The Benefits of Buying a Certified Toyota

March 5th, 2015 by

MY12_PRC_ONE_PS_34FBuying a certified used Toyota is your best option when you need something you can depend on but saving money is a priority. To qualify as certified the vehicle must be five years old or less. As a result, they will have many of the safety features and extras that enhance the driving experience. These include everything from state of the art navigation systems to backup cameras.

For this reason, certified vehicles are an excellent choice for anyone who wants to take advantage of these features but who is on a tight budget. Another benefit that makes these vehicles a good buy is that they provide a dependable ride for you and your family.

Buying a Certified Toyota Offers Peace of Mind

The main benefit associated with buying a certified used Toyota is the peace of mind you’ll have each time you go for a drive. When you buy a used car, you don’t know for sure what type of condition it’s in and you very seldom get any type of warranty or guarantee with it.

When you sign the paperwork for a used car, you’ll sign a form that states you are buying the vehicle “as is”. If you discover something major wrong with the vehicle after leaving the car lot, there’s really nothing you can do about it. However, that’s not the case when you buy a certified vehicle.

You know you’re getting a dependable ride because:

  • You’ll receive a CARFAX report on your new, used Toyota
  • These vehicles are inspected and guaranteed to be in good shape
  • They come with a limited warranty

If you’re not sure if buying a certified vehicle is right for you, talk to a dealer here at South Dade Toyota to learn more about the benefits associated with these vehicles. It will also give you a chance to look over our inventory of certified used Toyotas to see the wide selection we have available.

Buying Tips

Certified used cars are a great deal but you still don’t want to buy the first vehicle you find. Do the proper research to make sure you’re getting a good deal by comparing different vehicles with the same mileage, accessories and overall condition. This way, you’ll have an idea of what the average price for these vehicles should be so you’ll know if the asking price is compatible.

Below are a few more tips that will ensure you’re getting a good deal:

  • Read the warranty and make sure you understand exactly what it covers
  • Ask for proof of the maintenance history
  • Always read the fine print and go over anything you don’t completely understand
  • Test drive the vehicle before you buy

To make sure the vehicle you want to purchase is a good buy, only consider vehicles backed by the manufacturer. This way, if you have a problem later, you know everything will be handled in a professional and timely manner.

Certified vehicles are a great buy for anyone that wants the benefits of having a new car without the new car price. You will pay a little more for these vehicles but considering all of the benefits, it’s well worth it.
