Considered First When Buying Used Cars for Sale by Owners

April 7, 2009

If you are in the market for a car, used cars for sale by owner is a good option for finding the car that you are seeking. Used cars last longer these days and hold their value longer than ever before. With the warranties that are available today, you can get a car that is a few years old that still has a long time left on the warranty. Some people don’t like buying cars for sale by owner because they think the cars have not only been used, but also abused. Of course, the condition of the vehicle will be of concern. In order to assess a used car search, first learn how long it’s been around. Make sure a car’s price reflects its age. For proof of how many times a car has been around the block, investigate its papers.

Tips Considered First When Buying Used Cars for Sale by Owners?

When buying used cars being sold by an owner, it is very important to remember that you are buying the car exactly as you see it, meaning whatever problems the car has, upon buying it, become your problems. Rarely does one sell his/her car unless there is something wrong with it and they are buying a new one. Will you be even getting an honest answer when you ask the owner if the car needs extensive repairs or if the car has been giving the owner frequent problems entailing a huge amount of money in repairing and maintaining the vehicle. Still, there may still be a chance of acquiring a car which has been well maintained from owners who are simply looking for a newer vehicle.

Owners who sell their used cars prices based on car dealerships’ prices on comparable vehicles although sometimes, they may even ask for a higher price compared to counterparts being sold in car dealerships. Owners may demand for a higher price since they assure the customer that they really took proper care of the vehicle. However, you have to remember that very little chance of getting another car from the private owner exists, thus, they really do not put much emphasis on customer satisfaction the same way car dealerships do.

Owners who sell their cars eventually realize that selling their car ‘as is’ may be harder than they have first perceived it to be. Hence, they end up adding more features or making the car even more appealing to choosy buyers. Improving the car would further result to added costs passed on to consumers.

Considering all these factors, it might be even more expensive to buy used cars from owners rather than getting them from respectable car dealers. The cost alone of refurbishing the vehicle may prove costly for the buyer. Finally, make sure that both you and the owner are satisfied with the price and that your agreement is well communicated. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarifications; it is important to know exactly what you’re getting into.


Its Muscle Car Glory Faded, Pontiac Shrivels Up

April 2, 2009

pontiac-muscle-cars

Pontiac models, clockwise from top left: a 1968 GTO, a 1970 Firebird Trans Am, a 2005 GTO and a 2001 Aztek GT. The earlier models had far more fans.

With its history of building muscle cars like the GTO and the low-slung Firebird, Pontiac had good reason to take pride in its best-known marketing slogan from the 1980s, “We Build Excitement.”

Lately it has been using “Pontiac is CAR,” a phrase more likely to catch the attention of grammarians than car buffs.

And on Tuesday, when General Motors asked the federal government for more bailout money, it also announced a reorganization plan that included demoting Pontiac to a “focused niche brand,” signaling that its lineup of vehicles would shrink and that it would no longer be a separate division.

To industry analysts and Pontiac’s longtime fans, the downgrade provides a case study of the product missteps that helped put G.M. in its precarious state, and a reminder of the dangers in straying from a successful formula.

“When you deviate too far from it, that’s when you run into trouble as a brand and a company,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director at Kelley Blue Book, whose 1968 Firebird made him feel “as cool as I could be.”

More than any other G.M. brand, Pontiac stood for performance, speed and sex appeal. Its crosstown rivals followed with similar muscle cars, giving Detroit bragging rights over the cars that Japanese automakers were selling based on quality and reliability.

Though still G.M.’s third-best-selling division, behind Chevrolet and GMC, Pontiac’s sales peaked in 1984, when it sold almost 850,000 vehicles, roughly four times as many as it sold last year.

G.M.’s chief executive, Rick Wagoner, said the company’s decision to concentrate primarily on Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC left the company with a “comprehensive portfolio.”

By many accounts, Pontiac started to falter when G.M. pursued a cost-saving strategy of providing the same cars to different divisions.

It gave Pontiac vehicles like the TransSport minivan, and the Sunbird, Sunfire and Phoenix cars that were barely distinguishable from models sold by Chevrolet and Oldsmobile.

Pontiac also garnered unwanted publicity in 2001 with the Aztek, whose tag line declared, “Quite possibly the most versatile vehicle on the planet.” Its bulky looks landed it on lists of the world’s ugliest cars. Indeed, Aztek won top honors in that category from The Daily Telegraph of London last year.

Pontiac’s current plight is reflected in its Vibe, a well-regarded crossover vehicle that shares underpinnings with the Toyota Matrix, as part of a joint venture between Toyota and G.M.

While the Matrix holds 67 percent of its resale value after three years, according to Kelley Blue Book, the Vibe retains just 54 percent.

The Vibe, whose future is not clear but which was redesigned for 2009, is meant to appeal to the same age group that Pontiac’s muscle cars once did.

But many younger Americans, who were not around for Pontiac’s prime period, will not miss the brand as it shrinks, said Ron Pinelli, who is president of Motorintelligence.com, a company that tracks industry statistics.

To them, he said, “it doesn’t have any cachet unless they’re watching a late-night movie with Burt Reynolds,” whose film “Smokey and the Bandit” featured the Pontiac Trans Am.

But in its best years, Pontiacs were “highly styled and valued and really something,” Mr. Pinelli said.

Known before World War II primarily for its sedate sedans, Pontiac got a lift in the 1950s when G.M. used its cars on the racing circuit. Because of its “wide track” stance, Pontiacs quickly caught on with street racers, as well.

Tim Sampson, whose family owned a yellow Pontiac Grand Prix in the 1960s, remembered the Pontiacs that were used for drag races on President’s Island, in an industrial part of Memphis. “People used to get arrested,” said Mr. Sampson, a founder of the Stax Museum of American Soul.

Italian sports cars inspired another classic Pontiac in the 1960s, when the division’s new general manager, John Z. DeLorean, decided it needed a small, fast car modeled after a Ferrari. He hit on the name GTO — after a Ferrari coupe called the Gran Turismo Omologato.

The GTO returned this decade, as part of an effort to revive Pontiac. But G.M.’s Holden division in Australia built that car.

Its appearance barely echoed the original GTO, disappointing its core audience. It lasted only from 2004 to 2006, before G.M. stopped selling them.

The most recent efforts to breathe new life into Pontiac were put into motion by G.M.’s vice chairman, Robert A. Lutz, who will retire at the end of 2009. Known in the industry for his love of high-performance vehicles, Mr. Lutz had pushed the division to return to its car heritage.

On its Web site, Pontiac explains its new slogan more fully: “Pontiac is style. Pontiac is performance. Pontiac is culture. Pontiac is music. Pontiac is CAR.”

Now, G.M. will have to determine which Pontiacs will remain Pontiacs. So far, Mr. Wagoner and other executives have not given any indication of the company’s specific plans for Pontiac.

But unlike Saturn, which will be discontinued by 2012, G.M. does not have to dismantle a dealership lineup for Pontiac. Its franchises, for the most part, already have been grouped with Buick and GMC. Any future models, G.M. said this week, will be sold through this Buick-Pontiac-GMC organization.

“We’re the third generation, and we’re the last,” said Rick Zimmerman, whose family has sold Pontiacs in Pittsfield, Ill., since the brand came to life as part of its Oakland division in the 1920s. (Pontiac became a stand-alone division in 1932.)

Mr. Zimmerman, whose first car was a GTO, said hundreds of customers used to flood his showroom each fall when new Pontiacs — like the popular Bonneville, now a retired nameplate — were unveiled.

Now, despite positive reviews about the performance of some new models like the G8, he has trouble getting his customers interested in them.

“It’s been a good name, and had a lot of good cars,” Mr. Zimmerman said. “It’s tough to see it go.”


The Art & Spirit of the Exotic Sports Car

March 28, 2009

Anyone who has seen the Lamborghini Cars Reventon or the Aston Martin DBS knows that unmistakable feeling. It’s the thrill & the allure of the exotic sports car, overhauled & updated for the 21st century. Since their inception, sports cars have continually pushed the boundaries of both engineering & art. These are the cars that exemplify speed, power and beauty.

Alfa Romeo is the Grandfather of Exotic Sports Cars. Alfa Romeo is first began producing race cars in Milan, Italy in 1910. Their first endeavor, the HP 24, turned some heads with its superior speed and handling. Chief Designer Giuseppe Merosi worked on all Alfa Romeo models from 1910 to 1923. When Merosi retired, race car driver Enzo Ferrari persuaded Vittorio Jano to leave Fiat and take over Merosi’s work.

In 1925, Alfa Romeo unveiled the P2 Grand Prix Car, Jano’s first car with Romeo and widely considered the first “supercar.” The P2 was powered by a straight-8 cylinder supercharged engine, and placed first in 14 Grand Pix races between 1924 and 1930. Today, the P2 Grand Prix is considered one of the most rarified of the collectible antique cars, with less than a dozen still intact.

Ferrari car is popular for it’s high Performance Luxury Cars

After racing Alfa Romeos in the 1920’s & 30’s, Enzo Ferrari decided that he wanted to build his own racecars. He prototyped a few models in the 1940’s, but it wasn’t until after World War II that he found success. Notably, Ferrari’s exotic sports cars took first place in the Formula 1. World Championships, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the World Sportscar Championships throughout the 1950’s. In 1954, Alfa-Romeo had experimented with its first front-wheel drive compact car named “33”

Ferrari’s Gran Turismo series remains its most successful lines, with the 2007 599 GTB Fiorano bringing even more luxury and innovation to the table. Patrons of the Ferrari Club of America cite performance as the primary reason for purchasing a Ferrari over other collectible cars.

Lamborghini : Exotic Sports Cars for a New Generation. Ferruccio Lamborghini had a successful business building tractors in Italy before his eyes turned to the exotic sports car. And it wasn’t a love for performance that stirred his fire, but a disdain for Enzo Ferrari.

According to Lamborghini’s family, Ferruccio purchased a Ferrari 250 GT in the early 1960’s and was unhappy with the handling & response of the clutch. He brought it into Ferrari’s factory and met with Enzo Ferrari to voice his concerns. Ferrari was immediately upset with Lamborghini’s complaints so he mocked Lamborghini and sent him away. Lamborghini went home, dismantled the car and discovered that the clutches installed in Ferraris were from the same manufacturers he used for his tractors. He installed a new clutch and vowed to create a higher-quality, luxury sports car than Ferrari.

How To Sell An RV Online

March 13, 2009

RV’s, such as motor homes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, folding or pop up campers and truck campers market very well using today’s internet. Recreational vehicle sales have grown over the last few years since many people prefer to travel within the US, rather than risk going to another country. Since the demand is fairly high, the resale value is also holding up better than many things today. Why does the Internet work so well when it comes to selling a recreational vehicle? That is a simple answer, traffic, a single RV can be viewed by thousands of people every day, in many cases, tens or hundreds of thousands. If enough people see it, someone is going to want it, and most likely buy it. There are a few simple guidelines to follow to help you get the exposure that the internet can provide. You can even go to an RV show where you will have a chance to look at a wide range of models and interact with different dealers. Visit a campground, recreational vehicle car parks, and talk to some of the recreational vehicle owners and find out about their experiences with their RV. Consider subscribing to magazines that relate to RV or buy guides that showcase the different types of RVs and Motorhomes. Lastly, you can also rent an RV to get a taste of what it is to experience living and driving in one.

Make sure the RV is clean, and everything is in good working order, think for a minute like you are interested in buying it. You expect it to look good, and as close to new is possible, so make sure your RV fits that picture. Take lots of digital picture of the outside and the inside, since the interested buyer might be hundreds or thousands of miles away, your pictures will be the key to catching their interests. If they are interested enough from your pictures, they will probably make the trip to see it in person. I suggest at least 15 or 20 good quality color pictures from many angles, especially of the inside. Make a complete list of every feature that you can find on your RV, it will make it easier when you start to build the ad online. You can never list to much was far as description, details and features, this is a portion of what will get the attention of the prospective buyer.

Shop around online for an RV like or similar to yours, this will let you see what value the others are asking. Price is not the only factor to selling your RV, however it does help if it is priced competitively with others like it. Many of the classified RV websites can help you with financing for the new buyer, that will really help. Make sure you have more than one way to contact you, list a home phone and cell phone, and e mail address. Some web sites hide your e mail address, that is fine, however I suggest listing it in the description, so any prospective buyer can contact you however they feel the most comfortable. If there are better times to call, list that in the description also. You want to make it as easy as possible to get in contact with you, it only takes one missed buyer to have been the one that might have bought your RV.

The more the value of your Rv is worth, the more valuable it is to advertise it on the internet. I would suggest listing it with more than one online classified web site, since you will get more exposure. Look around at the big RV dealers, they are on almost every classified web site, they have found that it is worth the extra cost to advertise. Look around, there are several that don’t cost an arm and a leg, so you will be able to afford to advertise on more than one. I would also suggest that you consider having your RV featured on the web sites, as long as it does not increase the cost so much that you have to cut out a web site.

Introduction Of Mud Trucks

March 3, 2009

Mud trucks are used for mud racing, also called as mud bogging. Different types of trucks are available in the market, but some trucks are exclusively designed for special purposes. Mud trucks are hefty trucks having bigger wheels than those of regular trucks. These wheels may have extra ridges for a firm grip on muddy surfaces. There are other types of trucks such as monster trucks, 4×4 pickup trucks, and lifted trucks, but mud trucks stand apart from others because of their special characteristics. Maneuvering a mud truck is not easy and requires special training for mud truck racing.

Humans have been fascinated by almost all types of races, games, and other recreational sports, for years. In olden times, rich and mighty monarchs used to encourage activities such as horse racing, camel racing, bull fighting, and many other leisure pursuits. Then came the era of industrial revolution in Europe and on the North American continent. Traditional vehicles of transport became obsolete and modern fast cars, trucks, and other vehicles took their place. Public and goods transportation dramatically improved, human life gradually became easy, and humans could save their time and money. All these things can be attributed to the development and popularity of racing, in one or the other way.

Dodge trucks

Internet is a suitable option for enthusiasts to search for mud trucks. Various websites display high quality pictures, videos, and statistics related to truck racing. A patron can shop online, search by truck categories, get expert advice, understand technical aspects, and compare prices. Some examples of names of racing trucks are Executioner, Samson, Carolina Crusher, Predator, Snake Bite, and Bigfoot.

Mud trucks and other racing trucks generally have very attractive looks. They are usually painted in bright colors with different color combinations, and have interesting features, with state-of-the-art technology. A mud truck can be driven by one or two drivers. The driver’s safety is a basic concern for mud truck manufacturers, because in mud truck racing, a truck may lose its grip on the ground and be toppled.
