Life is too short to be certain about so many things. However, there a hand full of things one can predict in life and having to sell your used car is one of them. The rush you had when the car arrived as a gift, or when you went down to the car dealer to pick it up yourself fades eventually few years down the lane. Many factors make us lose interest in an automobile after a short time of driving around.
You know what? Leave whatever it is you’re doing; walk towards your car and check what condition the major parts are in. What does the interior look like? How much would it cost to fix that major repair you’ve had going for months now? If you just found these questions doubting then it is time to sell the car.
Now that we’ve established that you truly need to sell that car, the next question on most car sellers is “when do I sell the car?” and that’s exactly what this article is about.
Lots of cars out there have their warranties last before they cover a maximum of 36,000 miles. Some choose to determine the warranty period on the number of years after purchase from the authorized dealer. For you to know when to sell, you need to be sure of the number of miles the car has journeyed on. This shouldn’t be a difficult thing to do, just have it checked on the dashboard of your car.
If you notice the car has been used past its warranty period, be ready to foot the car repair bills. The other option is for you to notify your insurance company and discuss what agreement works for both parties.
Secondly, you know it is time to sell your used car when the maintenance cost becomes ridiculously high and not getting better by the month. If you have battled with car repair expenses year in and out on the same vehicle, then it just as to go. If you spend your weekends at the automotive repair store on different or the same complaints, that’s a sign to just give up already.
It might seem as though spending a few bucks on car repairs now and then isn’t much until you estimate the total amount spent monthly. Trying to save a car that takes a lot from you financially is poor decision making. If you reach out to a car dealer, ask how much it’ll take to get the same car in the market, you’ll realize it’ll only cost a few bucks more to purchase a new on after selling the scrap metal.
Lastly, if you think your social status now calls for a new automobile, then it’s high time you sold that used car. This is very self-explanatory. There are certain cars you are not expected to be seen hopping out from in social gatherings. Call me materialistic all you want, but you know it and I do also.
Go sell that car already!
