Used cars are where it's at. Why pay full price when the car depreciates coilnderabsy in value as soon as you buy it? My husband and I are very happily payment free with no intention to buy another vehicle until one of ours just can't be fixed anymore. We probably have a good 5-10 years left in each of our vehicles unless our needs change. Gas Mileage: keep your oil changed regularly, your tires pumped up, and run some fuel injector cleaner through a tank of gas every 6 months to get the best possible gas mileage.Maintenance: After the warranty on your car is up, ask around town to find a good, trustworthy and affordable small-time mechanic. This can save you a lot of money on repairs, and you will get the truth on what is really necessary and what can be put off a bit longer.
DiegoOctober 5, 2011 I've been using Benz by Blair for two years now for my late model Mercedes C-Class. Not only has BbyB performed all reuaglr maintenance at prices much lower than the Mercedes dealers, they have saved me $100 s of dollars in repairing normal wear and tear items on my car like scratches and dings, keeping my car looking and feeling like it was just purchased. So if you don't want to make a claim to your insurance for these smaller items, go to Benz by Blair and they will save you money if it's possible.BbyB was also able to get a genuine part for half the dealer price. I couldn't believe it. I don't know if they can do this every time, but I do have comfort knowing they will try.
Short, sweet, to the point, FREltexac-Ey as information should be!
