Are Toyota Tires Covered Under Warranty

There are no restrictions on how many structural damage claims you may make while your agreement is in effect with Tire & Wheel Protection. The cost of repairing or replacing your car’s tires or wheels owing to a material or workmanship defect, damage from a qualified road hazard1, and mounting, balancing, valve stem(s), disposal/environmental fees and taxes are all covered. As long as the replacement tires adhere to the manufacturer’s size requirements, you’ll continue to be covered for tires.

Do tires fall under the Toyota factory warranty?

The coverage of the Toyota factory warranty has a few exclusions. Damage brought on by fire or theft is not covered, nor are breakdowns brought on by the use of fluids or gasoline that are not recommended in your owner’s manual. The following additional types of damage are not covered by your factory warranty:

  • airborne substances
  • road trash (including stone chips)
  • Damage caused by hail, floods, windstorms, or lightning during storms
  • pollution of water

It’s also important to note that the manufacturer of the tires, not Toyota, provides the guarantee for tires.

The ToyotaCare No Cost Maintenance Plan offers new Toyota owners an additional incentive by paying for maintenance for two years and 25,000 miles as well as providing free roadside assistance for two years and unlimited mileage. But after the first two years, this service is not offered any longer. Expect to pay for an oil change, tire rotation, inspection, or fluid level correction yourself after the expiration date.

Furthermore, since the fundamental Toyota guarantee does not cover “regular wear and tear expenses” like engine tune-ups, spark plug or fuse replacements, wiper blade repairs, brake pad concerns, or cosmetic issues, Toyota owners will also need to budget for these costs. This includes any vibrations and noises your automobile may create, as well as any cosmetic issues or degeneration brought on by regular wear and tear from driving.

Are tires protected by warranties?

The basic warranty of the vehicle does not cover brand-new tires. Instead, the tire manufacturer provides the guarantee, which is described in a booklet that should be in your new car’s glove box. The tire warranty covers manufacturing flaws or early tire wear. In case you need to file a warranty claim and are required to show that the tires were properly maintained, make sure to keep the tires adequately inflated and keep track of any tire rotation receipts you may have.

Warranty coverage can change

Benefits that are part of warranties may also change. An carmaker may provide a longer warranty or other special coverage, such as maintenance free, in an effort to increase sales. The coverage may be reduced if the automaker’s research reveals that a certain advantage isn’t luring customers to showrooms. For instance, Volvo provided five years of free maintenance in 2010. That has now been reduced to three years. Prior to the 2016 model year, GMC and Chevrolet vehicles were covered by a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The powertrain warranty is currently only valid for 60,000 kilometers. However, warranty modifications are not retroactive. If you require warranty-covered repairs or services, the coverage that was in effect for the model year of your car will be used.

Range of coverage

Volkswagen offers a six-year, 72,000-mile basic warranty as of the 2018 model year. This coverage, which is the longest-lasting among all brands, practically doubled the guarantee from the previous model years. Currently, the shortest standard warranty is three years or 36,000 miles, and it can be found on cars from manufacturers including Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota. Manufacturers including Acura, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Fiat, Mercedes-Benz, and Mini offer standard warranties that are four years or 50,000 miles long. Several automakers, including Genesis, Hyundai, Jaguar, and Kia, provide basic coverage for five years or 60,000 miles.

Roadside assistance

Almost all new-car warranties include roadside assistance, which is usually just as long as the standard warranty in duration. However, Toyota’s roadside assistance only lasts two years, despite the fact that the guarantee is for three years.

Extra coverage for EV and hybrid batteries

Electric or hybrid automobiles cannot function without their batteries, which are therefore quite expensive to replace. For instance, a Nissan Leaf battery costs $5,000. The good news is that federal emissions standards require EV and hybrid batteries to be warrantied for at least eight years or 100,000 miles even though battery components are not covered by the basic warranty. All succeeding owners are entitled to a complete transfer of this coverage.

‘Goodwill’ repair

Imagine that your vehicle’s pricey part fails, and your warranty has just run out. Usually, you’d have to make a payment. However, if the service manager at the dealership agrees, you can obtain a one-time exemption. The local dealership service staff has sole discretion over this act of goodwill. However, your chances of getting the maintenance done there will rise if you ask politely and have a history of doing so.

EDMUNDS SAYS: New-car warranties can vary from year to year and frequently depend on the brand. If warranties play a significant role in your decision to purchase a car, learn about the current warranty coverage.
