Toyota Certified Used Vehicles


Toyota Certified Used Vehicles

The best new cars make the best used cars. It stands to reason that the better a product is made the longer it will last, which makes getting a high-quality, low-mileage Toyota at a great price a very savvy move.

Toyota’s timeless commitment to quality, innovation and durability is the foundation upon which the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program launched in 1996. With each passing year, the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program has gained momentum – totaling over three million sales and counting.

Along with industry-leading heritage comes another advantage: an exceptional coverage policy. With a 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Warranty and a 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, plus one full year of Roadside Assistance, honored at over 1,400 Toyota dealers in the U.S. and Canada, we’ve got you covered.

You don’t have to worry. You’re covered.

And yes, the best new hybrids make the best used hybrids too. Born from our commitment to environmental responsibility, the Toyota Certified Used Hybrid (TCUH) program makes it easy to drive a top-quality, low-emission vehicle. Being mindful of the world’s resources and providing industry-leading technology is part of what makes Toyota Hybrids so attractive. Yet, the level of technology can give some customers pause when considering a used hybrid. Relax. We put our Certified Used Hybrid candidates through a rigorous 174-point Quality Assurance Inspection – that’s an additional 14 points exclusive to hybrid vehicles.

When it comes to ownership, the Toyota Certified Used Hybrid program offers the same benefits as the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program: a CARFAX Vehicle History Report, the availability of standard new car financing rates and one year of Roadside Assistance. After all, even a Toyota Certified Used Hybrid vehicle equipped with environmentally minded technology carries the same responsibility for reliabiliy as any other Toyota we sell. How’s that for peace of mind?
