Toyotas has been long known to make quality products. One of the main USP of the company is that their car are reliable. While this does not mean that all cars from the company are completely niggle free, but the portion of vehicles with any sort of problem is quite low as compared to the competition. However, now the company has come out with a new warranty scheme for its vehicles.
Under the new warranty scheme, one can avail extended warranty up to 2.2 lakh km on all models. This is much more from what the customers could avail before, which was pegged at 5 year / 1.8 lakh km. There are a total of 10 extended warranty packages available now. Customers can opt between one or two more years of time duration with a distance interval of 20,000 km up to 1.6 lakh km. The 1.8 lakh-2.2 lakh km warranties can be availed only for the 4th and 5th years combined.
Prices for the scheme differ depending on model and the age of the vehicle from the date of delivery. The standard warranty offered by the manufacturer stands at 3 years / 1 lakh km, which should be adequate for average city running. This scheme will definitely benefit those who travel often on highways and do long tours on their cars. Toyota also offers 24X7 Road Side Assistance for its cars. This service can be availed by calling on either 1800 102 5001 or on 01242355001.
Vehicles like the Fortuner and the Innova will get the most benefit of the new warranty scheme. This is because they are purpose built for long travels and many people buy them due to the same reason. Its not uncommon to see a lot of Fortuners or Innovas by road side shelters on highways.
Though the scheme is applicable on all models of the company, cars like the Etios or Yaris are not as much proficient in long distance travel as their other bigger siblings. Toyota had not dished out any huge discount this festive season except on a few like Yaris. However, the company is offering aid to the customers in other areas like this warranty cover scheme.
