TopMark, UMW Toyota Motor’s division offering quality pre-owned vehicles, will be rebranded as Toyota TopMark from this month onwards. The move reflects the new focus on offering quality Toyota Certified Pre-Owned cars and Hybrid cars which has been one of the strengths of the division since being established in 2000.
“While there is a new name, Toyota TopMark maintains the strong reputation it has gained among used car buyers for providing quality vehicles which have been thoroughly inspected. Being affiliated with UMW Toyota Motor’s service and technical divisions, Toyota TopMark has access to information on every Toyota vehicle so it has greater expertise than any other party in Malaysia where it comes to inspections” – UMW Toyota.
For the buyer’s peace of mind, the TopMark approved vehicle’s service record is also available for examination. Toyota TopMark gives full assurance that the cumulative mileage shown on the odometer is genuine and not adjusted backwards. In fact, every vehicle that is offered for sale at Toyota TopMark undergoes an inspection process covering over 200 points before it is readied for display. These include safety checks to ensure that all safety systems are in proper working order and that the tyres have sufficient tread (if not, they will be replaced). The standard battery is also replaced with a new one and Toyota Genuine Parts are used if replacements are needed. All the work is done at an authorised Toyota service centre.
To give the vehicle a fresh look, it also undergoes Complete Cleaning, a thorough 3-step cleaning process that will leave it looking as good as new. As an example of the thoroughness of the cleaning, all the tyres are removed and cleaned separately while wheel arch is cleaned with quality detergent and high water pressure to remove mud and oil. It is then finished off with black paint spray to restore and protect the inside surfaces. The process covers the exterior and interior and is finished off with a professional polishing job and the cabin is deodorized.
Customers can enjoy extra benefits when they buy a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Toyota TopMark. Each vehicle comes with a 2-year warranty or 40,000 kms travelled (whichever occurs first after purchase) on the engine and transmission. By arrangement with all authorised Toyota service centres, the labour charges for the first and second scheduled services will be waived.
Customers can also enjoy a higher margin of financing and fast approval of loans (terms and conditions apply) from Toyota TopMark’s affiliate, Toyota Capital. In conjunction with the rebranding move, Toyota TopMark’s website (www.toyotatopmark.com.my) has also been refreshed to provide visitors with a more user-friendly interface. Visitors to the website who are searching through the stock of vehicles available from Toyota TopMark can do so easily with the new navigation menu that is easy to use.

With the high-quality vehicles offered, customers would be able to have peace of mind, enjoying the same trouble-free ownership experience just like new Toyota vehicles owner. So for customers who are looking for quality and value for money Toyota pre-owned cars and hybrid cars, trust Toyota TopMark to have the right one for you.
