Toyota Introduces Its Certified Used Hybrid Program

images-9.jpgEveryone has heard of certified used cars, however, Toyota is going to introduce a certified used car program exclusive to hybrids. This will be the first program of its kind among carmakers.

Toyota is hoping that the added inspection and auto warranty will spike consumer confidence in pre-owned hybrid cars by guaranteeing that the cars receive a three-month/3,000 mile comprehensive auto warranty. In addition, the cars will have a limited powertrain warranty for seven-years/100,000 miles, a roadside assistance program and a detailed battery system inspection.

This will be huge for consumer confidence because some motorists fear that the battery life could become a big issue for hybrid vehicles. Toyota now provides an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty for its hybrid batteries.
