Toyota provides best roadside assistance package

Toyota and sister brand Lexus offer the motor industry’s best roadside assistance packages, according to a new national survey.

The two brands scored equal highest ratings in the latest National Franchised Dealer Association (NFDA) survey. The association’s members, representing dealerships nationwide, are well placed to assess the scope and quality of the service provided.

True to the manufacturer’s reputation for industry-leading customer satisfaction, the Toyota Roadside Assistance package goes further than many of its rivals. New car customers enjoy the benefit of one year’s Europe-wide cover, together with vehicle recovery and repatriation if travelling abroad. Furthermore, Lexus owners enjoy personal coverage, so they can call Lexus Roadside Assistance when travelling as a passenger or driver in another car.

Notably the protection extended to both Toyota and Lexus owners includes the kind of common driver errors that can cause a problem, such as filling up with the wrong fuel, running the tank dry and locking keys inside the car. According to the AA, driver-induced problems account for around 85 per cent of its call-outs.

Toyota and Lexus both work with the AA as roadside assistance partners. To ensure the teams in the field are able to diagnose and fix problems with the least delay, the AA is given regular, direct access to Toyota’s technical experts to learn about the latest technologies, including diagnostics and appropriate repairs for Toyota parts and systems.

The NFDA survey gave Toyota and Lexus a 8.5-point score out of 10, the highest among the 14 different brands represented and well above the industry average score of 7.9.

  5. I recently had a minor accident which made my Toyota illegal to drive. I thought I was covered for recovery back to my hometown and local Toyota dealer. Being a disabled driver this is important to me. However all I was offered was towing to storage at my expense, then recovery home at my expense. Was this correct?
