vehicle that only a Toyota factory-backed certification program can offer. Since its inception, TCUV will sell its 5 millionth certified vehicles later this year. All TCUV vehicles undergo
a 160-point quality assurance inspection, including mechanical and appearance reconditioning.

TCUV also offers 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. You can
choose your TCUV at over 1200 participating Toyota dealers. The TCUV program combines the confidence of purchasing a new vehicle with the value of a used vehicle to provide a “like new”
ownership experience. Toyota certified used vehicles offers a smart alternative to traditional used car options and gives you the peace of mind you seek in a used vehicle. Make your next
vehicle purchase a Toyota – known for legendary quality, dependability, and reliability.
