Let’s say you’re in the market for a new car and you’re ready to sell your old one. Unless your old auto is ready is for the landfill, however, you’re faced with two logical options: selling it yourself or trading it in at trusted dealers of used cars in New Orleans and elsewhere. If you’re looking for an answer, it’s pretty simple: you’ll never know until you try.
Of the two, trade-ins are more sought after. For one, it’s much simpler; instead of posting an advertisement and dealing with prospective buyers (not to mention trying to profile them and their pockets), trading in often leads to a simple pricing agreement with a dealer like Baldwin Subaru. That’s it.
Traction is of paramount importance when driving on wet and icy roads. The ability of the car to keep its treads on the asphalt can mean the difference between an uneventful drive and a highway mishap. In fact, in the latest U.S. Avoider Study that surveyed around 29,000 vehicle owners, performance topped the list of requirements for the luxury market.
So Xcar Films put together a simple trial for the three types of wheel drives: the all-wheel drive (represented by the Subaru Impreza), front-wheel drive (represented by the Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy), and rear-wheel drive (represented by the BMW 120d).

It is unknown exactly which Subaru will get either or both milestone components; however, the auto manufacturer owes its success to what many consider as one of the brand’s underdogs: the Leone.
Tax Day is just around the corner. Prepare to file and pay your taxes on time for big savings.
Saving up for a rewarding investment like a house or car takes a lot of dedication and discipline. In these trying times, Americans will do just about anything to cut costs or double their income for extra financial security. Even as the country moves farther from its recessional shadow, the possibility of history repeating itself is always there.
License plates of used cars aren’t carried over to the new owner with the car itself.
The competition among car brands have always been tough, not only in sales but also in awards. Car evaluation bodies, like Kelley Blue Book, present awards to help guide buyers on their choices. One of the awards is for “cost to own”, which measures how much ownership of a certain car will cost you for maintenance, depreciation, etc., after its purchase. Continue reading “Subaru KBB Awards”
