What Makes A Used Vehicle Toyota Certified?

For a pre-owned Toyota vehicle to gain Certified status, it must first undergo an extensive, 160-point quality assurance inspection—from its exterior and interior to the powertrain and all major mechanical components—ensuring it meets the same standards we apply to all the new vehicles coming out of the factory. If anything isn’t up to snuff, the parts in question will be replaced with genuine Toyota parts as the vehicle undergoes extensive mechanical and appearance reconditioning. Once it has passed this inspection it’s ready to hit the dealership’s used vehicle lot, after we fill up the tank of course—and this is where the perks really start for the prospective buyer.

Not only can you trust that you’re getting a quality, like-new Toyota, but you’ll also be getting it at a stellar price—with zero deductible. TCUV vehicles are also subject to special financing rates through Toyota Financial Services, meaning you’ll be getting the best deal possible by going through Lethbridge Toyota. Add in a CARFAX® Canada Vehicle History Report, a complimentary first oil and filter change (6 months or 8,000 km)*, and a 7 day (or 1,500 km)* exchange privilege, and you’ll have no shortage of confidence in your new Toyota Certified Used Vehicle.
