The Toyota Pre-Owned Certification Process and Why it Matters
A used Toyota is not the same as a certified, pre-owned Toyota. The team at Fernelius Toyota in Cheboygan understands this and stresses the importance of the Toyota Pre-Owned Certification process. The team at our family-owned-and-operated dealership knows the process by heart, as we’ve been serving Toyota car and truck drivers in Northern Michigan, Northeast Michigan, as well as the Upper Peninsula, since 2004.
Purchasing a high-quality, low-mileage Toyota vehicle at a great price is a smart move; everyone knows that the better a product is made, the longer it will last — and every Toyota is of the highest quality. The brand’s timeless commitment to quality, innovation, and durability are the foundation upon which the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV) program launched in 1996. With each passing year, the TCUV program has grown and gained momentum — to date, more than five million certified pre-owned Toyotas have been sold.
In addition to Toyota’s industry-leading heritage, another advantage of the program is an exceptional coverage policy:
- 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty
- 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty
- One full year of Roadside Assistance, honored at more than 1,400 Toyota dealers in the U.S. and Canada
Our certification process keeps you — a valued member of our Fernelius Family – in mind every step of the way. TCUV standards apply from the time a Toyota dealer acquires the vehicle through to the final sale. To qualify for certification, the vehicle cannot be more than 6 years old or have over 85,000 miles on the odometer. And, even before the rigorous 160-point inspection that every certified Toyota goes through, a vehicle history report is also reviewed to ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of approval.
