Q: Do you include a CarFax vehicle report?
A: Because we price our vehicles to sell, we cannot absorb the cost of running these reports on every vehicle as it would be quite costly. Since this can be a valuable and informative tool for consumers to use, we have included their link on our site as a useful resource for you. Please keep in mind that this is only a useful link put on the website for your convenience, we are happy to provide an inspection sheet from our third party mechanic, but we do not pay for vehicle reports.
Q: Do you offer financing?
A: At this time we do not offer any in house financing, however, if you are in need of financing we have included links to a few lenders we found are most successful in getting these loans approved. These lenders are all third party, we are not affiliated with any of them. Our customers in the past have had good experiences with them overall, so we chose to link them to the site in an attempt to help those who may need a loan in order to make a purchase.
Q: Are your vehicles inspected?
A: Absolutely! Not only are these cars and trucks inspected by a reputable (and third party) mechanic, but if necessary, repairs are also made prior to the sale of that vehicle. On rare occasions they may discover a major problem with the vehicle, when this is the case we may choose to sell it “as is” and fully disclose what was found so the buyer can make an informed and educated decision on that particular vehicle.
Please use cation when purchasing from a dealer who also has a garage on the premises, many times this is so they can put a band aid on these repairs in an effort to save money. Do not misunderstand what we are saying, this is not an accusation as we are certain that there are some who have good intentions, but in general this should put you on “high alert” to have an inspection done by an unbiased mechanic as soon as possible.
We will always disclose what was found by our mechanic, as well as any receipts for repairs made.
Q: What is your warranty?
A: We offer an “implied warranty” which is required by law, and while that may not sound too impressive, you may be surprised to know how many dealers never mention this warranty, but rather count on the consumer to inform themselves. That said, the law requires a dealer provide a 15 day/500 mile (whichever comes first) warranty on any major components that pose an issue in running safely.
At Accushine, we always suggest our customers stay local with the vehicle during this warranty period, and sometimes this causes quite a reaction from the buyer. We do this only to help you get the most benefit during this warranty period, and also that you do not find yourself stranded far from home should a problem arise.
These are used vehicles, and although we have everyone of them inspected, this is not a guarantee that a problem will not arise. Mechanics are still people capable of making mistakes, and vehicles are still complex machines made up of many different components. By taking this time to drive the automobile locally, you will have peace of mind knowing that if the unexpected does happen, we are in a much better position to help when you call.
We truly want everyone to be safe out there, and happy with their vehicle purchase for years to come.
Q: Will you hold vehicles?
A: With a deposit we will absolutely hold a vehicle for a time period to be determined. Please note the deposit is non-refundable and will be forfeited should you change your mind and not purchase the intended vehicle.
Q: Why can’t I get my deposit back if I change my mind?
A: A deposit is meant to secure an object, meaning we will take this particular vehicle out of circulation and tell others it has been sold. When someone chooses to “hold” a vehicle it is because they are serious about buying it and wishes to guarantee it’s availability. When someone then “changes their mind” it can become quite costly as we immediately remove this vehicle from our current inventory and inform any potential buyers it has been sold. This deposit now helps us to mitigate our financial damages in what both parties agreed was “a final sale.”
Q: Will you take my current vehicle on trade?
A: It depends upon the trade, while we may be able to give a very rough estimate by your own description, it will only be when we can physically view the vehicle for an accurate appraisal.
Q: Are your prices negotiable?
A: No, we have actually gone out of our way to price all of our cars and trucks at a fair market price so there is “no hassle pricing.” It has been our experience that when a dealership is negotiable it is only by marking up their prices first which allows room for these negotiations, for us it seems easier to just price them fair from the very start.
