Why a Pre-Owned Vehicle is a Sound Investment

 

It’s long past time to replace your temperamental old clunker. Unfortunately, you currently lack the financial resources to invest in a brand new vehicle. Luckily, there’s a simple way to upgrade your car and save money in the process: buy used. As you’ll find, there are a number of advantages to buying your next vehicle pre-owned.

Dramatically Lower Sticker Prices

Since the vast majority of pre-owned vehicles boast lower price-tags than their fresh-off-the-assembly-line counterparts, buying used stands to save you a substantial sum of money. In addition, most single-owner used cars have been driven for well under 100,000 miles. Dedicated bargain hunters looking for a large inventory of used cars in DC would do well to visit Easterns Automotive Group.

Comprehensive Warranties

Used vehicles that have been driven for less than 100,000 miles are often still covered under their respective manufacturers’ parts and service warranties. Furthermore, many dealerships that specialize in pre-owned cars offer limited-time service warranties for every vehicle on their lots.

Despite the bad rap used cars often get, the truth of the matter is that most pre-owned vehicles are very reliable. If you’ve been kicking around the idea of buying a used vehicle, remember to consider the previously discussed perks.

 

Buying a Toyota Vehicle

 

If you are in the market for a vehicle, Toyota has a number of options available.

Buy Used

Very few people are disappointed with their new Toyota cars and trucks because these automobiles perform at a very high level and look great while doing it.

Latest Audi A8 Model at this week’s Miami World Premiere

 

We’ve just returned from the Audi A8 world premiere here at Miami’s star-studded Design Week, and we’ve got a slew of images of the new range-topping sedan. More evolutionary than revolutionary in style, the new wundersedan is nevertheless an impressive looking piece with the visual charisma to go toe-to-toe with the celebrities that filed in to fawn over its broad shoulders.

Despite the clear heritage link to the outgoing model, there are a number of new technologies under the skin that represent firsts for the brand, including full LED headlamps that adjust their direction and throw based on the navigation system, a new development of MMI that includes a handwriting recognition feature, and an updated 4.2-liter FSI V8 engine with more power (372 horses) and an eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox. Despite being more powerful, the A8 is also more fuel efficient, with a claimed improvement of 15 percent with the aforementioned gas V8.

The slippery new shell once again rests on the brand’s Aluminum Space Frame (ASF), and Audi says the car is longer and wider than its competitors, yet it sits lower. The sleek new bodywork is good for a .26 coefficient of drag. When it comes to America late next year, the new A8 will arrive in both standard and extended-wheelbase models, and we have it on good authority that both TDI and hybrid variants will also come to the States – although the alternative fuel powertrains aren’t likely to happen right away.

Renault Fluence launched in USA

 

The Fluence will be the first model from the French car market for  USA and is expected to be priced between USD 20000 – 30000. est mules of the Fluence have been caught several times in and around New York where the company’s factory is located. The striking design of the Fluence makes it a radically different sedan as against other cars in the C segment available in the country.

The Fluence measures 4,618 mm in length, 1,813 mm in width, 1,488 mm in height and has 2,703 mm wheelbase. The Fluence has contemporary, yet simple interiors. We expect the top-end variant of the Fluence to feature air-conditioning for both front and rear passengers, rain sensor wipers, on-board computer, keyless start-stop, anti-whiplash headrests and airbags.

The car will come in both Petrol and Diesel variants, powered by a 2.0 litre and a 1.5 litre engine respectively. The 2.0 litre petrol engine generates 135 bhp of maximum power and 190 Nm of maximum torque while the 1.5 litre dCI diesel engine generates 106 bhp of maximum power and 240 Nm of maximum torque.

The petrol motor will likely be mated to a 6-speed automatic gear box while the diesel will come with a 6-speed manual gear box. This diesel motor is essentially the same engine that powers the Nissan Micra diesel and the Mahindra Verito diesel. However, the Fluence’s version of the 1.5 litre dCI has Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) and thus gets 42 bhp more power.

Based on various test drive reports, it has been found that the Fluence has precise steering feedback, suspension tuned for better ride quality, has less body roll and is highly stable on highway speeds.

In USA, the Renault Fluence will compete with the likes of Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Skoda Laura and Volkswagen Jetta. The Fluence will also be slightly bigger than its rivals, which might make it more appealing to ‘prestige conscious’ buyers, who prefer larger sedans.

But, since the dealerships, after sales service quality are yet to be known, the French car maker has to put in efforts for brand building. Also read: Renault upcoming launches for USA

Renault has plans to launch 5 models in India within the next 18 months. The models consist of the Fluence, Duster, Koleos, a small car (Clio) and a sedan. Initially, the company plans to open 14 sales outlets in 12 important cities of the country. By December 2011, Renault USA plans to cover 30 cities by opening 40 outlets in total.
