Here at Tuscaloosa Toyota, we believe the best new cars make the best-used cars. It stands to reason that the better a product is made the longer it will last, which makes getting a high-quality, low mileage Toyota at a great price a very savvy move. Because of the exceptional quality of Toyota vehicles, many of them will live on for years as a used vehicle. The best of these pre-owned vehicles become Toyota Certified Used Vehicles in Tuscaloosa AL.
Toyota’s timeless commitment to quality, innovation, and durability is the foundation upon which the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program launched in 1996. With each passing year, the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program has gained momentum – totaling over three million sales and counting. Every Toyota Certified Used Vehicle at Tuscaloosa Toyota comes with a series of warranties and other programs to support the owner. All in all, the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program at our dealership is designed around the idea of bringing people the best possible pre-owned cars on the market.
Our certification process keeps you in mind every step of the way. The Toyota Certified Used Vehicles standards apply from the time a Toyota dealer acquires the vehicle through to the final sale. Each candidate for certification can be a current model year vehicle, up to and including six-year-old models, with 85,000 miles or less on the odometer. Prior to the rigorous 160-point inspection, every certified Toyota goes through, a CARFAX vehicle history report is reviewed to ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of approval.
All vehicles can become used vehicles, but not all become Toyota Certified Used Vehicles at Tuscaloosa Toyota. During the 160-point inspection, a qualified member of our service department will look at every major component, including the engine, transmission, brakes and fuel system. The same level of scrutiny is applied during an inspection of the interior of the vehicle as well, where a technician will look for elements that need to be refreshed, refurbished or replaced. Anything that can’t be repaired to the level of the strict Toyota Certified Used Vehicles standards, whether in the interior on for the mechanical components, will cause the entire vehicle to be rejected from the program.
Along with the industry-leading heritage of Toyota vehicles comes another advantage: an exceptional coverage policy. With a 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty, a 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty plus one full year of Roadside Assistance, honored at more that 1,400 Toyota dealers in the U.S. and Canada, we’ve got you covered. Every Toyota Certified Used Vehicle is reconditioned to Toyota’s exacting standards by Toyota factory-trained technicians. Also, trade-ins are accepted for the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program.
