We built this reputation by gaining the community's trust through transparency, hassle-free sales, and more. Our vehicle lineup also includes some of the best-quality used cars for sale in Sherman Oaks, including plenty of pre-owned Toyotas that are backed by a stellar reputation for dependability. And we’ll get you in your next used Toyota with budget-friendly pricing and financing options that will get you out the door and on the road as fast as possible. All that and impressive customer service from our expert sales professionals make Capital Car Company a great place to buy a pre-owned Toyota.
New Toyotas are top-notch vehicles that can come at higher price points than other mainstream rides. But you can save thousands buying a pre-owned Toyota from Capital Auto Company without compromising quality. The used Toyotas on our lot have many of the same exact top-of-the-line equipment and features as a brand new vehicle, yet depreciation makes them more affordable for our customers. Depreciation reduces the value of a new car quite quickly, often taking off about 20% of a car’s value in its very first year. That means you can get a quality used Toyota in great shape from Capital Auto Company at a much lower price than a similarly equipped new one.
We also know there are other expenses to consider when buying a car, including insurance and additional ownership costs. That said, insurance policies for used cars can be much lower than for new ones — another benefit to buying one of the used cars for sale in Sherman Oaks.
As a special benefit from Capital Auto Company, we further provide rigorous safety inspections on all of our used Toyotas. This helps ensure you are getting the most bang for your buck while boosting your confidence.
When people think Toyota, they think hybrid technologies. Yet the brand also has much more to offer in premium features than just its variety of powertrains. For Toyota, connectivity, comforts, and driver-assistance systems are of key importance as well. This attention to detail makes Toyota's vehicles some of the most searched-after used cars for sale in Sherman Oaks and all of Southern California. (Note that equipment can vary by model and model year.):
Some of the top Southern California used cars for sale come from the Toyota brand, and many of those have found homes on the Capital Auto Company lot. Our team takes the time to study, research, and provide the used Toyotas that will best suit our audience in Sherman Oaks and beyond. You will find some of the key Toyota vehicles for this market below. That said, if nothing on our lot suits your needs, the team at Capital Auto Company is ready to find the specific Toyota model you want.
The Toyota Motor Company is built on family from the very beginning. It all started with an invention by Sakichi Toyoda that was an engine designed to make the automated weaving process easier. His son, Kichiro, saw that the engine could be well suited for the auto industry, and he set out to build the 1933 AA Sedan. This was the first vehicle sold under the “Toyoda” name, and it was an immediate success. The company’s name was later changed to “Toyota,” as the word had more positive meanings in the Japanese language.
The Toyota company made its first move to the United States in 1957, although it sold fewer than 300 vehicles to U.S. customers during that first year. Slow but steady growth followed, and the company’s cars really began taking off in the early 1970s, when customers began focusing more on the kind of small, efficient vehicles that Toyota was building at the time. By 1972, Toyota’s annual U.S. sales topped 1 million units, and the company became the top-selling import brand in the country in 1975 — a position it still holds today!
