Toyota has introduced a new Approved Used Car Warranty programme for customers buying older and high-mileage vehicles.
Customers buying a Toyota Approved Used Car with up to 150,000 recorded miles will be given a minimum 12 months’ warranty, with the easy option to top-up the extended warranty to provide up to five years’ cover. This is a Toyota-backed warranty, not a third-party insurance product.
If the used car is less than five years old when purchased, up to 48 months’ warranty can be added; if it is between five and eight years old, up to an extra 24 months can be purchased.
Toyota has launched new monthly payment plans, so that customers can spread the cost of their warranty over a fixed period of up to 48 months, subject to the age and condition of their vehicle.
The terms of the Toyota Approved Used Car Warranty mean that, should any part covered by the warranty fail, it will be fixed at an official Toyota Service Centre, using genuine Toyota replacement parts. There is no charge to the customer for parts or labour; they are only required to pay for scheduled annual servicing and maintenance (more frequently for higher mileage use).
The warranty includes MOT test cover and it can be upgraded to include roadside assistance through membership of Club Toyota. The extended warranty includes 12 months’ club membership.Published 21 March 2012
