While Toyota automobiles are frequently named among the most dependable, no car is without the need for maintenance at some point.
Whether you’re thinking about buying a new Toyota or already own one, it’s a good idea to know what the Toyota factory warranty covers.
What it doesn’t, how long it lasts, is it lifetime warranty and what extended warranty options are available once your original coverage expires.
We’ll go over everything you need to know in this guide.
What does the Toyota warranty cover?
Your factory warranty will cover repairs and replacement components.
If, there are any faults in the materials or workmanship that cause your vehicle to break down.
A 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty are the two most crucial aspects of the Toyota warranty package.
What Does The Toyota Factory Warranty Cover?
A standard factory warranty is included with all new Toyota cars and begins on the vehicle’s in-service date.
Basic Coverage, Powertrain Coverage, Restraint Systems Warranty, and Corrosion Perforation are the four categories of coverage available under the Toyota warranty for all new cars.
Repairs and modifications relating to defects in materials or workmanship, excluding normal wear and maintenance items, are covered under the Toyota Basic Warranty.
The policy covers you for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Coverage for Powertrains
The engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive systems, as well as ancillary components, are all covered.
The policy covers you for 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Warranty on Restraint Systems
For 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first, this covers repairs for any flaws in seatbelts or air bug systems.
Perforation of Corrosion
This “rust-through” warranty covers sheet metal perforation and lasts for 60 months, regardless of mileage.
Coverage of Emissions
Depending on where you live, your Toyota may be eligible for this coverage, as federal and California requirements differ.
If your area has implemented an EPA-approved vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance program, your vehicle may be eligible for repairs if it fails to meet applicable regulations.
Failure to comply with the law may result in you receiving a penalty, such as a fine or the loss of your vehicle’s use privileges.
The policy covers you for 24 months or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Warranty Coverage On Accessories
Toyota Genuine Parts are made to the highest quality, durability, and performance requirements for safety recall.
Most companies only provide a 12-month guarantee, and there aren’t many, if any, that do.
- The Toyota Accessory Warranty covers accessories acquired at the time of the new vehicle purchase for 36 months/36,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date, which is the same coverage as the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
- With the exception of car covers, coverage for accessories purchased after the new vehicle purchase is 12 months, regardless of mileage, from the day the accessory was installed on the vehicle, or the balance of any relevant new vehicle warranty, whichever provides greater coverage. Car coverings have a 12-month warranty from the date of purchase and are not covered by the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
What Doesn’t My Toyota Warranty Cover?
While the factory warranty for a new car is commonly referred to as “bumper-to-bumper” or “full warranty,” this terminology, which implies extensive coverage, can be misleading.
The Toyota factory warranty excludes regular maintenance items, as well as damage or failures originating directly or indirectly from a broad list of incidents, in addition to the time and mileage coverage restrictions specified above.
Here’s a breakdown of what’s not covered in Toyota extended warranty by type to assist you understand the potential expenses associated with failure or breakdown of what’s not covered:
