The used car market is among the biggest revenue generators in the automotive industry of India. Most of the car buyers sell their cars out in the first 5 years of ownership usually because they are either bored of driving the same vehicle or there are some major upgrades by the automaker which lure the audience and they end up buying a new vehicle for themselves.

Trust & Reliability
Even the Indian army trusts Toyota! No matter what the terrain is, Toyota cars always deliver great performance with extreme reliability.

Long Ownership Periods
Most Toyota customers buy these machines to use them. By this we mean there are very few people who sell their machine out within 5 years of ownership. This means that Toyota cars are available in an overall lesser amount in the used car market which makes the prices rise within themselves! The logic is simple demand and supply. More people want to buy Toyotas at a price cheaper than the showroom and the number of cars available is less so used Toyota buyers have to pay more money than a person purchasing a used car of any other brand.
Spare Part Availability
No matter how old your Toyota is, you will always continue to get spare parts for your dear machine. Believe us, even if you purchase a 12-13-year-old Innova/Fortuner, you will not have to suffer for any kind of spare part availability. If you are not able to source it from anywhere anyhow, GoMechanic hai na!
