My experience was fantastic. I came in to look around and found a nice car. Donny got me pre-approved to test drive the car. Original I was going to have to make the down payment in two parts. When I came in with the bulk of the down payment and left,Donny called me back in about 30 minutes saying "Come get your car girl". I couldn't believe it. Not only was I able to get my car but Eddie also dropped the cost of the car. This place is "da bomb!!!"

Warning Signs  of  Car  Trouble

 

How much and how often do you depend on your car?  Easy answer isn’t it?  You depend on your car quite a bit every single day, right?  Your daily tasks, needs, wants, and responsibilities would be incredibly hard to meet if you didn’t have your car, wouldn’t they?  Take into consideration all the things you typically do in a single day; take the kids to school, go to work, if your lunch hour is long enough, you run errands on lunch, pick the kids up from school and/or any after-school programs, attend doctor appointments, go to the grocery store, and finally—run more errands—quite a bit for one day.  Most non-married Americans, and even some married couples, only have one car, which is the heart that keeps them alive day-to-day.  Can you imagine how much more difficult it would be to complete these daily tasks if your car was down for repairs and you had to rely on public transportation?

Many people seem to be under the notion that when their car malfunctions; it comes from nowhere with no warning signs—that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Your car will almost always let you know when a problem is developing that will require mechanical work and sometimes immediate attention.  The problem is; many people ignore a car’s warning signs until its too late, which is usually the same time an unexpected engine failure occurs and leaves the owner stranded roadside.  Today we’ll be discussing how to recognize your car’s warning signs and to when your car is trying to tell you something’s wrong.  Despite the unfortunate reality that your car may need repairs, a positive is that in most cases, you don’t have to be an ASE Certified Mechanic to know when something’s wrong because your gives you obvious signals.

 

Service  Engine  Light

This is the number one warning sign something is wrong with your car—your engine light will come on.  DO NOT ignore your engine light simply because you may not visibly notice any difference in your car’s performance—find out right away what’s wrong and remember the ‘Service Engine’ light doesn’t come on for nothing.  Most part stores can use an OBD II Scanner to read the DTCs in your car’s system.  Some OBD II scanners will be able to indicate exactly what the problem is while others will give you an ‘idea’, and at least point you in the right direction.  There is no charge for a parts store attendant to check the DTCs and it only takes a couple minutes, and may also save you a lot of money.

 

Fluid  Leaks

Fluid leaks are a clear indication of a possible or developing problem, and it’s good to know what kind of leak you may have.  Here’s a color chart to help.

Fluid                                       Fluid Color

Coolant/Antifreeze                 Green (most common), Pink (DEXCOOL)

Power Steering                       Clear, Bright Red

Transmission Fluid                Dark Red

Motor Oil                                  Dark Black, Light Brown

Brake Fluid                              Clear

 

Sluggish  Performance  &  Drivability

If you have noticed decreased acceleration, or slow and sluggish acceleration, it could indicate a transmission problem, poor fuel circulation, a hole in the muffler or exhausts, as well as host of additional mechanical issues—do not ignore this sign.

 

Troubled  or  Slow  Starts

If your car isn’t starting the same there’s a good chance something is wrong.  This could be the result of a bad or failing battery, a failing starter or alternator, a bad ignition, a failing fuel pump or fuel filter, and clogged fuel injectors.  There are several other possible mechanical failure that could trigger a slow starting vehicle, but those listed are among the most common.

 

Noises

Noises are very good warning signs and will not steer you wrong.  You know when you hear a squeaking near your front tires, it’s time for new brakes.  If your car suddenly sounds like an airplane has landed in your driveway, you probably have an exhaust leak or a hole in your exhaust/muffler.  A thudding sound can mean anything from a flat tire or bad CV joint/axle to severe engine trouble—pay attention to the noises your car makes.

 

Vibration  &  Pulling

Vibration and pulling are also excellent warning signs.  If you’re experiencing any level of vibration and/or pulling it could mean that you need an alignment, bad brakes and/or rotors, bad tires, or additional suspension-related issues.  Nonetheless, do not take these things lightly, and have your car inspected by your mechanic as soon as possible.

 

The moral of the story is simple—don’t ignore your car’s warning signs!

Ride Now Motors – Customer Service

It is a shame that we now perceive talking to a human straight away when we call a large corporation ‘Good Customer Service’, or refreshing. Long gone are the days where talking to a telephone operator was standard procedure. I’m sure that there are people out there who are pleased with that situation, however at Ride Now Motors we feel that 99% of the population would much rather talk to a human being, rather than a faceless, electronic voiced entity.

Well, we want to work with that 99%. Buying a car, new or used, is a big investment, normally coming second to a house purchase. It is our aim to not only have superior sales staff to help you find and finance your next vehicle, but amazing support staff to ensure that you are happy with your vehicle, long term.

We take great measures to ensure the car and trucks that appear on our sales lots are fully inspected prior to going on sale. We have worked incredibly hard to define our buying processes to ensure that we are selling the most reliable, reputable vehicles in the marketplace today. It is our intention to keep the attention to detail going in our after purchase care of our customers.

Regardless of the precautions we take in purchasing and preparing our vehicles, something can, or will go wrong during the time that you own the vehicle. That, we just can’t help. During the financing period our customers could face a wide range of financial difficulties or life events. That, they can’t help. What we can help however is how we deal with issues, as and when they do arise.

Ride Now Motors approaches their customer service in the same as we approach our sales initiatives, in the respect that we like to be a little bit different. We have a vast amount of experience to call upon as a result of the thousands of cars we have sold and the many years we have spent in the industry. We know that bad things can happen to good people, more importantly, we are also aware that most challenges in life are short term at best.

We are proud to have staff dedicated to work with our customers throughout the process of resolving challenges. We understand that being passed from department to department, and associate to associate, can be very, very frustrating indeed. Being able to contact one person and deal with them directly is something that we felt our customers would find incredibly advantageous. Sounds like common sense? We thought so as well.

We don’t have strict policies for how we deal with different issues either. Each challenge is unique to that customer and categorizing them prior to discussing the situation with them. Does this mean that we will always be able to help? No. As wonderful as that would be, it just isn’t realistic. Treating our customers with respect and trying to help IS realistic however.

No one aspect of a customers experience in purchasing a used car is going to make it exceptional. At Ride Now Motors we believe that it takes a combination of factors that come together and result in the amazing reviews that we receive on a daily basis.

Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers Matter

 

How many times have you driven past a ‘Buy Here, Pay Here’ car dealer and thought to yourself, “yeah right?”  Probably quite a few times, huh!?  Well, there’s an old saying; “Don’t knock it before you try it”—heard that one, right?  Within the last 5 years, Buy Here, Pay Here dealers have become the “go-to” source for used car shoppers.  Due to a growing clientele, BHPH auto dealers have also experienced a significant rise in profits.  A majority of the car-buying population and experts believe BHPH dealers and lots are ‘rip-offs’ and an abomination to the automotive sales industry due to the lack of quality vehicles, high interest rates, and bi-weekly payments.  Despite popular belief, Buy Here, Pay Here dealers can actually be quite beneficial, so before we ‘knock-it’, let’s take a look at why we should ‘try-it’.

 

Aids  Credit-and-Financially-Challenged  Consumers

Perhaps the biggest reason Buy Here, Pay Here dealerships are experiencing a growth spurt is because they go above and beyond to cater to the ‘challenged’ consumer.  BHPH dealers exclusively target the credit-challenged and financially-challenged consumer market.  These are the consumers with ‘less-than-perfect-credit’ for whatever reasons; maybe they have a withstanding repo or below-average credit score.  These consumers are usually the 9-to-5ers that work and live paycheck-to-paycheck, desperately fighting to stay afloat, and trying to stretch every hard-earned dollar as far as they could.  By the time these consumers find their way to a Buy Here, Pay Here dealer; they’ve already been declined, denied, laughed-at, and shooed away by the big-name dealers, and often feel that they’re out of options or that no one can or will help them.  BHPH dealers openly welcome these consumers, and in most cases, are able to find a dependable used car for the buyer.

 

 

Lower  Down  Payments

Another great reason for choosing to purchase a car from a Buy Here, Pay Here dealer is that they typically have lower down payments, which allows you, the consumer, to get into your new, used car just a little bit faster.  The average, or major car dealership usually requires a minimum of $1500 or more as a down payment—sometimes this is even with a ‘trade-in’.  The average BHPH dealer only requires approximately $500 to $1000; with the $1000 requirement only necessary in rare cases.  Many BHPH will even ‘hold’ a car for you with only a $100 security deposit, which can later be applied towards your $500 down payment—not bad, huh!?

 

In-House  Financing  &  Payments

Now, this is the reason Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are called, ‘Buy Here, Pay Here’, and perhaps the primary reason for their increasing clientele.  Unlike the major auto dealers; Chevy, Toyota, Ford, GMC; just to name a few, BHPH dealers have their own, on-site financing department and doesn’t require mediation with a 3rd-Party lender.  This enables them to make their own terms which cater specifically to each individual consumer’s needs.  There is a slight downside to this; most BHPH dealers require bi-weekly payments instead of monthly payments like their big-name counterparts.  This is the reason many critics argue that Buy Here, Pay Here car lots are a rip-off because you pay twice a month for a car that is ‘allegedly’ not worth it.  Seemingly, what they fail to realize this is the norm for any industry that offers assistance to credit and financially challenged consumers.  Last time we checked—the credit card industry does the same thing—do they not have higher interest rates for ‘high-risk’ account holders?  Slightly higher payments are common knowledge among BHPH customers.

 

The  Bottom  Line

The bottom line is this—Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are doing better in sales and demand than their big-name rivalries because they are home to the ‘troubled-consumer’ market that no one else wants—which just so happens to be a hungry, thriving market.  There will always be ‘naysayers’ and critics to speak against anything; supermarkets, a restaurant chain, Obamacare—or whatever, so you just have to ignore them, do your own research, and make a decision for yourself.  No matter what the critics say—the end result is that Buy Here, Pay Here dealers are helping the people that truly need it and has been turned away by everyone else—something the ‘big-rigs’ may want to try.
