Planning to buy a car because of the current public-transport issues we’re facing? There’s no shortage of deals right now. Toyota, for instance, has extended its latest sales promo till the end of June, allowing you to drive home a Supra after making a down payment of P735,800, if you so wish. It also recently launched a virtual showroom to make car shopping easy, safe, and convenient.

If you’re on a tight budget at the moment, however, and are looking into buying secondhand, that’s perfectly fine—the Japanese carmaker also has something for you via its Toyota Certified Used Car (TCUV) program.

“Recently, most of those who inquire from our TCUV dealers are commuters who regularly use public and mass transport to get to work or to carry out essential trips for their family’s needs,” said Gener Castillo, vice president for the value chain section of Toyota Motor Philippines. “This could mean there is increased demand for personal mobility among those who see having a car as a need, but would like a more affordable option and an easier way get financing approval without compromising quality, efficiency and safety.”

All vehicles in the TCUV program have undergone a 211-point inspection and certification procedure before being classified as ‘certified used vehicles.’ They also come with additional limited warranty and may be purchased via flexible financing terms offered by Toyota Financial Services.

TCUV units are currently being offered at the following Toyota dealers:
