Warranty vs. Wear & Tear in York, PA

If you’re ready to invest in a new Toyota, it’s crucial that your vehicle is properly protected against potential issues that may arise later on. That’s why every new Toyota comes with a factory warranty and ToyotaCare. But what’s the difference between the two? We’ve outlined what you need to know about these two types of coverage below, so keep reading to learn more.

What Does My Toyota Factory Warranty Cover?

According to Toyota.com, your initial vehicle coverage is as follows:

  • Basic Coverage is 36 months/36,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date of first use and covers all components other than normal wear and maintenance items. This warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship or any part supplied by Toyota, subject to exceptions.
  • Powertrain Coverage is 60 months/60,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date of first use and includes engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel-drive system and rear-wheel drive system.
  • Rust-Through Coverage is 60 months/unlimited miles, from the date of first use regardless of mileage and covers corrosion perforation of sheet metal.
  • Emissions Coverage varies under Federal and California regulations. Refer to your Warranty and Maintenance Guide booklet for complete details.

What Constitutes Wear & Tear

Manufacturer warranties are limited in how much protection they can offer. Even though Toyota is one of the most reliable brands available, Toyota vehicles are still susceptible to daily wear and tear that may lead to problems down the road.

Common issues related to wear and tear include, but are not limited to:

  • Scheduled maintenance.
  • Tire wear.
  • Worn-out wiper blades.


ToyotaCare comes standard with your new Toyota. ToyotaCare is a no-cost maintenance plan that covers maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Not only that, it provides 24-hour roadside assistance for extra peace of mind.** Ask your service advisor today about what this means for your new Toyota.
