What the leap in car prices means for you

If you have any question whether inflation is real, just try buying a car.

The average price for a new car was $47,000 in January, 2022 which is 22% above pre-pandemic prices. The used car market is even crazier with average prices up 45% (no typo!) over the past year to over $26,000 this January. With continued semiconductor shortages, supply-chain challenges and global disruption from the war in Europe, things aren’t expected to get cheaper anytime soon.

All this means that you want to avoid being forced into that market. The best way to do that is to keep your car healthy. The good news is that there’s now a service that makes car maintenance and repair as easy as ordering groceries online.

New auto repair company CarCare To Go delivers trust, transparency and free valet pick-up from your home or office. See why clients give them an average 5.0 star rating.

And now CarCare To Go is offering an extraordinary deal for first time clients — oil changes for just $20.22. No catch. Synthetic or blend for any make or model car. Just enter coupon code FIRST20 when you book.

It’s never been more important to know when and how to take care of your car. Here are a few helpful resources answering some of the most burning maintenance question: When should I change my oil, when should I replace brake pads and rotors, and how do I know when my tires need replacing?

With CarCare To Go, you’ll wonder why you ever took care of your car any other way.
