My Neighbor Is Offering Me A Really Nice OLD Car, Should I Buy It?

It’s immaculately maintained, you’ve seen it for years, interior is show room condition and you know he just had the brakes done. A wonderful 20 year old Lincoln. It could be yours for about two grand. Should you buy it?

If you look at it on the surface it seems like a good deal. But, honestly, it is a twenty-year old car and even if hundreds of parts have been replaced, thousands more have not! Whenever you buy a car that old, you are almost certainly going to hit a major repair at least once a year. Given how low monthly car payments and lease payments are nowadays, being hit with a $1,500 repair bill could be almost a year’s worth of payments.

If your heart is set on an older car, bring it in and let us have a look at it, we will assess its condition and let you know what it may need. If you live in Essex, Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne and anywhere in the State of Vermont be sure to contact Handy’s Service Center for all your auto repair needs!
