Hands rest on a laptop

At our San Diego Ford dealership, we know that sometimes doing your shopping from home is a better idea than visiting a store. That’s why we’ve put together some online shopping options, so you can buy your next new Ford SUV without ever leaving your house. Here’s how to buy a car online in San Diego.

How do I apply for financing online?

Fortunately, you don’t have to visit us in person to begin the financing process. Thanks to our online finance application, we can help you determine your credit eligibility so you can drive off with confidence. Just submit your vehicle of choice, along with your personal and financial information, and our platform will provide you with a range of financing options to choose from.

How do I shop for a car online?

Explore our lot without ever setting foot in our dealership. All you need to do is navigate to the new and pre-owned tabs at the top of our website. From there, you should see a dropdown menu of our vehicles, new Ford specials, and more. Navigate to “Search new vehicles” and “Search pre-owned vehicles” to narrow down your options by model, year, price, trim, and any other category you can think of.

Can I take a test drive at home?

Yes! Just select a model from our inventory of new Ford models, schedule the date, time, and location of your test drive, confirm with our Kearny Mesa Ford dealers, and take your test drive. If you love the car you chose, you can sign the paperwork right there and then, but you’re also welcome to take some time to think about it or set up a different test drive.

Can I trade in my current vehicle and use those funds as a down payment?

We are proud to offer a comprehensive vehicle trade-in program here at Kearny Mesa Ford. You can receive an estimate right here on our website via our KBB Instant Cash Offer tool. An official value will be provided following an in-person appraisal. You can use these funds toward the down payment of your new car purchase.

How can I learn more about my vehicle options at home? 

Browse our website and check out our blog page! If you’re worried about budgetary constraints, then get a hold of our finance team. They’ll work with you for a great offer on the vehicle you want.

Thanks to our online tools and at-home test drive program, you can complete the car-buying process without ever setting foot in our dealership. Still curious about buying a car online at Kearny Mesa Ford? Feel free to give us a call, we’ll talk you through any additional options you might have.
