By: Castlegar Toyota   |   04 May 2021

When shopping around for a vehicle, buying brand-new can come with numerous benefits and may seem like the obvious route. However, more and more individuals are beginning to see the advantages of buying pre-owned, especially if you've got your eye on a Toyota. Toyotas are known to be some of the most reliable, high-quality vehicles, and boast best-in-class safety and amazing warranty options. All these conveniences prove to be even more valuable if you're someone who's shopping used. At Castlegar Toyota, we offer only the best-in-quality used vehicles at the most affordable prices this side of the West Kootenays! In this post, we’ll give you a rundown of all the reasons why buying a pre-owned Toyota here at Castlegar is the right way to go!

Fact-checking a vehicle’s history before taking ownership is always a good idea. To provide Castlegar Toyota customers with peace of mind, anytime you purchase a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle it will come complete with an original CarFax® report. CarFax® provides you with a comprehensive list of vehicular information, including the history of ownership, accident reports, inspection records, current status, damage reports, and much more. If you're thinking of buying or selling CPO, a CarFax® report gives you the confidence you need to make an informed decision.
