Warranties and Promotions

There’s a false assumption that you can get a better deal on a used car from a private seller than a dealership, but our team knows that those wildcard prices are the exception, not necessarily the rule. When you buy your used car from Sand Mountain Toyota, you’ll get to experience the relief of our used car specials , and when your model is ready for a service appointment , you can trust our service center to handle any maintenance issues you may have. Plus, many of our used models still have coverage under their original warranty, and we provide the option to purchase an extended warranty at signing!


Why else would you buy from a dealership instead of a private seller? Our overall Google rating currently stands at 4.8 stars, which speaks to our customer service, professionalism and problem-solving abilities. We’ve earned our reputation over years of hard work, ensuring that every guest experience is a positive one. But with a private seller, you won’t really know who you’re dealing with — are they trustworthy? Safe? Reliable? Will they show up when they say they will? Did they properly describe the used model? Do you feel comfortable with a cash transaction with a stranger you’ve never met?


Offering multiple options for payment for the model probably won’t be a high priority for a private seller. They may have an online payment service account through Venmo or PayPal, but we’ve found that many of our customers are more comfortable with paying for their model in cash to a reputable dealership that already has safety measures in place. Plus, Sand Mountain Toyota has used car financing, which gives our customers more flexibility with monthly payments instead of the entire amount in full. Build your credit by paying a little bit at a time to a business you can trust!
