Good news for owners of hybrid Toyota and Lexus cars purchased before this year – you will now enjoy the same 8 year unlimited warranty mileage for the hybrid battery that was introduced for hybrid Toyota and Lexus cars from 2015 onwards earlier this year.

The warranty for the hybrid battery was previously the same as the car – 3 years or 100,000 km whichever came first. There are terms and conditions of course – you would have needed to service your according to a schedule to qualify for the extended warranty. We understand it is 10,000 km or every 6 months whichever comes first, which may be different from your hybrid car’s previously stipulated service schedule.

This shouldn’t be a problem if you’ve been servicing your car at official service centres all this while, but since the first hybrid cars went on sale way back in 2009, there could be certain owners who opt to service their car at third party service centres after the standard 3 year or 100,000 km Toyota and Lexus warranty is over.

We’ve checked with UMW Toyota on this – as long as you start bringing your car for service at official service centres from now onward, they will be able to provide you with the new extended battery assurance.

Other terms and conditions of the extended warranty is the same as the one that comes with hybrid cars from 2015 onwards – it covers the battery part only and an admin fee of RM100 and other relevant costs in replacing the battery is to be borne by the vehicle owner.
