If you are confused about what each of these factory warranties covers, I recommend checking out our article “The Ultimate Guide to Car Warranties.” This guide explains in simple terms what is included in the Basic, Powertrain, Corrosion Perforation, Air Conditioning, Paint, Battery, Tire, Federal Emissions, and California Emissions warranties that come standard with new vehicles. 

Having a solid understanding of factory warranties can help you make informed decisions about purchasing extended protection plans or repairs once the original warranties expire. Our guide breaks down each component of the factory warranty in easy-to-understand language. So be sure to check it out if you need more clarification on what auto manufacturers include in their new vehicle warranties.

Basic Warranty

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty, also known as the basic warranty, does not cover damage or failures resulting from accidents, abuse, improper repairs, modifications, or lack of maintenance. Normal wear and tear, noise, vibration, and normal maintenance services like fluid changes are also not covered. 

Based on the 2009 model year of this vehicle and the current year of 2023, the 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty expired sometime in 2012 or at around 36,000 miles, whichever came first. So at this point, over 10 years later, the basic warranty that came with this 2009 Toyota is no longer valid. Any repair costs outside of the other warranties would be the owner’s responsibility.

Powertrain Warranty

The powertrain warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship on the engine, cylinder block, head and internal parts, timing gears, timing chain/belt, flywheel, valve covers, oil pan, engine mounts, turbocharger housing, transmission case and all internal parts, transfer case, axle housing, constant velocity joints, propeller shaft, and more. This powertrain warranty is good for 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first. 

For this 2009 Toyota vehicle, the 60-month powertrain warranty would have expired sometime in 2014, five years after the in-service date. Or it expired at 60,000 miles if that came first. So at this point in 2023, the original powertrain warranty is no longer valid and any powertrain repairs would be the owner’s responsibility.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The rust perforation limited warranty covers the repair or replacement of any original body panel that develops perforation from corrosion or rust-through. This warranty is good for 60 months regardless of mileage. For this 2009 Toyota vehicle, the 60-month rust perforation limited warranty would have expired in 2014, five years after the in-service date. Since this warranty is not tied to any mileage limits, it expired based on the time only. So at this point in 2023, the original rust perforation limited warranty is no longer valid and any body panel rust repairs would be the owner’s responsibility.

Air Conditioning Warranty

Unfortunately, there is no information provided about an air conditioning warranty duration or coverage for this 2009 Toyota. The factory warranty document does not mention an air conditioning warranty. Most air conditioning warranties range from 3 years/36,000 miles to 5 years/60,000 miles, so it is likely that the air conditioning warranty expired sometime between 2012 and 2014 based on the 2009 model year.

Battery Warranty

The battery warranty information is not specifically provided in the 2009 Toyota factory warranty document. Batteries are typically covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which is the basic warranty covering defects in materials and workmanship. This basic warranty is 36 months/36,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear or maintenance items like battery replacements. 

For this 2009 Toyota vehicle, the 36-month/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired sometime in 2012 or at around 36,000 miles, whichever occurred first. So at this point in 2023, more than 10 years later, the battery is no longer covered under the original factory warranty. Any battery replacement or repair costs would be the owner’s responsibility outside of the expired New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Tire Warranty

The tires on this 2009 Toyota vehicle come with a separate warranty provided by the tire manufacturer, not Toyota. Tire warranties vary by manufacturer and specific tire, but generally cover defects in materials and workmanship for a period ranging from 3 years/36,000 miles up to 6 years/60,000 miles. The tire warranty does not cover normal wear and tear or damage from improper use or maintenance. 

Without knowing the specific tires or tire manufacturer for this vehicle, I cannot provide definitive expiry information. However, given this Toyota is a 2009 model-year vehicle, the tire warranty likely expired between 2012 and 2017, depending on the coverage limits. At this point in 2023, the original tire warranty has almost certainly expired based on time or mileage limits. Any tire repairs or replacements would be the owner’s responsibility outside of the original tire manufacturer’s warranty coverage.

Federal Emissions Warranty

The Federal Emissions Warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship that may cause the vehicle to fail to meet federal emissions standards. It covers the vehicle for 24 months or 24,000 miles from the in-service date, whichever comes first. However, some components like the engine control module and malfunction indicator light are covered for 8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever comes first. 

The warranty does not cover damage or failures from improper maintenance, repairs, alterations, accidents, or environmental conditions. For a 2009 model-year vehicle, the Federal Emissions Warranty would have expired in 2011 or at 24,000 miles, whichever came first, except for the 8-year/80,000-mile components which would expire in 2017 or at 80,000 miles.

The Clean Air Act

The Clean Air Act established vehicle inspection and maintenance programs to encourage proper vehicle maintenance. If an EPA-approved inspection and maintenance program is in force in your area and your 2009 Toyota Corolla fails to meet applicable emissions standards, the Clean Air Act’s Emission Performance Warranty may cover repairs to ensure the vehicle passes the emissions test. This can include the replacement of defective emissions-related parts like the catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, or engine computer. For the 2009 Toyota Corolla, the Emission Performance Warranty based on the Clean Air Act expires in 2025 or at 80,000 miles, whichever comes first.

California Emissions Warranty

The California Emissions Warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship that may cause the vehicle to fail California emissions standards. This covers the engine, transmission, emissions control system, and other related components. It does not cover damage from accidents, abuse, improper maintenance, alterations, lack of maintenance, non-Toyota parts, or environmental conditions. 

For a 2009 model-year vehicle, the short-term California emissions warranty would have expired in 2012 or at 50,000 miles, whichever came first. The long-term warranty would have expired in 2016 or at 70,000 miles, whichever came first.

2009 Toyota Corolla Recalls

The NHTSA recalls for the 2009 Toyota Corolla covered issues like faulty airbags that could explode or not deploy, sticking accelerator pedals, brake problems, seat heater fires, and power window switches that could melt. The recalls affected hundreds of thousands or even millions of Toyota vehicles across multiple models and years. Some of the recalls were expansions of prior recalls as Toyota continued investigating issues. The recalls show that even big automakers like Toyota can face major safety issues requiring large-scale recalls and repairs. staying informed through resources like NHTSA can help owners address these problems.

Extended Warranties

Extended Warranty Available Upon Car Purchase

At the time of purchase, Toyota offered extended warranty coverage beyond the original new vehicle limited warranty through its Extra Care Vehicle Service Agreements. These extended warranties provide additional coverage for the powertrain, drivetrain, suspension, steering, air conditioning, electrical components, and more depending on the plan. To find out if an extended warranty is still active, the owner should check their original contract paperwork or contact their local Toyota dealership with the VIN. Extended warranties can provide additional coverage beyond the original warranty expiration, typically for a longer time or higher mileage. For example, a Toyota Extra Care extended warranty purchased in 2009 may still be active and provide coverage into 2022 or up to 150,000 miles.
