Compare it to the options you’ve had before.4.
Look for a dealer that’s reliable.5.
Know the truck’s specs.
If you have a budget and don’t want to pay more for a vehicle that’s less reliable, consider purchasing a lower mileage vehicle with less tech features, such as a low-profile grille, a wider roof, or a more aggressive engine, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
If you need more tech, consider getting an SUV or sport utility vehicle with a higher-tech engine and a smaller cargo capacity.

You can also check your leasing rates and make sure you can’t get a lower price with an offer of less.
