Toyota is launching a program to remanufacture cars to "the best standard" at least twice after their first use cycle. It would likely be off lease cars that get returned to the factory. After going through three use cycles cars would then be recycled responsibly. The program will launch in the UK and could eventually be in the US.

Would you buy a car refurbished by Toyota?

doesn't make sense logistically in US. Unless they have different mini factories to restore cars in local regions.

Depends heavily on the price. It's definitely better than a used car, but it has to be priced right to be attractive compared to a new car.

I mean if it's done with factory parts by the factory and comes with a warranty then why not? As long as it hasn't been in any accidents or rusted out.

What a great idea, as long as they can keep the price of these refurbished cars under control.

I actually hate the German disposable car concept where they build cars to work fine when new but then collapse into a pile of scrap after about 10 years or so. It makes the cars expensive to own and it is very bad for the environment.

That should depends on the car model and price. For cars like 86, most driver gonna drive it really hard especially those lease it. For the rest, like corolla, 4runner or Tacoma, not really necessary. Still remember Top Gear tried every way to kill a Hulix, it's just a mission impossible.
