Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned: What's the Difference?

Click HERE for Reviews!

Take one look at the used inventory at Racine Toyota and you'll likely find yourself impressed by the sheer variety of models presented. From pre-owned Toyota cars, trucks, and SUVs, to used models from many other manufacturers, we have options galore.

You'll also likely notice that our inventory is split between two categories: certified pre-owned vehicles and regular used cars. While you're sifting through the options, we recommend keeping a few differences between these two subsets in mind.

Buying Used

Your standard used car is just that -- a vehicle with previous owner(s). The good news is that used cars at Racine Toyota are typically far from their twilight years. You can get yourself a quality vehicle with plenty of life left without the high price typically associated with brand-new models. In fact, buying used is a surefire way to find the lowest prices on vehicles in the area. However, you likely won't have the confidence of a factory-backed warranty.

Benefits of Buying Certified

Certified pre-owned cars are used vehicles that adhere to Toyota's own requirements for quality. Late-model year vehicles with low mileage and a single previous owner are eligible for certification. If the car passes a strict inspection, it's ready for the new designation. Every certified Toyota comes with a certified pre-owned powertrain warranty and a roadside assistance package.
