If you decide to sell your Scion car during the warranty period, the coverage will automatically transfer to the new owner at no cost, which can benefit your car’s resale value.
Scion Powertrain Warranty
The Scion Powertrain Warranty covers repairs to fix defects in material or workmanship of the engine, transmission and transaxle, front-wheel-drive system, and rear-wheel-drive system for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
For some perspective, this is a pretty average warranty length but is significantly shorter than the Kia, Mitsubishi, or Hyundai powertrain warranties, which last 10 years or 100,000 miles for the original owner.
Scion Restraint Systems Warranty
The seatbelts and airbag systems of your Scion are covered for factory defects for five years or 60,000 miles under this warranty. If your vehicle was sold and registered in Kansas, your seatbelts and related components are covered for a total of 10 years.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Scion’s Corrosion Perforation Warranty provides coverage for the repair or replacement of any original body panel that has developed perforation due to corrosion for five years or unlimited miles.
Federal Emission Control Warranty
The Federal Emission Control Warranty actually consists of two different warranties: the Emission Defect Warranty and the Emission Performance Warranty.
The Emission Defect Warranty warrants that your Scion vehicle was designed, built, and equipped to conform with federal emission control regulations. It provides coverage for defects in materials or workmanship of related parts for three years or 36,000 miles.
The Emission Performance Warranty covers any necessary repairs if your Scion fails to meet emission standards as determined by an approved emissions test and you are penalized. The warranty is valid for two years or 24,000 miles.
Certain emission-related parts like the engine control module and catalytic converter may have longer coverage for eight years or 80,000 miles. You can look for these in your owner’s handbook or warranty guide.
California Emission Control Warranty
California requires all vehicles sold here to conform to the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. According to the California Emission Control Warranty, if a warrantable condition exists and causes your vehicle to fail the state’s smog-check test during the first three years or 50,000 miles, Scion will undertake all necessary repairs and adjustments to ensure your car passes the test.
The Long-Term Emission Defect Warranty provides coverage for listed emission-related parts for seven years or 70,000 miles, such as the CV valve lift controller and intake manifold.
If your Scion vehicle is disabled during the term of the Scion New Vehicle Limited Warranty and has to be kept overnight for warrantable repairs, you are eligible for transportation assistance under the following conditions.
- The vehicle needs to be kept for more than one day for repairs.
- The parts required for repairs are unavailable and the car is unsafe to drive.
- The repair requires extensive diagnosis.
This assistance can be in the form of a loaner car, another mode of transportation, or reimbursement for travel expenses. However, keep in mind that if the repairs can be completed in one day and the car has to be still kept overnight because of a dealer or owner scheduling conflict, this service will not be available to you.
Parts and Accessories Warranties
All Genuine Scion/Toyota parts are covered by their own warranties or the remainder of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever is greater.
If you purchased the accessory along with the new vehicle, then the Toyota Accessory Warranty coverage will be valid for three years or 36 months. If you bought the accessory later, the warranty is applicable for one year or the remainder of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever is greater, excluding car covers. Car covers are warranted for 12 months from purchase and are not covered under the standard warranty.
