There’s no doubt that buying a used car can save you money, but there’s also some risk involved with buying a used car, since it’s hard to know if the vehicle you’re considering is in need of costly repairs. As a result, a certified pre-owned (or CPO) vehicle may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Although certified pre-owned programs offer extra peace of mind, they aren’t all created equally, so we’re taking a look at Toyota’s program in today’s video.
Before a Toyota can be certified, it must meet several important requirements. One is age: It has to be no more than 6 years old, and it must have less than 85,000 miles on the odometer. It also goes through a 160-point inspection, and it must have no frame damage from a previous accident. If something isn’t up to Toyota’s strict standards, it gets repaired or replaced with factory-authorized parts.
A certified pre-owned Toyota comes with a comprehensive warranty for 12 months or 12,000 miles. The automaker also extends the original powertrain warranty to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the date of purchase. Toyota’s CPO warranty is fully transferable, but there is a $50 deductible per visit. Find a CPO Toyota for sale
