Here in Iowa, pickup trucks are a popular choice. If you’re thinking about buying one of your own for the first time, we have some tips for you to consider. Then, come visit one of our Motor Inn Auto Group locations throughout the state to get behind the wheel of your favorite model.
Consider how you will use it. Are you planning on using your truck for work, towing, or just your family vehicle? Think about these needs when choosing the powertrain, bed, and cab configurations.
Trucks drive differently. Trucks are a lot bigger and heavier than a sedan or even some SUVs. This means they will handle differently and be harder to park. They also take longer to stop because of their heavier weight.
Do not overbuy. It can be tempting to buy the biggest, toughest truck on the lot. However, if you will realistically never go slogging through mud or tow a fully loaded horse trailer, you don’t need a truck with those capabilities.
Choose options carefully. Perhaps more than any other type of vehicle, trucks are available with a lot of options. Choose features that you need and then see how much room you have in your budget for more luxury and convenience features.
