Avoid Getting the Used Car Lemon Blues

by | Nov 16, 2015 | Buying/Selling

Have you ever purchased a used car before?
 Did you feel comfortable while negotiating?
Did you know the right things to look for?
There’s a saying:  “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”, but making lemonade from a used car lemon is something we would all like to avoid.

Like so many things in life, there is nothing like a little preparation to make the job go easier, even a used car purchase. Don’t laugh, but the song comes to mind,  A Spoon Full of Sugar from Mary Poppins…

We’ve developed a “spoon full of sugar” for used car purchases.  It’s an e-book called: Don’t Buy a Used Car Without Reading this E-Book – a.k.a. Avoid the “Lemon Blues”. Just reading this e-book in advance can make the purchase go down so much easier.

Not that long ago we had a father and son come into BA Auto Care with a car they weren’t even able to get to pass the safety inspection without spending thousands more than they expected.  They ended up getting rid of the car at a huge loss.  I can’t even begin to chronicle the many customers who have purchased their dream used sports cars and lived to regret it (or even abandon it).

Don’t be that father/son couple. Don’t be that dreamer.  Download our free used car e-book if you are in the market for a used car.  Take your “sugar” straight…and skip the lemonade!
