- The 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty has expired, as the vehicle is now over 7 years old.
- The 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty has also expired, given the high mileage of the vehicle and the age of the vehicle.
- The 5-year corrosion perforation warranty has expired based on the vehicle’s age.
- The 2-year/24,000-mile federal emissions warranty is no longer valid since the vehicle has surpassed both the time and mileage limits.

Our article breaks down each warranty in clear and simple terms, so you can better understand your rights as an owner.

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty for the 2016 Toyota Camry is essentially the same as the basic warranty, providing bumper-to-bumper coverage for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of any part supplied by Toyota. However, it does not cover damage or failures resulting from things like accidents, modifications, improper maintenance, or normal wear and tear.
For this 2016 Camry, the 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty expired in 2019, since it is now 2023 and well past the 3-year time limit. Anything that would have been covered under the original basic warranty is no longer covered. Knowing what is and isn’t covered by the basic warranty can help owners determine if a repair is their responsibility or not.
The powertrain warranty for the 2016 Toyota Camry covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of the engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel-drive system, and rear-wheel-drive system. This includes components like the cylinder block, transmission case, axle shafts, and driveshafts. The coverage is for 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
For this 2016 Camry, the 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty expired in 2021, since it is now 2023 and past the 5-year time limit. Any engine, transmission, drivetrain, or axle issues that occur now would not be covered. The powertrain warranty has lapsed so repairs to those components would be the owner’s responsibility. Knowing what the powertrain warranty covers and when it expires can help owners understand if a repair is covered or not.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The rust perforation limited warranty for the 2016 Toyota Camry covers repair or replacement of any original body panel that develops perforation from corrosion (rust-through). The coverage is for 60 months, regardless of mileage.
For this 2016 Camry, the 5-year rust perforation limited warranty expired in 2021, since it is now 2023 and past the 5-year time limit. Any rust-through issues that occur now would not be covered unless related to emissions and still within that warranty period. The rust perforation limited warranty has lapsed so repairs for rust perforation damage would be the owner’s responsibility. Knowing what the rust perforation limited warranty covers and when it expires can help owners understand if a repair is covered for rust damage or not.
Air Conditioning Warranty
The duration of the air conditioning warranty for the 2016 Toyota Camry is not specified in the owner’s manual. Without knowing the mileage or time limits for this warranty, it is unclear if it has expired based on the car now being a 2023 model year.
Based on the maintenance log, the Air Conditioning Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of any part of the air conditioning system supplied by Toyota. This includes the compressor, condenser, evaporator, receiver drier, accumulator, orifice tube, accumulator desiccant bag, seals, and gaskets. Most air conditioning warranties are 3 years or 36,000 miles. If that were the case for this 2016 Camry, then this warranty likely expired around 2019 when the 3-year time limit was reached.
The battery warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship of the original battery installed in the 2016 Toyota Camry. Like the air conditioning warranty, the owner’s manual does not specify mileage or time limits for the battery warranty. Without known limits, it is unclear if this warranty has expired based on the car now being a 2023 model year.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty usually would cover the battery for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. This means the battery is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. However, the warranty does not cover batteries damaged from improper maintenance, misuse, modifications, alterations, accidents, or non-genuine Toyota Parts.
There is a separate Tire Limited Warranty provided by the tire manufacturer, not Toyota. It directs customers to refer to the separate tire warranty statement in the glove box for details on coverage and expiration. The Toyota document does not provide any specifics on duration, coverage details, or expiration of the tire warranty
Federal Emissions Warranty
The Federal Emission Control Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of emission control components supplied by Toyota. Coverage is for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first, except for certain components that are covered for 8 years or 80,000 miles. The warranty does not cover damage or failures from improper maintenance, repairs, alterations, or non-genuine Toyota Parts. Since the vehicle’s in-service date is 2016, the 36-month/36,000-mile Federal Emission Control Warranty would have expired in 2019.
However, the 8-year/80,000-mile coverage on certain components like the catalytic converter would expire in 2024. So by the current year of 2023, the original 36-month/36,000-mile Federal Emission Control Warranty has expired, but the 8-year/80,000-mile coverage on some components is still active.
The Clean Air Act
The Clean Air Act requires vehicle manufacturers to warranty certain emissions-related parts for at least 8 years or 80,000 miles. For this 2016 Toyota Camry, the Federal Emission Control Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in emissions-related parts like the catalytic converter and engine control module for 8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever comes first. So while the basic 36-month/36,000-mile Federal Emission Control Warranty expired in 2019, under the Clean Air Act’s extended warranty provisions, coverage for certain emissions components will continue until 2024 or until the vehicle reaches 80,000 miles, assuming average mileage.
Therefore, if certain emissions parts need replacement before 2024 or 80,000 miles, the customer may still be covered under the Clean Air Act’s extended emissions warranty.
California Emissions Warranty
The California Emission Control Warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of emission control components supplied by Toyota. Coverage includes both short-term (3 years/50,000 miles) and long-term (7 years/70,000 miles) coverage on various parts. The warranty does not cover damage or failures from improper maintenance, repairs, alterations, misuse, or non-genuine Toyota Parts.
For this 2016 Toyota Camry, the 3-year/50,000-mile short-term California emissions warranty would have expired in 2019. The 7-year/70,000-mile long-term California emissions warranty on components like the engine control module will expire in 2023 or at 70,000 miles, whichever occurs first. So by the current year of 2023, the original short-term California emissions warranty has expired, but the long-term California emissions warranty may be still active.
2016 Toyota Camry Recalls
Here are the key details for the three NHTSA recalls for the 2016 Toyota Camry in July 2017:
- Front Drive Shaft may Separate (NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V462000): The front drive shaft may separate, resulting in loss of propulsion and increasing the risk of a crash. Toyota will notify the owners and replace the affected drive shafts.
- Incorrect Load Carrying Capacity Label (NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V420000): An incorrect label may lead to vehicle overloading and increased crash risk. SET will notify owners and provide a corrected label.

Extended Warranty Available Upon Car Purchase
Unfortunately, there is no specific information about extended warranty coverage offered by Toyota for the 2016 Camry at the time of purchase. Here are some tips on how to find out if an extended warranty was purchased:
The best way to determine if you have an extended warranty is to check your original paperwork and documentation from when the vehicle was purchased new. Any extended coverage purchased would be indicated in the sales contract or an additional service contract. Review these documents to see if an extended warranty plan was purchased.
You can also contact your Toyota dealer with your VIN to check if an extended warranty is on file. Most extended warranties have mileage and year limits, whichever comes first. For example, a 5-year/60,000-mile extended warranty would cover the vehicle for 5 years or until it reaches 60,000 miles. Make sure to check the terms of any extended coverage.
Without access to the original sale documents or dealer records, it can be difficult to confirm if extended warranty coverage was purchased on a used Camry. Checking paperwork and contacting the selling dealer are the best ways to see if extended warranty coverage was included for the 2016 Camry.
