No Warranty on Jack - Use at your own risk

Hi everyone. I found this out today, and thought it important enough to share.

Toyota does not warranty the standard jack that comes with the 2018 Yaris iA. I had the jack fail while it was being used by a police officer. The jack bent and was unable to fully raise the car. Toyota offers no warranty, but will replace the bent jack part (not the entire jack) in the name of 'customer satisfaction'.

I'm just going to get a small bottle jack and keep that in the trunk, and I strongly recommend that every Yaris iA owner do the same. Don't take silly risks with a weak jack.

why would you use the jack just get a harbor freight 2 ton the jack is for emergencies only and of course theres no warranty on it. there's no warranty for DIY stuff involving anything with cars, its always use at your own discretion.
