will require you to pay upfront and then get reimbursed while other will pay the mechanic directly. These all play a factor when doing selection. Some extended warranty providers will offer you a zero deductible plan, and others will require that you to pay a certain amount per service. Find out if you can take your car to any mechanic or are you limited to taking it to the dealership where the car was purchased. Find out what the service requirements are. Understand what is and is not under the coverage. Check if problems caused by wear and tear are covered.
You can also check the Company reputation. You will need to know the reputation of the company you are considering to purchase the plan from. Research it and see for how long they have been in business. You can also check out the Better Business Bureau reports. Relying on other people’s experiences might be necessary to choose a company with a good reputation.

There are various laws and regulations that may affect you and the market significantly. One of the most common laws is Uniform commercial code that defines the warranty obligations. There is also Lemon law defining the reasonable number of repairs before replacing it, federal emissions and performance as well as design and defect laws. In addition to that, there are also other local laws (i.e. in California) that can play the important role plus additional aspects such as acceptable marketing and business practices, definitions and designations. Not knowing the law is not an excuse if you break it, but even more important, knowing the laws can sometimes also prove to be beneficial to know what is expected from the warranty provider as well.

Policy transferability
When buying a second hand car it is advisable to check if the warranty is transferable to the new owner when selling the vehicle. If the policy can be transferred, and is still valid, the new owner of the vehicle will be able to continue using the benefits until the warranty expires. It will also be a great selling point when selling the vehicle. You can also call your mechanic and ask if they honor this particular company’s plan and what their experience has been working with them. Check if there are any transfer charges; it can often be done at no cost to the buyer. Also check whether warranty is transferable multiple times or only once.

Extra services
Aside from providing repairs and maintenance arrangements, providers will very often give its customers useful extra services such as road assistance, battery and tire service, glass replacement, towing, winching, weather info, emergency fuel delivery, travel protection, rental car coverage and a toll-free assistance line. Some of them are mere conveniences while the other can prove to be very useful in times of emergency.

There are many warranty types that one can come across. They can be categorized based on several different ways. There are various factory warranties that will come with new Toyota vehicle, aftermarket warranties, warranties that include all parts or specific parts or even a single component of the vehicle or also include the service contracts. On top of that, they can be different in the terms of the mileage or months of coverage provided. You can read more about it on warranty types page.

Is it worth it?
While in some cases buying an extended coverage is typically encouraged, in other cases it may prove may be a waste of money. When you buy the car, in most cases it is not necessary to purchase the warranty. New and certified used cars should come with their own coverage, and you won’t have need of any other kind for a while. Keep in mind the expiration dates to make sure when your original plan expires, you can switch to extended options. Take a consideration before you sign up for it. In general, saving the money you would use on the warranty can sometimes be the cheaper option, but not always the better one. Statistically, most people would spend less if they put the money they would spend on additional coverage in the bank and waited to see if they ever needed it. However, for people who would rather know that they are covered, having extended Toyota warranty might be better option.

While you may not be a fan of roadside assistance and towing services, maintenance protection guarantees financing in the instance of serious breakdown. Although many people plan for a rainy day through personal savings and pension plans, long term maintenance protection is the best way to ensure your vehicle’s durability and strength, so in the conclusion, it is worthy to have Toyota extended warranty. Having the coverage will give you a peace of mind knowing that unfortunate circumstances will not wind up costing you more in case car gets broken.
