It stands to reason that the better a product is made, the longer it will last. And that makes getting a high-quality, low-mileage Toyota at a great price a savvy move.
Toyota’s timeless commitment to quality, innovation, and durability are the foundation upon which the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV) program launched in 1996. The TCUV program has gained momentum with each passing year and totals over five million sales today.
With industry-leading heritage comes another advantage: an exceptional coverage policy. With a 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty, 1 a 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, 2 a 24 Hour Roadside Assistance for 7 years/100,000 miles, 3 it’s honored at more than 1,400 Toyota dealers in the U.S. and Canada including our used car dealership in Birmingham, AL.
Our certification process keeps you in mind at every step. The TCUV standards apply from when a Toyota dealer acquires the vehicle 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. Before the rigorous 160-point inspection, every certified Toyota goes through a CARFAX vehicle history report to ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of approval.
Shoppers may be leery of buying used cars for sale in Birmingham, AL, and Toyota’s certified pre-owned program is designed to address and alleviate those fears. The 160-point inspection includes emissions and state inspection along with an expert examination of each vehicle’s:
•Fuel cell components
•Interior and exterior condition
•Audio and alarm systems
•Engine coolant and HVAC system
•Frame, structure and underbody
•Instrument panel and electronic systems
•Tires and suspension
•Trunk compartment and spare tire
Following the inspection, the Toyota-trained technicians at our car dealership in Birmingham will complete any necessary repairs and reconditioning to give each certified pre-owned vehicle a new car look and feel.
