According to a recent study, sales of Toyota certified used cars as well as used vehicles from other manufacturers were increased, even to to 46 percents starting from 2000. Nice, yeah? Most people think that certified pre-owned cars are a great alternative to new vehicles. And that’s true. When we are talking about used cars, what does it mean? We are talking about pre-owned cars that are on sale by your local dealer and special guarantees that concern not only the starting “when new” coverage.
Pre-owned cars can be purchased with certain guarantees, that not seldom are promoted as “certified” but in fact, taking into account authority and expertise cars manufacturers themselves not provide so called guarantees. Truly, the terms “guarantees” or “warranty” may be disorted. Thus, such guarantees only prolong service contracts without which, as it seems, the customer can not do anything. What about Toyota certified used cars? This company doesn’t give an additional warranty. A truly guarantee offers coverage that is included in the first vehicle’s price.
Many buyers don’t appreciate such service contracts, because it often obligates buyers to pay for necessary repair, and then as a result of that refund check. It may cost to the customers from $50 to $400. Moreover, in this situation there always is a probability that the above company will not ensure the guarantees. Much better, when these obligations are taken over by the manufacturer. Such an alignment of things, and the customer can be sure, that Toyota certified used cars are certified truly. Besides that, almost always service contracts don’t take the objectionable inspection or unpleasantly repair procedures.
Here you may see some of the requirements for certifications:
- Until 8 years or 100,000 miles riding for Factory Hybrid Battery Warranty
- Until 7 years or 100,000 miles riding for Limited Powertrain Warranty
In both cases time must be regarded as the first day of the purchase.
So, much better to buy official used certified Toyota cars than vehicles that might be found on the private party or another such places. You should purchase cars, that were expected by its manufacturer. In this way you will be absolutely sure, that such vehicle is worthy of certification. On the other hand, such certified used vehicles are often more expensive than similar used cars from third-party insurance companies.
