One of the highest-rated dealerships in the area, West Coast Auto Sales has built its stellar reputation by offering some of the best used cars in Sacramento.

These vehicles are acclaimed for their quality and reliability, and the ones you find at West Coast Auto Sales are available with transparent pricing and easy financing from our network of priority lenders. We encourage you to check them out today by visiting our online showroom or our conveniently located lot and seeing them for yourself. And we’ll seal the deal with superior customer service!
For starters, you can save thousands of dollars when you buy a pre-owned Toyota instead of a brand-new one, even if they have the exact same equipment and the used one is in great shape. You can thank depreciation for that advantage. It reduces the value of a new car over time pretty significantly: In only a single year, depreciation can eat up some 20% of a car’s value. The typical five-year-old car can easily face depreciation rates of 60% or more. It's a major drop in value that translates into a major drop in pricing that affects nearly all the used cars for sale in Sacramento.
You’ll also want to think ahead about other expenses when you buy a car, and in most cases, insurance is going to be your highest ongoing ownership cost. The good news is that insurance policies for used cars — with their lower values — are generally less expensive than for the same coverage on a newer model.
West Coast Auto Sales then goes these important financial considerations to boost your confidence in our used cars. For example, we give a rigorous safety inspection to every pre-owned vehicle on our lot before it’s ever offered for sale.

Toyota is world-renowned for its high-efficiency hybrid technologies, yet the brand’s wide range of premium features goes well beyond what’s under the hood. You can also enjoy must-have connectivity, high-end creature comforts, and advanced driver-assistance systems. That’s just another reason why Toyotas are among the most sought-after used cars for sale in Sacramento. (Note that equipment can vary by model and model year.)

Family roots run deep in the Toyota Motor Company, starting from the very beginning: Sakichi Toyota set things in motion by inventing an engine to help automate the weaving process for the textile industry. His son, Kiichiro, realized that that engine expertise would translate well into the auto industry and built the 1933 AA Sedan — the first car sold under the “Toyoda” name. The AA was so successful that the younger Toyoda devoted his full-time energy to establishing the business as a stand-alone automaker. He also changed the new company’s name to “Toyota” since it had more positive meanings in Japanese.
Expansion to the United States began in 1957, although Toyota tallied fewer than 300 sales in its first year here. Perhaps the turning point came in 1972, when the company’s lineup of efficient cars proved especially popular due to the oil crisis. In fact, Toyota’s U.S. sales topped 1 million units that year. The company became the No. 1 import brand in the country in 1975 and only kept on growing. It even began building its vehicles in the U.S. back in the 1980s. Today, Toyota is firmly established as one of America’s — and Sacramento’s — favorite brands.
