Common Questions When Buying A Car

new Toyota models for sale in Quincy

Our Quincy Toyota dealer has one priority, and it's you. We want to make sure you're driving off the lot in a car that makes sense for you, and in order to do that, you have to ask the right questions to get a better idea of how to narrow down your choices. We've compiled a list of good questions to ask at the dealership for you.

Do You Have A Car That Fits My Needs?

It's important to have a discussion with the sales rep about what your needs are so they can point you in the right direction. In order to understand what your needs are, you should be deciding things like whether this car is your primary or secondary car, if you need this car for work, or if you'll be doing things like going on long road trips often and packing things into it. The sales professional should be able to show you cars based on your needs.

What Is The Gas Mileage?

One of the biggest, if not the biggest, costs of owning a car is how much money you'll be spending at the pump. Getting a great deal on a new car might seem great at first, but if you don't budget for a car with poor fuel economy, you could find yourself spending a lot more money than you anticipated. Make sure you know exactly how much fuel economy you're getting.

Does It Come In Four Wheel Drive?

Depending on where you live or where you plan on going in your new car, four-wheel drive might be a necessity. Those who plan on going offroading or driving in areas with snowy conditions may want to ask about the availability of four-wheel drive.

What Other Amenities Does The Vehicle Come With?

Often, extra features can be the deciding factor when picking a new car. Ask your sales rep if it comes with anything like satellite radio, a sunroof, or heated seats that would put it over the top for you. These features can often affect pricing, so getting a full picture of what the car offers is important.

Is There A Warranty?

Factory warranties can differ greatly, and can often extend your coverage by a difference of years. Understanding how you're covered after you drive off the lot is a huge part of the decision-making process when buying a car, and it's one of the first things you should be asking a car sales professional.
