Cars have an incredible impact on our daily lives, and it’s easy to grow attached to a vehicle that has served you for a number of years. Unfortunately, most cars just can’t go on forever. Take a look at this short guide to see it it’s time to let your car go and move on to a new one.
When it needs massive repairs
Engine seizures and serious transmission problems can render a car a total loss. If your car has suffered a major system failure like this, it’s time to move on.
When maintenance costs add up
Some cars don’t run into big issues, but slowly chip away at your maintenance budget with smaller problems. When you are spending on repairs every month or two, consider the benefits of simply buying a new vehicle.
When you need better fuel economy
With high gas prices, commutes can be extremely costly. If your car was built when fuel economy was of little concern, you may save yourself a lot of financial stress by letting it go.
If you’re ready to let one car go and get into another, come to Texas Cars Direct. Our pre-owned luxury vehicles are an amazing value and will easily offer the comfort and performance you need. To learn more, call (214) 736-8557.
Many people are surprised to learn that pre-owned luxury vehicles are actually a fantastic value. Discovering this value often prompts people to research the many options for used luxury performance vehicles, such as Land Rover, BMW, and others. Here’s a quick breakdown of what you should look for if you are trying to decide whether a Mercedes-Benz or a Jaguar would suit you better:
Any luxury brand will offer a comfortable ride and plenty of features, but there are always subtle differences. Take, for example, comparable models from 2007: the Mercedes-Benz CLS550 and the Jaguar XJ8. Both offer spacious cabins appointed with leather and high-tech accessories. The Jaguar, however, features beautiful wood trim and a more accommodating back row, outclassing the Mercedes in this category.
Mercedes-Benz has long been known for performance, and even has an entire subdivision devoted to fine-tuning engines to create true supercars. So while the Jaguar XJ8 is no slouch, it’s not very surprising that the Mercedes is the winner in this category. A 5.5L V-8, new in the 2007 model, propels the CLS550 to a 0-60 time that is nearly a full second faster than the XJ8 and its 4.2L engine.
This is one area that really comes down to personal taste. Jaguars have a look that all but screams British racing prowess, while the three-pointed star of Mercedes-Benz and the strong stance of every Mercedes vehicle are recognized the world over for reliability and class. Each also came in different factory colors, so that may be a factor to consider as well.
