Whether you find yourself rushing to a meeting or have carefully planned a fun weekend road trip, few things can disrupt your day as unexpectedly as a car breakdown on the roads of Prince George. Luckily, if you own a Toyota vehicle, assistance is just a call or push of a button away. In the event of a roadside emergency, the Toyota Roadside Assistance Program has your back, offering added peace of mind and an additional layer of security for you and your loved ones. In this blog, we'll explore the features of the Toyota Roadside Assistance Program, how it functions, and why it can be a critical factor the next time you set out on a journey.
What is Toyota Roadside Assistance?
The Toyota Roadside Assistance Program provides complimentary 24/7 emergency roadside support throughout Canada during the two-year warranty period for vehicles released in 2015 and later. However, it's important to note that Toyota's roadside assistance is not restricted to brand-new vehicles. Owners of older Toyota models have the option to enroll in Toyota Service Care and the roadside assistance program through Safety Connect, a service available in Connected Services for a modest monthly fee. Unlike Toyota's manufacturer warranty, roadside assistance comes with no mileage limits. Additionally, many of the programs also include:
- Remote start capabilities
- Remote emergency unlock
- Stolen vehicle tracking
- Automatic collision notification
- Emergency services dispatch
- Toyota maintenance services

How to Access Toyota Roadside Assitance
Toyota Roadside Assistance is accessible around the clock, seven days a week, either through the Toyota Safety Connect app or by dialling the toll-free number: 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828). Moreover, in most Toyota vehicles, you can effortlessly reach Roadside Assistance by pressing the vehicle's SOS button, usually positioned just above your rearview mirror. Even if you are unable to provide details about your location, the agent can automatically retrieve the vehicle's coordinates and other relevant information, ensuring that a tow truck or service vehicle can be directed to your precise location.
