Fuel Economy Low Down | Are MPG's Worth Your Money?

Fuel Economy Low Down | Are MPG's Worth Your Money?

You’re not trying to send a fleet of tractor-trailers around the globe, you just want to get around Lower Bucks. Wouldn’t it be great to save money while you do it though? What if every trip to Neshaminy Mall could be dollars in your pocket? Just passing by either Street Road Wawa will tell you gas is becoming increasingly costly at the moment.

Buying A Car The Smart Way

Buying A Car The Smart Way

Buying A Car The Smart Way By Tom Smith So, you live in Bucks County and you’re in the market for a new car - or maybe you aren’t. Either way, there’re some simple things to consider when you need to buy a car or if you’re just able to take advantage of the vehicle market. Definitely read this before hitting the Route 1 or Street Road dealers - or any car seller in Bucks. Do You Need To Buy A New Car? If you read our last blog, you know that your car’s market value is important to keep in mind in terms of selling, but - also realize - your car is an asset and if it’s depreciating too fast you could be losing in the long run.

When To Sell Your Car

When To Sell Your Car

When To Sell Your Car? by Tom Smith Almost every car on Earth is losing value. That's just the nature of wear and tear to get from point A to B. Even for us in Southampton, PA, boy, is this true. A car is a necessity of life for all of us in the Lower Bucks-area though, so how can you take advantage of this situation? Know when to sell your car - that’s how! Does My Car Cost Me More Than It Is Worth? Probably the most important thing to consider when selling a car is your financial situation. This may seem obvious. The truth is though, it doesn’t matter if you’re headed to Na Brasa in Horsham for top-of-the-line steaks or just to Wendy’s on County Line in Southampton - if your car costs you more than half your annual income you need to rethink it. At that point you’re not helping yourself in the long term. Remember, with a car loan, you’ll have to pay interest on something that is actually depreciating from use. What Is The Value Of ... read more
