Maybe you've heard of certified pre-owned or CPO vehicles, and perhaps you're looking into a certified Toyota here at our dealership in Quincy, Illinois. If you're not too familiar with what a certified vehicle is or what benefits come with one, then let us introduce you to these nearly-new automobiles.
Here, we'll go over the differences between a certified pre-owned vehicle like a Toyota, and a regular used car, that may be a Toyota or any other make. Toyota's certified pre-owned car program goes by the name, Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV), and has been around since 1996.
It's important to remember that manufacturer CPO programs can vary greatly, as there are varying levels of multi-point inspections and extended factory warranties provided depending on the automaker. When it comes to regular used cars, there is no standardized inspection or reconditioning process, so it can be more difficult to know the true condition of the vehicle, but there are still many top-quality used cars out there, like the ones we offer for sale here at Shottenkirk Toyota.
Let's take a detailed look at the requirements and benefits of a TCUV, which you can then clearly compare to your typical used car you might find at various dealerships or used car lots.
