Quality Used Engines

Well… your engine just failed on your daily driver. You are now faced with the question, “Do I replace my engine or buy a new car?” There many benefits to purchasing a quality used engine. Here are five reasons why you’ll want to consider coming to Premier Auto and Truck Parts, and buy used engines in Grand Rapids, MI.

Cost Savings

One of the most obvious and sought after benefits of buying a used engine is the significant cost savings. Depending on the year and model of your vehicle, the cost of a new engine can vary drastically. This can end up being a price that is a lot more than you bargained for. Purchasing a used engine is the way to go when you are looking for a more affordable way to restore your vehicle to its former glory.

Extended Warranty Coverage

Most people think buying a used engine is a huge risk. At Premier Auto and Truck Parts we take the fear out of your next used engine purchase.  Every engine we sell comes with our industry leading 6-month parts warranty.  But we don’t stop there.  We also offer 1 Year, 3 Year, and Lifetime Parts and Labor warranties on all of our quality used engines.  What does this mean for you?  This means that if you purchase an extended 1Year, 3 Year, or Lifetime warranty with your used engine, not only will we provide a free replacement if that used engine fails, but we will also pay the labor to have a replacement used engine installed in your vehicle!

Trusted Reliability

Believe it or not, used engines may be more reliable than their new counterparts. The fact that they have already been tried and tested shows that they function and run properly, which can’t be said for brand new engines that have never been used. When making such a big purchase as an engine, knowing that it is dependable and reliable is a key benefit that can ultimately save you additional money in repairs or replacements.

Going Green

Saving some green isn’t the only benefit to used engines in Michigan, but they even help you go green. Buying used engines or any auto part, for that matter, prevents them from ending up in a landfill, and contributing to the waste stream. An increase in used engine purchases can also significantly decrease the amount of energy that would be used to produce new ones, which lowers the amount of greenhouses gases and emissions put into the environment.

Hassle-Free

Before you think that simply buying a new car is the easy route, don’t forget all that comes with it. From a new registration to changes in insurance policies, there are many more costs and headaches that come with purchasing a new car. While replacing an engine may cost a little extra work upfront, the benefits far outweigh both the cost and hassles that can come with a new car purchase.
