Advantages of Toyota CPO | Toyota of Goldsboro

Toyota has been proven to produce quality vehicles and Toyota consistently wins recognition for performance and safety. Toyota vehicles are well-built and therefore retain their value well. When a brand new Toyota seems out of reach, perhaps a Certified Pre-Owned Toyota would be the appropriate choice. Toyota started the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program in 1996, and it has been growing ever since.

Toyota CPO Certification
To qualify for the Certified Pre-Owned program, the car in question can be the current year model up to six years old. There must be 85,000 miles or less on the odometer. Then a CARFAX report is reviewed carefully.

Toyota CPO Inspection
Once the vehicle meets age, mileage and CARFAX requirements, it will be thoroughly inspected by factory-trained technicians. The inspection is intensive requiring a minimum 160 points to be checked including mechanical, detailing and appearance points. The technicians are required to complete any necessary repairs or reconditioning that was deemed needed by the Quality Assurance Inspection. The goal is for the car to perform and look like new before being certified. Each certified vehicle comes with a CARFAX Vehicle History Report.

Toyota CPO Warranty
Each Toyota that has passed inspection to become a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle also comes with a used car warranty. This warranty is an extension of the original factory warranty. Having the warranty protects drivers in the event of a breakdown or mechanical failure. A 12 month/12,000 mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty begins the day the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is purchased. It covers the repair or replacement of parts that fail under normal use because of faulty materials or faulty workmanship. This warranty is transferable. Beginning from the purchase date of the vehicle or 100,000 total miles is a 7 year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. It covers major engine and transmission parts as well as internally lubricated components. If something happens more than 150 miles from home, this part of the warranty will help with lodging, meals and even transportation while the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is being repaired. There is 8 year/ 100,000 mile coverage for certain parts of a Hybrid as well as an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty for fuel cell parts. Additionally, there is one year of Roadside Assistance coverage starting the date the Certified Pre-Owned car is purchased. This service is available 24/7, 365 days a year, and it include reimbursement of towing when the car is towed to the nearest Toyota dealership.
