Top 4 Reasons to Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Toyota

October 28th, 2021 by

Are you interested in a low-cost used Toyota but have some trust issues when it comes to used cars? Maybe you’re in the market for a new Toyota model but prefer a more affordable option? We have a solution that meets in the middle of this conundrum – Toyota Certified Pre-Owned. Unlike the typical used car that you’d buy from a private seller, certified pre-owned Toyota models have strict age and mileage limits, comprehensive and powertrain warranty and additional perks like 24/7 roadside assistance! Read on for more details on why buying Toyota certified could be perfect for you.


1. Save Money

One major benefit of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is that it’s cheaper than a brand new car without being heavily used. In many cases, buying CPO can be cheaper than buying used over the life of the vehicle since used cars typically have more frequent service needs and may need replacement parts sooner than you expect – and these costs add up quickly.

2. It’s a Solid New-Car Alternative

Understanding how a Toyota becomes certified makes it easier to understand what makes it a great option if buying a new Toyota just isn’t in the cards for you right now. To qualify for the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program, a Toyota must be younger than 6 model years with less than 85k miles. Once that is checked off, the vehicle must pass a rigorous 165-point quality assurance inspection, so that it retains like-new integrity before going on sale.

3. Toyota Certified Used Vehicle Warranty

Unlike your typical used car, a certified Toyota comes with a limited warranty at the time of purchase that covers repairs and replacement of any manufacturer-original parts installed by the manufacturer or dealer. This warranty lasts for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever is first. In addition, it comes with a 7-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty that covers repairs and replacement of components related to the engine, manual transmission, automatic transmission, axle assembly components and hybrid/alternative fuel components. You won’t find this kind of coverage and peace of mind with a private seller.


4. 24/7 Roadside Assistance

A big perk with a certified used Toyota is complimentary 24/7/365 roadside assistance, to help you out during a tough situation on the road. The Roadside Assistance perk expires either 7 years from the date of purchase of the certified Toyota or when the odometer reaches 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Covered situations include towing to the nearest Toyota dealership for mechanical breakdown or collision recovery, repairing or changing a flat tire (using your vehicle’s spare), jump starting a dead battery, lockout service and emergency fuel delivery (up to 3 gallons of fuel, no more than twice a month).
