Toyota Offers Helping Hand to Government Shutdown Victims

Toyota is offering a helping hand to car owners affected by the government shutdown.

The company is allowing customers employed by the government to defer up to 3 months of payments.

That applies to Toyota and Lexus customers who bought their vehicle with a loan either through Toyota or Lexus financial services.

Toyota's announcement follows similar plans from Hyundai and Nissan.

Its plan extends beyond government workers to include businesses and employees of businesses directly affected by the shutdown, as well as government contractors and suppliers.
