New 10 Year Warranty for Toyota Cars & Vans!
Well Toyota are offering new and used customers a service-activated warranty called “Relax”, which can be applied until the vehicle reaches 10 years or has covered 100,000 miles.
Not forgetting Lexus! All Toyota and Lexus models qualify a long the age and mileage criteria are met, including passenger cars and light commercial vans and pick-ups.
It get’s better, they do not have to have been purchased from Toyota or a Lexus centre, second, third and even forth hand vehicles traded privately or from other outlets are eligible, potentially enhancing the residual vales of vehicles when de-fleeted.
Once more there is no requirement for a vehicle to have a history of servicing at an official centre in order to qualify for the warranty; it will be applied from the date the vehicle is serviced at a Toyota or Lexus centre.
The idea is to offer their customers the reassurance and value of cover for up to a decade of monitoring. The new warranty applies to every type of power-train and Toyota says there are no complex clauses, exclusions or caveats.
All new Toyota vehicles will be sold with a three-year/60,000 mile manufacturers warranty as standard, while at the same time Toyota Relax will be made available to all Toyota owners when they have their vehicle serviced at an official Toyota centre.
For the Lexus the existing three year/ 60,000 mile new vehicle warranty remains in Place.
The Relax warranty is automatically activated on the completion of a scheduled full or interim vehicle service at an official Toyota or Lexus centre, not only that customers can extend their Relax warranty by an extra 12 months/ 10,000 miles year after year until the 10 year/ 100,000 mile limit is reached.
On vehicles that have service intervals every two years, the cover is for 24 months/ 20,000 miles.
The Relax warranty covers the same parts and labour as the three-year manufacturer’s warranty provided on new Toyota and Lexus vehicles and the one-year manufacturer warranty that’s standard with approved used vehicles.
It does not include wear and tear items, bodywork, paint, interior trims and maintenance parts.
A vehicle health check is part of the service package, which includes all mechanical and electronic parts, which helps potential problems to be detected at an early stage. Any existing defects present at the time of service are excluded from the warranty.
For all Toyota / Lexus customers there is no better time to “Relax” with the all new “Relax Warranty” Ahhh the sound of reassurance!
Till next time guys!
