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!

How  to  Establish A  Monthly  Budget

 

In today’s working class, which is practically every able-bodied adult, everyone wants to earn, save, or invest enough money to do more than simply, ‘get-by’, right?  The plague of this never-ending cycle otherwise known as ‘paying bills’, never seems to loosen its grip upon the people of the United States.  The U.S economy has stumbled since 2008, when the current recession began; making it more difficult for the working class to earn a living and provide for their families.  Statistics and reports have shown a steady increase in unemployment rates across the country, corporate downsizing, layoffs, and overseas outsourcing, and as of June 2014, the National Deficit was a reported $17.6 trillion dollars!

Despite popular belief, the U.S. has not recovered from the recession; little progress has been made to be quite honest.  Because of a dilapidated economy, many people have resorted to alternative means of supplementing their income, unfortunately, these means only places them farther into debt.  Reluctantly, many people chosen to ‘cash-out’ their 401Ks as an alternative source of income, sadly, this is only a temporary solution that consumes all retirement savings.  Others have taken out repeated payday and title loans, whose interest rates are astronomical as Wikipedia explains how a $100 14-day loan can have an interest rate anywhere from 391% to 3733%!  There are also heavy repercussions for defaulting on a payday or title loan; it can severely damage your credit, you can be legally sued in a court of law, and you could even lose your car.

With the economic status as defunct as it is, many working class Americans, the middle-class more specifically, have realized now, more than ever, the importance and necessity of budgeting and adapting to ‘get-by’ with ‘less’.  For some reason, the word ‘budget’ and/or ‘budgeting’, causing a lot of people to cringe.  Why?  Because when you budget, you have to place financial restrictions upon yourself, you have to differentiate ‘wants’ from ‘needs’, and you can no longer indulge or splurge on those wants—and the truth is, no one likes the thought of having to do that, and no one wants to do that.  So now the question is; how do you create a monthly budget?

Find  Motivation  to  Budget

Well, first of all, you start by getting yourself in the mindset of doing the things mentioned in the last paragraph.  Find a source of motivation; maybe you’re trying to buy a new house or car, or maybe you know your kids are depending on you to provide for them—whatever it is, find a reason to get and stay motivated and self-disciplined.  If you know why, you've decided to start budgeting, and if you have a specific goal as the end result, you’re more likely to see it through and be successful.

 

Why  A  Monthly  Budget?

The reason for budgeting on a monthly scale is because that’s how 90% or more of the working class operates, society itself actually; on a month-to-month basis.  Think about it; you pay bills monthly, your job pays twice per month, businesses calculate their annual profit and loss by monthly totals—this is simply the way America functions, we’re a ‘monthly’ country.  Therefore, you need to be able maintain month-to-month.

 

Set  Your  Goals

Although a goal can be a source of motivation, it is not the same as motivation.  Your motivation is your ‘driving-force’, so-to-speak, your ‘goal’, is what you’re actually working to accomplish and achieve by budgeting.  It’s a good practice to set long-term and short-term goals.  An example of a short-term goal would be buying that new car, or a late model used car, in one year.  Always remember you can modify your goals as needed, and you should always know ‘why’ you’re working towards a goal, and lastly, your goals are always priority.

 

Be  Aware  of  Your  Income

Before you can create a budget, you have to know how much money or income will be available to you each month.  The best way to get that amount is to base your budget upon your Net Income.  Your net income is essentially the amount of your paycheck after taxes and deductions.  Once you have that figure, you can then begin planning your budget.

 

Planning  Your  Budget

Split your net income between ‘fixed expenses’, such as a monthly car payment, and ‘variable expenses’ such as grocery shopping totals, which may vary.  Monitor these expenses to determine what adjustments can or should be made, and what works best for you.  It’s always a good idea to maintain some type of savings in cases of emergency.

 

Track,  Track,  &  Track

Always track your spending.  This can be a major headache, a migraine actually, but there are plenty of software programs to assist you in accomplishing this.  Most Android and iPhones even have apps that can help you as well.  And if all else fails, simply hold on to your receipts.

 

Customizing  Your  Budget

Budgeting doesn't have to viewed as a punishment, there are perks to it, afterall, it is ‘your’ budget, so tailor it to your measurements until it fits ‘you’, that is, unless you’re the husband, then ‘she’ sets the rules.  Keep in mind, you can only customize the ‘variable expenses’ portion of your budget—the ‘fixed expenses’ are labeled that for a reason.  An example is; maybe you cut back on dining out and going to the movies so you’ll have extra cash for the new HD flat screen TV—do what works best for you.

How to Terminate Your Car Lease/Loan Early

 

We all know what a great feeling it is to buy or lease a new car, right?  Nothing better than that, especially when it still has that ever-popular, ‘new-car-smell’ that you just can’t get enough of, rightFurthermore, you know you’re not going to have any mechanical problems for quite a while, it looks great, has great gas mileage, it’s affordable, it’s what you wanted, and most of all, your neighbors are jealous!  So let’s ask the question most people who just bought or leased a new car doesn't want to consider – What happens when the ‘new-car-smell’ wears off, the neighbors are no longer jealous, and you suddenly believe that perhaps this wasn't the best deal or car for you; how do you get out of the lease/loan early when you’re already a year or two into the deal?

According to “Walkaway Canada”, a Canadian auto leasing franchise, there are a few primary reasons people decide to get out of their auto lease or loan early. 

v  Job Loss – A person may be terminated or indefinitely laid off from their employer which will result in an inability to meet the financial responsibility of the auto lease/loan.

v  Disability – A person may become stricken with a physical disability, presumably, the result of an unfortunate auto or sports accident or injury.

v  Driver License Issues – Traffic tickets and excessive points against a person’s driving record can result in a revoked or suspended driver’s license.

Regardless of your reason for choosing to terminate your auto lease early, you should always know your options, as well as the specific terms and conditions of your particular agreement.  Knowing and having this information will only assist you in successfully terminating your lease early.

Once you've made the decision to end your auto lease early, you have to understand what that entails which is everything from preparing the car for return to the dealership to paying costly penalties and fees.  Most auto industry professionals and leasing experts will not hesitate to confess that auto leases weren't designed to be broken.  Nonetheless, many have also gone on record to state that almost any auto lease can be broken or terminated early—you just have to know your options and the correct way to have a successful and early termination.

 

Preparing  the  Vehicle  for  Return

Preparing the car for return will more than likely be the simplest, less expensive part of the early lease termination process.  This includes washing and detailing the car, ensuring all the routine maintenance has been properly taken care of is up to date.  Be sure to take photos of the vehicle after it has been detailed and be sure to take photos of the odometer, engine, and tire tread.  You want the car to look as good as it did when you first leased it.

 

Early  Lease-Ending  Options

There are several basic and most-common options for terminating your lease early which includes; returning the vehicle to the dealer, trade-in, payment take over, selling the vehicle, or buying the vehicle from the leasing company. 

v  Return to Dealer – Usually involves penalties and most expensive option. Some creditors view this as defaulting on a financial loan/responsibility and it can potentially have a negative effect on your credit report.

v  Trade-In – Lease new car from same dealer. Also expensive. Original penalties rollover into new lease which causes higher payments new lease/contract.

v  Payment Takeover – Find someone to take over your lease and payments.  This option can potentially backfire if the new party defaults on their obligation, the leasing company can hold you responsible.

v  Buy From Leasing Co. – Every lease has a ‘buyout’/’payout’ option.  The positive of this option is that it can be done at any point during the lease.  The drawback is; in many cases, current market trends are a factor, and you may pay more than the car’s value.

v  Sell Car – Use your payoff amount as price to sell car to a private owner.  This is an overall good option.  By selling the car, you avoid penalties/fees, and it’s a less expensive option, however, the higher your payoff is, the harder it is to find a buyer.

 

As with any contract-binding agreement that requires a financial obligation, it’s always a good practice to do a little research prior to beginning into an agreement – this is no different for ending your auto lease early.  It’s in your best interest to know what you’re getting into and to know what to expect throughout the process beforehand, so don’t be afraid to ask questions—not doing so could leave you with the short end of things.
