TCUV Certification


Get More Out of Every Ride
Drive a Certified Pre-Owned Toyota

Naturally, better products last longer, and such is true for Toyota. As proved by their impressive lineup, the automaker has a firm dedication to automotive excellence and continues to build vehicles that last. It is for this reason that thousands of drivers choose to buy a new Toyota model every year. As you can imagine then, models that are regularly maintained and kept in ideal condition make outstanding used options in turn. Better still are Toyota Certified Used Vehicles which must abide by superior standards. Exceptional in quality, low in mileage, and offered at affordable prices, this selection makes a terrific choice for modern drivers.


Founded in 1996, the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle program (otherwise known as TCUV) was originally developed to provide more consumers access to owning a high-quality Toyota. As the years progressed, popularity for the program grew exponentially. In fact, the TCUV market has hit over three million sales and continues to rise. Of course, this success is unsurprising considering what the program involves.

Certification is a process whereby a used vehicle must pass a series of requirements. Only automobiles six years or under with 85K miles or less and a clean CARFAX™ Vehicle History Report are deemed valid. If it meets this prerequisite, a thorough 160-point inspection performed by a trained technician follows. During this process, it is mandatory that all mechanical components are in excellent working order. Should any problems be identified, they are then addressed via repairs or replacements. Exterior and interior aesthetic factors are also carefully reviewed. Once every aspect is analyzed, it is submitted to one final test drive.

As you can see, passing every tier of this assessment is quite a challenge, and only models of the highest quality can earn the Toyota Certified Seal of Approval.

Extended Coverage

Additional coverage is included along with the TCUV status. As a standard, certified models are bundled together with a 12-month/12K mile Limited Comprehensive Warranty1, a 7-year/100K mile Limited Powertrain Warranty2, plus one entire year of Roadside Assistance1. These extended benefits are honored at over 1,400 Toyota dealerships nationwide and in Canada.
