Are you in the used car market? You’re joining several thousands of others on the same mission: Secure a used car at a good price and in good condition. Lucky for you, Toyota of Fort Worth has your back. Not only do we supply a healthy stock of over 1,500 used and CPO models, but our salespeople are trained to provide excellent customer service. Honesty comes first before a sale — plus, we’re convinced of the quality of our models since each one is inspected and tested by our expert technicians. Have any questions? We’ve got answers. Read below some of the frequently asked questions that we receive from customers just like you!
Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) models tend to be forgotten when customers are shopping, but if you want quality that’s certified, start browsing! The difference between used and CPO models is stricter standards. Our technicians ensure each used vehicle that’s being considered for certification meets the brand standards set by the manufacturer. After meeting the age and mileage requirements, used vehicles must undergo a rigorous inspection. Necessary repairs are made, and once the used model gets its certification, customers enjoy an additional warranty.
Great question. According to J.D. Power, that magic number has changed! Throughout the years, cars have benefited from the many technological innovations that have changed industries from the ground up. Because of their efficiency, cars have longer life spans, which has increased the mileage considered “safe” or “good.” Most can cross that 200,000-mile threshold without experiencing major issues. Check the mileage against the number of owners and service records, and ask as many questions as you can!
Well, for one, you know you’re getting a good deal on your used car because you’re buying from us at Toyota of Fort Worth, but you should always do your research beforehand. Use Kelley Blue Book® or Edmunds to look up the trending prices on the specific make and model of your choice, and if you’re ready to part ways with your current ride, you’ll see a more favorable bottom line when you value your trade. Plus, ask us for a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ to see detailed service records.
That’s a great question to ask! Our team is convinced that buying from a private seller is always riskier than buying from a dealership. Private sellers can’t guarantee the quality of their vehicle, and in some cases, will even lie about it. But dealerships (like us) are legally obligated to disclose the condition of the vehicle. You can always find us if there’s a discrepancy — once you sell to a private party, you probably won’t ever see them again. Plus, dealers can offer incentives like special financing, monthly offers, why buys and more.
When you choose a used car for your next vehicle upgrade, you’re choosing a quality model at an affordable price. Used cars have already received their depreciation hit, whereas new cars will lose an estimated 60% of their original value within the first five years. You’ll find that parts for used cars will be cheaper (since they don’t have the technology updates that new cars receive), and your options will be much wider. Don’t be confined to just one year’s convenience or safety options — browse entire lineups spanning back to the year 2000 in our used inventory.
