Buying a Used Truck

Making the decision to buy a used truck is much tougher than looking for a used car. Many questions arise like:
  • What was this truck used for?
  •  How was it maintained?
  • How much hauling and towing was it used for?
  • Has it been in an accident?
  • Was it used off road?

What should you look for when in the market for a used truck? Depending on the application that you intend it for, different things might be more important to you.  One thing you'll have to consider when buying a used truck is just how much towing and hauling the previous owner has done. Obviously, this isn't something you'll need to think about if you're buying a hatchback or a convertible, but trucks are different. If a truck has spent 50,000 miles hooked up to a trailer, it may have caused more than normal wear on the truck's mechanical components. Off-road use can sometimes be discovered simply by looking under the truck and look for scratches, scrapes and bent components. Many used trucks were used exclusively around town and never hauled anything more than the family sports gear. Others might have been used in a commercial application and have had a harder life. Asking the right questions will narrow your search and help you get the best truck for our money.
The good folks at South Sound Trucks have a wide variety of used trucks, lifted trucks, and SUVs. The staff will gladly assist you in finding the right used truck for you, your family, or business, and answer all of your questions. We have an awesome selection of vehicles just waiting for a test-drive. See you soon at the Olympia Auto Mall.

The Benefits of a Hatchback

Let’s talk about the features of today’s hatchback and how they can benefit the modern lifestyle. The most obvious feature is the Hatchback door itself. Full access to the rear cargo area can be used for the daily grocery store items or a weekend full of camping gear. Some models even offer self-closing hatchback doors. When more storage is needed, most hatchbacks have folding rear seats which allow even more cubic feet of storage and can accommodate longer items such as skis, snowboards, tents etc. When you combine all the great features with the fact that these are fun cars to drive, the hatchback makes a lot of sense. Fuel mileage is above average with many achieving near 40 mpg. Technology is not overlooked on the genre either. Fun stuff like Bluetooth connected audio and awesome safety measures like lane keeping assist and collision mitigation braking are some examples of technology in place in the modern hatchback.
Larger than a compact, and smaller than its SUV relative, the hatchback makes more sense than ever. Fun to drive, economical and safety make this a great choice of vehicle for a single person commuting to work during the week then off hiking on the weekend or a family headed to soccer.

Make the short drive to the Olympia Auto Mall and test drive all the great hatchbacks they have to offer. Whether you are looking for a new or pre-owned vehicle, you will be sure and fine the right hatchback to fit your lifestyle.  Have a great time looking and enjoy your new hatchback.

Buying a Used Car

Buying your next car is a big financial endeavor. Here are a few facts to protect you from car buying scams and make you better prepared to buy that used car.

1.     Odometer Fraud
Rolling back the odometer is has become far more difficult now that most newer models have gone to digital display. However, even the digital world (computers) can be hacked. A vehicle history report from a service like CARFAX can help determine if an odometer has been tampered based on reported events which are linked to odometer readings.
2.    Title Washing Salvaged Vehicles
Cars that have been classified as “Salvage” typically sell for a lower price. A common fraud, known as Title Washing attempts to clear the title of a car by altering the actual title documents or relocating the car to a different state. This is another area where a CARFAX report can help helpful. If the report shows the car was sold in another state, further investigation is needed to validate the car facts.
3.    VIN Cloning
Stolen vehicles are typically altered by taking vehicle identification numbers, VINs, from similar make and model vehicles. Check to be sure that all the VIN numbers on a vehicle match – dashboard, driver’s door, the vehicle’s frame, and of course the paperwork for the title.
If you are not the savvy car buyer but prefer to invest in used car, then take a trip to the Olympia Auto Mall. 10 dealers, 9 brands, and 1 convenient location to serve all of your needs – New Cars, Used Cars, Service, Maintenance, and Parts, and very friendly service.

Your Child’s First Car

You waited for those first words, the first tooth, that first step, but are you ready for your child’s first car? It's hard to believe, but your son or daughter has already learned to drive and now it’s time to consider that first car.

Yes, in some ways it’s a relief not to be his or her taxi driver, but now the concern is safety and price, and to some extent, your child’s happiness over their first vehicle. While your teen will certainly think sporty and sleek, you want protection and safety. Set your child’s expectations and steer toward a midsize vehicle. Midsize sedans and small SUVs tend to be the safest vehicles, offering more protection in the event of a crash. Choosing a 4-cylinder over a 6 will offer economy and perhaps safer driving speeds.

Once you have set expectations that safety is the priority, work with your teen find the right vehicle.
  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Six air bags
  • Stability control
  • Four stars on crash tests / top safety picks

Finally, include your child in the test drive process. Not every vehicle is suited to every person. Your child should feel comfortable and have a good view over the dash, in the mirrors, and out the rear.

Making your teen part of the process of choosing a safe vehicle will make the entire process an enjoyable journey. For expert advice and the best used cars in the Olympia, Washington area, visit the Olympia Auto Mall.
