Depreciation is a fact of life as unavoidable as death or taxes. From the moment your call rolls off of the car lot (even during test drives) it begins to lose value. Normal wear and tear plays a big part is the loss of value in your vehicle, some of the biggest contributing factors to this loss of value are:
- Supply and Demand.
- The Market Price on Big Ticket Items
- Model Year
- Amount of Wear and Tear
What this basically boils down to, is that your trade in is never worth as much as you’d like to get for it. So if you’re ready to trade in your vehicle, upgrade your trade!
We’ve all been in the car dealers office, and most of us have felt that drop in our stomach’s when the dealer comes back with a trade in value that’s far below what we thought we should get. Well, the folks over at Lustine Dodge Jeep Ram are making a really good run at helping their customers get the most out of their trade ins with something they call their Vehicle Upgrade Program.
What Is the Upgrade Program?
Basically, the Upgrade program is made to help buyers get and keep themselves in the newest and safest cars possible. They do this first by guaranteeing to give the customers above market value for their trade in. Think about what that means,
- A Bigger Trade In,
- More of a Down Payment
- Lower Monthly Payments
- Better Financing Terms.
Not to mention that because newer vehicles generally need fewer repairs, and get better gas mileage than their older counterparts customer are saving money on the after costs of vehicle ownership as well. Newer vehicles also come with longer and more comprehensive warranties which mean that owners save money on repair costs as well. All in all, Lustine Dodge is doing their dead level best to get people into the newest, most efficient, safest cars possible.
