Should I repair or sell my vehicle?

Many times, an unexpected breakdown or necessary repair for your vehicle can leave you with a case of sticker shock. We've all been there, wondering if it's even worth the cost of repair. So what should you do? If you're trying to decide between repairing or selling your vehicle, it can help to know your options. You can follow Redwood City INFINITI's guide to weigh the pros and cons of selling vs. repairing to help you make your final decision.

[SHOP NOW: Find Your Next Vehicle Today!]

Repair

Some of the most important things to take into consideration are the age and condition of your vehicle. If this is your vehicle's first repair, it's probably worth the investment, even if it's a pricey one. When you're faced with costly repairs, it can be helpful to make a budget to see where the repair fits in for you. Auto repair financing can be an option if the upfront cost is too much, and can go a long way to help you get your vehicle back sooner. If your vehicle is still on the low end for milage, you could have years left on it, making repairing a wise choice. Your vehicle could have a lot of life left in it, and paying for a repair could help it last even longer. Since some modern vehicles can go well past 200,000 and even up to 300,000 miles, the mileage is one more thing to consider.

Sell

How old is your vehicle? Has it already had several big repairs? If you're already stressed at the thought of the the next repair, then selling your vehicle might be your best bet. When you're in the market for a new vehicle, the easiest option is to sell directly to a dealership. They'll take care of all the repairs so you don't have to, and you can even find your vehicle's value before you decide to sell. At Redwood City INFINITI, our Buy-Back Program is designed to make selling easier, so you can get that vehicle off your hands and into a new one with more longevity. Then, you can apply the value of your old car to a new purchase or lease.

Repair or Sell at Redwood City INFINITI

Whatever your decision, the team at Redwood City INFINITI is here to help! Our service center's factory-trained technicians know the ins and outs of every INFINITI, and our sales team is ready to help you find the new or pre-owned vehicle you're searching for. Contact us today to learn more!

How to Choose a New or Used Vehicle

Choosing your next vehicle is an exciting but daunting experience. Whether you're looking for a car that's brand new or just new to you, there's a lot to think about before signing the papers to make a car, truck, or van yours. That's why we've created this handy guide with some quick tips to help you know what to look for when deciding how to choose a new or used vehicle.

[SHOP NOW: New and Used Vehicles in Redwood City, CA]

Finding the Right Car for You

If you've never bought a new vehicle, it's tough to know where to start. How are you supposed to know what you want? Which features are better than others? Instead of getting overwhelmed, you can ask yourself the following questions to narrow down your search. Then, follow the steps to pinpointing your next vehicle.

What are your needs?

This question can cover a broad range, but with so many options out there, it can really help you pinpoint the type of vehicle you're searching for. If you have a short daily commute, you might consider a hybrid or electric vehicle to save on fuel and get you where you need to go with low or zero emissions. Maybe you take frequent road trips; in that case, a roomy cargo area and convenience features are key. Write down details such as how many passengers you'll be hauling, which features are a must-have, and whether you're planning to use the vehicle for towing.

What's your budget?

Budget alone will help you answer several questions, such as new vs. used or lease vs. purchase. Determine how much you have for a down payment and the cost of your monthly payments, than narrow your search based on those factors. There's no use in finding your dream car that's way out of your budget, but with the right financing or budgeting, you can certainly come close. Remember, too, that trading in a current vehicle should factor into your budget and can greatly reduce the cost.

Should you lease or buy?

The answer to this question depends on your budget and preferences. Leasing is a great option if you like the latest technology and plan to switch out for a new vehicle again soon, while purchasing offers the benefit of ownership and fewer restrictions. If you aren't sure, you can take a look at our available financing and lease options for more detailed information.

Test Drive

Once you have an idea of what you're looking for, it's time for the most fun part: the test drive! Test driving can help you rule out an option you thought you wanted and will help you feel more confident in making your final decision. A helpful sales associate can make the difference and will be able to show off all the features and details that you might be seeking in your next vehicle.

Find Your Next Vehicle at Redwood City INFINITI

When you're ready to start your search, come visit us at Redwood City INFINITI! Along with all the newest INFINITI vehicles, you can also find a great selection of pre-owned vehicles that are sure to meet your needs. Contact us today to schedule a test drive and get started on your search.

What's your personal view of the vehicle's condition? These are a few of the questions we'll go over at the time of trade.

When you work with a reputable business, such as Redwood City INFINITI, you don’t have to worry about doing business online. Even if you are buying a new or used car from your phone, our forms are secure, and our staff is friendly and accommodating.

That said, there are other businesses that buy and sell cars entirely online. We won’t name any names, but they are large, and that’s their first problem. To them, you are just a number, to us you are a valued local customer. What’s more, they don’t have a nearby storefront that you can go to if you have questions or concerns. All they have are helplines and customer service representatives. Who would you rather do business with?

Redwood City INFINITI is right here, we are not going anywhere, and if you need to come to us from San Jose, across the water in Alameda County, or any of the surrounding areas, you know where to find us.
