Imagine buying a used car, only to get a check for the entire purchase price! That's what happened to a New Jersey 20-year old earlier this month. Wayne Maver Jr. bought a 2019 Toyota Camry through the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV) program at Holman Toyota. And wasn't just any 2019 Camry, either. It was the 7 millionth TCUV sold. To celebrate, Toyota presented Wayne Maver Jr. with a check for the total purchase price.
The dealership and automaker also made a $5,000 donation in his name to the American Bladder Cancer Society, an organization dedicated to raising awareness of bladder cancer and advocating for research into a cure, treatment, early diagnosis and quality of life issues of survivors.
“I wasn’t expecting anything like this,” Maver said during the check presentation. “I purchased this Camry because of its reliability, and I knew it would last a long time. Now knowing I don’t have a car payment is just incredible, especially as I’m just starting my career. I have an uncle that battled bladder cancer, so Toyota making the donation to the American Bladder Cancer Society means as much to me as paying off my Camry.”
Maver also received a $1,000 gas card from CarFax and a four-year/55,000-mile maintenance plan.
“We were incredibly proud to be a part of this milestone for Toyota and continue the legacy of leadership in the Certified Pre-Owned industry, as well as have an opportunity to give back to our local community,” said Michael Schwab, general manager of Holman Toyota. “This is a testament to the value and reliability of Toyota vehicles and our commitment to delivering the very best for our customers.”
Toyota launched its TCUV program in1996. The used certification process includes a rigorous 160-point quality assurance inspection, including interior and exterior condition and appearance; engine performance; transmission and transaxle operation; braking, tire and suspension system wear; and electronic system operation. This also includes added hybrid and fuel cell component coverage.
Vehicles sold with the TCUV designation come with a 12-month/12,000-mile limited comprehensive warranty, seven-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and seven years/100,000 miles of Roadside Assistance.
