Well first I have to say I am super excited that I am about ready to purchase myself a 2009 Prerunner Reg cab. It is certified used but FAR away from me 1111 miles to be exact. It is reassuring knowing that it is backed by a great warranty, also it has stupid low miles, and itís basically a new truck. I am trying to make the dealership bend over backwards to answer my questions but I want to make sure that I cover everything. Has anyone purchased a certified used Toyota? It sounds great, longer warranty, and the 160 point inspection, any downside to it?
I started by asking about the truck, blah blah blah ok itís a Tacoma it has everything it should and it has very low miles, itís basically new--- great! I asked if they would replace the factory Dunlopís with A/Ts to make the sale-----nope but they took a few hundred bucks off----great now the price is right! Today I asked about the 160 point inspection. I want to know what services were performed and what if anything was replaced. We will see what I get for an email.
So my reason for this post, anyone have any bad experienced purchasing a Toyota Certified used vehicle? I did a search and sure a few people had problems with dealerships replacing parts with Non-Toyota parts, I would bitch too, but I canít go and look at the truck right now Iím 1111 miles away. Anything common? Am I over looking anything? The distance game sucks I wish I could go lay under this truck and pick it apart, Iím a very picky person and a meticulous mechanic. Prerunners do not exist in my area so I have to buy a truck far away from me. Thanks in advance.
