Used Toyota Cars Frequently Asked Questions

What is a full service history?

A full service history - something you should always look for when investing in a pre-owned car - is a written record of the services conducted by technicians on your vehicle. Such a record will offer service stamps in your logbook, so that you’re able to pass this on to the next owner of your vehicle as and when the time comes to sell.

Which used car should I buy?

Depending on your budget and specific requirements, the used car that you should buy will vary. With Toyota, you can be certain that the extent of the models is extensive, meaning there is something to suit everyone. And, with great reliability as standard, you can be confident of sourcing a model that won’t let you down. At Hodgson Toyota, we’re proud to have a collection of pre-owned models available from the manufacturer for you to discover and test drive. Take a look at the vehicles - ranging from the AYGO to the Prius - to learn more.

Are car service plans worth it?

When buying a used car, ensuring that it maintains prime condition for as long as possible is crucial. As such, taking out a service plan with the aftersales department at Hodgson Toyota may well prove a great investment. Take advantage of fixed price servicing over an agreed period and avoid any unexpected costs that may arise when the time comes to check your vehicle. You could well find yourself saving hundreds of pounds.

What vehicle has the cheapest insurance?

Smaller cars - and those with smaller engines - always tend to be the cheapest to insure. In the Toyota lineup, you’ll find that the Toyota Yaris is the most affordable, with the model falling into the Group 2 insurance bracket - the second cheapest of all.

Can I test drive a car?

Assuming you have a full driving licence, you will be able to join us for a test drive of any used car available. In instances where you’re unable to test drive, a member of our team will drive on your behalf.

What should my tyre pressure be?
