Charles, Detroit, Texas discussed on The Car Pro Show


So at the press week of the Detroit auto show, they reveal the winners of the twenty nineteen North American car utility, most of his called that SUV and truck of the year awards and were the winners were the Genesis g seventy the Hyundai Kona and Kona e v. And they ram fifteen hundred your impression, I think they got it. Right. I told you weeks ago the Rambo was going to be a shoo-in for truck of the year. The counter we in fact, we've got reviews up the car pro USA dot com on all three of those vehicles. That are very recent g seventy was fantastic to counter was great the ram is unbelievably quiet inside and rats like Lexus. I mean, it's just it's a it's a blow your mind truck. Wow. Yeah. And that's pretty strong words from me. Let's talk to Al in Fort Worth Texas era. Welcome. Are you doing good? How what can I do for you? Oh, jeez. Six. I'm sorry. To seventy equinoxes. To bankruptcy. And. Anyway, I have a. Collection agency. Excuse me. Well, no, they only pay for one year. Forums. In four years. Well, I think it is you're I'm sure the interest rate tie and the shorter the term the less interest. You're going you're going to be paying so. Yeah, I think why would they be so. Well, was the equinox included into bankruptcy. Yeah. It was. Yes. Okay. Well, there's an opportunity here to get their money as opposed to. You just blow them off which you can do. I don't think it's it will affect your ability to purchase cars in the future. And and so I don't think it's a good idea. It shows a lot of good faith for somebody to file bankruptcy. Which I I mean, I totally understand. I've known thousands of people who did it. But you know, they did it. A lot of times. They'll Steph the finance company companies got their car, and nobody touch him for seven years. So. Opposite is true. If you pay them they're going to the next loan that you apply for for a car. They're gonna look and say this guy was in bankruptcy Betty pages car off. And that's the top thing that automotive lenders look for they don't care if you pay your mortgage. They don't care if you pay Sears. But if you pay your car, well, and you have a history of that they'll go with you. Okay. I didn't know whether it is traded in or just. I I would let sometimes what when was the bankruptcy discharged. Now. Okay. I'd I'd give it another year. And and get a good history there, make sure those payments around time and in the future, you ought to be just fine. So what I'm saying? Go ahead and pay the four seven four hundred. Title. Obviously don't agree to anything. You can't do that four hundred is going to stretch you. Then I wouldn't. Yeah. Distress because I'm a social security. So it's a stretch. Well budget together if you could pull it off you'll be better off doing that. I promise you, and I've got some good dealers. That are really good in situations like this when you get ready to car pro USA dot com under certified dealers and take a look sandy in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome. Sandy, are you there? Okay. That's okay. Let's pretend you back on hold on. We'll come back to her in a minute and talk to Dan in Abilene, Texas, Dan, welcome. Hey, how are you? So my question is on the upcoming twenty twenty Lincoln aviator. I guess it debuted at the Detroit the show. Yes. Just wondering on that. One of the options comes with a it's a hybrid. But they're not advertising the mileage so just a little curious as to why. Well, it's real simple. Those things have to be certified by the EPA, and that can't be done as long as the government shutdown. So it is starting to stack up new vehicles that were due out already, but they can't because of the certification and until until this stalemate is concluded we won't see any new product deliveries now. Ator is it's on the same chassis drive trains and everything is a new explore the twenty twenty explore this coming out. So it's vastly different from years past with explore. This explorer is rear wheel drive. They've been front wheel drive since two thousand eleven you can get all wheel drive two by the way, which probably a pretty good idea. But I had I don't know if you're a newsletter subscriber or not, but we had a big article in this week's newsletter about the new twenty twenty explore with a lot of the details now pricing. No fuel economy yet. That will be forthcoming as soon as the government thing is settled. Looks great though. Okay. Well, listen. Thank you. You're more than welcome. Yeah. The new aviator looks really good. And I just had the Nautilus. And it was amazing. I just thought it was fantastic. Really? Did. Let's talk to Charles in Los Angeles. Charles, welcome. Oh, thanks so much. I got kind of an interesting question. I had a Mercedes deal six hundred a couple of years ago. I loved it. I sold it. And I'm looking at an S L six hundred twelve versions anywhere from an old horse and. What's the active body control and had an issue with the sales pitch had to rebuild it? So a costly. But it was a fun car this adopt a daily driver. What do you think of my is this a silly request is now? I don't think. So at all fact, I think that that v twelve would probably still be around if we hadn't seen gas prices, spike. But history wise, I never heard of a of a single problem with that with that vehicle. In fact, I saw one of these cars, sell it was you're looking at the convertible. I think right. That's correct. Yeah. All right. That's. Twenty two thousand eight sedan sell at the auction. Just this week. With six hundred the big one. And I think I don't remember what it brought. But I remember thinking that's a lot of money for that car houses around thirty thousand mile away. But it brought big money. And and I think they always will just because there's never many of them out there. It's got a good clean history report Charles, and if you can find a repair facility besides the dealership that specializes in Reseda, and there's a lot of them out there. Then I think, you know, those little things that do come up just because it's a ten year old car. I think those things do come up you'd save yourself a lot of money, but I'm not going to a dealership with this car, but finding a good Mercedes specialty shop. That will that will you build a relationship with and and trust them. And now, they're honest. But yeah, I know I think I think that would be a fantastic weekend car. I wish I had one myself. I'll tell you that.

Coming up next
