When Oxnard drivers consider buying a used vehicle, they might be hesitant if they are concerned with the condition of the car and how that will affect its performance on the road. That’s why Ventura Toyota is happy to tell you that Toyota certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles can assure safe drives in Santa Barbara, as they have passed a rigorous inspection and must meet a strict set of requirements from the Original Engine Manufacturer (OEM). Learn more about what it takes for a Toyota vehicle to be certified and why you should buy a Toyota certified pre-owned car. 

Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Requirements

Not just any used Toyota cars can be certified. A Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCVU) must meet all of the requirements that Toyota has for its certified pre-owned program:

 

  • Current model year Toyota (up to and including six-year-old models)
  • 85,000 miles or less on the odometer
  • Full CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ 
  • Subjected to an intensive 160-point minimum Quality Assurance Inspection, including mechanical, detailing, and appearance standards 

 

Every TCVU comes with a full CARFAX® report at no additional cost, so you can know all about your next Camarillo ride. 

Why Buy a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Car?

In addition to your car passing a thorough inspection by a certified Toyota technician, why else should you buy a TCVU? Well, there is a buyback guarantee with the free CARFAX® report, so that will be an option even after you purchase the vehicle. However, if you do keep the TCVU, you can enjoy the following Toyota certified used benefits:  

 

  • 12-month / 12k-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty
  • 7-year / 100k-mile Roadside Assistance
  • 7-year / 100k-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty

 

With these benefits, you can keep driving on the road for a very long time to come. This is favorable for drivers who are on a tight budget and want to use the same vehicle for at least the next several years! View the benefits in full detail here

Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used Cars

You have probably heard the terms “certified pre-owned” and “used cars,” but what are the reasons for buying a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned car instead of any Toyota used vehicles? While used vehicles are mostly affordable and offer a wide variety of models, features, and styles to choose from, TCVUs offer more of a peace of mind with the guaranteed multi-point inspection and vehicle history knowledge. Paying a bit more for TCVU can be worthwhile since it is a great middle ground between buying a used vehicle and a new vehicle. Plus, when you shop at Ventura Toyota, you can use our used vehicle specials to save even more!
