It's Cheaper to Keep 'Er


Have you ever wondered which is cheaper, but a new car or fix the one you now have? Well that is determined by how well your present car was maintained. At Express Oil we always advocate to properly maintain your vehicle so keeping it won't result in expensive breakdowns.

The latest trends show that on average people keep their vehicles 11.7 years. Many keep their vehicles well beyond that. That should tell you something. Also the average price of a new car just hit $40,000. So the question is it cheaper to buy a new $40,000 car or properly maintain the one you have and keep it for more years. With rising gas prices and more to come, taking on another high car payment may not be for you.

Today's vehicles are high tech with computer controlled engines, great gas mileage, AC, touch screens, voice command, bluetooth, wifi, air bags, power everything, super sound systems, cameras, and an array of warning systems just to mention a few. Has vehicle technology peaked? What more could you want? If you have a vehicle you like and maintain it properly, why not keep it? Do you want another high car payment?

At Exress Oil we can properly maintain your vehicle and do repairs if necessary and only when necessary. We are your one stop shop. Regular servicing has been proven to avoid repairs and expensive breakdowns. Our technicians check your vehicle and make recommendations for periodic servicing. It is all in our data base which indicates when servicing is required for any vehicle. Our website has numerous articles on the "whys" of various services. Go to

You may ask "my vehicle is in great condition except the engine is shot". At Express Oil we can install a low mileage and warranted used engine and put you back on the road for years to come. We have many happy customers who have done this. We also offer zero interest loans if needed. Go to our website and read the article "Nice Car, Sick Engne".
