Okay. So that title is a bit misleading. You can’t drive 100% for free but you can certainly drive inexpensively without compromising on quality or style! Let me tell you how.
Many of us make the mistake of believing we have to drive our cars off the dealership lot with zero miles and a dealership warranty that’ll cover the best years of our cars life but that simply isn’t the case. In reality, a used car, like an existing house, hasn't necessarily suffered from previous use. In many cases, the car, like the house has benefited by previous ownership in the form of upgrades, add-ons, as well as inherent issues having already been addressed and repaired!
The key to buying used is making sure you’re not only getting a good deal but also making sure your potential car checks out mechanically. Did you know Johan’s Hondura offers Pre-Purchase Checks to help ensure you’re buying well? As a third party in the transaction, our shop has nothing to gain with the sale of the car and our loyalty is to YOU, our customer. It’s a no-brainer--bring your final option by and we’ll do a quick check for you and send you on your way with some assurance that you know what you’re getting yourself into.
Johan’s Hondura has been in business for over 30 years so many of our customers have had their cars with us from day one! We have so many stories of how we’ve helped our customers achieve hundreds of thousands of reliable miles on their cars. Yes, you read that right--hundreds of thousands! Some have even facilitated the sale of their cars to private party buyers by being able to offer them the unique advantage of repair and maintenance records that span the life of the car. Repairs, as expensive as they seem when they are required, cost so much less than car payments over the long term. Prove it to a future buyer!
Did you know a brand new car can cost you $5,000 or more in extra costs versus its previously owned counterparts? As you’ve probably been told, new cars depreciate the minute you drive it off the lot. The reason for that is, YOU now own it so it instantly became a “used” car by virtue of you signing a few papers. Then add on new car tags, title and taxes and you are looking at a lofty investment just so you can hope your car will be more reliable and not cause you any nasty surprises. By the way, it still can. Many new car purchasers end up taking the hit by attempting to preserve their new car purchase just so the next, deal-conscious owner can benefit from their investment! Don’t give your money away that way! You might as well consider all your options.
Many people shy away from previously owned cars especially when they are purchased from a private party seller because of financing. Buyers should know that you have many options when it comes to financing. Not many people have that kind of cash in their pockets to pay for such a large purchase outright! Most banks offer private loan programs to assist you in your car purchase. The interest rates may even be better than you previously thought so shop around for the right loan for you.
We wish you all the best in your vehicular adventures and we hope we’ve helped ease your mind about buying a previously owned vehicle. Remember, like a good physician, investment advisor or real estate agent, we are your partners in caring for your investment both before and after your purchase.
