EverDrive's Woodfin offers summer drivers these tips:
Summer heat is tough on parts such as engines, transmissions and air conditioner compressors, so if yours succumbs to the high temperatures or is already showing signs of trouble before you start your vacation, consider a used part rather than new. Used car parts are matched to the specific make and model of your vehicle and are Original Equipment Manufacturer parts, but they can cost up to 50 percent less than a new part. In addition, used parts often come with hardware and accessories not available on the new part, further reducing the cost of installation. If summer vacation involves a long road trip, tend to the safety features on your vehicle such as the rear- and side-view mirrors, headlamps and taillights. All of these parts are available used and can be matched to the exact make and model of your vehicle. When selecting used parts, focus on quality. EverDrive's used parts, including major parts such as used engines, come with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty, whether the parts are sold through an EverDrive retail partner or online direct to the consumer. The summer of 2008 promises to be a costly one for car owners with gas prices already averaging $4 a gallon. But, selecting a quality used part for auto repairs can help you save money for gas, reduce the overall cost of car ownership and thus, the cost of summer travel. It's not hard to find a quality used part. Used auto parts can be easily purchased at the thousands of stores operated by large auto parts retailers, such as O'Reilly's and Pep Boys, or through EverDrive's online site. About EverDrive.
