UMW Toyota has officially introduced a new five-year warranty with unlimited mileage for all of its locally-assembled and imported models registered from 1 April, 2016. The new warranty also applies to the Hilux and Hiace, although both enjoy a 150,000 km mileage cap.
On top of that, Toyota is also offering existing owners who currently have a three-year warranty, an extension to the new five-year with unlimited mileage coverage with a one-time charge, depending on the model. This extension offer will only be available September 30. Customers who sign up will receive a free MaxCheck Advance service package.
Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota stressed that the five-year warranty is fully backed by Toyota Motor Corporation and UMW Toyota. It is only available with vehicles that are distributed by the company through its network of branches and authorised dealers in the country.
In a similar news, Lexus Malaysia has also announced a new five-year warranty with unlimited mileage to replace its current three-year, 100,000 km coverage. Existing owners with the three-year warranty package will be able to upgrade to the new five-year coverage with a one-time fee.
Datuk Ismet Suki, President of UMWT said: “By providing a longer warranty, we aim to enhance the value of Lexus vehicles as well as increase customer confidence in our products. Additionally, resale value can also be better as the warranty is transferable if it is still in effect.”
As with all manufacturers’ warranties, owners must adhere to the scheduled service intervals which must be done at authorised Lexus service centres. Any use of non-genuine parts and technical alterations not authorised or approved by Lexus Malaysia will void the warranty.
