Why Buy a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

What Does Toyota Certified Mean?

The Toyota Certified Used selection at Peterson Toyota of Sarasota is better than ever, and we’re happy to introduce this exclusive program. Combining the Toyota Certified Warranty, Toyota Roadside Assistance, new car financing rates, and an extensive 160-point inspection, you’ll get many of the benefits of a new car at a lower price. On top of that, Toyota has recently extended the warranty coverage from the date of the purchase rather than the model year. Explore the benefits of the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program below, or take a look at our Toyota CPO inventory today!

Benefits of Buying a Toyota CPO Model

When you choose a Toyota Certified Used model, you’re getting more than just a recent Toyota with up to date features and low mileage. You’re getting a car that’s passed the following rigorous qualifications:

  • All Toyota CPO vehicles must pass a 160-Point Quality Assurance Inspection. This includes the braking system, powertrain, transmission, and more.
  • We review the vehicle’s CARFAX vehicle history report to make sure there are no significant issues with the car.
  • To be eligible, the car must have less than 85,000 miles on the odometer and be less than six years old.

What Is the Toyota Certified Warranty?

One of the highlights of the Toyota CPO program is its extensive warranty. Toyota has now extended the coverage to start at the purchase date of the CPO vehicle and not the model year or new vehicle sale date. These two warranty programs offer the following benefits:

  • 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Warranty
    • Covers repair or replacement of components that fail due to a defect in materials or workmanship while under normal use.
    • Highest level of coverage available.
    • Can be transferred to the next owner at no cost.
  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty
    • Covers transmission parts, engine parts, and all internally lubricated components.
    • Includes travel protection which reimburses you for lodging and meals if your car breaks down more than 150 miles from home.
    • Provides substitute transportation reimbursement while your Toyota is being serviced.
    • Can be transferred to the next owner at no cost.

What Is the Toyota Roadside Assistance Program?

The Toyota Roadside Assistance program covers your car for one year starting on the date you purchased the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle. If any of these problems occur, you’re covered:

  • Flat tire
  • Dead battery
  • Out of fuel
  • Locked out of the car
  • Any problem that requires towing

If your car does requires towing, you’ll be reimbursed for the tow to the nearest Toyota dealership. If you require help, simply call 1-800-747-2128 to speak to a highly trained representative.
