Sometimes, life happens. When it happens to your car, however, it can leave you not only without transportation but without a way to get to work or get your kids to school. Lustine Toyota has made great strides toward taking the headache and surprises out of getting your car serviced with a program that they call Auto4Life. This great new program covers all of the big cost repairs that can come up unexpectedly like:
- Drive Train
- Power Train
- Drive Axles
What is Auto4Life
This program basically covers all the internal lubricated systems (pistons, etc…) in your car so that if the worst happens it won’t break your bank, and the best part is that this service is offered at no additional cost, and lasts as long as you own the vehicle. That’s right, there are no time or mileage restrictions.
When buying a new or used car, one of the most important things to consider is what they call the hidden costs of buying a car. What this basically means is that you have to take into account not only the monthly payment when it comes to budgeting for your new vehicle but also the additional costs like
- Monthly Insurance
- Possible Garaging Fees
- Regular Repairs
According to Triple A, the average cost of maintenance for late model cars is around $913.50 per year, which when you factor that amount over the average five-year auto loan comes out to an additional $4567.50 over the life of your car loan.
Now this is just accounting for your average repair costs like
- oil changes
- spark plugs
Lustine Toyota also offers a program called Lifetime Bumper2Bumper which covers all systems on your car for as long as you own it, again with no mileage or time restrictions. With these programs, Lustine Toyota has gone a long way toward eliminating the headache of car repair bills and eliminating a great deal of the hidden cost of owning a car.
