It doesn't matter if you're in the market for a car, an SUV, or a truck. When you drive your new Toyota home, you want to feel confident that you can keep your vehicle in the best possible condition. Find out what ToyotaCare is and learn how this maintenance and assistance plan can keep you safe and your vehicle running smoothly for many miles to come.

What Does ToyotaCare Include?

ToyotaCare is a service program that helps your vehicle run smoothly and perform efficiently. It includes two components: a maintenance plan and an emergency assistance plan.

ToyotaCare Maintenance Plan

Vehicles tend to last longer and drive more efficiently when they receive regular tune-ups. That's why ToyotaCare offers an easy, convenient, and complimentary maintenance program. Here's what ToyotaCare includes:

  • 6 Months or 5,000 Miles: Tire rotation, multi-point inspection, and fluid adjustment.
  • 12 Months or 10,000 Miles: Oil and filter change, tire rotation, multi-point inspection, and fluid adjustment.
  • 18 Months or 15,000 Miles: Tire rotation, multi-point inspection, and fluid adjustment.
  • 24 Months or 20,000 Miles: Oil and filter change, tire rotation, multi-point inspection, and fluid adjustment.
  • 25,000 Miles: Tire rotation, multi-point inspection, and fluid adjustment.

Every time your vehicle receives maintenance under the ToyotaCare plan, you can feel confident about the quality of the work. That's because factory-trained Toyota technicians perform all ToyotaCare maintenance, and they use Toyota Genuine Parts.

ToyotaCare Roadside Assistance

Toyota's Roadside Assistance program offers 24-hour help in emergency situations. To access any of the included services, all you have to do is call the program's toll-free number. Roadside Assistance comes with:

  • Fuel Delivery: It's easy to assume you'll never run out of gas while you're on the road. But if you're driving through a remote area with limited fueling options or you simply overestimate how long your fuel reserve will last, your gas tank could hit empty when you least expect it. Fortunately, Toyota's Roadside Assistance plan offers fuel delivery to your location.
  • Jump Starts: When your vehicle won't start, you could be stranded until you can find a nearby friend or family member who can help. With Toyota's Roadside Assistance, however, you can rely on 24-hour battery jump starts.
  • Lockout Help: Whether you've misplaced your keys or you accidentally locked them in your vehicle, being locked out can be frustrating. Fortunately, you don't have to look up a locksmith or track down someone who can access your spare key. Toyota's Roadside Assistance provides lockout help so you can always get into your vehicle.
  • Tire Service: Flat tires can happen to anyone, even if you're a careful driver. If you're no expert at replacing tires, though, dealing with a flat can be intimidating. That's why Toyota's Roadside Assistance comes with tire service, which replaces the flat tire with your vehicle's spare.
  • Towing: Finding a reliable towing company can be tough, especially if you're dealing with a stressful situation, like vehicle damage. With Toyota's Roadside Assistance, you'll know exactly who to call. This program includes towing to the closest dealership or your dealership of choice within 25 miles.
  • Winching: When road conditions are hazardous, a routine drive can turn dangerous in an instant. Toyota's Roadside Assistance features winching services, so you can get your vehicle out of a ditch, a snowbank, or a muddy or sandy area safely.

Which Vehicles Have ToyotaCare?

Every new Toyota comes with ToyotaCare. Whether you purchase or lease a new Toyota, it's covered by the automaker's maintenance and assistance plan.

How Long Does ToyotaCare Last?

ToyotaCare lasts for two years or until your odometer reads 25,000 miles, whichever event happens first. New vehicle purchases and leases also have 24-hour Roadside Assistance for two years. There's no mileage limit for Roadside Assistance.

How Much Does ToyotaCare Cost?

There's no additional cost for ToyotaCare. The plan is tied to your vehicle identification number (VIN) so it's automatically activated as soon as you purchase or lease your new Toyota.

Where Can I Use ToyotaCare?

You can schedule all ToyotaCare maintenance at the Kings Toyota service center, where factory-trained technicians can service your vehicle. However, if you purchase or lease your vehicle with Kings Toyota, you can also use your ToyotaCare plan at other Toyota dealerships. Just call to confirm that your dealership of choice participates in the ToyotaCare plan, and schedule your vehicle's next maintenance session.

Can I Purchase Additional Service for My Toyota?

If your no-cost ToyotaCare plan already expired, then you have two options for purchasing a prepaid maintenance plan. Take a closer look at what ToyotaCare Plus and Toyota Auto Care offer.

ToyotaCare Plus

ToyotaCare Plus includes a routine maintenance plan similar to standard ToyotaCare, with offerings like oil and filter changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections. However, ToyotaCare Plus is designed for longer-term maintenance. You can choose from various ToyotaCare Plus plans lasting for three years or 35,000 miles to five years and 75,000 miles.

This prepaid maintenance plan also comes with 24-hour Roadside Assistance. That means you can access towing, winching, fuel delivery, and other emergency services.

Your Toyota is eligible for ToyotaCare Plus if it meets these requirements:

  • It has no more than 31,000 miles.
  • Its first date of use was less than 37 months ago.
  • It was eligible for a no-cost ToyotaCare plan.

Toyota Auto Care

If you purchase a used Toyota, you can add on a Toyota Auto Care plan, which features basic maintenance. Like ToyotaCare, Toyota Auto Care includes oil and filter changes as well as multi-point inspections. This plan even comes with personalized service reminders so you never miss important maintenance.

It also includes 24-hour Roadside Assistance to help you stay safe and feel confident while you're on the road. Toyota Auto Care plans last for four years or 55,000 miles, whichever happens first.

From routine maintenance to emergency assistance, ToyotaCare offers peace of mind when you purchase a new vehicle. Browse the new Toyota inventory at Kings Toyota and get behind the wheel of a Camry, Highlander, RAV4, or Tacoma today.
