Cassels Garage has had the privilege of serving the people of Melbourne, Palm Bay, and Indialantic since 1966 with our auto repair and maintenance services. Over the 50+ years that we’ve been in business, we have seen certain trends and changes in the automotive industry. Some changes have been great, while others have been concerning.
One such trend in the auto buying industry called “kicking the trade” has come under scrutiny lately. A recent Wall Street Journal article titled “Dealerships Give Car Buyers Some Advice: Just Stop Paying Your Loan” explains what this underhanded practice is all about. Long story short, “kicking the trade” is when car dealers advise buyers (usually people looking to trade in their current vehicles) to let their auto loan lenders repossess their vehicles. Then the car dealers turn around and sell that buyer a new car.
Happy New Year everyone! Another year has gone and we just can’t believe how quickly it went. The year 2020 is here, and at Cassels Garage we are so excited to see what this year has in store for us. In our last blog, we discussed some New Year’s resolutions that you might actually be able to keep. This week we thought it would be fun to give you some resolutions that might be a bit harder to keep but would benefit you in the years to come. We are so excited to see what 2020 will bring and we hope we can help give you ideas for ways to better yourself this year. Here is a positive spin on some common New Year’s resolutions you may consider this year.
We recently said goodbye to 2019. The New Year is here, and many people reflect on the year before and look forward to the year that is soon to come. Last year has been what one might call “interesting”. There has been plenty of tragedy and destruction going on in the world, but there have also been changes, growth, and happy memories. As many people look back on the past year, they will also start planning for 2020. Many of us have made resolutions, some of which we probably won’t be able to keep come February. Here at Cassels Garage, we thought it might be beneficial to provide the people of Brevard County with some resolutions they can keep and live by in the upcoming year.
