Toyota Scoops Two Auto Express Used Car Awards

19 April 2000

Auto Express has declared Toyota’s Auto Assured approved used car scheme as the best there is. The RAV4 was also awarded the title of best used 4X4 for the third consecutive year.

The Special Honour accolade awarded to the Auto Assured scheme recognised that Toyota has raised the standards of its used car warranty to new car levels. Auto Assured offers cover on approved used Toyota vehicles up to seven years old with no mileage restrictions.

The Auto Assured scheme includes, amongst other benefits, an RAC approved pre-delivery check, 12 months RAC roadside assistance, free one month/600 mile inspection, MOT test cover, vehicle mileage verification and a 14 day exchange plan if the customer is not entirely satisfied. Auto Assured helps bring a high level of reassurance to approved used car purchasers.

The RAV4, in its sixth highly successful year was chosen as the top vehicle in its class and beat other newer vehicles to be the ultimate used 4×4.

Used car ‘Bible’ Glass`s Guide said the RAV4 was “Ahead of its time when it was launched in 1994 and today its looks remain fresh. The versatility of both the three and five door versions has created a strong demand for all models.”
