We know that high gas prices are affecting everybody, mainly their wallet at the pump. Aren’t we all tired of jumping from one gas station to another looking for the golden ticket…a lower price? So we wanted to share some valuable information to help you save gas and relieve a little of that stress on your wallet.

1. Remove Excess Weight

Extra weight reduces mileage, especially when driving up inclines. Each additional 100 pounds in your vehicle reduces your gas mileage by about 1%. Adonis Auto recommends removing all the unnecessary weight from your car such as third-row seating (when not in use), hauling cargo on your roof, and any other items that aren’t essential that would weigh you down. This way, your vehicle won’t have to strain itself [...]

Should I buy a new or used car?

When thinking about buying a new car, we all imagine the shining new paint with the new car smell and the glistening tires. But wait, there are a few things we need to take into consideration beforehand. 

Most new cars come with trendy features and advanced technology that are made to last for several years. This means that you can still get the car you want, but at a much lower price when buying it a few years later. That is what we do at Adonis Auto, provide great inventory with low down payments, even if you don’t have the best of credit.

financial other benefits used car

While most are aware of the cost-saving benefits that come with purchasing a used car compared to a new one, the benefits of going the used route do not stop there by a long shot. There are actually several other reasons why used cars are highly beneficial to their buyers, some in related financial areas and some in other realms you may not have even considered.

At Adonis Auto Group, we’re happy to offer a variety of used cars for sale in Arlington and other parts of Texas. Not only do we offer one of the widest selection of used cars on the market, we also help our clients understand the full range of benefits they get from going this route.

fuel economy fact fiction

When it comes to any vehicle you own, whether new or used, fuel economy is an important metric to be tracking. Especially with gas prices very high at the moment, vehicle owners are looking to maximize their fuel economy in any way possible — but this often results in them taking steps that actually have little or no impact on their fuel economy, avoiding the approaches that might actually help in the process.

At Adonis Auto Group, not only are we here to offer a wide selection of used vehicles in Dallas and many other areas of Texas, but also to assist our clients with important vehicle qualities like fuel economy, gas mileage and more. There are a number of misconceptions out there about how you can maximize fuel economy — and then a few approaches that are legitimate. Today’s blog will go over both of these areas to separate fact from fiction when it [...]

avoiding odometer rollback fraud

While we wish it were not the case, the reality remains that odometer rollback fraud is a significant issue for some used car buyers today. Mostly present in cases of private sales, odometer rollback fraud involves disconnecting, resetting or otherwise altering the number of miles indicated by an odometer, and takes place on thousands of vehicles every year.

At Adonis Auto Group, we’re here to not only provide a huge selection of quality used cars in various parts of Texas, but also to ensure our clients completely avoid any and all risks of odometer rollback fraud — which you’ll never, ever deal with for any of our vehicles. How does odometer rollback fraud work, how can you tell if it’s been attempted, and how can you completely steer clear of situations where such fraud might be attempted? Here’s a primer.

differences used car inspections appraisals

While the terms car inspection and car appraisal are similar, they are not the same when it comes to used vehicles. Both involve the assessment and evaluation of a vehicle to assess its qualities and roadworthiness, but the methods that go into each are very different, as are the situations where they’re used.

credit score car buying

While many of us are aware that credit score matters for any situation where you’re taking out financing, such as a home or used car purchase, fewer know exactly why this is the case. Credit score, a reflection of your credit history and repayment capabilities over a period of time, is one of several factors that plays a major role in getting you approved for a given auto loan.

At Adonis Auto Group, we’re happy to not only offer a huge range of used vehicles in Arlington and surrounding areas, but also to offer bad- and low-credit loan options for those who have lower credit scores, and even no-credit loans in some cases. Why does credit matter in the used car loan and purchasing world, and how can you ensure your credit is where it needs to be? Here’s a primer.

research used car shopping

Like with any other high-value item you’re considering purchasing in the near or distant future, doing some quality research before buying a used car is important. No one in their right mind wants to toss around thousands of dollars without knowing exactly what they’ll be getting in return, and given all the different features and qualities a used car will present, and how these vary between makes and models, preparing yourself ahead of time is particularly important in this realm.

At Adonis Auto Group, we’re here to offer not only a robust selection of used cars, which we offer to a variety of Arlington clients, including those with no or bad credit, but also assistance with the important details that go into this process. What are some of the key areas of research you should be performing before buying any used car, plus some general tips for your approach and who you should be working [...]

avoiding used car mistakes

No one wants to make a costly mistake when carrying out any kind of major purchase, with used car sales serving as a primary example. If you fail to notice an important detail about a vehicle, or make some kind of other mistake that involves you paying too much or being unaware of a major car problem, you could find yourself in a situation where you’re “upside down” on your car purchase, paying down a car loan that’s worth far more than the actual vehicle and harming your finances in multiple ways.

At Adonis Auto Group, we’re here to help. Our quality used car dealership services remove many of the potential speedbumps that come with the used car purchasing process, and we even offer bad and low-credit car loans for those who may have trouble qualifying in other locations. We’ve seen a number of mistakes made by used car buyers over the years, and we’re [...]
