Tired of buying used cars that needed serious repairs soon after buying?
At Nu 2 U Car Sales, we have a different approach to selling you a used vehicle. We like to keep things simple for you. At Nu 2 U Car Sales, all of our incoming vehicles are thoroughly checked over by our A.S.E. Certified Master Automobile Technician prior to sale. Why? The first reason is because we hear about problems people have with recent used vehicles purchases elsewhere all the time. "I just bought this car and the head gasket went!" ... "I drove it a month and it needed a transmission!" We try our absolute best to ensure that won't happen to you with one of our used vehicles by having it inspected by qualified people who know cars.
Not having a used car checked by an independent mechanic, Yahoo© states, is one of the most common mistakes people make when they buy a used car. That is the main reason why our cars, minivans, sport utilities and trucks are inspected. When you are looking to buy a previously owned vehicle, condition is absolutely everything. Even the most reliable used vehicle can become a money pit if it was or becomes poorly maintained. Before you buy a used vehicle, that car, minivan, SUV or truck should be inspected by a qualified mechanic. Such a thorough diagnosis costs around $75.00 to $100.00. A good mechanic can inspect and report to you if the car has been in a major accident, has a hidden problem or needs a large amount of costly work to be reliably operable. This brings up another reason why we inspect each car: Because many accidents are never reported to insurance companies each year. CarFax© and the like may not have reports on every problem or accident because of this matter of fact. Subsequently, these accidents are never pick up on by car report companies. That is not to say a CarFax© report on a car is useless, that simply is not true. A CarFax© report is valuable and worth the money spent, especially on higher-priced vehicles. But an actual mechanical inspection is also needed in addition to reports as experts recommend. At Nu 2 U, we have completed the needed mechanical inspection for you. We also welcome a second opinion inspection by your mechanic, if you so desire.
Our A.S.E. Certified Master Automobile Technician checks each vehicle Nu 2 U Car Sales gets in with a 150-Point Inspection. Ask the small used car dealer you were last at if they have a certified technician check their cars. At Nu 2 U Car Sales, our main source for cars is generally from private owners. Our A.S.E. Certified Master Technician is sent out to check vehicles we are considering. However we get trade-ins too and obviously the car is being traded-in for a reason..... We also occasionally buy non-running vehicles from wholesalers or auction houses. Our 150-point inspection will determine any lack of maintenance, safety issues, structural problems, running problems,internal engine problems and evaluates the transmission. Only then can we determine the true value of the used car, minivan, sport utility or truck. We feel that if you want a really decent car in today's used car market you need to spend $2500.00 or more. Any of our vehicles priced $2500.00 and up are completely ready to drive. Safety issues, major problems and running troubles are all repaired prior to Nu 2 U Car Sales offering the vehicles for sale.
Yes, Nu 2 U Car Sales has less expensive vehicles too. The cars from the other half of the $2500.00 price line. Not every used car evaluates to top-notch! Inexpensive vehicles generally are older, higher mileage models, or may need body/paint work. Sure we can replace a dented fender or hood, but we don't paint cars. So rust you see is rust you get.
Our A.S.E. Certified Master Automobile Technician evaluates the cheap cars too. If a used car still checks good as having service-able life left, Our technician will make the vehicle operable and safe. We have every car we get checked, unless bought as a parts car. If the technician says a vehicle isn't worth the repairs it needs we part it out and scrap it. Unsafe vehicles should not be on the road!

Maintenance & Repairs:
Every vehicle needs fuel to run. Every vehicle needs regular maintenance. Every used car, minivan, SUV or truck eventually needs fixed again. That's why new cars cost so much, they don't break! Well, that's not always true, but it is supposed to be the general idea behind a new car, minivan, SUV or truck.
