It’s Time For The Clunker To GoNew Cars Dec 8th, 2020
We know that the old clunker you have sitting in your driveway holds many precious memories for you. Unfortunately, it has likely deteriorated and depreciated to the point that it has nothing left but sentimental value. The truth is, it is time for the clunker to go.
4 REASONS TO TRADE YOUR OLD CLUNKER
1. YOUR CLUNKER LOOKS AND FEELS BAD
Let's be honest. Beyond the nostalgia, there is nothing charming about your old vehicle. It's rusty, the seat might be torn and the air conditioner probably isn't working well. Even if your clunker wasn't neglected, years of wear-and-tear have left it less than inviting to others.
2. YOUR CLUNKER IS UNRELIABLE AND COULD BE DANGEROUS
Old vehicles are not reliable. No one wants to get stuck at the side of the road waiting for a tow due to an issue related to the age of the vehicle. Additionally, your clunker may be missing key safety features like ABS systems or even seat belts, depending on the year it was built.
3. YOUR CLUNKER IS COSTING YOU MORE
It is true that all vehicles are expensive. Clunkers cost more to maintain over time though. As they age, they require additional maintenance. Parts that deteriorate will need to be replaced too. Insurance premiums can be more expensive for your clunker, and emission testing and repairs can also add up. Finally, your old vehicle is not as fuel efficient as a new vehicle and will cost you more at the pumps.
4. YOUR CLUNKER IS NOT ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Old clunkers run on the environmental standards of yesteryear. They guzzle more gas, and have a tendency to lose fuel due to leaks and evaporation. Green initiatives have changed the automotive industry in recent years, and manufacturers are now focused on building vehicles that are fuel-efficient with low CO2 emissions.
