Toyota-Certified-Used-Cars-BirminghamBuying a used car can be nerve-wracking. You never know what you are getting from private sellers and roadside lots. Forget your worries with a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle from Limbaugh Toyota. Toyota Certified Used Vehicles are part of a factory-backed, certified pre-owned program, which is honored at over 1,400 Toyota dealerships across the United States and Canada. Only the highest quality pre-owned vehicles become Toyota Certified Used Vehicles, and the advantages of owning one are comparable to buying a brand new car.

You will not find an old or overworked car among the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles. To be eligible for the program, a vehicle must have fewer than 85,000 miles on the odometer and be the current model year or six model years back. Once those requirements are satisfied, the vehicle must pass Toyota’s rigorous 160-Point Quality Assurance Inspection. This inspection covers every inch inside and out, from the engine compartment, battery system, and transmission, to the interior condition and appearance, lighting systems, and audio and alarm systems.

Toyota is confident in its Certified Used Vehicles, and it passes that assurance on to the buyer. A CARFAX Vehicle History Report is available for each Certified Used Vehicle. Certified customers are also eligible for standard new-car financing rates. Once purchased, a Limited Comprehensive Warranty lasts for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first, and covers any repair or replacement of components that fail under normal use due to a defect in materials or workmanship. A Limited Powertrain Warranty covers major engine and transmission components and all internally lubricated parts, and lasts for 7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Also, for the first year of ownership, Toyota includes 24-hour Roadside Assistance, including servicing flat tires, jump starts, towing, and emergency fuel delivery.

Take the uncertainty out of purchasing a used car. Buy a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle from Limbaugh Toyota in Birmingham, Alabama, and drive home with confidence.
