Toyota Tire Road Hazard Protection
Toyota Tire Road Hazard Protection (TRHP)
Whether its your morning commute to work or going out with friends and family to grab some food, driving the streets of Winnipeg can be daunting even at the best of times. Although many of us know better, the rubber you drive on is typically something easily forgotten about in our daily activities. But like many things, if something can go wrong, it will.
Whether you find yourself stranded on the side of the road due to a nail or that nasty pothole you couldn’t avoid this time, first thoughts that come to mind is the potentially high cost of repairing it at an inconvenient time.
Tire Road Hazard Protection, or TRHP, has the ability to alleviate this unwanted and unnecessary stress from your life. When a Toyota owner protects their new tires with Toyota Tire Road Hazard Protection, it takes care of any unexpected damage to your tires, a no-brainer for Winnipeg drivers. The protection plan is specifically designed to get you back on the road quickly and safely based on Toyota’s long-lasting history of safety.
Unlike similar programs, the Toyota Road Hazard Protection plan has no deductible, and no mileage wear conditions should something happen in your travels. This let’s you keep driving while saving you money.
How Does It Work?
At Dilawri’s Crown Toyota, our motto is to make car ownership easy, so you have the choice between either a 3- or 4-year plan. When you purchase your Toyota Tire Road Hazard Protection from us, you are protected from the direct costs associated with repairing or replacing your new tires in the event that the tire(s) were damaged by a valid road hazard.
Getting your tire(s) fixed is as simple as booking an appointment with our service department, or at any Toyota dealership across Canada, and letting us take care of the rest for you. Your tire(s) will be repaired or replaced, depending on the damage. The repair or replacement cost will be fully covered with TRHP (mounting, balancing, weights, patches/plugs, provincial tire levy, and tax).
In short, as long as the damaged tire has more the 3/32″ of tread depth remaining, and the damage was caused by a valid road hazard, you have nothing to worry about.
The plan includes:
- 3- or 4-year coverage against tire damage caused by a valid road hazard
- Repair or replacement of damaged tires including valve systems, mounting balancing, and applicable taxes
- No deductible or pro-rated adjustments
What Is Covered With TRHP?
We’ve been mentioning that when you purchase Toyota’s Tire Road Hazard Protection, Toyota will cover any damages caused by a valid road hazard. What does this exactly mean? Toyota defines a valid road hazard to be a foreign object on a public road that includes:
- Raised Manhole Covers
- Potholes (Yes, Potholes)
If one or more of your tires encounter any of the scenarios listed above, then TRHP will cover the damage to the tire(s) and will be repaired at no cost to you. As mentioned, if the tire cannot be repaired, the dealer will cover the cost of replacing the tire(s) with the same or similar make and model of tire.
Toyota’s protection plan allows you to select how many tires you would like covered and for how long. Each of the tires selected will be covered for the life of the program, with no limit to the number of repairs or replacements during the term (there is an aggregate repair limit of $2000 per contract).
What Isn’t Covered with TRHP?
Any cosmetic damage is not covered under this program. This type of damage can be caused by:
- Blowouts caused by improper inflation/balancing or alignment
- Vehicle accident
- Manufacturer’s defect
- Off-road racing use
- Commercial use
- Driving on a damaged tire
How Does It Work?
Traveling across the boarder? Good news! Toyota’s Tire Road Hazard Protection can even cover you during your trips down to our neighbours to the south. If you are traveling the continental US* and run into a problem that has been listed, simply take your vehicle to the closest Toyota dealer or to a national tire retail/repair facility and you’ll be taken care of.
To ensure proper coverage, make sure to take a photo of the damaged tire and have the tire repaired or replaced with a like make/model of tire, pay for the repair/replacement, and make sure to get a receipt. You can submit a receipt and proof of payment to a Toyota dealer with your TRHP upon your return and you will be reimbursed for the covered costs.
