Then, each vehicle is subject to an intensive 160-point Quality Assurance Inspection, which includes mechanical, detailing, and appearance standards. These strict standards ensure that only the best of the best vehicles receive the Toyota Certified Seal of Approval.

What is a Vehicle History Report?
