Engine repowering keeps new car costs at bay
By Ken Carter
Buying a new car might sound great in theory, but in these uncertain economic times, it might not be the right investment. Other options, such as replacing your worn-out engine with a rebuilt or remanufactured engine may be a much better economic decision to keep new car costs at bay.
Installing a rebuilt or remanufactured engine saves big money in the long run. For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, you can repower your vehicle with a remanufactured or rebuilt engine and gain years of reliable service without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates.
With a rebuilt or remanufactured engine, a vehicle’s worn-out engine, or an identical engine, is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined, and rebuilt. Unlike used or junkyard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, remanufactured and rebuilt engines are dependable, reliable, and backed by excellent warranty programs.
Before you consider a new vehicle purchase, talk with a professional automotive technician to see if a rebuilt or remanufactured engine is the right choice for you.
