Posted by Poquet Auto on Apr 18, 2019 10:00:00 AM

When you begin your search for a new or used vehicle, you typically start off with a particular type of car, truck, or SUV in mind. Whether it’s a hybrid or fuel-efficient vehicle, your first step in the purchasing process is research — that way you won’t feel lost when you walk into a dealership.
