Trade in a gas guzzler

The technicians at Joy Automotive have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4×4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.

Trade-In Your Gas Guzzler

We know you’ve wanted a new vehicle but have yet to afford it. We also know you’re trying to be environmentally friendly and want to save as much money as possible. Luckily, we have a deal for you!

We want to invite you to bring in your old car and trade it in for one of our beautiful models—we’ll give you the best value for your old car, and with our low prices on our vehicles, we’re sure you’ll be able to find one that suits you! So come on down, and let us show you how easy it is to have a new vehicle at a reasonable price.

Are you wondering why you're paying so much for gas these days?

You’ve probably noticed that gas prices have been rising steadily over the past few years. But what does it mean for you as a consumer? If you’re used to driving a large car or SUV—or even a small sedan—you might not have realized how much of an impact your decision to purchase one vehicle over another can have on your budget.

Suppose you drive a car that gets 20 miles per gallon (MPG). That means that if you drive 100 miles, you’ll need 10 gallons of gas to get there. When the gas price is $3 per gallon, those 10 gallons cost $30—but if the price goes up to $4 per gallon, those same 10 gallons will cost $40! That’s an extra $10 for just filling up once!

Now imagine how much extra money you’d be spending over the course of a month or year as prices continue to rise. By trading in your old vehicle for something newer and more efficient, you could save thousands of dollars over time by reducing your fuel consumption and helping keep our planet healthy at the same time.

If you haven't already traded in your old gas guzzler for a new, more efficient model, it may be time to consider it.

Old gas guzzlers are vehicles that have poor fuel economy. They use more fuel than other types of cars and produce a lot of pollution. If you’re still driving one, there are many reasons why it may be time to trade it in for something more efficient.

The first reason is that gas guzzlers are expensive to maintain and repair. They require frequent trips to the mechanic, which means paying high fees for labor and parts. You’ll also spend more money on fuel because your car won’t get good mileage.

Another reason is that gas guzzlers don’t protect the environment as other vehicles do. Because they consume so much fuel, their emissions pollute our air and contribute to climate change—which can lead to heat waves, flooding, and other natural disasters worldwide.

If you’re ready to make a change by trading in your old gas guzzler for something more efficient, contact us today or drive down to our shop!

So you've got a big decision to make: do you sell your car yourself? Or do you bring it to Joy Automotive?

Well, here’s the thing: if you sell your car yourself, there’s no guarantee that it’ll get the attention and care it deserves. And that means someone else will end up buying the thing! Then what happens when they discover all of its problems? Not only have they wasted money on a broken-down vehicle, but now they’re also stuck with it.

Let us ensure that doesn’t happen to you—we’ll take care of everything from start to finish. We’ll evaluate your vehicle and give you an honest quote on its worth.
