Why You Should Choose a Toyota for Your Used Car | Phil Gilbert Toyota

Money will undoubtedly be central to your decision, as will safety and reliability. For a lot of people, the name on the car is important too.

Lasting Value

In general, Toyota’s have amazing resale value. Even if you buy a used Toyota, chances are you’ll be able to trade it in or sell it years down the track and still get some decent return for your purchase. If you’re the type that likes to upgrade often, or if you just love a great deal, a used Toyota may be the choice for you.


Toyota was actually dubbed the world’s most reliable car, for eight years straight! While other brands manufacture cars with known faults and issues, Toyota has a reputation for quality. When you buy a used Toyota, you’re purchasing reliability. Chances are, the only time it’s going to see the inside of a mechanic’s workshop is when it is due for a service!
