At Kendall Ford of Wasilla we are proud to bring you great vehicles, but even more than that we want to educate on the car buying experience.
One question consumers ask themselves when they think about buying a vehicle is whether or not to trade in their current vehicle. Some people believe the older the car is the less value they will get for their vehicle. Some think that the more mileage the vehicle has on the lesser the trade-value. Although these are right in theory there is more too it then just that.
According to The Simple Dollar the longer you hold onto a car, the less it depreciates each year, and thus the more cost-effective it becomes. A 2003 F-150 has a trade value much less than a 2006 F-150, but if you break it down into the depreciation per month, the person owning the 2003 F-150 lost much less money per month than the owner of the 2006 F-150.
Another thing to notice is that car depreciation is at its worst during the first few years of owning a car. Thus, to maximize the bang for your buck, your best bet is to buy an older model that way it doesn’t depreciate thousands of dollars each year you own it.
Therefore, at Kendall Ford of Wasilla we believe the best value in cars is buying a late model used and driving it until the repair bills start seriously racking up. This plan minimizes the per-year cost of your car and gives you the most years of cost-effective reliability. If you insist on buying new (not the best move), the more years you drive your older car, the more cost-effective your purchase becomes.
At Kendall Ford of Wasilla we are proud to bring you reliable vehicles at great prices that are impossible to turn down!

Two main aspects that go into buying a new vehicle is how reliable and safe it is. Consumers do research on top of research to determine which vehicle is right for them, and one of the main things on the list is reliability. At Kendall Ford of Wasilla we pride ourselves in providing reliable vehicles. So what makes a vehicle reliable? How often it needs repairing, and how much it will cost you to get your vehicle back to running properly. A car could break down five times, but only cost you $50 each time to fix, or it could break down once and set you back $1,000. That’s why the Reliability Index figure combines several elements – cost, inconvenience and rate of failure – making it a ‘real world’ picture of car ownership. A vehicle’s reliability can seriously affect how satisfied you’ll be with a car over the years, and it can significantly influence resale value when you’re ready to replace the vehicle. When you’re considering the purchase of a car, there are only a handful of factors that really matter – reliability is one of them. So come out to Kendall Ford of Wasilla and let us assure you that our vehicles are not only affordable but reliable as well.
Here at Kendall Ford of Wasilla we want to ensure the great people of Wasilla that we are a reputable dealership with hundreds of amazing used vehicles to choose from. One great reason to buy used is the obvious reason of low prices. You can get great vehicles for almost half the price of a new vehicle. Along with great pricing there are several other reasons to buy used.
One trend that makes buying used a better option is the proliferation of certified pre-owned programs. The idea started with luxury brands such as Lexus and Mercedes-Benz. Today, most manufacturers have instituted these programs allowing you to know that the vehicle you are looking at is safe and reliable.
General benefits of CPO cars include:
Manufacturers usually consider only late-model, relatively low-mileage used cars and trucks with no history of major damage for their certification programs.
CPO vehicles undergo a rigid inspection process of mechanical and cosmetic items before they obtain certification.
CPO vehicles are normally covered by a warranty that extends beyond the original factory warranty. The warranty often includes the same features as a new-vehicle warranty, such as roadside assistance.
Several manufacturers offer special financing on CPO vehicles, usually at lower rates than those on new-car loans or the typical, higher used-car loan rates.
Buyers should be aware that they pay more for a CPO car than for a typical used car, but the higher price should be worth it for the extra attention, coverage and the peace of mind buyers receive. At Kendall Ford of Wasilla all of our amazing vehicles have gone through our own personal certification program! Come out today and check out great inventory!
