Repair or trade tips

Know your repair shop

Fix or trade

Do you have the cash?

What does the track record say?

What does the budget think?

Trade in fixed or not?

Once fixed, what do you have?

Due diligence and compare

You can change your mind

Motorcycles are similar

Resale is a huge factor

Different rules

No Monroney...

Covid, destination, electric and shop before price

Fifteen minutes, twice a week anyway

 The dealer must sanitize after being inside your vehicle

Destination charge isn’t part of used

Destination charges are crazy and add nothing to resale

Electrics are still missing range

Get ready for the push

Sit down and think...

One last list

Noise in the vehicle? Assume the worst

Always check before you buy

CR repairs 5 and 10 years, the best and the worst

In the first 5 often a warranty

5 to 10 are the expensive years

Stats are an indicator of brand

Repairs can mean trade

Make sure yo got what you paid for

Check everything after the delivery...

Truck buying considerations

Classics are condition awareness

Huge truck rebates, questionable results

Now trucks are more than trucks

Resale and discounts

The market remembers huge discounts

The box size

Transmission and resale

Engine, bigger is usually better

4x4 = $x$ Keeps on giving

Know exactly what you need before...
