Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vs. buying used – what’s the difference? Calhoun drivers navigating the used car market may be unsure of which route to go. Consider this guide from Riverside Toyota!

Certified Pre-Owned Toyota Vehicles

There are many perks that go along with buying a Certified Pre-Owned Toyota. Some benefits include:

  • 160-point quality assurance inspection for certification, plus reconditioning by Toyota factory-trained technicians
  • Models that are 6 years old or newer and have less than 85,000 miles on the odometer, meaning a Toyota Corolla or a Toyota RAV4 in like-new condition
  • Access to the latest technology features, including the Toyota Safety Sense suite of advanced driver assistance systems
  • 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty coverage, along with a seven-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty from the initial date of sale
  • Fully transferable warranties
  • Available extended warranty coverage
  • One year of roadside assistance
  • CarFax vehicle history report including information on service, accident history, and more
  • Special Toyota financing rates

Used Toyota Models

There are quite a few items that set your typical used Toyota models apart from Certified Pre-Owned Toyotas. For one, there are no model year or mileage limits, meaning you’ll have a greater variety of options at many different price points. And the good news is, Toyota cars are known to be incredibly reliable, meaning you’re sure to find an older model with high mileage that still has a lot of life left in it. Otherwise, an average used Toyota model won’t necessarily come with warranty coverage, roadside assistance, or special financing rates. However, similar to Certified Pre-Owned Toyotas, you can trade in your current model at Riverside Toyota to offset the cost of your next car purchase!
