Should You Buy New, or Fix What You Have?
Whether you drive a Chevrolet, Ford, or Dodge diesel pickup, there will come a day when it’s time to ask the question - has the time come to get a new truck? City Auto Repair in Gainesville, FL is here to help you decide.
First, consider the issues at hand. Are they mostly concentrated to one area, like the engine, transmission, or suspension, that could all be solved by an overhaul of that area? If so, you might consider doing that - it’ll cost a lot less than a new truck, and keep you out of an expensive monthly payment and commitment.
Next, assess the overall condition. Trucks last a long time, and it’s rare that the whole thing is ready to be retired. Is it excessively rusty? Has it been poorly maintained, resulting in a multitude of needed repairs that can’t be feasibly taken care of? Is the mileage too high to justify the work? If the rest of the truck is in reasonably good shape, fixing it is probably your best option. If the whole truck is plagued by problems like rust and mileage related issues, replacing it may be the way to go. If you can’t decide, one of our technicians will be happy to take a look, and help you weigh out your options.
