Wide Selection to Choose From

One of the greatest benefits of buying a used car is that you’ll have a larger inventory to choose from. In addition, you can look at and test drive a variety of different makes and models in one place, rather driving from dealership to dealership.

More variety means you’ll also have a higher likelihood of finding a model with the specs and features within your price range.

Vehicle Reviews

After a new vehicle is released, it takes time for vehicle reviews to be written. When you buy a used car, you’ll have the benefit of reading lots of different vehicle reviews and using them to compare your favorite models before making your final decision.


As automotive technology continues to improve year after year, cars are designed to last longer and longer, making used cars even better investments. When you buy a used, most of the time, any recalls have already been addressed.


Along with having more options to choose from and vehicle reviews to read, used cars are more affordable than brand-new ones. Setting a target price range before conducting your used car search can help you narrow down a model that best suits your unique lifestyle in every category.

In addition to costing less up front, if you choose to finance a used car, auto loans can be easier to qualify for and their interest rates potentially lower. If your credit score isn’t as high as you’d like it to be or you’re a first-time car shopper, a used car can offer more options for sliding into the driver’s seat.

Advantages of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car

On top of traditional used car options, you also have Toyota Certified Used Vehicles—also known as certified pre-owned (CPO) models—to choose from. These models come with even more advantages that can give you greater peace of mind.

They’re no more than six years old and have fewer than 85,000 miles on their odometers. Additionally, they must pass detailed 160-point vehicle inspections to earn this coveted title and include the following benefits:

  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™
  • 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranties
  • 12-month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranties

Reading a vehicle history report and knowing you have warranty coverage as soon as you slide into the driver’s seat can help you to move forward with confidence.
