Most people shopping for used Toyotas in Tempe are out to save some money, and you can indeed save thousands of dollars by buying a pre-owned model instead of a new one. You can thank depreciation for that since it can lower a car's value by 20% or more in just its first year on the road. The same car can then easily see a depreciation rate above 60% once five years have passed. However it’s actually good news when you buy used cars because it means you’ll see lower price tags based on their lower value. And that’s even when the used car is in great condition.
Speaking of which, the used Toyotas for sale at TAP 101 have all been mechanically inspected to meet not only our strict quality standards but yours as well. We also recommend checking out a Carfax or AutoSearch report for neutral third-party information about a used vehicle, including important details about past owners, previous service records, open recalls, and past accidents (if any).

After inventing an engine-powered automatic loom in the 1920s — even developing the engine itself — Sakichi Toyoda seemed to have his company on the fast track to success. However, his son, Kiichiro, wanted to take things in a different direction. Kiichiro engineered a car to fit around the company’s powerplants and thus was born the 1933 AA Sedan. It was the first vehicle to use the “Toyoda” name, although that was eventually changed to “Toyota” because the latter sounded better in Japanese. The automaking business proved so profitable that the Toyota Motor Company was launched as an independent entity.
Fast-forward to 1957, and Toyota was ready to make its mark on the U.S. auto industry. The starting point was the Toyota Crown sedan that sold all of 287 units in its first year in the United States. Needless to say, demand for Toyota models significantly increased over the years, so that the company’s overall U.S. deliveries topped the 1 million mark in 1972. By 1975, Toyota was the best-selling import brand in America. The company opened its first U.S. manufacturing plant roughly 10 years later and today is firmly established as one of the country’s most popular auto brands.
