Buying a New Car? What to Bring!

ford motor company

If you’re thinking about purchasing a new car, it’s important to know what to bring. Here at Tri State we have a list of EVERYTHING you need to bring in!


1. Valid Drivers License and insurance

  • A valid drivers license and insurance is important because if you’re wanting to test drive a vehicle we need to ensure that you are a valid driver and insured to ensure a smooth test drive. Without one, it’ll be almost impossible for us to be able to give you a good test drive.

2. Make an Appointment

  • Making an appointment will streamline the process of purchasing a vehicle by a tremendous amount. Simply making an appointment will allow for us to ensure that the vehicle is ready to be shown. There are times where we have a vehicle that may need service work or that is currently being cleaned that if you just come in, it’ll be hard for us to ensure that it’s ready. Making an appointment will ensure that the vehicle you’re interested in is ready for you to purchase and drive off the lot.

3. (If trading) Title and Registration

  • If you plan on trading your vehicle in this is one of the most important steps. Ensuring that you have all of your details about your vehicle that you’re wanting to trade in will make the process much easier. If you bring your title and registration from your vehicle you’re wanting to trade in, it will allow for us to do the trading right then and there.


These simple steps will ensure that your process is streamlined. If you do all of these steps, you can come in and be out in no time at all. Tri State loves seeing your faces, however, if you want to get in your vehicle in the fastest amount of time, it’ll be important to have all of these items.


Can’t wait to see you!

Snow Preparation

ford motor company


Hello Tri State Fam!

We’ve all heard the reports for this weekend. After last weekend, with areas like central Missouri being buried by snow, we feel it is important to give you some preparation tips before the big storm hits. This is just to get you ready even though we all know how Missouri weather is *wink*.

Your Vehicle

  1. Make sure that your vehicle is full of gas.
  2. Constantly check road conditions. You do not want to be stranded for hours or risk your or anyone else’s lives on unsafe roads. Drive if only absolutely necessary. Stick to main roads.
    1. Have an “emergency” kit in your vehicle complete with snacks, blankets, hand warmers, water, phone charger and anything else you think you might need in case you or someone you know gets stranded.
  3. Check the tread and air in your tires. Consider snow tires if you live in an area that gets consistent snow fall.
  4. Change your oil and antifreeze if needed.
  5. Inspect your heater.
  6. Inspect your battery.

Your Home

  1. Stock up on ice melt. Place salt down a few hours prior to the storm. Most weather reports for this week have stated that there will be more rain beforehand.
  2. Stock up on groceries days before the storm. Grab necessities (bread, eggs, milk) and other items that have a longer shelf life.
  3. Prepare your snow shovel/ snow plow.
  4. Check your gutters.
  5. Check your water pipes to ensure that they don’t freeze with the low temperatures.
  6. Clear a space for your pets so that they can use the restroom or play. If your animals are not used to the frigid weather/the snow is too deep please bring your pets inside or make sure their shelter is also secure and ready for the storm.

Weather is always crazy in the Midwest. As a member of our Tri State family, we want you to be prepared for anything. If you have any questions or have any tips that we should add, please feel free to call us at 660-582-3677.

There are four different Trim Levels on this newly designed Dodge Product. The First, is the Journey SE. This level starts the MSRP at $22,496 and includes all the basic functionality features of the infamous Journey Line. It is the base model for all the furthering trim levels. Some of the features it includes is the 3rd row seating, Bluetooth Connect, and much more.

The second trim level is the Journey SXT, which can start the MSRP off at $25,695. With this level, the LED tail lamps and 17-inch aluminum wheels are added to the base model, Journey SE.

The next two trims are where the bonus  equipment come in. The Journey Crossroad starts the MSRP around $27,895 and includes leather interior and a 10-way power driver’s seat. The last trim level is the Journey GT, which is the whole shebang. It starts the MSRP at a whopping $32, 495 and is loaded with all the specialty equipment. It has heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Along with that it has the 8.4″ Touchscreen system. The Journey just continues to develop itself into a preforming machine.

When it comes to an SUV, many times you have the option to have 4-wheel drive or not. The Journey is a crossover, which means that it can be either or. It is completely in the hands of the driver. Ultimately, our Dodge Journey’s are your top pick for you and your family!
