THE average car on the road today is 11 years old, automakers report. If yours is among them, here’s good news: You can pocket serious savings on repairs with high-quality used parts.
Here’s how it works: Go online to www.pullapart.com to find the price of the part you need and see whether the vehicle’s in stock at the nearest location. If it’s not, you can see which other vehicles have the same part and whether they’re in stock.
At the Pull-A-Part superstore, you’ll see vehicles on stands, arranged in rows. The staff or the store computer can tell you where to find the vehicle you want, and you pull the part yourself. The supply turns over daily, so if you can’t find the vehicle you need today, you can sign up to be notified when it’s available.
As a bonus, you can be green while saving some green. When you buy a used car part, you’re keeping it in circulation instead of sending something perfectly useful to a landfill.
