The Before-You-Buy Checklist

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

Purchasing a car is one of the biggest financial moves you may make in life. Just like a home, you want to make sure you find the right one, which meets all your needs and feels comfortable and safe. There are lots of amazing features to consider in modern vehicles. It is good to keep in mind some of the benefits of these different features and vehicles to know what will suit your needs best.

The excitement of buying a car can also cause you to overlook some important factors. So, before you sign on the dotted line, keep in mind the following:


  • Decide in advance how much you are willing to spend on your car. Make sure you have the number or limit set in mind before you arrive so that you are able to make responsible and realistic choices when it comes to purchasing the right car for you.


  • Once you have a budget fixed in your mind, find out the financing options. Fallon Ford-Toyota makes this part of the process easy—you can look up financing options on our website and see how much credit you are approved for.

Car History

  • It is important to know the car’s history. Fallon Ford-Toyota vehicles have the Carfax reports with them, so you can see the journey the car has been on so far and decide if you want to take it on its next leg.


  • The fun part is always going to be the test drive. Here, it is important to not only test how fast the vehicle goes but also to check braking, visibility, road noise, handling, and suspension. You can expedite the process of getting on the test drive by setting an appointment ahead of time

Here at Fallon Ford-Toyota, we offer a variety of used vehicles to fit your lifestyle, so that your vehicle can go from work to play exactly the way you need it to.

Whether you head out to test drive an F-150 or one of our other vehicles, be sure to keep in mind the points above, so you know you are picking your perfect vehicle. For more of our excellent selection of used and new cars in Reno, visit our website today!
