How do I ensure I get the additional warranty under Toyota Warranty Advantage?
Vehicles used for private use have access to additional warranty coverage if the vehicle is maintained in accordance with the vehicle maintenance schedule as indicated in the Warranty and Service book and in the case of the Hybrid battery extension, have a Hybrid Health Check performed annually. Your Toyota dealer is best equipped to maintain your vehicle with factory-trained technicians, with special service tools, using genuine parts and at competitive prices.
What is the Hybrid Health Check?
A Hybrid Health Check is a detailed analysis, where your Service Centre uses a special scan tool to confirm the health of your Hybrid battery and Hybrid systems to ensure trouble-free motoring.
How often do I need a Hybrid Health Check?
Hybrid Health Checks are done annually beginning from the year five service then each year thereafter for warranty coverage up to 10 years, which is incorporated in your routine maintenance, so no need for an extra trip to your Service Centre.
Will I have to pay for a Hybrid Health Check?
Hybrid Health Check is free when conducted as part of routine maintenance service with a Toyota dealer. If a Hybrid Health Check is requested outside of a routine maintenance, there will be a charge for the labour.
Is "We’ll keep you mobile" the same as Roadside Assistance?
No. Keeping you mobile means that if your vehicle requires a warranty repair, Toyota will cover charges that relate to transporting your vehicle to a Toyota dealer, cost of the repair and a loan vehicle while your vehicle is off the road.
Who should service my Toyota?
Toyota Authorised Service Centres (we have about 300 nationwide) have specialist factory-trained technicians.

The new warranty period only applies to vehicles delivered to a guest on or after 1 January 2019. Vehicles purchased before this date will still have the three-year/100,000km warranty period.
Any Toyota warranty (including relevant Toyota warranty periods) does not limit and may not necessarily exceed your rights under the Australian Consumer Law statutory consumer guarantees. If your rights under the Australian Consumer Law are greater than the Toyota Warranty Advantage (or other applicable Toyota warranties), we will always honour your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
