Overview

The best new cars make the best used cars.
It stands to reason that the better a product is made the longer it will last, which makes getting a high-quality, low mileage Toyota at a great price a very savvy move.

Toyota’s timeless commitment to quality, innovation and durability is the foundation upon which the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV) program launched in 1996. With each passing year, the TCUV program has gained momentum – totaling over three million sales and counting.

Along with industry-leading heritage comes another advantage; an exceptional coverage policy. With a 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty1 a 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty2 plus one full year of Roadside Assistance3, honored at more than 1,400 Toyota dealers in the U.S. and Canada, we’ve got you covered.

Certification
Our certification process keeps you in mind every step of the way. The TCUV standards apply from the time a Toyota dealer acquires the vehicle through to the final sale. Each candidate for certification can be a current model year vehicle, up to and including six-year-old models, with 85,000 miles or less on the odometer. Prior to the rigorous 160-point inspection, every certified Toyota goes through, a CARFAX vehicle history report is reviewed to ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of approval.

Now how’s that for peace of mind?

Frequently Asked Questions

Can all Toyotas be Certified?

No. A Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV) must be a current model year Toyota, up to and including six year old models, and have 85,000 miles or less on the odometer. Each Toyota dealer is required to order a full CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ with results showing NO ineligible requirements. Then, each vehicle must meet or exceed all 160-points of our Quality Assurance Inspection. These strict standards ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of Approval.

What is a Vehicle History Report?

A Vehicle History Report (VHR) contains information that can impact a consumer’s purchase decision by disclosing potential risks that could result in costly repairs such as; major structural damage, previously declared a total loss, or any title or odometer discrepancies. At Toyota we save you time by requiring our dealers to run a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ (As of December 1, 2005, CARFAX® is the sole supplier of Vehicle History Reports for the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles program.) for each vehicle before it can be certified. By disqualifying any vehicle that includes ineligible requirements, the integrity of the Toyota Certified process is protected and you receive the peace of mind that comes with owning a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle.
