Signs to Shop There are probably just as many reasons to look for a new vehicle as there are drivers. Some people like to regularly trade their old ride in for a fresh one after only several months, while others like to hold on a little while longer, for both financial and sentimental reasons. Drivers who have been behind the wheel for a while will likely see a pattern to their own purchasing if they look back. As a longtime NYE Automotive customer myself, I can definitely see which category I fall into, as my vehicles are usually falling apart before I decide enough is enough. Call it procrastination … call it being frugal … call it simply denial. When it gets to the point where I can’t drive my vehicle anymore, I head back to NYE. That tradition has been passed to my progeny. My daughter Samantha was still driving the Cavalier she pilfered from me the day she got her driver’s license three years ago until just recently. That’s when she was confronted by her own question of whether to keep and pay repair bills or trade it in. That decision was made easier by the fact that it was leaking both oil and gas, a costly and potentially life-threatening combo, so we went shopping for a new-used vehicle. Now, I’m not sure she really could relate to the memories of my own first auto shopping experiences, where you actually started out with a walk-around visit to the dealer’s lot. Like any teen of today, she started her shopping on the Internet and the NYE website. She entered her contact information, and it wasn’t 30 minutes before Matt gave her a call. We picked out a favorite choice online and stopped by the showroom to meet up with him for a look. Just our luck, that car sold before we got there. That wasn’t really a major setback, however, because it gave us a target to look for in other similar vehicles. Matt produced a few other options, via computer, naturally, and we were off for a test drive. I picked out the one I liked rather quickly, but Sam took a little while longer to make up her mind. She ultimately agreed with me on the best fit in budget, options, and appearance, although not necessarily in that order. We cut a deal we were all happy with, and she was soon driving around in that new car. She’s happy with the new ride, and her dad is even happier knowing she is in a much safer vehicle than before.
