1. Choose Your Model

The first and most important step in the car buying process is to pick the vehicle you think most matches your lifestyle. At Donley Ford Lincoln, we have a massive inventory of new and pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs for you to choose from. If you would like to learn more about any of the vehicles we have available, visit our model research hub for detailed specifications.

2. Choose Your Trim

After you've chosen the make and model you'd like to drive, the next step is to determine which trim package has the amenities you're looking for. For more information on available trim packages, take a look at the comparison articles on the model hub page we've developed. If you'd like to take a look at the trim packages we have available at our Mt. Vernon, OH dealership, head over to our new vehicle inventory.

3. Decide on Leasing vs. Buying

Now that you've decided on the trim package you prefer, it's time to figure out whether you'll be leasing or buying. If you would like to upgrade to the newest model every few years and lower your monthly payments, then leasing your vehicle is your best bet. If you would rather not worry about yearly mileage and customization restrictions, buying allows you to do both.

4. View Available Incentives or Lease Specials

Next, we highly recommend that you take a look at the incentives and special offers we have available. Each of our deals is designed to help you save money and if you don't see the right one for your needs, one of our experts will work closely with you to find the perfect payment plan for your lifestyle.

5. Fill Out a Finance Application

Before you come in, we also recommend that you pre-qualify for financing using the secure form on our website. To get started, fill out the application with your information and one of our representatives will contact you with additional details on your loan. We promise that we will only use your personal details for the purposes of securing your loan.

6. Schedule a Test-Drive

You've finished all the research, determined which model is your favorite, and applied for financing, now comes the fun part: scheduling a test-drive appointment! We've made scheduling your appointment easier than ever with our online tool. Simply fill out the form with your desired times and we'll get right back to you.
