Researching your options and making a plan before you head to a dealership is a great plan for buying a pre-owned car. Doing your research will make sure you get the car you want at the price you can afford. There are a few ways to make sure you find what you want. Below are a few tips to follow when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle.

 

  1. Find out what you can afford.

 

Knowing how much you can spend is probably one of the most important things you need to figure out before you purchase a car. If you plan on taking out a loan, your payment shouldn’t be any more than 20 percent of your take home pay. If you have a tight budget, you probably should aim a little lower than that. It is always better to be prepared for sudden repairs or things you may need to replace on your car. Ownership costs also add up. Your car will need registration and insurance. Knowing all of this information can help you narrow down your options and help you find the perfect car.

 

  1. Figure out what you want.

 

Most people say you should build a list of what you are looking for in a car. If you are looking for a small vehicle, you can add things like a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry. Depending on your budget, you may find a Ford Fusion or a Kia Optima may offer similar features and qualities, but cost less. If you consider more than one brand, you can widen your options and stick to your budget. Figure out what you are willing to compromise on and what options you can’t live without. This will make your search easier.

 

  1. Check the price.

 

After you make your list of vehicles you are interested in, check out the prices. Some models are less expensive than others. Some cars are less expensive when they are one year older than the one you are interested in. Looking at all of your options before you make a decision is always a good choice. Calculate the price of ownership for your top choices and do your research. It will pay off in the long run.

 

There are several benefits to owning a pre-owned car, and buying one shouldn’t be a struggle. At New Jersey State Auto Auction, we make the buying process as simple as possible.

Car Tips to Keep Your Pre-owned Car Top Shape

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Auto Industry News on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 at 2:48 PM

shutterstock_142918999

Owning a car is a huge investment. When you spend money on something like a car, it makes sense that you should want to keep it in tip top shape. There are several methods to keep your car well maintained and below we will look at a few of those methods.

 

  1. Clean your car once a month.

 

Keeping your car clean makes sense, but it can become an arduous task if you don’t clean it often. Cleaning your car not only keeps it looking like new, but it can prevent things like stains or damage. Also washing the exterior will clean off any buildup that can damage the paint. As much time as you probably spend in your car, keeping it clean should be a priority.

 

  1. Change the oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.

 

Depending on your car, how much you drive or the conditions of where you drive can influence your oil useage. Changing your oil in a timely manner will make your engine run smoothly, and you will avoid costly engine repairs. Your engine needs oil to lubricate all of the different parts in your engine. Dirt and debris will collect in the oil over time and can damage your engine. Checking your oil every month can save you time and money in the long run.

 

  1. Check your tire pressure and rotate your tires.

 

Making sure your tires have enough air is important. Without adequate tire pressure you can have problems with poor braking, poor gas milage and instability. Checking your tire pressure is easy. Lots of cars have sensors that can tell you your tire pressure or you can use a gauge. Your car will have a standard tire pressure listed that is the best number for your car. Rotating your tires often will also extend the life of your tires. Tires aren’t cheap. Keeping them rotating will cause them to wear evenly.

 

Keeping your car maintained is important to extend the life of your vehicle. Pre-owned cars, like the ones at New Jersey State Auto Auction, will have a few more miles than a brand new car. These rules still apply no matter how old the vehicle may be. If you are interested in purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, visit us at the New Jersey State Auto Auction.

The Importance of Steering Maintenance – What You Need to Know

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Auto Industry News on Monday, September 19th, 2016 at 2:42 PM

benz logo 3

Having your steering maintained and repaired may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to preventative maintenance, but it is an important service to have completed. There are two different parts to your steering that are usually serviced. These two parts are the power assist and the mechanical parts that steer the vehicle.

 

Modern cars usually have a hydraulic power steering pump that gives you an extra boost that helps you steer. This pump is usually powered by the serpentine belt in your engine. Some new vehicles use their own electric pump. Others have an electric motor that specifically powers the steering. Knowing what kind of power steering you have will help you determine what kind of service you will need.

 

Like any machine, your steering will eventually wear out. Hoses leak and motors lose their steam. You can lengthen the life of your steering components by having them serviced. If you schedule a power steering service every once and awhile, your service technician will drain all of the old fluid from the pump and replace it will all new fluid. This service takes away materials that can potentially corrode the power steering parts like water and other contaminants.

 

Your steering parts are just as important as the power steering. It directs your car where you want it to go. Most service departments, like the one at New Jersey State Auto Auction, will lube your steering parts whenever you get a service like an oil change. Other than a simple lube, there isn’t much else you can do other than look for signs of wear. Usually you can spot issues by looking for uneven tire wear or loose steering.

 

Having your car routinely maintained will save you a lot of money in the long run and make your parts last. If you need to schedule a power steering service or any other service, visit us at New Jersey State Auto Auction. For a full list of our available services, check out our website. We are here to help!

Buying a Used Car is Loaded With Benefits

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Auto Industry News on Thursday, September 15th, 2016 at 7:33 PM

shutterstock_299173520

If you are deciding between purchasing a new or used car, you are in the right place. It is always good to do research before you buy! There are several benefits of owning a pre-owned car. Below we will take a look at a couple that will hopefully help you decide!

 

  1. Extras

 

We all love the features that come on new vehicles. There are usually a bunch of options to choose from that make your car feel like you’re driving around in a spaceship. However, these extras usually add up to way more than you want to spend. Extras can tack on thousands of extra dollars to that new car price. A used car already has all of the features that you want, but are included in the price. You can search for a vehicle that has a specific feature, like navigation, and narrow down your choices. Saving on extras is a huge benefit of buying used.

 

  1. Fees

 

No one likes fees. Except the maybe the people that collect them. New car dealerships usually add on fees for things like shipping charges and destination fees. These fees are obnoxious because you feel like you don’t have anything to show for the charges except less money. Most used car dealerships don’t charge extra fees. When buying a used car from New Jersey Auto Auction, the most you’ll have to deal with is paying title, tag and registration fees at the DMV.

 

  1. Condition

 

Cars these days are made to last for a long time. When buying a used car, you won’t have to sacrifice the condition or reliability of your car just to save a little money. You can find a great car that is in excellent condition for your budget. Be sure to ask if the used car dealership offers any extended warranty, but you will usually be in great shape either way.

 

If you’re looking to purchase a used car, you’re off to a great start. Researching all of your options is always a good choice. Visit us at New Jersey State Auto Auction to take a look at the car you’ve been eyeing or to just look at your options. For more information about our inventory, check out our website!

Used Car Buying: Three Benefits

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Auto Industry News on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 at 7:33 PM

shutterstock_329532386

There are so many great reasons to buy a used car. Knowing the pros and cons before you make your big purchase is important, so you know you’re making the right decision. If you’re looking to buy a used car, below are three benefits that could help you make your decision.

 

  1. Price

 

Everyone knows that used cars will be less expensive than new cars. But to what extent? You can find the car or truck of your dreams available in a later model at a price you can afford. The price of a used car can be almost cut in half compared to a new car price. For example, if you have a luxury SUV on your wishlist, it probably would cost two times as much new as it would used. Your used car won’t depreciate as fast so, ultimately, you are getting the best deal.

 

  1. Sales Tax

 

No one warns you about sales tax. New car sales tax can add up to thousands of dollars. Used cars, however, can be significantly less or even non-existent. Some states don’t require sales tax on used vehicle sales. Doing your research on your state’s tax laws could save you thousands before your next car purchase.

 

  1. Registration Fees

 

We all have to register our vehicles. Registration fees are based on the car’s value and the year it was made. In certain states, registration fees rapidly decrease over the first few years of ownership. When registering a used car, the fees have already decreased since the car is usually a few years old. You can end up saving lots of money on these fees when your car isn’t brand new.

 

All of these are great benefits of owning a used car. At New Jersey State Auto Auction, we want you to find the best vehicle for you! Come visit us to see all of our cars and learn more about our options. For more information, visit our website!

The Importance of Researching Your Vehicle

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in General Auto News on Friday, September 9th, 2016 at 2:33 PM

shutterstock_251529133

When purchasing a pre-owned car, knowing what you are getting is something that is important to many buyers. Knowing the history of your pre-owned vehicle gives drivers peace of mind when making this new investment. Dealerships, like New Jersey State Auto Auction, offer services that give you a complete report on the vehicle you are purchasing.

 

Buyers deserve to know what they are about to spend their hard earned money on and are entitled to a history of the pre-owned vehicle. CARFAX reports are a great way to learn more about the car you are about to buy. Some dealerships offer free reports to customers, providing them a detailed report on their future investment. CARFAX Vehicle History Reports use the car’s vehicle identification number located on the car to gather the unique information and compile it into a thorough report. These reports can influence the final decision of any buyer. These reports can show things like inspection results, service records and accident history. Though every vehicle is thoroughly inspected, the CARFAX report is an added benefit to customers.

 

Knowing all the information you can about your future pre-owned vehicle can save you in the long run. Research like the CARFAX report is an great step. If you are interested in looking at a pre-owned vehicle, visit New Jersey State Auto Auction. For more information about our services and our current stock, check out our website!

Don’t Forget the Details

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in General Auto News on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 at 1:58 PM

shutterstock_145140499

When buying a car, people can get distracted by the thrill of the purchase or excitement over certain features in their new car. It is important to remember that buying a car comes with lots of paperwork. It is helpful to know what you will need and what to look for when buying your vehicle.

 

Most dealerships take care of all of the paperwork for their customers, but it is always good to know what you should expect. Each state has different paperwork involved, so knowing what to look for, especially if you have recently moved or are buying a car out of state, is crucial. To purchase a vehicle in New Jersey, paperwork you should receive from the dealership will include a bill of sale, the title for the vehicle and an odometer reading statement. These documents will be needed for you to register your car at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission’s office. Once the car is registered and the fees are paid, you will get new license plates.

 

The most important document you should look for when purchasing your vehicle is the title. There will be sections that will need to be filled out by both you and the dealership. It will contain information like the price and date of sale, the odometer reading and all of your information.

 

Learning about the process of purchasing a car is helpful and can save you a lot of time. Dealerships, like New Jersey State Auto Auction, can answer any questions you might have when you are purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. If you are interested in learning more about the services at the New Jersey State Auto Auction, visit our offices or check us out online! We would love to help you find your next pre-owned vehicle.

Knowing Your Warranty

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in General Auto News on Monday, September 5th, 2016 at 1:45 PM

shutterstock_422296486

When looking to buy a pre-owned car, researching the vehicle you are interested will help you decide what is the best option for you. Knowing about the warranty of the car you want is extremely helpful and can save you a headache in the future. Most dealerships, like New Jersey State Auto Auction, will have information ready for you, but it is a good idea to do your homework before taking the next step.

 

Car manufacturers offer certain warranties on their new vehicles that tend to expire after a certain period of time or once the car reaches a certain mileage. These warranties are different for each vehicle and can protect new cars from costly problems. Many people believe that buying a used car voids these benefits, but that is untrue.

 

A certified pre-owned vehicle protection plan begins once the original warranty ends. Different brands have different benefits, but car manufacturers like Chevrolet extends their bumper-to-bumper warranty. Other companies like Honda, adds years to their powertrain protection. BMW goes as far as extending their new car warranty, offering owners roadside assistance and emergency services to their pre-owned car drivers. Knowing what warranty and options you have are important and can influence your decision when purchasing your new pre-owned car.

 

At New Jersey State Auto Auction, we can help you look at your options and determine the best fit for you. Doing your research and knowing what you want before you look is very important and will make the buying process much easier.

So you’re in the market for a great pre-owned vehicle. And if you’re smart, you’ve set a budget. After all, it’s so easy to get distracted by all the bright and shiny vehicles on a lot and be tempted to buy something that’s beyond your bank account. If you’ve set a budget of $25,000 or less, there are some great vehicles that fit your budget, according to Autotrader.com.  Let’s take a look at some of theme:

  1. 2013 Buick Encore–this is actually considered a new category, the super-compact premium crossover SUV. It gets great gas mileage and has a super quiet interior.
  2. 2013 Camaro—This packs a lot of fun into your budget. The Camaro V6 Coupe is one hot looking car, plus it delivers 300 horsepower. With the automatic transmission, you’ll get 30 mph while having fun on the road.
  3. 2013 Dodge Dart—Yes, it’s a subcompact, but the backseat can handle two adults comfortably. And with an Alfa Romeo-derived suspension, it’s bellissima at less than $16K.
  4. 2013 Fiat 500—You’ll get mucho fun for about $16K, plus 31 mph city/40 mph hwy with the manual. You also get a peppy standard 1.4-liter MultiAir engine.

Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle with Peace of Mind

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in General Auto News on Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 at 10:44 AM

NJSAA 5 shutterstock_495764

Does the idea of buying a pre-owned vehicle sound good to you? After all, you don’t end up with that instant depreciation that you do when you buy a new car. And, with so many Americans leasing vehicles, there are more quality pre-owned vehicles on the market than ever.

But how can you be sure you’re buying a great pre-owned vehicle?  Actually, there are several ways you can be sure.

  1. Buy from a reputable dealer, instead of an individual. Let’s face it.  With social media sites like Yelp out there, if a business isn’t reputable, it’s easy to find out about it. Look for a dealer who has been in business for a long time. Common sense tells you, a business can’t be around for long, if they don’t treat customers right.
  2. Make sure you get a warranty–and one that lasts longer than a week. At New Jersey State Auto, we provide a three month/5,000 mile warranty with every vehicle–plus you get Roadside Assistance, too.
  3. Check out the CarFax report. This report will tell you how many owners the vehicle has had, and if there is clear title.  In addition, you’ll know what kinds of accident the vehicle has been involved in, and you can see if the appropriate repairs have been performed. Plus, all vehicles checked with carFax have the CarFax BuyBack Guarantee at New Jersey State Auto.
  4. Pay for a Mechanic Inspection before you buy. While it will cost you a little money, it will provide you with great peace of mind. With a mechanic inspection, you’ll learn if the right kinds of replacement parts have been used, and if major repairs will be needed in the near future.
  5. Look beyond the exterior. Sure, it might look like new on the outside, but look under the hood, too.  If you see rust, it probably hasn’t been maintained well.

At New Jersey State Auto, we’re here to help you find the right vehicle at the right price.  We’ll answer all of your questions, so you feel confident with your purchase.

2017 Audi A3 Earns High Safety Rating

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Audi on Monday, August 29th, 2016 at 10:37 AM

NJSAA 4 shutterstock_307390028

The 2017 Audi A3 received a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2017 Audi S3 also received top marks from the organization. Both vehicles will be on the market beginning October 2017. This spectacular safety rating applies to each edition of the vehicles, both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. Both high scores in the extensive testing performed. These tests include a front crash test, side crash test and a rollover crash test. These assessments allow the  National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to properly administer the most accurate score possible.

The 2017 Audi A3 and the 2017 S3 have been updated with several safety features that come standard in each model. One of the features included is a radar-based system that warns drivers of potential forward collisions. This system also is equipped with automatic braking.

The 2017 Audi A3 also has standard antilock brakes, a rearview camera, traction control and stability control. There is also a new feature called Audi Pre Sense Basic. This feature automatically tightens seatbelts and closes windows if it senses a potential frontal crash. Another option available on specific models is active lane keeping assist. This system alerts drivers if they begin to stray from their lane if they are traveling over 40 mph. Numerous other safety options are available on the Audi A3.

As Audi continues to increase the safety with the addition of new technology to their new vehicles, you can expect the same level of safety and quality engineering from a pre-owned Audi. To view a wide selection of pre-owned models, visit New Jersey State Auto Auction.

The Importance Of Keeping Your Vehicle Clean

Let’s face it – cars aren’t cheap. When you buy a new car you have to buy all the fancy interior accessories to vamp it up, get insurance for your car, etc. and all these expenses are apart from the main cost of the car. So if you already have a car that hasn’t done too many miles and is still in good working condition there are several ways to make your old and run down car look brand new with a few tips and tricks.

Get everything cleaned – inside and out!

For some of us, our car becomes our second home and we tend to hoard just about anything and everything in it. From books to clothes to important papers from the office, our car becomes a dumping ground for all our junk. Set aside an entire day or week if you have to and remove everything from your car that has no business being there. Take your car to the professional cleaners or a good car wash and have it scrubbed down thoroughly. Or you could buy the necessary cleaning agents and detergents and clean your car yourself and save money.

Shampoo the seats and carpet thoroughly, clean out the trunk and remove the spare tire to get in there as much as possible to get all the dirt and crap out. Remove the seat cushions and get inside every nook and cranny of your car upholstery. You can even remove the front seats and use a vacuum cleaner. Clean the engine thoroughly and don’t forget the underneath of your car. If you’re cleaning your car after a really long time, then make sure to give it a 100 percent.

The Little Details That Keep An Old Vehicle In Great Shape

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 at 2:29 PM

http://www.autogaleria.hu -

Instead of going out and buying a new car try out some easy tips and tricks to transform your old car and make it look brand new by spending just a little money.

Replace the rubber

The seal of your car doors against the rubber trim is sensitive to rips and tears as time goes by. These rips or tears can cause air gaps that will create a howling noise from the wind outside while driving. These tears can also allow heat to escape when it’s cool outside and vice versa, i.e. – allow cool air to escape when it’s hot outside. These gaps or tears can also allow water to leak in from outside when it’s raining.

It will take a lot of time, patience and expertise to replace these rubber trims or strips of the car doors as well as a knack with glues and adhesives. The rubber strips are not expensive and are easily available in any car store. You can get help installing the new rubber strips which will instantly make your car much quieter and noise free. However, you don’t have to necessarily replace the rubber seals of the car doors if they are still in usable and decent shape. But if they seem ragged or brittle to you then don’t think twice to replace them with new ones.

If you’re changing your car door rubber seals then you might also want to change the rubber wiper blades on your windshield and deal with the rainy season appropriately.

Simple Ways To Keep Your Old Vehicle Running Like It Is Still New

Going out and buying a brand new car might not be the best idea especially when you have other loans to pay off and income is tight. Also, there are lots of ways to make your old car look new without spending a huge amount of money. All you need to have is a car in good working condition that just needs a little makeover and touching up.

The headlamps

Cars that are a few decades old are built with headlamps that have plastic composites that tend to become dull and deteriorated over time and may need to be replaced. The headlamps might develop a weathered look which will automatically make your car look years older than it actually is. There are headlamps available for 25 to 30 dollars that are really easy to install and use. Replacing an old and dull headlamp with a new one can make your car look newer and brighter and can help improve illumination.

The air conditioner

Just like your air conditioner at home, the AC in your car can have buildups of mildew, mold, and bacteria that can clog the AC vents and decrease the output of cold air. To clean out your AC first make sure that the air entering your AC isn’t passing through dust, leaves and other grime that might be accumulated in the AC passageways. After this, you can clean your AC filters or change the filter systems. Finish off with some air-conditioning spray or deodorizer and your car will look and smell as good as new!

All You Need To Know About CVT Transmissions

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, August 19th, 2016 at 9:24 PM

Jeep Compass

The hydrostatic CVT is quite different from other CVTs, in that, it is not a frictional CVT system. Here, variable-displacement pumps are used to control the fluid flow to hydrostatic motors. In this system, a hydrostatic pump on the driving side is operated by the engine’s rotational motion. The rotational motion is then turned into fluid flow by the pump.

On the driven side, we have a hydrostatic motor that creates rotational motion by converting the fluid flow.

Hydrostatic transmissions, often, come with a set of planetary gears and clutches.  This results in a hybrid system referred to as a hydro-mechanical transmission. Such transmission systems allow power transfer from wheel to engine in 3 modes. First, there is the hydraulic transmission of power, which occurs at low speeds, then, we have the mechanical transmission of power, which occurs at high speeds,. In between high and low speeds, the system uses both, mechanical and hydraulic power transmission methods.

Hydro-mechanical transmission systems are used in heavy duty vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles and farm tractors.

On the whole, we have seen the various advantages of a CVT system over other transmission systems. They are more fuel efficient because of how they maintain optimum power range. They offer step-less acceleration, which eliminates the shift shock experienced in other transmission systems.

The Variations Of CVT Transmissions

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 at 9:19 PM

Nissan Versa CVT Transmission

For starters, we have what is known as the Toroidal CVT system. This particular system uses power rollers instead of belts and discs. Though the parts seem very different, they are basically different versions of what you find in the belt and pulley system. In the end what you get is still a Continuously Variable Transmission.

In a Toroidal CVT,

  • One disc is connected to the engine, just like a driving pulley.
  • The second disc is connected to the drive shaft, just like the driven pulley.
  • Rollers, positioned between the discs, function like belts. They are responsible for transmitting power.

The wheels in this system rotate along their axes. They rotate around a horizontal axis and tilt (in/out) around a vertical axis. This allows the wheels to come in contact with the discs.

When the wheels come in contact with the center of the driving disc, they should contact the rim of the driven disc. This cause speed to reduce and torque to increase. In the opposite scenario, the speed increases and the torque goes down. So, with the wheels simply tilting, we have incremental changes in gear ratio.  This ultimately results in instant changes of the gear ratio.

A CVT transmission is a dream to drive; even if it’s in a used car. So, why don’t you get in touch with New Jersey State Auto Auction and find yourself a nice, pre-owned CVT vehicle?
