Used Toyota Sedans for Sale in Smithfield, RI
There’s a reason why you see the Toyota Corolla, Camry, and Avalon on the road so often: it’s because these highly dependable four-doors are the ultimate representation of the practical sedan class. For the everyday driver who doesn’t require excessive cargo space or more than five seats, sedans are perfect for getting you around with noteworthy fuel efficiency and no nonsense. Sometimes, though, it’s just not feasible to buy a brand-new car. That said, there are plenty of used models in great condition that are waiting to give new owners many more years of reliable transportation.
Used Vehicle Pricing
Once a vehicle’s first owner drives it off the lot for the first time, its valuation goes down: it’s new but no longer brand-new, and so it can’t command top pricing anymore. And while it will be some time before that new vehicle is back on the market as a used offering, when it returns it’s likely to be a great buy for the driver with practical priorities.
Let’s look at a 2020 Corolla compared to a 2017. The MSRP of a brand-new 2020 LE trim level is $20,050, but the same base trim from three model years ago can be found for well under $15,000 with less than 40,000 miles on the odometer. Maybe you’re more interested in a midsized used Toyota sedan. While the MSRP of a 2020 Camry SE is $26,170, while a 2017 of the same trim can be found in the range of $15,000 to $16,000 in the ballpark of 35,000 miles. For the driver who prefers a bit of size and luxury, the Avalon should do the trick. With the MSRP of a 2020 XSE (the topmost trim) being $38,375, it can be out of some people’s budget; however, it’s not impossible to find a very gently used 2019 for less than $30,000 with an odometer reading below 10,000.
Toyota Certified Used Vehicles
Some people find buying a used car to be nerve-wracking because they don’t know what’s happened in that vehicle’s past. This is more common with private sales with individuals who may not be transparent about their car’s history. The best way to avoid this is by shopping for a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV). With a TCUV, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing each vehicle has been thoroughly vetted and reconditioned, and held to a higher standard than your traditional secondhand vehicle.
In order for a Toyota to qualify as TCUV, it needs to pass a rigorous 160-point inspection process administered by Toyota-certified technicians, who will then recondition the vehicle as needed using genuine Toyota parts. After it is approved for certification, it gets two factory-backed warranties: a 12-month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranty and a 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. Buyers also get a complimentary CARFAX vehicle history report and one year of 24-hour roadside assistance.
