Toyota has introduced a new warranty programme for customers buying its Approved Used cars with up to 150,000 miles on the clock.
This is a Toyota-backed warranty, not a third-party insurance product, and customers can extend the basic 12 months’ cover for a further four years.
If the car is less than five years old they can choose up to 48 additional months. If it is between five and eight years old then cover is only available for another 24 months.
The warranty includes MoT test cover and customers can spread the cost under a new monthly payment plan.
Should any part covered by the warranty fail, it will be fixed at an official Toyota Service Centre using genuine Toyota parts, with no charge to the customer for parts or labour.
Iain McCall, manager for vehicle remarketing & cost of ownership at Toyota, commented: “We believe our new extended warranty programme gives our customers similar protection and peace of mind to the five-year warranty on all our new vehicles.”
