Auto / Cars Consumer Complaints

Many Americans take pride into the cars they own. The car they purchase as well as how they maintain it may say things about them as an individual. Different people value cars differently. Some people look at cars like a hobby while others may see them as mere tools of transportation. And cars have a lifespan all their own as well.

When you look at a car, do you consider the manufacturer? Do you view it as the birthplace of the car? The quality of a car can be factored by who the manufacturer is. A company may have cycles of standard, poor, and excellent quality. One poor quality car doesn’t mean the company will forever have poor cars. A poor quality transmission may be a fluke of the machine that assembled your transmission that day.

However, after the manufacturer finishes the car you find it on the dealership lot where, whether you like your dealer or not, you find yourself drawn to the car. Dealerships are notorious for cheesy smiles and pushy sales. Their sales, however, are their paychecks and they want you to buy as much or more than your desire to buy the car. Car dealerships may sell new cars, used, or both. Either way, dealerships are one of your car destinations.

When you own a car it is no surprise that maintenance will be needed. Cars are machines and without proper care, they can wear out or break down. There are a number car repair facilities; some with better reputations then others. Some may be small and wonderful, while others may be large popular chains that do as minimal work as possible while charging an arm and a leg.

If your car is in the shop, then hopefully your auto insurance helps to provide you with a rental car. If not, you can always get car rentals for a decent price for the time it’s needed. Rental cars also come in handy when you travel as well. If you want to avoid many miles on your own or pick up a rental in a city you are visiting, rental cars provide you the independence you need for self transportation.

Just as you get hungry and need food, your car will need gas to keep it going. For a long time, cars and gas stations went hand in hand but with advancements in electric cars they may even need to expand into providing electrical charge stations besides providing gasoline or ethanol. Gas stations are necessary but if the tanks aren’t properly maintained, it can unknowingly cause problems for you and your vehicle. Some gas companies also have better public relations than others.

There are also accessories you may get for your vehicle including trailers and carriers. With a truck or SUV hauling a trailer, hopefully it won’t put too much strain on your vehicle but the quality of the trailer or carrier no doubt affects how well your vehicle hauls. A trailer is useless if the electric wiring cuts out. And a carrier that breaks off your car hitch can cause fury if your bike or luggage goes flying.

In the unfortunate event that something happens and you need help, there are towing services that can transport your vehicle to repair service. You may also wake up to find your car was impounded and then you’re at the mercy of the impound takes of your vehicle. Hopefully the towing process doesn’t harm your vehicle. And if your car is impounded, hopefully you can get your car back with little trouble.

Cars aren’t the only method of transportation however. Motorcycles are common on the road as well and can be found year round or seasonally. Motorcycles can be expensive themselves. Hopefully, the motorcycle won’t have many problems but if there are, like cars, there are repair shops that specialize on motorcycles; somewhere honest and knowledgeable where the work will be done correctly the first time without headaches or going over the promised time frame or budget.
