Is it Time to Trade Up?

Doggone it.

Your car broke down— it’s going to be a high repair bill again. You’re getting tired of pouring money into an aging vehicle.

Would you be better off patching it up again? Or is it time to buy a newer vehicle? Of course, there is no clear-cut answer, but our educated staff at Barrett Motors recommends that you consider this simple formula: if the repair costs are greater than the value of your car/or one year’s worth of monthly payments—it’s time for another vehicle. We have an excellent selection of quality, dependable used vehicles available of each of our three lots. But before you look, consider the following:

The cost of wear and tear

Even if you’ve taken good care of your car, truck, SUV or van over the years, some-high priced repairs are unavoidable. When vehicles reach the 90,000-100,000 mile mark, It’s not uncommon for hoses and rubber belts to dry out and crack, metal on rotors warps or wears thin, and electrical parts just stop working. A timing belt is a big-ticket item on high-mileage cars, generally needing replacement at around 100,000 miles.

Late model, low-mileage vehicles are a good bet

When you buy any vehicle from Barrett Motors, you won’t worry about breakdowns because we only sell late model, low mileage vehicles that have been AutoCheck Certified. A vehicle with lower mileage has a chance at a longer life because parts and components should last longer before they reach the fail stage.

Newer models have more safety features too, so that you can feel confident when you drive your kids to practice, your partner to the grocery store and on date nights to the movies.
