5 Important Things You Must Do After Buying a Car from Don Robinson Mitsubishi | Saint Cloud, MN
We at Don Robinson Mitsubishi are excited to help you on your journey of car ownership. We strive to make the buying process easy to understand — even after you drive off the lot. Here are five things you should do immediately after you buy your car from us.
Resolve the title and registration
You’ll fill out a lot of paperwork when buying a car, and the last step involves registering the car with the Minnesota DVS. You will need to visit the local office and make sure the vehicle is registered in your name. If you bought the vehicle without financing it, you’ll also need to put the title in your name. If you have questions about this process, our sales team can help.
Read the owner's manual
While it may be tempting to skip this step, it’s important that you familiarize yourself with your new Mitsubishi. Scanning the owner’s manual for key information will give you some important insights about how to properly operate the car’s systems and how its newer technology works.
Get insurance coverage
Protecting your car with auto insurance right after purchasing it is legally required so that you have financial assistance in case of an accident. If this is your first car you’re buying, we suggest you research insurance companies and compare coverage so that you find a plan that is within your budget. If you’re trading in a car to Don Robinson Mitsubishi, you can contact your agent to transfer coverage to your new Mitsubishi.
Familiarize yourself with the warranty and maintenance guidelines
Your new car will require regular maintenance, so it is important to know exactly what is required when. Make a note of when each maintenance task is due so that you can mark it on your calendar and keep track of the mileage. You should also familiarize yourself with the warranty plan for your new vehicle so you don’t accidentally void it.
Take your car on an extended drive
After you buy the car, take it out for an extended drive so that you can get used to driving it. You should already have an idea of how it feels when you took the vehicle on a test drive at Don Robinson Mitsubishi. However, a more substantial drive will help you grow more comfortable with its overall driving dynamics and controls.
We at Don Robinson Mitsubishi strive to make your ownership transition simple and clear. We’re here to answer your questions, so contact us to talk with our friendly sales or finance associates.
