How to Know When It's Time to Replace Your Old Vehicle

Is it time to replace your old vehicle? Spending the money on a new car might not sound appealing right now, but if your car seems to break down almost every time it's used, it is probably time to replace it. Your friends at Orthodox Auto Company can help ease the pain of replacing your car by giving you top dollar for your car, no matter what the condition. But how do you know when it is time to replace that clunker? Here are a few tips to help you decide.

Does It Still Suit Your Needs?

Chances are, your life has changed somewhat since you purchased your vehicle. Maybe you need more space for kids, dogs, or gear. Or, perhaps it is time to downsize. If you need to commute for work or if you enjoy taking road trips, you'll need something more reliable. Before replacing your car, consider what you will use your vehicle for most and how your drive can be more convenient and comfortable.

How Many Miles Does Your Vehicle Have on It?

Experts say that if your car has well over 100,000 miles, it is time to think about replacing. If you take good care of your vehicle, you may be able to make it to 200,000 miles. But, if you are getting more repairs done than what the car is worth, it is time to replace.

Does It Get Good Gas Mileage?

Newer cars get much better gas mileage than most older cars. Even if your car is still running as you near the 200,000-mile mark, it is costing you in gas. You will save money in the long run by upgrading to a newer vehicle and paying less at the pump.
