While there are uncountable scores of vehicles that pass in and out of every person’s life each day, but seldom do people know very much about those vehicles. Here are three things you might want to know about your car and the other other cars on the road:
1. Most Cars Could Use a Look Over
If you see someone driving a car on the road, they probably have some amount of faith in the quality and the safety of the vehicle. In point of fact, though, most of those vehicles are a bit shy of perfect operating condition. Nearly eight in ten cars were found to be in need of maintenance or repairs. While on the road, be wary of the cars around you, and be sure to check your own vehicle before too long.
2. Cars Are Moving Toward the Automatic
Of course having your vehicle inspected is associated with a fee. Whether they are new or used automatic transmissions for sale, they will always cost more than their standard counterparts, and so do repairs. Even used automatic transmissions can run a pretty penny due to the small, intricate parts under the hood. Unfortunately, automatic transmissions are becoming more and more prevalent in the used car market and now outnumber manuals 10 to 1 in the US.
3. There is a Huge Talent Pool to Pull From
If you need used or new transmissions repair, it is certainly a matter of skilled labor, but there is a veritable army of mechanics forming to address those needs. Over 700 thousand car mechanics are in the US today, and that number is only growing. That means more talent in the field and more competitive shops driving prices down. Your automatic car may need work, and that work may be expensive, but the price should be reasonable and help shouldn’t be far from reach. More.
