US automobile market is known for its enriched collection of new cars. Small cars, mid sized cars, large cars, sports cars, convertibles, wagons and hybrids. You name it and the list of debutants will never upset you. If you are outside USA and eyeing for a US car, the cost would mount up as along with the price of the car, there are the other expenses of tax, shipping and extra insurance for shipping. Yet there are affordable cars too. Ford Fiesta, Honda Civic, Ford Fusion, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet are to name a few of the most wanted or searched for cars of US.

Though, US used cars too enjoy a good international market, it is always good to buy a new car if you can afford it. The new car is not used by anybody before. It is neither damaged nor stolen. It is exactly what you wanted it to be. Safety and fuel efficiency are higher in a new car than that of a used car. You will get latest technical facilities too in a new car

Auction cars come with both pros and cons. It is, therefore, important to buy them after taking into consideration some precautions. You must look for trustworthy insurance auto auctions sites.

Here are some major pros and cons of buying such cars:


Pros:

One of the biggest pro is that you can get the car at a dream price. The prices can be very low. In fact, at times, a salvage car can be sold at a price which even a beggar can afford.
Another advantage of auction cars is that they help you buy better models at lower prices. So, if you cannot afford a 1st hand Mercedes, you can buy one from an auction house. Herein, you will get a very old model, but the price will be within reach.
Most insurance auto auctions sites take full responsibility about the quality of cars. So, in all likelihood, the car you buy will serve you very well.
These cars range impressively. Right from the vintage models to the contemporary ones, you can pick from a vast range.
Since the cars are in reasonably good conditions, you can always resale them too and make good profits.
Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 6:45pm On Jul 20, 2016
Auction cars may be cheap but they arenӴ 1st hand. So, those who are concerned about their social reputation refrain from buying them.
Sometimes, the buyers buy a car thinking that it is top-class. But they may find out later on that it is not in a very good condition.

Issues Can Effect time of Transportation
Auction Vehicles: If the vehicle is purchased from an auction the selling party has up to 30 days to turn in the title/ownership for the vehicle. This can cause significant delays for the shipping process as the vehicle will not be picked up until the title/ownership is present. Please ask an Auction Export representative if the vehicle title/ownership is present prior to purchase to avoid this delay.

Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 6:49pm On Jul 21, 2016
Overground Delivery duration : Certain areas of the U.S.A. have a seasonal or yearly low traffic volume increasing the amount of time elapsed between vehicle purchase and delivery to the warehouse or port. States with low traffic volume include, but are not limited to, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Delays can also occur due to bad weather conditions in the winter months. Please note that other potential delays can occur from truck breakdowns which are rare but unavoidable.

Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 7:00pm On Jul 21, 2016
Port Delays: Please be aware that delays can sometimes occur during the winter months when the ports are closed or there is lack of available containers due to bad weather conditions.
Please note, NJ customs are overburdened due to very high volume, and delays with documentation are not uncommon. When shipping RORO there may be delays due to the large volume the shipping line is experiencing, in this case, the vehicle will be loaded onto the next vessel with available cargo space.

Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 7:00pm On Jul 21, 2016
Snowbird Effect : During the pre-winter months of October and December many retirees move their cars and furniture to Florida to spend the winter in a warmer climate. This limits the amount of empty trucks moving South along the Eastern shore of the U.S.A. To ports in Georgia and Florida causing the potential delays for vehicle delivery to ports and warehouses. This trend is reversed in the pre-summer months.

For a dealer used cars are also beneficial because of the certification programs they own. Luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and Lexus started this idea of pre-owned certificates. Dealers usually look for late-models for used cars with low mileage and no major damage. This certification is provided only after a strict inspection of cosmetic and mechanical parts. The USA cars for sale usually possess this certification with warranty which is as good as a new car and provides full road assistance. Interestingly, the cars with this certification also manage to get special financing by manufacturers which are at a much lower rate as compared to the loans given for new cars.

Finally, the used cars avoid the depreciation menace. A new car loses 30% of its value, the moment it is on road but a used car has no such issues. Hence all those looking for auto import export should try out used cars before barging into new car business.

Why is buying a car becoming a necessity?

Buying a car is becoming a necessity these days. There was a time when it was considered to be a luxury. But now with things getting so competitive, people need to save time and make the most of all opportunities. Not having a personal vehicle can be a big hindrance for quick traveling. This is one reason why people are more eager to invest in new cars. So, car sales in Nigeria has picked up rapidly. Furthermore, there are some good lucrative options these days to save money and own a car at the same time.

Now, there are second hand cars which are easily available. One does not have to spend a big fortune on them. Used cars can be bought at very cheap rates from top-selling countries like USA. USA has a big market in Nigeria where its cars are exported. In fact, the last few years have witnessed a very significant growth in the number of cars exported from US to Nigeria. While it is true that better transport & technology have helped in more trading, the chief reason for such an upswing is the need to get a car at all cost.

So, car sales in Nigeria have seen a tremendous rise.

Engine
Check your belts
[b][/b]

At the front of your engine there will be a series of rubber drive belts that loop around various pulleys, driving everything from the alternator to the a/c compressor. Rubber perishes, more so in extreme conditions like those found in an operating engine bay. Get your timing belt and accessory drive belt checked every 25,000 miles, preferably replacing it every 50,000 miles. See the Fuel and Engine bible for information on interference engines and why checking your timing belts is a necessity, not a luxury

Fuel Economy

Check your tyre pressures regularly - once a week is ideal. Bad tyre pressures can affect fuel economy very noticeably. It's easy to do and there is no excuse not to.
Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 6:32pm On Jul 28, 2016
Checking your oil level

This is something everyone can do - it's quick and easy and it'll tell you if your engine needs oil. If the oil is too high or too low, it can cause trouble for your engine. To check the oil, park on level ground and wait until the engine has cooled down after driving, then locate the dipstick. Pull it out and wipe it clean, then push it all the way back in until the top of it is seated properly in the dip tube again. Wait a moment then pull it out again. Check the level of the oil. If it's between the high and low marks, you're fine. (If it's too low, add a little.) The high and low marks can be denoted by two dots, an "H" and "L" or a shaded area on the dipstick. The photos below show a Honda dipstick which has the two dots. Why not just read the level first time around? The first time you pull the dipstick out, it will have oil all over it and it will be difficult to tell where the level is. That's why you need to wipe it on a rag to get a clean dipstick, then dip it back into the oil to get a good reading
Re: Tips for car owners and those who are looking for a car! by CarXus: 6:32pm On Jul 28, 2016
Checking your coolant level

Again, something everyone can do. The coolant is the other thing your engine cannot go without. Every engine is different but if you check your handbook you should find where the coolant reservoir is. It will normally be bolted to one side of the engine bay or the other, and be a white semi-transparent bottle. Wait until your engine is cool and take a look at it - the outside should have 'low' and 'high' markings on it and the level of coolant inside should be between the two.
