Toyota certified used sales unaffected by recalls, Prius still desirable
It would not be a stretch to believe that the companies current problems would affect certified used car sale – it might even be expected. However, the numbers don't lie and certified sales have fared no worse than other automakers. By the numbers, Toyota sold 18,383 certified used cars in February, leading the way over second place Honda and third place Chevrolet. Overall, Toyota dropped 7.2 percent for February in the certified category, but most other automaker displayed a similar decrease.
How did the Prius fare? Individual model results have not been reported, but the Prius is a major contributor to Toyota's overall certified vehicles sales and if the Prius plummeted, Toyota wouldn't likely be capable of holding a commanding lead over its competitors.
