What's Covered in the Toyota 3 Month Used Car Warranty?

Hello All,

I'm new to RAV4WORLD so excuse me if I have posted this thread to the wrong Forum.

My wife recently traded in her 2003 3-door petrol RAV NRG for a 2006 5-door diesel XT4 with a local Toyota Main Dealer. As part of the deal we got a 3 month warranty.

Yesterday, after only a couple of weeks of ownership, her car lost power in pretty much all gears but she was able to limp it back to the Main Dealer with black smoke spewing from the exhaust.

Speaking with the Main Dealer they have told me that they have cleaned the EGR valve and will be replacing one of the injectors; they have not been able to explain why there has been a significant loss of oil.

I've been reading through the warranty but am not totally sure which items, listed above, will be covered, if any. Has anyone experienced anything similar and is so what was covered?

Thanks in advance.

Mostly North American members here. Let's hope someone from the other side of the pond replies.

The reason vanib said that is that we do not get any Toyota diesels here at all so we have no clue what such a warranty would involve. Many folks don't realize that.

Hi bluemarce305. Try the Toyota owners club. There is a topic specific to the problems with the 2006 diesel here:-
Charliefarlies Guide To The Toyota 2Ad Diesel Engine And Its Issues. - Rav 4 Club - Toyota Owners Club - Toyota Forum

Hope this helps
