Repairing Old Cars Makes Cents

Today's budget-minded consumers are choosing to repair old cars rather than buy new vehicles.

East Patchogue, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2008 -- Recent news reports show that due to the weak United States economy, many carmakers are reporting significant declines in new car sales. Trends illustrate that instead of purchasing new cars, many American consumers are deciding to keep and repair their current vehicles.

The online traffic generated at, a free online used car parts locator service, reflects this trend. The Long Island-based company is reporting a 20% increase in visitors compared to this time last year.

Pete Sindone, Vice President of, says that "in this economic downturn, delaying a new car purchase can be a smart choice." He says, "Purchasing a new car, or leasing one, can mean another large monthly payment consumers have to fit into their already stretched budgets. By repairing the cars they already have, consumers can save money. With quality parts and regular maintenance, people can greatly extend the lives of their automobiles and get better fuel mileage." has also experienced a large number of requests for major car parts such as engines and transmissions. As Sindone explains, "When expensive parts such as the engine or transmission go, it is time to decide if fixing a car is worth it. If our queries are any indication, more and more consumers are deciding it is."

About is one of the internet's largest new and used auto parts locator services with over 1 million parts requests fulfilled. They have a nationwide database of over 7,000 parts dealers carrying new and used car parts, aftermarket parts, and rebuild parts for all foreign and domestic models. For more information visit
