It seems more are offering this on different models in small Suvs / sedans.


Not out there for large 4wds as a standard warranty yet ,(I don't think) but maybe one of them might offer it as a sales pitch in the future.

Axle, My new Troopie came with standard 5 year warranty + 7 years on engine/driveline. Standard warranty on all Toyotas now.

Alloy I think you are out of date. From the Toyota website:

"When it comes to buying a new car, we believe that nothing should stand between you and the thrill of the drive. Which is why we've made sure new vehicles bought after 1 January 2019 are protected by a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty that covers any part, panel and accessory made by Toyota."

Ozzie Cruiser , don't 'believe' everything you read on Toyota's website , am awaiting delivery of our new Corolla 'hybrid' [ already subject to 2 recalls as soon as was unloaded from the ship ] and can assure you that unless an 'extra' warranty is paid for the standard warranty for the 'Hybrid' is still 3 yrs ....the only thing changed on a Toyota 'Hybrid' warranty is that the battery is now warranted 'pro-rata' for 10 years instead of the 8 previously with a Prius , that started for vehicles with a build date after 1Jan 19...

5 + 7 years warranty is in black and white in the service book that came with my Troopy. Even commercial vehicles get 5 years/160,000k

So you are saying that Toyota are lying on there website in the full gaze of the ACCC.

I am sure people may have problem getting work done under the warranty but what you are saying that Toyota have deliberately published wrong information on their website.

You need to draw this irregularity to the ACCC and other consumer authorities if you think Toyota is lying.

Straight from my 'warranty' for the new Toyota Corolla Hybrid , 'Disclaimers and Notices' section 22 ...New vehicle warranty expires from date of first delivery or 100,000km, whichever occurs first. Refer to warranty conditions . The New Vehicle Warranty does not limit and may not necessarily exceed your rights under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 .

Section 23 , The Hybrid [HV] Battery warranty expires 10 years from the date of first delivery or 160,000 km whichever occurs first .....blah blah blah ...

In writing , in the contract to purchase a new 2019 build and delivery Toyota hybrid ... all of which by the way are on 'recall' even before delivery for a fault in the 'braking regenerative system' ...the recall extends to the new Rav 4 hybrid as well ...

Your recall points are not relevant to the warranty time discussion.

The warranty you mentioned applies to Toyota vehicles bought before 1 Jan 2019. If your car was was bought new by you after 1 Jan 19 then you are being ripped off and you need to enquire with Toyota why you do not have the correct warranty.

Time relevant ? Ordered the vehicle 8 weeks ago , none of the colour in Australia at the time but a new 2019 built shipment 'on the water' from Japan , Unloaded in Brisbane 4 weeks ago , loaded onto truck to be delivered to my Toyota dealer , , before truck gets to leave terminal holding yard , a stop all Movements order from Toyota Head office ...for 2x recalls to be effected on all 2019 build Toyota Hybrids ..The ONLY warranty change on Toyota Hybrids is from 8 years to 10 years warranty on the 'Battery' NOTHING MORE.

We are still grappling with this months thought starter. You are two days early for next months moral issue, or is this a EOFY special?

Yes specials are popular. All the specials I have seen today end at midnight, some even have countdown clocks running. I wonder about the warranty on some of those offers too.

I think there will be a balance effect happening on vehicles. The more they don't sell, the more likely they will offer more warranty to get a grab at market share, until the critical point is reached where the bean counters see more loss than gain in ripping off the suckers, sorry, valued customers.

It’s my understanding that warranty is a guarantee against “fault of manufacture” not wear and tear.
I would think that a faulty manufactured part would fail early in a vehicles life as compared to a part wearing out much later in life.
therefore I don’t see a 5 year or longer warranty being of much use because any failure after 5 years would more than likely be as a result of wear and I bet the car companies would use this to avoid claims.

Any claim on warranty after a reasonable km has elapsed is and always will be highly scrutinised and the owner would need to have significant mechanical and electronic knowledge to be able to substantiate ANY claim. If they don't have those skills and knowledge the will be steamrolled very quickly. The dealer system is a well oiled avoidance machine, far in excess of most owners ability to prosecute a case. I have represented some people after 2 years and 20,000km and it is amazing what companies will do and say to avoid, even when they knew of many of their vehicles being sold new with bent, malformed chassis. Heaven help those who have a problem after a few years and plenty of km's.

Instead of offering 7 year warranties, I and many others would much prefer car manufacturers/dealers to just honour their 3 year warranties !!


Happy safe and trouble free travels

I would much prefer a reliable car instead of people constantly trying to re invent the wheel while skimping on quality electronic parts etc. Man still gets it wrong after over 100yrs of manufactuing vehicles Henry Ford would be literally spinning in his grave SIMPLE AND RELIABLE he would be screaming out.

I agree, it is very worrying taking a technological time bomb to remote locations!
