Today's automobile market is most definitely a buyer's market.
Actually it's already been that way for a while now, given the presence of so many new car brands from different countries around the world. Car companies are tugging at you, eager to let you try out the latest technologies on the latest cars, offering up amazing financing deals, discounts, and freebies, hoping that you'd take a chance and drive their cars.
What if you want a sure thing? What if you can own a car from the country's number one automaker, and drive a vehicle with no question marks with regards to the ownership experience?
For that, you turn to Toyota.
There are many ways to drive a vehicle with a proud T on the grille. The first is to try the showroom and look at the many models they have in store. From Wigo to Vios to Fortuner and beyond, there are many to choose from. But what if you're looking for something more affordable? Something that will give you that same peace of mind, but at more readily attainable prices?
For that, Toyota has something new in store: it's called the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle program, or TCUV, or simply Toyota Certified. And it could very well be the answer to your need for affordable and reliable mobility.
Let's take a look at what makes TCUV special, and potentially be the right option for you.
But wait: Second Hand?
Yes, all TCUV units are pre-owned Toyota models that have been traded in by customers.
When a loyal Toyota customer purchases a new car, sometimes they trade in their existing Toyota. And many of these customers have maintained a relationship with the brand for years, taking care of their cars so as to preserve their value, and give the next owner the peace of mind they themselves got when they first received their keys to their new Toyota.
Carefully curated by Toyota
Each Toyota Certified vehicle is a part of a carefully checked and curated collection of pre-loved vehicles.
When a customer intends to trade in his or her Toyota, the company's highly skilled assessors go over each vehicle meticulously. It's all very transparent to ensure that every Toyota Certified Used Vehicle is well and truly certified to be in good order, one that will make its next owner proud and at ease.
211 (not PM) is the key
The vehicle inspection process isn't just a matter of looking at the vehicle, but really going over the details that make a Toyota a truly reliable car. The assessment process involves a 211-point inspection program that thoroughly inspects the many different aspects of each vehicle.
From the paintwork, the bodywork, the under chassis, the engine, the cooling, the airconditioning, the electrical system, interior quality, so on and so forth, every Toyota Certified vehicle has to be vetted in order to ensure a great ownership experience for years to come.
And after the inspection process, the Toyota customer is given a fair value for their car, and they can happily drive away in their new Toyota from the showroom.
Where do you find Toyota Certified units?
The answer is simple: at the dealers.
If you're looking for a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle, you just have to ask your nearest Toyota dealer for the units they have in stock. From there, you can inspect the Toyota Certified they have so you can find one that fits your needs, your style, and your budget.
Affordable purchase options
One thing that worries many second-hand buyers is the perception that used vehicles have to be purchased on a cash basis. But that's not the case with Toyota Certified.
Being that the purchase will be at a dealership, there are financing options available for buyers of Toyota Certified vehicles. All you have to do is ask your friendly marketing professional how.
And yes, there is a warranty
Second-hand car sales are often on an as-is, where-is basis. Such a practice is common in the used car industry, but not for Toyota.
Every Toyota Certified Used Vehicle will come with a 12 month or 20,000-kilometer warranty that covers the engine and the transmission. That means more time enjoying a reliable driving experience, rather than worrying about maintaining the two most critical components of your car.
Whether you're looking to trade in your vehicle and upgrade to a new one or looking for an excellent example of a pre-owned vehicle from the country's biggest automaker, visit or call your nearest Toyota dealership and inquire about Toyota Certified Used Vehicles.

Whichever the case may be for you, TCUV is more than ready to accommodate your needs
