The decision to purchase a vehicle counts as one of the most significant purchases that we make in our lifetimes. Not only does it represent a major financial milestone, but, as well-informed buyers, we’re likely to have performed our fair share of due diligence beforehand. Considering how much money, time, and energy we invest in the overall process, it seems fair that we have certain expectations. We expect to be satisfied with our purchase, and we expect certain assurances as to a vehicle’s reliability. So it’s of little surprise that so many savvy buyers choose to invest in a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned car, crossover, SUV, or truck. But what is the ‘Toyota Certified Advantage,’ and what exactly does the Toyota Certified program consist of?
The privilege of Toyota Certified status isn’t extended to every pre-owned Toyota vehicle. Just to be considered a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, a vehicle must first meet some basic criteria. It must have been manufactured within the last seven years, and have been driven fewer than 85,000 miles. It must also have a clean and incident-free vehicle history report. These conditions help to ensure that Toyota CPO vehicles meet certain expectations as to wear, maintenance history, and potential longevity. To confirm the likelihood of long-term reliability, a much closer examination would be required. Which brings us to the rigorous inspection.
Even if a pre-owned Toyota meets the criteria cited above, it still needs to offer assurance of dependability. This is why all Toyota CPO vehicles must undergo a rigorous 160-point inspection performed by Toyota Certified Technicians. Covering all major components and operating systems, the inspection addresses any concerns a discriminating buyer might have. Any parts of systems that fail to meet Toyota’s exact standards may disqualify the vehicle from consideration, but if only minor fixes are needed, they may simply be refurbished, repaired, or replaced. Either way, those pre-owned Toyotas that pass with flying colors are now eligible for Certified status.
There’s even more to the ‘Toyota Certified Advantage’ that’s deserving of exploration.
Expanding on the assurances offered above, Toyota offers two extended warranties to increase the value of its CPO offerings. The first is a Limited Comprehensive Warranty lasting 12-months / 12,000-miles (whichever comes first) which covers any repair or replacement of components which fail under normal use due to defect in materials or workmanship. The second is a Limited Powertrain Warranty lasting 7-years / 100,000-miles.
24-Hour Roadside Assistance
While all Toyota CPO vehicles provide an assurance of dependability, there is some reassurance to be found in the offer of 24-Hour Roadside Assistance (‘just in case’ anything happens). Toyota offers this at no charge for the first years of ownership, and the service includes a number of value-added services. From jump starts to lockout service, emergency fuel (up to 3 gallons), and towing to the nearest Toyota dealership or service center, there’s a lot to like about this perk.
Each of these, combined with the availability of special finance terms, makes the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program one of the most competitive of its kind. If you’re considering the purchase of a pre-owned vehicle, why settle for verbal assurances? By choosing Toyota Certified Pre-Owned, you’re all-but guaranteeing yourself the satisfaction you deserve.
