Toyota Sells it’s Five-Millionth CPO Vehicle
It’s a good week for Toyota. Toyota has successfully sold it’s five-millionth Certified Pre-Owned Toyota vehicle in the United States. Five million Certified Pre-Owned vehicles is more than any other automaker has sold since the certified used vehicle program came about decades ago. The five-millionth Certified Pre-Owned vehicle was a 2013 Toyota Highlander, purchased by the Wenzel family at Toyota of Huntington Beach (California).
Toyotas have a high consumer demand for quality, dependability, and long-term reliability. This remarkable milestone exemplifies both Toyota’s CPO program’s effectiveness, but also the high demand for consumer needs. Toyota’s CPO program first launched in the year of 1996. In order for a vehicle to be considered certified, it must pass 160 inspection points. These inspection points include interior and exterior condition and appearance; engine performance; transmission and transaxle operation; braking, tire and suspension system wear; and much more. Toyota hybrid vehicles must pass 174 inspection points.
The cost of the Wenzel’s 2013 Toyota Highlander was completely covered by Toyota, as a celebration of their five-millionth CPO vehicle sold. Toyota also donated $10,000 to the Family Promise of Orange County charity, as well as an additional $5,000 donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Congratulations to the Wenzel family!
