Buying a great vehicle from a great dealer

Car dealers sell their vehicle depending on the supply and demand for that particular make. A vehicle is mainly worth what someone is willing to pay for it and people will pay above selling price for a vehicle in high demand.

There’s a lot more than simply negotiating with a seller. You must do your homework, research the vehicle you’re interested in. Find out what similar vehicles are selling for factoring in the mileage, year, condition etc.. It’s not always an easy task but with just a little patience, you’ll be able to come up with an pretty close estimate to the actual value.

Keep in mind that when purchasing a vehicle for a really great deal doesn’t mean that you’re purchasing junk. Sometimes a salesman will cut their commission just so they sell the vehicle to get rid of the stock. No matter who you’re purchasing a car from, you have to expect some negotiating which is why researching before you go into the showroom is necessary.

You should research your financing options. Compare interest rates through financial institutions, banks, loan companies or the dealership.

The Skinny on Nearly New Vehicles

Buying a nearly new vehicle is so much easier today than it used to be. A two to four year old used car can offer the customer the same reliability, performance, style and comfort that a new car can. Cars are built much better nowadays so a four year old car drives a lot like a new one, PLUS it sells up to 60% less than a new vehicle.

Dealers now offer the consumer another level of protection in the form of certified used vehicles. These are nearly new cars that meet specific qualifying standards. These vehicles have been carefully inspected, serviced and are backed up by extra warranties. The consumer can also purchase additional after market warranties.

One of the biggest changes these days are how cars are bought. You can now shop online for a car from all across the country. Shoppers should be more cautious when purchasing a vehicle using this route.

It is extremely important to do your research before you buy. Prudent Value Cars offers top quality, pre-owned cars and trucks with low kilometres. Please visit our inventory at

Car check list before a long road trip

You may feel that your car drives well and is in great running order but that doesn’t necessarily mean your car can withhold a long road trip. You need to make sure your car is ready to go the distance and want to avoid any mechanical problems if possible.

Here is a checklist on things to go over before your road trip:

Check under the hood

It’s always best to change the oil before any long road trip. You want to check the transmission fluid, coolant, battery, hoses and belts. Your engine will work harder on a long road trip and you’ll want to make sure there are no cracks in the hoses or belts.

Check your tires

Check the tires, suspension and the steering. Make sure you have the right tire pressure. Recommended pressure should be indicated in the owners manual. There is a safe limit of the tread wear, if the tread is below this limit, it is unsafe to drive. Take a trip to your reliable mechanic a couple weeks prior to your trip to check steering and suspension. This will leave you enough room should there be a need to get work done. Also get your mechanic to check the CV joints.

Check equipment

Check your lights, horn and wipers. A spare set of wipers should be on your list to bring along. Check the window washer fluid and also carry a gallon along with you on your trip. Check the AC and heater and make sure there are no noises. If there is, have your mechanic take a look to confirm all is okay with the heating and cooling system.

Check your spare tire

A spare tire and a jack are definitely needed. Check to make sure that the spare tire has air. The jack and the lug nut wrench must be the right size for the car.
Don’t forget an emergency kit while travelling long distance and enjoy your ride.
