First, find a truck that fits your price range. Decide on this before you arrive to the dealership. The process of deciding between trucks is much easier when you know exactly how much you are able to spend. Next, ask your sales associate about the types of warranties offered with the used pickups you are interested in. Some models might offer better warranty plans than others, which is something else that can help narrow your search.

Go for a test drive. Always get behind the wheel of a vehicle you are interested in buying. Since you will most likely be spending a lot of time in this truck, make sure it has a smooth ride, nice handling, and a quiet cabin. Many times shoppers make the mistake of using the test drive only to see if there is something wrong with the vehicle. While it is a good idea to keep an open ear for any clanking or knocking noises, it is also important to make sure this truck drives how you want it to. Coming from Stuart or Martinsville, VA? Take a drive on some good old back roads and see how it fairs.

Lastly, ask to see the service records and background check. These will be on hand and easily accessible. Be sure and take your time looking over these and that you are okay with the truck’s history. Happy shopping!
