Leasing a Pre-owned Vehicle at Team E-Z Auto  May 28th, 2013 

Leasing a car or truck from Team E-Z Auto begins with a discussion with your Customer Satisfaction Creator (CSC), who will assist you in selecting a vehicle of your choice. You will also be asked to fill out a credit application. Based on the information you supply, the term of the lease you want, the amount of down payment you have available and your overall financial obligations, your (CSC) will work to get you in a car. While we have traditional financing available, at Team E-Z Auto, we are our own bank. We provide our customers with in-house financing products including a lease program.

Choosing a car and a lease can be confusing. That’s why it is important to work with a dealer like me. My team of well-trained professionals will build a lease program around your financial situation. If you know how much you can afford in a car payment each month, then we can assist you in selecting a car or truck to fit that payment. In most cases, if you have 10% down (often as little as $500.00), sufficient income, and a verifiable residence, then we can get you a lease on a vehicle, regardless of your credit history (or lack of one).

Your contract will contain a residual value for the car you are leasing. When you have made all the lease payments, you can then buy the car for this residual price. If you decide to return the car at the end of the lease, you may be charged for excessive wear and tear to the vehicle and excessive mileage (anything over 15,000 miles per year).  However, if you purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease, then you would not be responsible for paying any fees as a result of excess wear and tear or excess mileage.

Leasing a car or truck will sometimes allow you to get a vehicle with a lower down payment and/or a lower monthly payment. But you should know that at the end of the lease you will have charges to settle before you can own the vehicle. The good news is that at Team E-Z Auto, we can even help you finance the balance at the end of the lease. I have a plan that will work for most buyers. Come by today and let’s get you riding in a car or truck of your choice.

See you soon!

Check Out The Car Before You Buy  May 13th, 2013 

I encourage all of my customers to test drive a vehicle before they buy or lease. What’s more, it is important that our customers know they can have our vehicles checked out at a mechanic of their choice. Often times another set of eyes may uncover an issue which in most cases we can get resolved before you take delivery of the unit. Keep in mind that we have already gone to great lengths to insure each car we sell is ready to be sold. 

At Team E-Z Auto we perform a 130 point inspection on every one of our vehicles. We identify problem issues and attempt to fix as many as we can before we display the unit for sale. We fully disclose what we know about the vehicle to the customer as well.

We cover all of our cars with a 3 month, 3,000 mile limited powertrain warranty. Furthermore, we offer service contracts for purchase at the time of delivery to provide additional protection for our customer.  I insist that our customers have good cars to drive and that they are fully aware of the information that we have about the cars. 

If you go to a dealership that does not encourage you or allow you to take the car to a mechanic of your choice before purchasing, then I say, “don’t buy it.” Instead, come to Team E-Z Auto and see me. My team will work hard to make sure you get a car you want, a car you can afford, and a car you can count on.
