TCO launches first Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Section in Mindanao
Toyota Cagayan de Oro formally launched Wednesday, 18 December, the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Program or (TCPOV) in Cagayan de Oro.
Toyota Cagayan de Oro (TCO) is the first Toyota dealer in Mindanao to open its Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Section. TCPOV was launched by Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) to its dealers April, 2012 with 3 pilot dealers in Luzon and Visayas and was rolled out to other Toyota dealers only this year.
The TCPOV guarantees that a used Toyota vehicle meets the standard Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle requirements specified by Toyota Motor Philippines.
Before a pre-owned unit can be tagged as “Toyota Certified,” it must undergo a rigorous testing process. Besides a thorough 203-point inspection process, the vehicle is examined with the latest and most advanced technology by the company’s authorized assessors who have undergone extensive training under a Toyota Motor Corporation Specialist. Not the least, these vehicles are checked and conditioned by highly trained dealer technicians and comes with one year limited warranty for the customer’s peace of mind.
“You, our customers, when buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is assured of its quality, durability and reliability,” said Peter U. Limlosuy, executive vice president and general manager, TCO, in his message during the launch. “Before a pre-owned unit can be tagged as “Toyota Certified”, it must first pass a thorough 211-point inspection process by our certified assessor.”
“Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is also designed to give you, our customers, a high level of assurance and trust that when you sell or trade-in your Toyota vehicles we commit to give you the best value of your Toyota vehicle. TCPOV program also establishes a transparent process which offers you the right price for your Toyota,” he added.
The TCPOV program also offers customers a fair trade- in value. The process of trading-in their current Toyota to purchase a brand new vehicle makes the whole experience more convenient for customers.
In a statement, TMP President Michinobu Sugata said that “In launching the new TCPOV program, we aim to reward our customers for all the years of support. With this new service we are able to practice the “customer for life concept” where in the process from buying, to replacing a vehicle will be made available in a one-stop shop facility. We at Toyota are very excited to be able to find new ways to provide our customers a more convenient purchasing experience and peace of mind with Toyota’s Sure Advantage.”
