It happened again—your car broke down and you’re looking at a high repair bill. This isn’t the first time, and you’re getting tired of pouring money into an aging vehicle. Would you be better off fixing it, or is it really time to buy a newer one? While there’s no clear-cut answer to these questions, Barrett Motors in Sachse, Garland and Rowlett recommends you consider this simple formula: if the repair costs are greater than either the value of your car or one year’s worth of monthly payments, it’s time for another vehicle.

The Costs 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 cars reach the 90,000-100,000 mile mark. Hoses and rubber belts dry out and crack, metal on rotors warps or wears thin and electrical parts just stop working. A timing belt can be a big-ticket item on high-mileage cars, generally needing replacement around 100,000 miles.

When you buy from Barrett Motors, you don’t have to worry about breakdowns, because we only sell late model, low mileage vehicles. And since every one of our vehicles is Auto Check Certified, you’ll love the fact that you won’t end up in the repair shop over and over again. When a car has lower mileage, the parts and components should last longer before they fail. Plus, newer models have a lot more features that can make driving a pleasure, and safer, too! Newer models come with more safety features, so you can feel confident as you drive your kids to practice, your mom to the grocery store and your significant other to the movies!
