NEWS: TOYOTA AUSTRALIA JOINS THE ‘EXTENDED CAR WARRANTY’ MOVEMENT
Consumer expectations have changed, and Toyota is driven to meet these evolving needs …
THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ‘TOYOTA WARRANTY ADVANTAGE’ BOOSTS THE NEW CAR WARRANTY FROM 3 YEARS TO 5 YEARS FOR ALL NEW MODELS SOLD FROM JANUARY 1, 2019.
Starting off 2019 with confidence, Toyota Australia announces a change to their new car policy, which offers greater protection and value to the brand’s future buyers.
Other than the five-year, extended car warranty, this new ‘Toyota Warranty Advantage’ also includes protection for private buyers, who will also get a five year/unlimited kilometer warranty.
Commercial and business fleets can expect to receive a five year/160,000-kilometer warranty and owners of new vehicles are entitled to a 60-day money back guarantee!
The warranty for hybrid batteries can be extended to 10 years/unlimited kilometers with an annual hybrid health inspection carried out as part of normal 12-monthly servicing from the fifth year.
Many online critics have suggested that Toyota succumbed to public pressure to change their warranty policy, however, Toyota Australia’s sales and marketing boss Sean Hanley believes otherwise.
Mr Hanley said, “It’s not about following the pack … it’s responding to the needs of consumers.”
“Not all new vehicle warranties are created equally. Many have an impressive headline number … but don’t deliver on what matters.”
Toyota Australia's vice president sales and marketing Sean Hanley said the new Toyota Warranty Advantage was the next step in their consumer-focused changes.
"Toyota Warranty Advantage demonstrates the willingness of Toyota and our dealers to provide excellent customer care that matches the enviable reputation of our vehicles for quality, durability, and reliability," Mr Hanley said.
