One has to know the vehicle’s condition and service history to have a better grasp of the used car for sale. Aside from that, you need to make sure that the pre-owned vehicle has complete documents, updated registration, looks presentable, among many others. 

Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) wants to simplify the process when buying a second-hand car. To do just that, TMP has relaunched its pre-owned vehicle program that aims to let you drive home a used Toyota car hassle-free and worry-free.   

Now called “T Sure, Toyota Quality Pre-Owned Cars” or simply T-Sure, the said program intends to offer second-hand Toyota vehicles that don’t compromise quality, value, and safety. 

TMP senior vice president for marketing Masatoshi Toiya explained that the “T” stands for Toyota while “Sure” denotes trustworthiness. The new program name reflects what TMP is aiming for when it comes to catering to individuals who are shopping for a pre-owned vehicle. It also wants to address the concerns that used car customers are usually encountering.

The T-Sure program has a systematic operation for assessment, refurbishment, pricing, certification, and warranty to ensure the quality of vehicle condition of every unit.

It offers six key factors that are tailored to make the used car buying experience better, simpler, and worry-free. TMP said during the press conference and media roundtable that the T-Sure program promises to deliver the following:

- High-quality standards

- Transparent and honest vehicle condition

- Worry-free ownership transfer

- Wide product range with Fair Price and Affordable Payment

- Ready supply in Toyota dealer network nationwide

- One-stop shop for Toyota’s products and services

To be able to deliver on its promise, T-Sure ensures that all pre-owned Toyota vehicle for sale has passed the car brand’s quality standard. All pre-owned Toyota vehicles need to pass a 211-Point Inspection, which is one of TMP’s requirements to certify that a vehicle can be placed under the T-Sure program.

TMP dealers with the T-Sure program conduct a series of inspections that includes Frame Inspection; Exterior and Interior Inspection; Vehicle Functionalities Inspection; among others. 

The T-Sure program also pits all pre-owned Toyota vehicles for an engine and transmission diagnostics test. This is done to make sure that the used vehicle has no mechanical issues.  

Aside from the inspections and diagnostics, the T-Sure program also refurbishes all pre-owned Toyota vehicles to improve the quality rating of each unit. All vehicles undergo Body and Paint (BP) repair as well as periodic maintenance.

Once the unit is done with the BP repair and maintenance, it will then be given premium auto detailing. This gives the pre-owned car an even fresher look.  

T-Sure even gives a warranty for pre-owned Toyota vehicles for sale. A maximum of a 1-year warranty on engine and transmission is available, depending on the unit’s odometer mileage and age.  

In addition, packages from Toyota Insure and After Sales Service, tailor-fit to the needs of pre-owned car customers, may be availed on top of the purchased T-Sure unit.
