Benefits of Certified
The actual definition of a certified pre-owned vehicle differs depending on the automaker, Toyota certified pre-owned vehicles must meet a very certain set of criteria. If you purchase a Toyota certified pre-owned vehicle from Toyota of Downtown LA you are guaranteed that it has less than 85,000 miles on the odometer, and is only a current model or six model years back. Of course, that is just the start of this exhaustive process. To be a part of the factory-backed, Toyota Certified Pre-owned Program, which is honored at over 1,400 Toyota dealers across North America, a vehicle must pass a number of rigorous tests. The first of these is the exhaustive 160-point quality assurance inspection, which includes mechanical, detailing, and appearance standards. Some of these points include checking the braking system, emissions and state inspection, lighting systems, tire and suspension system, engine quality, exterior condition and appearance, safety systems, and so much more. All of this work is done by factory-trained Toyota Technicians in our service department. You will also have the assurance of a CarFax Vehicle History Report and Buyback Guarantee that provides a complete vehicle history including recall information, accident indicators, service record, usage, odometer readings, and Lemon history.
When it comes to protection, all certified pre-owned Toyota vehicles come with an impressive array of warranties. First is the 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive warranty, which covers any repair or replacement of components that fall under normal use due to a defect in materials or workmanship. There is also a fully transferable, seven-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty that covers major engine, transmission components, and all internally lubricated parts. We will also provide substitute transportation reimbursement during any repairs. Finally, there is one full year of roadside assistance, which covers services like flat tires, lockouts, jump starts, fluid delivery, and towing for mechanical breakdown. To access this service, you can call a Toyota service provider, toll-free, 24-7-365.
