Well, obviously Toyota really doesn't want to sell these out of state for hopefully now obvious reasons; they might want you to think it can't be warrantied out of state. Nothing like fear to keep the cars here.
Who Is the Warrantor:
The warrantor for these limited warranties is Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (“Toyota”), 19001 South Western Avenue, Torrance, California 90509-2991, a California corporation.
Which Vehicles Are Covered:
