Typically, roadside assistance will help you with anything you may need to get your vehicle up and running, and their call centers operate all day every day so you can always get help when you need it most. In general, most roadside assistance programs include changing a flat tire, battery jump starts, towing services, lockout service, winching, and fuel delivery.

How It Works

The roadside assistance number is available to call at any time of the day. Once you provide a description of your issue to the operator, they choose the best person for the job based on your main problems and sends them to your location as soon as possible. All roadside assistance programs have a network of towing and roadside assistance facilities that are pre-approved and ready to help fix your issue.

Roadside Assistance For New Cars

Toyota provides three years of roadside assistance as part of their manufacturer’s warranty, which protects a new vehicle for the first three years of its lifetime. Toyota Roadside Assistance representatives are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 or online here

Toyota’s Roadside Assistance includes:

  • Towing service to your preferred Toyota dealership within 50 km or the nearest one within 300 km
  • Battery jump-start or towing if the vehicle still fails after the jump start
  • Lockout service if your keys get locked in your vehicle
  • Fuel delivery up to 5 litres
  • Tire change service in the event of a flat tire
  • Winching service if your vehicle gets stuck in a ditch, mud, or snow

In the event that you require towing or emergency roadside services but are unable to contact Toyota Roadside Assistance, Toyota may be able to reimburse you for any costs you may have collected while finding alternative options.

Roadside Assistance For Vehicles That Are More Than Three Years Old

If your vehicle is past its manufacturer’s warranty, you can get roadside assistance either through an insurance company or by purchasing an extended warranty for your vehicle. Usually, roadside assistance is included in the bill when you purchase auto insurance or an extended warranty.

At Drive Autogroup, our roadside assistance is included in all of our extended warranty packages (for more information about extended warranties, click here) or can be purchased on its own from any one of the Drive Autogroup dealerships, including Brimell Toyota in Scarborough.

If you have purchased roadside assistance or an extended warranty with Drive Autogroup, our Roadside Assistance can be reached at 1-800-516-3385 and includes mechanical first aid, tire service, battery, service, delivery service, and locksmith service. In the event that you arrange your own emergency assistance for any of the services covered by our program, we will also reimburse you for any fees you incurred for the services.

Roadside assistance is also very convenient and protects you from costly emergency road service bills. Through the program, they’ll find the best service provider for you and cover their costs. Roadside assistance can mean peace of mind for all drivers; you know you’ll never get stuck on the side of the road or stuck with the bill afterward.
