There are a wide range of reasons why drivers in Langhorne and beyond might have some hesitation towards buying a used car. Aside from potential for dated looks, the biggest one we often hear about is reliability. After all, when you purchase a used car, it's already been subject to a fare amount of wear and tear from its miles of use. Team Toyota, however, is here to tell you that when it comes to buying used, you have nothing to worry about.
Specifically, Consumer Reports conducts a used car reliability survey every year, and the organization has noted that "even the least reliable car makers are gaining ground on the perennial reliability leaders,"1 in recent years. In fact, Consumer Reports even goes as far as to state that nearly every automaker has made some form of improvement in terms of reliability when compared to previous iterations that were entered into the report.
For consumers, this means less unexpected trips to service or repair a used car that they've only recently bought. Rather, drivers will get by just fine with routine maintenance and oil changes, both of which we're staffed to handle.
Of course, we're guessing you'd still like to know who some of the leaders are in the Consumer Reports "Used-Car Survey" are, right? Honda and Toyota topped the list with a roughly 80-percent reliability rate. Other automakers that acme in a close second were Subaru, Nissan, and Mazda. The automaker that made the biggest improvement in reliability in recent years? That would be Volvo, according to the report.
Team Toyota hopes that the information from the Consumer Reports "Used-Car Survey" helps you feel more comfortable when making the decision to finance a used car.
