Five Steps to Buying a Pre-Owned Bismarck Truck
If you're thinking about buying used, we want you to be confident in your decision. Follow these five steps to buying used trucks in Bismarck.
1. Decide What You Want
Before you start shopping, have in mind a general idea of the truck you're looking for. Otherwise, you may be overwhelmed by the world of options awaiting you online or at the dealership.
There are several factors to keep in mind when deciding on a pre-owned truck
including price, power, safety, fuel economy, and special features.
Perhaps the most important of these is price
. A good rule of thumb is to never spend more than 20% of your take-home pay on your monthly car payment.
So before you fall in love with your dream truck, make sure you can actually afford it!
2. Do Some Research
Once you know what features you're looking for, do some research on specific models that meet that criteria.
Before you go in, though, be sure you've looked into the value of the vehicle; that way, you can be confident in our price. Also, research reviews about the vehicle so that you can ask the right questions when you take your test drive.
To speed up the process even more, you can fill out an online credit application. This allows our business managers to see what financing options work best for you. Doing this also puts you in a better position to find the right truck to meet your needs.
3. Take a Test Drive
During your test drive, try to follow your normal driving patterns and routes; you'll be able to get a feel for how the vehicle will operate on a day-to-day basis. Be sure to drive it in town, on the highway, and even on gravel roads if possible to see how well the shocks are holding up.
Your test drive can tell you tons of important information about the pre-owned truck you're considering. Check the brakes, transmission, and all the controls to ensure everything's working properly. Don't be afraid to take your time – this might be the biggest purchase you make this year!
4. Ask For a History Report
At Eide Chrysler, we'll provide you with a complimentary Autocheck Vehicle History Report so you know exactly what you're getting into.
5. Close the Deal
Think you've found the one? You're ready to seal the deal!
Before you sign the contract, read it closely so you're comfortable with the fine print. Don't be afraid to ask our team questions! Be sure you're comfortable with your grand total – as well as any additional coverage –before you agree to it.
At the end of the day, we want you to drive home in a pre-owned truck that you're thrilled about, after having a Time Saving, Hassle Free, Fair Price
experience at Eide Chrysler.
