With their impressive reputation for quality, Toyotas aren’t your typical used vehicles and much the same is true with E-Z Way Auto Sales, which certainly isn’t your typical buy-here, pay-here car dealership. We do things differently, whether you prefer using our online Fast Lane shopping process and complete with our secure financing application, or coming to visit us at our clean and friendly showroom. Naturally, we also have some of the best used Toyotas for sale in Hickory, including many of the brand's bold trucks and SUVs. That’s why so many shoppers do things the E-Z Way!
Toyota quality does come with a price, but at E-Z Way Auto Sales, it's one that will fit your budget. The used Toyotas for sale in Hickory are usually thousands of dollars less than their new counterparts due to depreciation for starters. This alone can reduce the value of the typical new car by some 20% during its first year in service. After five years, depreciation rates can often exceed 60%. The savings come because used-car pricing directly reflects the lower value of depreciated cars, even when the used vehicles are in top-notch condition.
The pre-owned Toyotas for sale at E-Z Way then bring the added benefit of peace of mind: Because of our rigorous inspection process and skilled technicians, we're so confident in the vehicles we sell that every one of them comes with a free warranty (see us for the details).
Yet, many require down payments of just $500 to make it easier for you to get on the road.
Most people think of hybrid powertrains when they think of Toyota technology, and with good reason. This is the brand that helped pioneer hybrid driving when it introduced the original Toyota Prius way back in 1997. The thing is, Toyota hasn't rested on its laurels since then. Instead, the company continues to innovate its products with advanced safety measures, rewarding infotainment features, and sophisticated connectivity, all of which are available in the brand's pre-owned vehicles, too! (Just remember that exact equipment will vary by model and model year.)
Folks in the Hickory area have all kinds of vehicle needs and budgets, and E-Z Way tries to keep used Toyotas in stock for everyone. Of course, it certainly helps that this is a full-line automaker that builds SUVs, trucks, minivans, sports cars, economy cars, and more. A few of our favorites are listed below, but please keep in mind that we're always refreshing our inventory with new stock, and we're always ready to help you find the used car you want, even if it's not currently on our lot!
Sakichi Toyoda may have been satisfied with inventing his engine-powered automatic loom back in the 1920s, but his son, Kiichiro, wasn't. The younger Toyoda wanted to use the company's engines to power cars, and the result was the 1933 AA Sedan that was the first motor vehicle to wear the “Toyoda” name. It was so successful that Toyoda's car-making business was eventually spun off as its own company which changed its name to Toyota because that had better connotations in Japanese.
Toyota began selling its first cars in the United States in 1957, although the brand certainly had an inauspicious start: It only sold 288 vehicles in its first year here. Needless to say, demand significantly increased over the years, and by 1972, Toyota's U.S. sales had topped the 1 million mark. Toyota became the best-selling import brand in the country in 1975 and really hasn't slowed down since. Nowadays, Toyota not only sells cars here, but it also makes many of them in the U.S. as well, including a lot of the used Toyotas for sale in Hickory.
