If you find the various factory warranties on your Toyota Camry confusing, I recommend checking out our article, The Ultimate Guide to Car Warranties. This comprehensive guide explains what each of the main warranties covers:
The factory warranty on a new Toyota includes several different components that each cover specific systems and parts. The Basic warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship across the entire vehicle. The powertrain protects the engine, transmission, drivetrain, and restraint systems. Corrosion perforation warranty covers rust through corrosion on body panels.
Additional factory warranties may cover systems like air conditioning, paint, batteries, and tires. There are also emissions warranties – Federal emissions cover emissions system defects, while California emissions have expanded protection for vehicles registered in that state.
All of these various warranties combine to form the complete Factory warranty that comes with a new Toyota. However, the durations, coverages, and exclusions can be confusing. Our Ultimate Guide breaks down each warranty in simple terms, so you understand exactly what is protected for how long. Check out the guide if you need help interpreting what your Camry’s original factory warranty did and did not cover.
The basic warranty, also referred to as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covers defects in materials and workmanship for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. On a 2010 Toyota Camry, the basic warranty expired in 2013 when the time limit of 3 years was reached, despite the vehicle not yet reaching 36,000 miles.
The basic warranty does not cover damage caused by factors like accidents, modifications, improper maintenance, or normal wear and tear. Things like brake pads, wiper blades, and tires are meant to be replaced over time and are not covered. The basic warranty also excludes incidental damages, like being unable to use your Camry if a covered repair takes too long.
The powertrain warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of the engine, transmission, drivetrain, and restraint systems for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. On a 2010 Toyota Camry, the 60,000-mile limit of the powertrain warranty was exceeded in 2015, resulting in the expiration of the coverage.
The powertrain warranty specifically applies to components like the engine block, cylinder heads, timing gears, timing chain/belt, valve covers, oil pan, engine mounts, engine control computer, water pump, fuel lines, seals, gaskets, torque converter, transmission case, transfer case, driveshafts, U-joints, bearings, seals, gaskets, and restraint system components.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The rust perforation limited warranty covers the repair or replacement of any original body panel that develops perforation from corrosion (rust-through) for 5 years, regardless of mileage.
On a 2010 Toyota Camry, the 5-year time limit for the rust perforation limited warranty expired in 2015. Since this warranty does not have a mileage component, only the passage of 5 years from the in-service date triggers the expiration of coverage.
The rust perforation limited warranty protects against rust that penetrates through the metal on the original body panels. It does not cover surface rust or corrosion on other parts of the vehicle besides body panels. Factors like accidents, damage, and environmental conditions are also not covered under the rust perforation limited warranty.
Air Conditioning Warranty
Unfortunately, the maintenance guide for the 2010 Toyota Camry does not specify the coverage duration or details for the air conditioning warranty. Typically, an air conditioning warranty would cover repairs needed to fix defects in materials or workmanship of the A/C components for a certain number of years or miles. Common terms are 3 years/36,000 miles or 5 years/60,000 miles, but the guide does not confirm the air conditioning warranty parameters for this vehicle.
Since the basic and powertrain warranties have expired based on the 2010 model year Camry surpassing 3 years and 60,000 miles respectively, it is likely any air conditioning warranty with similar terms would have also expired by now.
Unfortunately, the maintenance guide for the 2010 Toyota Camry does not specify the coverage duration, details, or exclusions for the battery warranty. Typically, a battery warranty would cover defects in materials or workmanship of the original battery for a specified number of months or miles, such as 24 months or 24,000 miles. However, batteries can fail prematurely for other reasons like damage, improper maintenance, environmental factors, or normal deterioration, which are often not covered.
Since the basic warranty (also called the New Vehicle Limited Warranty) on the 2010 Camry expired after 3 years, it is likely any similar battery warranty would have also expired by now if originally 2-3 years in length.
Unfortunately, the 2010 Toyota Camry maintenance guide does not provide details on the original tire warranty coverage, exclusions, or expiration.
Typically, an original tire warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship for a set period, such as 3 years or 36,000 miles. But they do not cover normal wear and tear or damage from things like road hazards, improper maintenance, or improper use like overloading. Since the 2010 model year Camrys are now 12+ years old, the original tire warranty has likely expired based on typical 3-year/36,000-mile coverage.
Federal Emissions Warranty
The Federal Emissions Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship in emissions-related parts for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. On a 2010 Toyota Camry, both the 2-year and 24,000-mile limits were surpassed in 2012, expiring the Federal Emissions warranty coverage.
The emissions warranty specifically applies to components like the EGR system, catalytic converter, engine control computer, transmission control computer, oxygen sensors, and other related emissions parts. It does not cover damage caused by factors like accidents, misuse, modifications, improper maintenance, or using replacement parts not equivalent to the original emissions control design.
Since the 2010 Camry exceeded both 2 years and 24,000 miles by 2012, the Federal Emissions Warranty has expired. Any defects or needed repairs to the emissions control systems are no longer covered.
The Clean Air Act
The Clean Air Act requires automobile manufacturers to warrant emissions control components for vehicles sold in the United States. For this 2010 Toyota Camry, the emissions control components are covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles under the Federal Emission Control Warranty, whichever comes first. This coverage expired in 2013 for this particular Camry. Under the Clean Air Act, Toyota would have been required to repair or replace defective emissions control components like the catalytic converter, engine control module, or oxygen sensors if the issue was diagnosed within the warranty coverage period. This emissions warranty coverage helps ensure vehicles meet Clean Air Act standards throughout their useful life.
California Emissions Warranty
The California Emissions Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of emissions-related parts like the catalytic converter, engine control module, and oxygen sensors for this 2010 Toyota Camry. This includes the short-term defect warranty (3 years or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first), the long-term defect warranty (7 years or 70,000 miles, whichever occurs first), and the performance warranty (2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever occurs first).
The California Emissions short-term defect warranty expired in 2013 or at 50,000 miles, the long-term defect warranty expired in 2017 or at 70,000 miles, and the performance warranty expired in 2012 or at 24,000 miles, whichever limit occurred first for each warranty. The California Emissions Warranty does not cover damage caused by lack of maintenance, misuse, or modification of emissions control systems.
2010 Toyota Camry Recalls
The 2010 Toyota Camry was affected by several NHTSA recalls related to safety issues. These included recalls for problems with the accelerator pedal, floor mat interference, brake line clearance, and improper load capacity labels. The accelerators could get stuck due to trapped floor mats, posing a crash risk. Brake tubes were also prone to wearing and perforating from contact with other components. In addition, Toyota had to reissue corrected load capacity modification labels for many vehicles. These NHTSA recalls helped ensure Camry owners could get the problems fixed by authorized Toyota dealers to restore proper safety and compliance.
Extended Warranty Available Upon Car Purchase
At the time of purchase, Toyota dealers often give customers the option to purchase an extended warranty called Toyota Extra Care. This can extend coverage beyond the original new vehicle limited warranty for the engine, drivetrain, and other components. The best way to find out if an extended warranty was purchased on a specific 2010 Camry is to check the original warranty paperwork or contact the Toyota dealer where it was originally sold. Toyota Extra Care plans have various terms and mileage limits, whichever comes first. So a Camry owner would need to review their specific extended warranty contract to see if it is still in effect and what is covered based on the vehicle’s current age and mileage.

2010 Toyota Camry Warranty Brochure/Booklet
If you want a more comprehensive look at the warranty coverage that has expired and what coverage may still be available, you can read Toyota’s warranty booklet. It provides detailed information about coverage, including exclusions.
Here are some things not covered by Toyota warranty and for how long:
- Normal wear and tear, noise, vibration, and cosmetic conditions are not covered under Toyota’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
- Maintenance services like engine tune-ups, oil changes, and wiper blade replacement are not covered.
- Damage from accidents, misuse, improper repairs, or lack of maintenance is not covered under the 3-year/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
- Tires are covered by a separate tire manufacturer’s warranty, not the Toyota warranty.
- Incidental or consequential damages like rental car costs or lost wages are not covered under Toyota’s warranty.
Toyota’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers both parts and labor needed to repair defects in materials or workmanship. This comprehensive coverage is for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. So for a 2010 Toyota Camry, the warranty would cover parts and labor until 2013 or until the vehicle reaches 36,000 miles. After the original warranty expires, an extended warranty can be purchased to continue parts and labor coverage beyond the initial time and mileage limits. Toyota offers various Toyota Extra Care extended warranty plans that can be purchased after the initial sale of a Toyota vehicle, providing extended coverage for repair costs.
The Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty does cover the replacement of defective original exhaust components like the exhaust manifold, exhaust pipes, and mountings. This coverage is for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
For a 2010 Toyota Camry, the warranty would have expired in 2013 or at 36,000 miles. So the New Vehicle Limited Warranty coverage for the original exhaust components has expired based on the age and assumed mileage of a 2010 Camry.
However, the Federal Emission Control Warranty provides additional coverage specifically for emissions-related exhaust components. This covers the catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, exhaust pipes, and mountings for 8 years or 80,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date, whichever comes first.
Toyota offers extended warranty plans called Toyota Extra Care that can be purchased after the initial sale to continue coverage beyond the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period. These plans have various terms and mileage limits.
For example, on a 2010 Toyota Camry, an Extra Care extended warranty could have been purchased anytime before the original 3-year/36,000-mile warranty expired in 2013. The extended plans can range from 1 year/25,000 miles up to 6 years/125,000 miles, whichever comes first. They cover mechanical and electrical components, with specific inclusions and exclusions.
