Comments Off on What Isn’t Covered in the Manufacturer’s Warranty?
Buying a new vehicle is only one part of the process. You also need to take care of that vehicle for years to come. Your manufacturer’s warranty will help you do that, but reading through them can make you more confused than you were before you started.
Manufacturer warranties cover a lot of stuff, but there’s also a lot they won’t cover, and it’s crucial to understand what typically gets left out of your warranty and why.
What the Manufacturer’s Warranty Doesn’t Cover
Your manufacturer’s warranty could differ from the norm, so it’s always a good idea to read through it and ask your salesperson for help if you don’t understand something. In general, these points aren’t covered by a manufacturer’s warranty:

Comments Off on Top Reasons to Choose a Diesel Car
Diesel cars are not a popular choice in the US. In fact, only 3% of motorists in the US drive one. By comparison, over 50% of drivers in Europe opt for the fantastic fuel economy and environmental benefits of a diesel vehicle.
So, if you are thinking about coming down to see us at Sherry Chrysler and picking yourself out a new car, truck, or SUV, here are some fantastic reasons that you should choose one with a diesel engine!

Comments Off on What Kind of Down Payment Do I Need to Finance a Car?
A car is a big purchase regardless of whether it’s new or used. That’s why several financing options exist to help you afford the car you want and need. No matter the finance option, though, it’s likely you’ll need a down payment before you can drive off in your new ride.
But how much do you have to pay and how much should you pay? Sometimes, paying a little more than required for your car loan is the best way to go.
The Importance of a Down Payment
Although some promotions make it possible to pay $0 down on a new or used vehicle, more often than not, you’ll need at least some money down. And, even when an offer gives you the chance to skip a down payment, you might want to consider paying something anyway. Down payments have several benefits for you, including:

What Is Car Leasing?
