The classics are a good deal now, with the long waits on the 2004.badu said:Has anyone bought a classic as a used car? What is the life expectancy of the classic? What are somethings to look for? Is the Toyota certified warranty worth paying extra? Thanks for your advice.
Be sure to get all maintenance records with a used car, especially if it still has remaining warranty left. You don't want to find out that something failed because the previous owner did not do maintenance on schedule, and warranty service on that failure is denied because it is a failure to do maintenance, not a manufacturing defect. Note also that if there are no records, you'll have to do "catch up" maintenance at additional expense.mrv said:In the US (and I assume elsewhere), all warranties transfer over. 3/36k bumper-to-bumper, 8/100 hybrid system, 5/60 powertrain, etc. Same goes for the 3 year/36000 mile free Toyota Roadside Assistance/Tire&Wheel road hazard warranty, and the free first 5 regularly scheduled services (out to 30 months/37,500 miles).
