When you’re doing research on buying a car, it’s easy to get bogged down in the minutia of which vehicle is the best. All the talk of drive trains and passenger capability can overload our brains, so when it comes to understanding the difference between the Powertrain Limited Warranty and the Basic Limited Warranty on our new or pre-owned Toyota RAV4, we can feel a little lost. So today, we want to demystify some of these concepts, and make things easier for our customers to understand.
New Toyota Car Warranties
If you buy a new Toyota Highlander from Queensboro Toyota of Woodside, you are going to be immediately covered by a minimum of four warranties, all covering very important parts of your vehicle. Let’s start at the Basic Coverage warranty. This lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever milestone your Highlander gets to first. It protects all components of the Highlander other than normal wear and tear components, such as engine oil, brake pads, and filters. The Powertrain Coverage warranty protects for 60 months/60,000 miles, and covers the vital parts of your Highlander necessary for keeping it moving, like the engine, transmission, drive systems, air bags and seat belts. When the winter weather comes, you’ll be protected from the corrosive nature of road salt and rust with the 60-month/unlimited miles Rust-Through Coverage warranty, protecting against the perforation of sheet metal by corrosion. And if you end up getting a Highlander Hybrid, then you’ll also be getting a hybrid battery warranty that’s good for 120 months/150,000 miles!
Toyota Certified Used Vehicle Warranty
In short, the warranties that Toyota has in place for their vehicles are there to make you feel better about your purchase. Even if you buy a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle, you get warranties to keep you protected for years to come, thanks to a 7-year/100,000-mile warranty. When you buy from Queensboro Toyota, you buy peace of mind in your purchase just as much as you do a quality Toyota car.
