Should I keep my vehicle or sell and get a different one?
This is a question that we are asked from time to time when a customer is faced with a large repair bill or the vehicle is getting up in years. This seems like a simple question to answer but each person’s situation is unique and needs to be evaluated based on his or her set of circumstances. It is important to understand what the nature of the repair or services required is that brought up this question.
Some questions to consider are:
• Is it a single item failure such as a transmission due to missed maintenance of the transmission fluid
• Is the vehicle needing maintenance on a number of different systems that are not broken but only needing routine servicing?
• Does the vehicle have a history of being maintained in a way that prolongs the life of the vehicle
• Have maintenance services been missed compromising the life of the vehicle.
• What will the overall condition of the vehicle be after the Auto repair or services are completed?
People that have well maintained vehicles get to choose when they get a different vehicle and often will change vehicles just to have something different, not because they have to. These people enjoy shopping for a new or newer used vehicle, without the pressure of feeling “I have to buy a vehicle today because mine is broken”. Others are not so fortunate, due to missed maintenance causing a failure of one or more systems on their current vehicle they feel pressured into getting a different vehicle sooner than finances allow them to comfortably acquire and are often left with an un-easy feeling from rushing such a large purchase.
Vehicles that are properly maintained on a regular basis very seldom have major component failure because the maintenance has been done that keeps the vehicle operating properly. This is doing more than just changing oil, it involves having qualified technicians inspect the different systems of the vehicle, servicing components and fluids before they become excessively worn or contaminated. Excessive wear or contamination will result in component failure, possibly having a compounding effect damaging other systems or components that will increase your costs. Proper vehicle maintenance should be budgeted for; the benefit is you get to choose when to change vehicles rather than being forced to change and then after the purchase, being stressed about the payments.
Have a great day, next time we’ll discuss the vehicle manufacturers maintenance schedules and how maintenance can save you time and money.
