South End Auto - F. A. Q.
2225 Graham Park Drive, Charlotte, NC 28273 - South End Auto

             
Frequently Asked Questions:


           Why should I buy a car from you? 
- it would be the smart thing to do...
- you can afford our cars
- in most cases - you won't have a car payment... 

          Why do you sell mostly rebuilt cars?
As a dealer - we choose what cars to sell. However - clean 
titled cars cost in excess of 90% of Book and that makes them hard to sell... Buyers always search for deals and rebuilt cars ARE great deals
(when properly fixed). It's easier to sell a car at 60% of Book.
     
          Will my rebuilt car hold value ?
Yes - better than clean-titled cars:
In many cases our customers keep their cars for many years. 
Generally - you buy at 60% and sell at 70% because:
   1. People trust other people more...
   2. The accident becomes a "distant history"... 
   3. Car was successfully driven for "x" amount of miles... 


          Can I get financing ?
Yes - most FEDERAL Credit Unions WILL finance our cars:
    - Pentagon Federal Credit Union
    - Navy Federal Credit Union
    - USAA Federal Savings Bank
    - Digital Federal Credit Union
Ask them how to become a member
(takes up to a day - even if you are not military...) You will need a Buyer's OrderPurchase Agreement from us in advance... 
     - ask your friends or family for a loan
     - get unsecured personal loan from your financial institution

          How can you sell cars at such a low price? 
     - We are not greedy... 
     - We have low overhead... 
     - We are efficient... 
     - We don't charge ANY paperwork fees...

          Why do you sell mostly VWs?
We specialized in a company and product that we liked...

          Why don't you sell certain brands or models?
Mercedes, BMW, Porsche & VW Touareg are over-engineered... 
VW Beetles are too tight and not practical. 
If you bought ANY of these - you will regret your purchase... 

          Is your rebuilt car safe for my teenager to drive?
Yes: We test-drive each car for several days. ALL of our neighbors, parents, siblings and friends drive cars rebuilt by us... 
As a matter of fact - our cars get inspected more than the 
"pre-owned certified" cars that franchise dealers sell...

          I can buy a damaged car and fix it myself, right?
Wrong :    
     - You don't have an "eye" to pick the right accident.
     - You don't have our experience and facility.
     - The car you repair WILL end up costing you MORE than 65% even 
if you don't pay yourself a dime... Then you would be too embarrassed 
to admit to others the true cost of your car...

           Why aren't you calling me back? 
We do not harass potential customers. 
You can always call us back or show up during business hours...
We stay busy with being productive and efficient
As a result - we have low prices, not intimidating salesmen...

           What is your best price
Our "best price" for any of our cars is $100,000...
If that's too much - make us an offer that will not make us laugh... 
See - if you want $1000 off - we could always raise the price with $1000 and then - reduce it "just for you" like other dealers do...
The reality is - we have ALREADY priced our inventory at rock bottom and there is not much you can go down after hitting the rock... 

            You guys had a car I wanted to purchase, but I don't see her on your web site anymore... 
That means the car is sold...  
You should act in a timely manner about the things you want in  life... 
 You should have married your high-school sweetheart ... :)

             What shall I do with my savings?
Take a vacation! Help a friend! Start a business! Enjoy Life !!!
