Establishes a Line of Credit

If you don’t have any credit built up, financing a used car can help establish a line of credit! As long as you are proactive with your payments, your credit will build overtime.

Pay On Time, Every Time

Paying loans like mortgages, student loans, or car loans on time can increase your overall credit score greatly! We will work with you to find a car payment that fits your budget so it’s easy for you to make your car payment on time each month.

However, if you do not pay your car note on time, it can decrease your credit score.

Check Your Credit Score 

When you apply for an auto loan, we’ll go over your credit report with you to make sure everything is accurate. The Federal Trade Commission has found that 5% of consumers have mistakes on the credit reports that affect their overall credit score. You can contest errors that you may find on your credit score. It is important to make sure that your credit report is accurate, removing any errors can improve your overall score.

Do Your Brakes Need to be Replaced?

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Your brakes are one of the most important aspects of your car for obvious reasons, but how do you know when it’s time to get a brake check up or new brakes altogether? Continue reading to find out!

Brake Warning Signs  

Screeching 

Do you hear strange noises when you hit the brakes? Whether you’re hitting them hard or not, if your vehicle makes a strange noise once the brake pedal is lowered, it’s a sign that your brake pads are worn out. When this occurs, it means that your brake pads are so worn down that the rivets they are attached to are rubbing on the rotor, causing damage inside your hood. The only way to fix this issue is to take it to the shop!

Pedal Height 

Are you noticing a difference in height of your brake pedals? This may mean that your pedals are sinking into the floor, which will make it even harder for you to come to a quick and sudden stop if you need to. This problem is associated with a poor hydraulic connection, meaning that if your master brake cylinder could be about to break.

Go With Your Gut

You are used to driving your vehicle. If you feel something is different or your car is acting strangely, do not hesitate to get your vehicle looked at. It’s always better to play it safe rather than sorry!

Do you have any questions about vehicle and brake safety? Interested in browsing the cars Drive Casa currently has in inventory? Contact us today and one of our vehicle experts will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
