9.1 – A new life of service awaits
From the Burnaston factory, each car is delivered to the Toyota dealership. Here it is put through a Pre-Delivery Inspection in advance of being handed over to its new owner.
Before the car leaves the dealership, however, the owner is talked through its features as part of a comprehensive handover. Once familiar with the car’s controls and technology, it’s time to hit the road. All that hard work back at Burnaston can now be enjoyed for mile after mile.
It can take as little as two weeks for the journey from factory to forecourt to be completed. The end of one journey is the beginning of another, lasting many years and tens of thousands of miles.
9.2 – Peace of mind
Toyota’s faith in the quality of the cars produced at Burnaston is reflected in their five-year, 100,000-mile warranty. There is no mileage limitation for the first year, and any mechanical fault caused by a manufacturing defect is covered.
It’s a testament to the build quality in the Press Shop, Weld Shop and Paint Shop that every Toyota also comes with a 12-year anti-corrosion and anti-perforation warranty. This offers protection against rust affecting sheet metal body panels as a result of manufacturing faults, and is transferable to future owners. There’s also a three-year unlimited mileage paintwork warranty covering defects and surface rust as a result of a manufacturing defect.
Hybrid models come with an additional five-year, 100,000-mile warranty covering all hybrid components and the hybrid battery.
