If you’re looking to buy your first pickup truck but aren’t sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a list of helpful tips for potential new truck owners.
It’s Not a Car
Though this should go without saying, buying and maintaining a truck is significantly different from owning a car. Because trucks are significantly larger and differently shaped, you’ll definitely want to make sure you test drive your truck before you buy it to make sure you like how trucks handle. It’s also harder to park a truck — both at the grocery store and in your garage — so make sure you are prepared.
Only Get What You Need
Most pickup owners only use a small portion of their truck’s capability. Know what you need your truck to do so you don’t end up with too much truck for your lifestyle. Make sure to consider bed length, cabin size, and capabilities as well.
Buy from a Dealership
Dealerships like Amistad Motors have huge pickup truck inventories, so you’re more likely to find what you’re looking for on our lot than from a third party. Our truck specialists can special-order a pickup that meets your exact specifications if we don’t have it in stock.
Visit our dealership in Fort Stockton, Texas, to test-drive your preferred model — or go online to browse our inventory of new and pre-owned pickup trucks.
