Get Trade-In Value near Weymouth MA

Provide Service Documentation

The more documentation you can offer, the better. “Any and all fluid changes, tire rotations, paint or body repairs, engine repairs and service and any other related maintenance documentation is important to have because it demonstrates to a dealer the care the vehicle has received during the time you owned it,” says AutoTrader. All this information should be present on the Carfax report, but it can also be obtained from the shop you used.


Improve Your Car’s Curb Appeal

The better condition your car is in, the more it will be worth. "A professional detailing job is always worth the money," says Richard Homan, senior vehicle evaluation editor at KBB.com. "If you don't want to spend the money for a professional job, be sure that you at least wash and wax your car and change the oil."


Check Your Tires

Tires that are worn, have curb rash, or are out of alignment may lower your car’s trade-in value. Properly maintain your tires with regular tire rotations and alignment checks. If your tires are beyond repair, feel free to pick up some cheap tires before trading in your vehicle.


Don't Forget About the Body Work

Obvious dents, dings, and scratches can really damage your car’s trade-in value. We recommend that you have those scratches and dings professionally removed. "Dent removal experts can be very affordable -- often charging only $100 to remove several dings. You will be saving the buyer the headache of taking it to the body shop," said Dan Ingle of Kelley Blue Book. “For a major dent where a panel needs to be repaired, it makes even better financial sense to fix it."


Bring the Maintenance up to Speed

You don’t need to give your vehicle a complete makeover, but the better condition of your vehicle the more money you’ll make. AutoTrader notes that when it comes to making repairs to your used car, you need to determine whether or not the repairs will actually increase the value of the vehicle at resale time. Most importantly, you need to determine if you'll be able to increase the selling price of the car enough to recoup the cost of those repairs.


Use a Range Trade-In Value Estimator

We recommend using a range-based trade-in estimator, like our Trade Appraisal Tool, to give you the best approximation of your car’s value. This estimator takes into account several factors, including condition, location, and desirability of your car.

Back-To-School Safety & Car Maintenance Tips

Car Maintenance Tips near Weymouth MA

You’re preparing to go back to school, so make sure your car is ready for the ride too!

Car Maintenance Tips near Weymouth MA

You’ve been stocking up on microwave mac and cheese, notebooks and pencils, and a new shower caddy for the awkward walk from your dorm to the bathroom. But don't forget right now is the most important time to have maintenance performed on your car to ensure a safe and relatively easy transition into the back-to-school season.

Here are some essential car maintenance notes to review before the real exams kick in this fall.


Battery
  • Testing your car's battery and understanding how to use jumper cables is one of the most important car safety tips. Though they work most of the time, the cables do need to be inspected and possibly replaced. You’ll want to ensure the battery is corrosion free because even a small amount can result in a car that won’t start. Additionally, have your battery tested for its cold cranking amps to make certain there is enough power to get your car moving!


Tires
  • It’s also highly important to get your tires checked! The best and easiest way to check your tire tread is with the Penny Test! Insert a penny into the tire tread grooves with Lincoln's head facing down. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your tires are at 2/32nds of an inch or less of remaining tread, which means you need new tires immediately!

  • More essentials include checking to see if your car needs a tire alignment and regularly rotating your tires as recommended.

  • Tire pressure is also vital to safety. Check your car’s manual to confirm what your car’s tire pressure should regularly be. Make sure you check them when they’re cold, not after you recently drove the car as this will obscure results.


Schedule Service near Weymouth MA

Gas
  • Fill up your gas tank before it gets too low! Few drivers know that when fuel levels drop below half a tank, the remaining gas is more easily evaporated. Running on a near empty gas tank causes another issue: the fuel pump will suck up residue that collects in the bottom of the gas tank which will cause fuel pump and fuel system failure. Save money and improve vehicle fuel economy by ensuring the gas never falls below half a tank.


Oil Changes
  • Check to see if you need an oil change before the rush of getting back into the grind of school. You should also see if you need to replace dirty filters - air, fuel, etc. While you’re in the flow of providing maintenance your car, address your windshield wipers to see if they need to be them replaced, which is vital in maintaining safety during the rainy or snowy months.


Vehicle Service Center
  • Last but certainly not least, it's crucial for college students moving away for the first time to know where the nearest vehicle service center. This way you preempt any future problems you may face by having a trusted resource to help you get safely back on the road and stay up to date on your vehicle's maintenance.


The end of summer can be hectic, so let us take some stress off your hands! We’d love to help you out with any and all of the above car maintenance tips.

Turbocharged, highly-efficient 2018 Honda Accord launching this fall

Redesigned, reengineered 2018 Honda Accord coming soon to Weymouth MA

Introducing the all-new 2018 Honda Accord, the 10th generation of the number one cumulatively choice of individual American car buyers since 2010.^

A new-from-the-ground-up design featuring a more aggressive and athletic stance help make for the most fun-to-drive, premium and dramatically styled Accord ever.

New Honda Accord For Sale near Brockton MA

Three powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains are the highlighted features of the 2018 Accord, including two new direct-injected and turbocharged engines that pair with either a new Honda-developed 10-speed automatic transmission, continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or a 6-speed manual transmission, in addition to the next-generation of Honda's innovative two-motor hybrid technology.


"With these three advanced new powertrains, the tenth-generation Accord will be the most fun-to-drive, refined and fuel-efficient Accord yet," said Jeff Conrad, senior V.P. and G.M. of America Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Just as the new Honda Civic injected new energy into the compact car segment, we expect this all-new 2018 Accord will make people rethink the midsize sedan."


Digging deeper into these new powertrains, there’s a 1.5-liter direct-injected DOHC Turbo with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC) coupled with a Honda CVT, while there’s also a 2.0-liter direct-injected DOHC Turbo with i-VTEC valvetrain mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission -- the industry's first 10AT for a front-wheel-drive passenger car. Both engines can also be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission instead.

As for the third powertrain, an all-new, refined version of the Accord Hybrid will be powered by the next-generation of Honda's innovative two-motor hybrid technology, allowing one motor to accelerate from a dead stop and a second to start the engine and charge the first motor.
