Toyota of Bristol Presents a Used Car Buying Guide

Drivers all around Johnson City and Kingsport shop at Toyota of Bristol for a used vehicle because we keep our lot stocked with a quality lineup. In fact, we even carry certified pre-owned Toyota models that come with a manufacturer-backed warranty! With so many desirable options, you can trust our dealership to have something suitable for you. The question is, where do you start your search? To help you, we have devised a simple shopping guide.

01. Plan Your Budget

A good place to start your auto search is to figure out what you can afford. You should not only calculate your savings and income but potential expenses like maintenance. By taking everything into account—both money coming in and going out—you will have a better perspective of what you can buy.

02. Modify Your Search

Once you know your budget, you can dig right into our inventory. You can save time by adjusting the parameters of our search tool according to your wants and needs. This will narrow down the list of suitable used cars for sale at our dealership in Bristol, Tennessee.

03. Research and Compare

After finding some used vehicles that interest you, we suggest you take a closer look of each. Reading reviews from automotive critics like Kelley Blue Book or Autotrader will help you learn more about the long-term value. You will want to conduct a side-by-side comparison so that you choose a pre-owned car, truck, or SUV with the best accommodations for you.

04. Schedule a Test Drive

Information about the models at our used car dealership near Abingdon and Marion, Virginia, is readily available online. However, we always encourage customers to stop by in person to test their favorite pre-owned vehicles personally. That way, you can make your decision based on your own experience.

05. Ask for a Vehicle History Report

Many of our products come with a Vehicle History Report. The file includes information about previous accidents, repairs, and more. Having such a record will give you an accurate account about the condition of your prospective used car, truck, or SUV.

06. Request an Inspection

Before you commit to buying a used car from Toyota of Bristol, you can have an experienced technician from our service center administer a checkup. This will ensure that the pre-owned model you want not only looks great but runs properly, too.

07. Negotiate a Deal

We want you to save money when you shop with us, which is why our entire collection is applied with steep discounts, but that does not mean there is no room to negotiate. Quite the contrary, you can speak with our advisors to discuss other ways to lower the cost of taking a used car home with you.
