The total number of Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles Toyota has sold in the U.S. has now reached five million, more CPO vehicles than any other automaker since certified used vehicle programs began almost two decades ago. Toyota Certified Used Vehicles (TCUV), Toyota’s CPO program, was launched in 1996. For a used Toyota vehicle to be certified, it must pass 160 inspection points including interior and exterior condition and appearance; engine performance; transmission and transaxle operation; braking, tire and suspension system wear; and electronic system operation. Hybrid vehicles must pass 174 inspection points, with the added hybrid battery components. Vehicles sold with the TCUV designation come with a 12 month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranty, seven year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and one year of Roadside Assistance. To celebrate the CPO pinnacle achieved in late August, Toyota covered the entire $29,180 for a customer who purchased the five-millionth CPO Toyota - a 2013 Toyota Highlander from Toyota of Huntington Beach. Pretty slick imho.
