WHEN TO BUY A NEW CAR
If you’ve maintained your car well, if you’ve been a part of our VIP club
membership and we’ve serviced your car every 5,000 miles, if you’ve
taken care of things properly, then you should expect to get 300,000
to 400,000 miles from it. When you buy a vehicle, you need to understand
that how you maintain it today is going to impact its condition tomorrow.
With proper servicing, your point of diminishing returns is going to be a lot
farther down the road than if you allow it to be neglected.
I have seen vehicles with as few as 75,000 miles that need an engine
because the oil was not changed properly. Today that is a $7,000 to $10,000
venture, and depending on the vehicle, it may not be worth it. If, however,
you have it financed and you owe money on it and are “upside down” (you
owe more than it’s worth), you may not have a choice.
