Steps to Taking Home Your New Toyota

Now that you know the terms we use and where your Toyota will be built, it's time to get into the nitty gritty. Lets talk about the steps from the starting point of reserving your Toyota, to driving it off the lot. Here at Toyota of Muscatine, we do not require any up-front costs for reserving your new vehicle. Let's take a deeper dive on how this process works!
  1. Make an appointment with our sales team to discuss new Toyotas
  2. Clarify the details of your desired vehicle (features, color, etc)
  3. Get your name added to a waiting list for the Toyota model you want
  4. When your name is up on the list, we will call you. This means we have a vehicle allocated that may fit your needs/wants
  5. If you chose to say yes to this vehicle, you will come in to meet with your sales consultant. At this time your trade-in will be appraised (if applicable), discuss finance details, and put down a $250.00 deposit to hold that vehicle
6. Now is the waiting period. Your sales consultant will reach out to periodically update you on the status of your new vehicle
7. When the vehicle status has switched to freight, we will have the true VIN number. At this time we can submit a credit application (if applicable)
8. When the vehicle arrives at our dealership, your sales consultant will set up an appointment with you to complete the purchasing process
9. Come in for your appointment to sign paperwork and go over your new vehicle with your sales consultant
10. Drive off the lot and enjoy your brand new Toyota!
