Why Buy Certified Pre-Owned

Certified pre-owned cars occupy a great middle ground between new and used cars. So, why buy certified when you’re looking for your next vehicle? Ron Hibbard Toyota explains what these vehicles are and what they can offer drivers near Nashville, Gallatin, and Madison. Be sure to contact us to today to learn more.

What Is A Certified Pre-Owned Car?

For a used vehicle to be certified pre-owned it must have been made in the last six years, have less than 85,000 miles on it, and be in excellent condition.

Once it meets the age and mileage requirements, a team of factory-trained Toyota technicians will inspect the CPO vehicle. They’ll conduct a thorough 160-point quality assurance inspection where they’ll look over every part, system, and accessory to make sure the vehicle looks and runs like new.

Advantage of Buying Certified Pre-Owned

After a vehicle has been certified pre-owned, a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ is put together with the vehicle’s full background. This report is free and comes with every certified pre-owned model. Inside you’ll find detailed information on its full service and maintenance history, plus a profile of its previous owner.

On top of knowing everything about the car you’re interested in before you buy, certified pre-owned vehicles offer lots of perks. For examples, each model comes with some great warranties, such as:

  • 12-month/12,000-miles Limited Comprehensive Warranty
  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty
  • 1-year Roadside Assistance

With this kind of coverage, a full profile on the vehicle’s background, and like new quality for less, buying a certified pre-owned car is an excellent option.
