New Car Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur

Did you know that the end of the year is a great time to get a great price on a new car at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur? It’s true! This time of year is when dealers are clearing out the current year’s models to make room for the next year’s models. One expecially great place to look is at the new car inventory specials that All Star is offering. This vast selection of vehicles has so many different models to offer that you are sure to find the right car, truck, or SUV to suit your wants and needs. What you will notice about all of the new car inventory specials is that they are all incredibly safe. Since the winter season is nearly upon us, we want to share with you a myth about icy, snowy roads.

Myth: Everyone should buy winter tires – that would prevent most icy road accidents.

Truth: While winter tires certainly do improve traction and handling to some degree during icy conditions, they do not allow a vehicle to safely travel at normal highway speeds when roads are icy. Most fatal accidents happen at high speeds, a condition that is beyond the limits of winter tires to completely prevent a loss of control.

“The regions with some of the highest icy road injury and death incidence are places that see only a handful of winter precipitation events each season – in some cases, only 2 or 3 days per year (such as the southern states in the US). Furthermore, on dry pavement, winter tires wear quickly and have worse handling characteristics. So, in locations where icy roads are seen only a few days a year, it isn’t practical or economical for all drivers in these regions to buy winter tires.”-icyroadsafety.com

We’re Thinking Used Cars

Used Cars at All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur

We have used cars on the brain today! Maybe it is because we are looking at the car our spouse is driving and thinking that it is time to get something different, but that we do not really have the budget to buy a new car. Luckily for us, All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur has a huge selection of used cars and inventory specials that are just ripe for the picking! Today we want to take a look at some of the benefits of buying a used car.

Less Depreciation: New cars typically depreciate about 20 percent when they are driven off the lot. Most cars will lose another 10 percent in value during the first year. That’s a 30-percent loss in value during the initial year of ownership. A $30,000 car loses roughly $9,000 in value during that period. You can avoid that hit by buying a one-year-old used car. He cautions that one-year-old used cars are hard to come by, but it’s becoming easier to find two- and three-year-old used cars. Additionally, with the “right” used car, it’s possible for an owner to buy it, drive it and sell it with little loss in equity.

Less Insurance Costs: A key factor in determining the cost of car insurance is the value of the car. Because a used car has less value than a newer version, the cost of insurance should be less. Experts say that even more money can be saved because some elements of car insurance can be dropped. “Collision and theft: Once a car is old enough, you can do away with those if you choose,” Reed from Edmunds says.

Buy a New Car!

New Car Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near Ladue

Is that old car of yours looking a little worse for the wear? Is it just too small for your growing family? Are you just tired of the vehicle that you have? If so, then you need to head to All Star Dodge near Ladue and check out their selection of new car inventory specials. Today we want to share with you some of the best reasons to buy a new car!

They are reliable: According to J.D. Power, more than half of car buyers claim that after exterior and interior styling, reliability is the most important factor when choosing a vehicle. Because new cars are typically more reliable than used cars, consumers are likely better served by choosing a new one instead of a used one. Qualified language is necessary here because reliability means different things to different people. Especially in recent years, consumer dissatisfaction with user experience and design has colored perceptions of quality and reliability.

They come with a warranty: New cars come with a warranty, and some are quite generous. This means that if something does break or fails to work as designed or intended, you can get it replaced at no cost.

“They have the latest safety features: During the past half-decade, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has set the safety agenda and requirements for the automotive industry, pushing beyond the minimum standards required by the federal government. After giving car companies advance notice that it was doing so, the IIHS developed the small overlap frontal impact crash test, which measures how well a vehicle’s underlying structure deflects collision force when an impact occurs at the front corner of a vehicle.”-nydailynews.com

Should You Check the Accident Report?

Used Car Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton

When you go to buy a used car at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton and you are looking through the inventory specials, you might have some questions about some of your favorite models on the lot. One question that we hear on a regular basis is whether or not you should look at the accident history report. This is up to you, of course! However, if you decide you might want to look at it, we wanted to let you know what you would be seeing, where these reports come from, and what they mean.

How do you get it? Using the vehicle identification number (VIN), you can get a detailed report of the car’s history from Carfax or AutoCheck. It’s a quick way to know if you should seriously consider buying this car.

What am I going to find out? Here is some of the important information you’ll learn:

    • Does this car have a clean title? If a car’s been in a serious accident, fire or flood, and was “totaled” by the insurance company (declared a total loss) it still might be driveable. However, the insurance company will issue a “salvage title” to alert future buyers. Steer clear of cars with a salvage title because it kills the resale value, and the car might still have hidden problems.
    • Serious accidents are reported to the insurance company and will probably be on the vehicle history report.
    • It’s nice to think the car you’re interested in was driven to church by a little old lady for its entire life. If you order the report, you’ll know for sure each time it changed hands.
    • Some reports show if required maintenance was done on time and where the work was performed.

We hope that you found this information to be helpful, now head to All Star and check out their selection of used car inventory specials!

Know What You’re Doing!

New Cars at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur

So many people realize that they need a new car, but have no idea about how to go about getting one. They know they need to go to the dealership, but past that, not much else. Today we want to share some tips for how to go about taking advantage of one of the new car inventory specials at All Star Dodge near Creve Coeur.

Have a budget: While you may have your heart set on a specific car, you won’t be able to take it home unless you can afford it. A good rule of thumb is to spend no more than 25 percent of your monthly household income for all the cars in your household. And this figure should include not only monthly car loan payments but all other vehicle costs, including fuel and car insurance.

Decide between new or used: Thanks to a large number of lease returns, a wide array of used cars that are about three years old is currently on the market, making buying a used or certified pre-owned (CPO) car more attractive than in recent years. In addition, there are more inexpensive new cars available than ever before, making your choices positively dizzying, regardless of your budget. All Star also offers a vast selection of inventory specials on many new vehicles. You are sure to find the right car, truck, or SUV from their selection of inventory specials.

Head to All Star today and take advantage of the inventory specials that this wonderful dealership has to offer. Their friendly and knowledgable staff would love to assist you in finding the right vehicle and helping you to get whatever financing you will need. All Star really is a one stop dealership!

Used Car Inventory Specials Galore!

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton

One thing that we absolutely love about All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton is not just their incredible selection of new cars, trucks, and SUVs, but their massive selection of used cars as well! All Star has such a vast selection of used cars that they even offer inventory specials each month on a wide variety of different cars, trucks, and SUVs! Not many dealerships go this above and beyond to offer these kinds of savings, but that’s just part of the All Star dealership! We want to share with you a tip on how to go about finding the right used car at All Star!

First and foremost, it is important to know what you can afford. “A rule of thumb: If you’re taking out a loan to pay for your car, your car payment shouldn’t be more than 20 percent of your take-home pay. If you’re sticking to a tight budget, you may want to spend even less. Used cars will need a little extra attention from time to time: new tires, maintenance and the like. And then there are the other ownership costs shoppers sometimes forget to account for, such as fuel and insurance. If the car you’re planning to buy is out of warranty, it might be a good idea to set aside a “just-in-case” fund to cover any unexpected repairs.”-edmunds.com

The inventory specials on the used cars at All Star are a great way to get the most band for your buck. You can get a wonderful used car at a fantastic price. The friendly and knowledgeable staff would be more than happy to help you get behind the wheel of a great used car from their inventory specials today!

What Should I Know?

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near North County

Let’s say that you have decided to buy a new car from All Star Dodge near North County. You have to ask yourself, “what do I need to know before I go to the dealership?” A lot of people ask themselves this question simply because they don’t go car shopping enough to know everything, or because car shopping stresses them out. Today we want to share with you a few things that you should know before you head to All Star to buy your new car.

  1. Check the All Star site for rebates – Many buyers will qualify for multiple rebates, some of which may not even be made public. You might belong to organizations or receive coupons in the mail that entitle you to additional rebates. Be aware of all rebates for which you qualify and make sure you receive them.
  2. Check your credit history – Most people who shop for cars will need a loan. How much that loan costs will depend on your credit history, and knowing your credit history will give you a better idea what to expect from lenders. “The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003 (FACTA) allows every consumer to get a free copy of his or her credit report once a year from each of the three major credit-reporting agencies (TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax). Get a copy of your credit report, and check it for accuracy. Pay the extra few dollars to get your credit score as well, as it is one of the major factors that banks use to determine your creditworthiness.”-caranddriver.com

These are just a couple of things that you will want to know before you head to the All Star dealership. If you have more questions about what you might need, call All Star and talk to a member of the team – they would love to help you!

Inventory Specials – A Great Buy!

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near Oakville

We are in the thick of summer and the thick of shark week. Both are great to experience, but they can be a little intense at times. There are some times during summer in the St. Louis area that you cannot go outside because of the heat, but are getting tired of being cooped up in the house. We have a suggestion on what you can do to keep yourself busy, stay cool, and maybe find the perfect car for you buy.

Being stuck inside all day usually means that we spend more time on the internet – since you are already out there surfing the web, you might as well head over to All Star Dodge near Oakville. Not their location, although you could since they have a lovely showroom that is inside and nice and cool, we mean their website! All Star is one of those incredible dealerships that does everything they can to make shopping for a new car easy and enjoyable. One way in which they make things easy is to keep their online inventory current with what is on the dealership lot. Their dedicated team works tirelessly to ensure that the vehicles that you see online are available for purchase. (Some dealerships put a bunch of cars on their website, get you excited about a vehicle, then it’s not even available when you get there to buy it – we think that is ridiculous!)

The inventory specials section of the All Star website lists all of the current vehicles that are being offered at special rates. These special rates mean incredible bargains for you! We invite you to check out the online inventory that All Star has to offer. You can even chat live with a member of the All Star team!

Dealership or Private Seller?

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville

This is question that is frequently posed by people looking to buy a car. Should I buy from a dealership or from a private seller. We believe that the best way to protect yourself is to get your next vehicle from a dealership, a dealership like All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville.

But what do we mean by protecting oneself? This means that you do everything in your power to ensure that you are getting a good deal and that you are getting a quality vehicle that won’t break down on you in a short period of time. Auto dealerships are held to higher standards than private sellers. Those higher standards are designed to protect the buyer. If you decide to go the private seller route, you have to be ready to do a really thorough inspection yourself, or pay to take it to someone to inspect for you. “The car may look great from the exterior, but what’s happening under the bonnet? Some of the most critical (and expensive to repair) parts are not clearly visible unless you know what to look for. A private seller is not necessarily going to disclose or even be aware of all the potential issues with the car.”-macquarie.com

If you buy from a dealership, you get an added benefit of a warranty – you won’t get one of those from a private seller. When you buy a car through a licensed car dealer, the car will be covered by a statutory warranty which guarantees that certain defects found after purchase will be repaired free of charge within the warranty period. Dealerships may be able to offer additional warranties, which could be comforting if you are buying a used car.

Skip the hassle of a private seller and head to the All Star Dodge Ram dealership and check out their inventory specials today!
