Our cars tell more about us than we sometimes realize. Besides getting us from point A to point B, they tell a story about our lifestyle, our families, and the things we hold important. Besides being a statement of sorts, your first vehicle from our selection of new and used cars is an investment, which is why St Cloud Toyota puts a lot of thought and effort into helping you get it right.
With so many things to consider — size, cost, budget, and how you’ll use this vehicle day-to-day — your choice of model shouldn’t be your first consideration. Instead, start by asking the important questions, and letting their answers guide you.
Where are you driving? How far, and for how long?
Are you a homebody, or do you like taking a lot of road trips?
Is this car meant to get you to work, or does it, too, need to earn its keep?
Do your work or your hobbies find you frequently carrying a lot with you?
Who’s along for the ride? Are you driving solo, or bringing family and friends?
What does your budget look like? What about your credit?
Having thought through the scenarios and the numbers, you’re better equipped to start your car-buying journey, picking a body style, make, model, and the kinds of amenities that matter to you.
Specifics help you and us alike. If you know you need a compact SUV, for instance, we can guide you to a new Toyota RAV4. However, if you’re buying used, you may also need to compare multiple model years even of the same trim, since features change and evolve over time. A Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vehicle will give you more options than picking from our inventory of used cars under $10,000.
If your credit is excellent, it’s easier to qualify for a Toyota lease or loan. We know, however, that a lot of first-time car buyers are still in the process of building credit, or playing catch-up after running up enormous credit card bills in college. St. Cloud Toyota works with multiple lenders, so we have a better-than-average range of used car finance options available; these can help you build, or rebuild, credit as long as your payments are on time.
