Buying your first car at Bob Smith Toyota is an experience to celebrate, and you can make it all the more memorable by engaging in three key pre-purchase steps: research, test drive, and finance. Investing the right amount of time in these front-end priorities pays off in the long run.


Every smart car-buying process begins with research. When you search “Toyota cars near me” on your smartphone and discover our online inventory, you’ll have a wealth of information with which to evaluate your options. You can explore our inventory in a number of ways: by price, features, body style, new/pre-owned, and more. This makes it easy to narrow your search to a few models that fit your unique needs best. Our website also boasts useful tools like “value your trade” and “calculate payments,” which equip you with additional knowledge that help make the purchase process even easier.  

Test Drive

Once you’ve concluded your research, it’s time to visit your local La Crescenta, CA Toyota dealer at 3333 Foothill Blvd and take a test drive. This step’s importance can’t be overstated, since it’s the best way to evaluate a car’s potential. Data, pictures, and incentives are definitely important, but only by actually driving a vehicle and gauging its performance, comfort, features, etc. can you truly ascertain whether it’s the right vehicle for you. All you need to test drive a car, truck, or SUV at our Toyota dealership near Los Angeles is your driver’s license and insurance.  


You’ve checked our website, taken your top choices for a test drive, and have settled on the ideal model for your budget and lifestyle. Now it’s time to finance the vehicle in our Toyota finance center near Glendale, CA. Automotive financing can be intimidating even for people that have bought a few cars in their lifetime, but worry not: our nearby Toyota dealers will take you step by step through the process, exercising complete transparency and ensuring you understand all terminology.  We’ll work with you to confirm your down payment, monthly payment, interest rate, and much more.
