Toyota Introduces New Key Replacement Protection

You’ve patted your pockets, checked your purse a dozen times and retraced all of your steps, but you still can’t find your car keys. While this nightmarish scenario would normally be cause for a minor freak-out, it no longer has to be thanks to Toyota’s newest development: Key Replacement Protection.*

While Key Replacement Protection can’t recover your keys for you, it can help in a variety of other ways. For starters, it covers the cost associated with replacing lost, damaged or stolen keys and remotes, up to $800 per occurrence. While it may not seem like it, having new keys made and programmed can cost a pretty penny—up to hundreds of dollars.

“Today’s vehicle technology is great for consumers,” said Karen Ideno, vice president of Product & Marketing, Toyota Financial Services. “Unfortunately, this sometimes comes with a high cost to replace. We know key replacement can be stressful for our customers, and we’re happy to now offer a solution.”

On top of that benefit, Key Replacement Protection also covers other costs associated with losing your keys, including:

  • Towing assistance; up to $100 per occurrence
  • Lock-out assistance; up to $100 per occurrence
  • Taxi/public transportation reimbursement; up to $75 per occurrence
  • Replacement for additional nonprogrammable keys; up to $250 per covered key claim for up to 3 occurrences

Key Replacement Protection is available in a package with Toyota’s popular Tire & Wheel Protection or as a standalone product, and can only be added on at time of financing. To learn more, call or stop by our dealership today.

*Coverage exclusions may apply as follows: 1) Replacement keys, if two (2) master keys were not received at the time of purchase/lease of the vehicle. 2) Replacement keys, if the damaged keys are covered by the manufacturer’s, repairer’s, or supplier’s warranty or recall. 3) Any costs associated when the vehicle key becomes inoperable due to malfunctioning, or a result of reprogramming of vehicle’s main body ECU. Please refer to the applicable service agreement or motor club membership for additional details of terms, conditions, and specific coverage details, including limitations and exclusions, transferability and cancelability. Plans are not available in all states. Coverage may vary by state. This product is optional, cancellable (see agreement terms) and not required to obtain credit.
