Toyota has launched a 10-year warranty program for both new and used cars, in the UK only for now; His name is Toyota Relax. A good way to take advantage of the good reliability of its group, which has been praised by several independent studies around the world. But could this cap also come in Belgium?

10 years or 160,000 km
Specifically, the new Toyota Relax warranty provides coverage for 10 years or 160,000 km (100,000 miles), whichever comes first. This warranty applies to new and used Toyota vehicles under one condition: service at an authorized Toyota workshop, even if you are the second, third or fourth owner of the vehicle.
1 service = 1 year warranty
With Toyota Relax, the warranty program adds 12 months / 10,000 miles of warranty every time a customer service their vehicle at an authorized Toyota center. This guarantee is provided automatically and at no additional cost to the customer. So if your Toyota is less than 10 years old and you take it to a Toyota Service Center, you will get another 12 months/10,000 miles warranty until it is 10 years old. In the case of the used model, it does not matter if your Toyota has never been serviced at a Toyota Service Center.
Toyota Relax everyone
Every Toyota model falls under Relax coverage. Both petrol and diesel models as well as hybrid and electric vehicles are eligible. It doesn’t matter if it’s a passenger car, a light commercial vehicle or a pickup truck. Even the Toyota Mirai hydrogen car is included in the program, which covers the same parts and labor as the standard warranty.

And in Belgium?
We contacted Toyota Belgium, who confirmed that there are currently no plans to implement the Toyota Relax program in our country. But who knows… The only question left about such a program today is whether it will also apply to light commercial vehicles being jointly developed with Stellantis, for which Toyota is only reusing a model designed by PSA.
