Richmond, NH, July 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Author and expert automotive technician Joe Boulay announced today the release of If That Car Could Talk, How to Locate and Maintain a Good Used Car, published by Outskirts Press. Boulay’s new guide assists anyone buying a used car -- be it their first or their fifteenth and regardless of their mechanical knowledge -- to spot the secrets a car can hide so they end up with a solid, reliable vehicle that won’t need unexpected repairs or break the bank with payments.
After a lifetime of experience repairing everything from dilapidated lawnmowers to day old Hondas, Joe Boulay knows buying a used car can be a risky adventure. He has also learned, however, that one can find out far more about a used car, easily and simply, than what one is told or what one merely sees.
In this handy primer on buying a reliable used vehicle, Boulay shows readers how they can expand their knowledge of any used car even if they have trouble telling an alternator from an air conditioning pump. He gives clear explanations, accompanied by helpful photographs, which show what to look and listen for, regardless of mechanical knowledge or even aptitude.
The author says that he’s never been pleased by the intimidation he’s seen women receive when trying to purchase or service their cars, and he’s also tired of seeing senior citizens sucked of their retirement dollars by unnecessary or ill done repairs. If That Car Could Talk arms all readers against maltreatment by any previous owners selling their cars and any mechanics or salespeople who do not have the buyer’s interests at heart.
Boulay also offers pragmatic tips on financing do’s and don’ts for used cars, on the best places to look for good used cars, and on how to either maintain a used car oneself or find a competent and trustworthy mechanic to keep it performing reliably so that one’s investment lasts well into the years ahead.
If That Car Could Talk is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
