Toyota is an industry leader in yet another category, the Toyota Used Car Certification Program. 5 million vehicles and counting have been sold under the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle Program since its beginning in 1996. Toyota Certified Used Vehicles undergo a 160-point quality assurance inspection, including mechanical and appearance reconditioning. Toyota Certified Used Vehicles come with the confidence of a 7-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, a 1-year, 24-hour roadside assistance plan, and a 12-month, 12,000-mile limited comprehensive used car warranty. 

Contents of Our Certified Toyota Inventory

As with how our new inventory features the latest Toyota models, our certified inventory only features models donning the famous Toyota trademark. That means that if it's a Toyota-branded sedan, SUV, or truck, you could see it under our certified pre-owned selection. With Toyota serving as such a diversified brand, this news is comforting for the range of customers we serve near Winston-Salem, NC. High-demand Toyota models that you could see in our certified inventory are the:

  • Toyota Corolla compact car
  • Toyota Camry midsize car
  • Toyota RAV4 compact SUV
  • Toyota 4Runner midsize SUV
  • Toyota Sienna minivan
  • Toyota Tacoma compact pickup truck

Steps to Become Certified Pre-Owned

Not every Toyota vehicle we carry onsite in Greensboro fits the requirements to become certified. There are a few strict guidelines that each Toyota model must adhere to before officially entering the inventory with fellow certified vehicles. For any used Toyota Camry to become certified, this sedan must:

  • Display under 85,000 miles on odometer
  • Be less than six years past current year
  • Pass 160-point quality assurance inspection
  • Include a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report

The quality assurance inspection goes the extra mile to prove that these certified vehicles, despite their pre-owned history, are still in excellent condition to produce reliable performance. This inspection involves digging under the hood, examining the interior, and taking the model out for a spin to doublecheck the drivability. Certified Toyota technicians perform these inspections because they know everything there is to know about the Toyota lineup.


Owner Benefits Behind Financing Certified Toyota

When customers near Kernersville buy a certified Toyota 4Runner, they already know they're getting peace of mind based on the 160-point inspection. However, that's not all the certified Toyota advantage provides shoppers around North Carolina. There are still a handful of perks that will make your ownership experience rewarding. These advantages push our certified pre-owned inventory to stand out from the used vehicles we sell. If you purchase a certified Toyota RAV4, you can expect:

  • One year of complimentary Roadside Assistance coverage
  • Limited Powertrain Warranty for seven years/100,000 miles
  • Limited Comprehensive Warranty for 12 months/12,000 miles

If the main reason you were hesitant about buying a used car was because of potential breakdowns or repairs, having included warranty protection on your certified Toyota will bring more confidence to your future driving experiences. If you have any questions about certified Toyota benefits, direct them to a Rice Toyota specialist before or during your visit.
