There's nothing like buying a new Toyota! As you drive away from the dealership, that euphoric feeling is almost addictive. What happens, though, when you realize you've bitten off more than you can chew, not with the price of the vehicle itself, but with the total cost of ownership of the vehicle? At Philpott Toyota, we want to ensure each of our customers gets exactly what they want, but also what they need. We would encourage you to consider a couple of things as you decide on which vehicle to purchase.

Total cost of ownership includes everything from necessities like insurance, taxes, gas, and maintenance costs, to optional add-ons like aftermarket accessories. Each of these costs must be considered and factored into your monthly budget to determine if you can afford a specific vehicle. Typically, of course, insurance and taxes will be higher on a new vehicle, but gas and maintenance costs are often higher on an older vehicle. Which combination is right for you is ultimately your call, but the professionals at our Toyota dealership in Nederland, TX are happy to assist in any way they can. Stop by today to speak with someone to see where your dreams end up taking you.
