Why It's Always Better to Buy a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle - Toyota Parts Blog

Toyota LogoWhen it comes to buying used cars, there’s always the worry about getting a lemon. One way to easily avoid this issue is to buy a certified used vehicle.

Purchasing a certified used vehicle comes with assurances. Typically, the dealership has thoroughly inspected the vehicle to ensure it hasn’t been in any accidents, and it is in good working condition. Certified used vehicles come with a warranty.

This helps to give you some peace of mind that the vehicle isn’t a lemon because it’s backed by a warranty.

When buying a certified used vehicle, it’s important to make sure that the manufacturer certifies it. Sometimes independent dealers will claim a vehicle is certified. Independent dealers typically have less stringent inspection guidelines. This means there could still be possible issues with the vehicle.

If you’re considering a Toyota, the manufacturer offers certified vehicles with:

  • A 160-point inspection
  • 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive warranty
  • 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty
  • 1 year of road side assistance
  • CARFAX vehicle history report
