    The Advantages of Having a Lifetime Engine Warranty for Your Next Truck

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Truck owners often use their vehicles to haul heavy loads, tow trailers, and drive off-road. Though truck engines are designed to handle all these tasks, like any machinery they will require occasional maintenance. To help reduce the cost of unexpected repair expenses, Trucks Only offers all customers the option of purchasing a lifetime truck engine warranty or a VehicleOne comprehensive warranty. When you select one of these warranties you will enjoy:

    Protection Beyond the Manufacturer’s Warranty

    When you buy a pre-owned late-model truck with low mileage, it is likely the vehicle will no longer be under a manufacturer’s warranty. Most of the time, the manufacturer’s warranty only applies to the vehicle’s original owner. Even if the original warranty is still in effect, it will only offer you coverage for few years and a few thousand miles. When that warranty runs out, you will have no protection if you experience an engine problem. Purchasing a lifetime engine warranty or a VehicleOne warranty extends coverage on your vehicle well beyond what the manufacturer offers.

    Optional Roadside Assistance

    Engine problems rarely occur at convenient times. Should anything malfunction in your truck while you are on the road, you will have to pay for a tow or for emergency roadside assistance on top of any repair costs if your vehicle’s warranty has expired. When you invest in a VehicleOne comprehensive warranty, you can add roadside assistance, which means that you will have help if your truck breaks down while you are out driving.

    Security & Peace of Mind

    Most importantly, a warranty also assures you the pre-owned truck you are purchasing is in excellent condition. You should only purchase a used vehicle from a dealer who is confident enough in the quality of his vehicles to offer you the option of an extended warranty.

    At Trucks Only Sales, we buy and sell quality used trucks. Because we have fully inspected every vehicle on our lot, we are proud to offer customers a lifetime engine warranty. Call us at (480) 844-7071 or visit one of our Phoenix-area locations to select the perfect truck for you.

    Why Financing a New Truck Doesn't Have to Be a Complicated Process

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Once you’ve browsed a selection of vehicles, test driven a few, and decided to purchase one, your next step is figuring out payment. Unless you have enough in your bank account to buy your truck outright, you will probably need to finance it. When you shop at Trucks Only, we make the financing process very easy, so that you can drive away in your new truck as soon as possible. Here are some advantages of our on-site truck financing program:

    Avoid Bank Hassle

    When you go to finance at a bank, you may have to wait a long time to speak to a loan officer, because they deal with so many other clients. Also, the bank offers you a loan based on what they think you should pay, not on the type of vehicle that you need. If you choose on-site financing with us, you can complete your paperwork on site, then drive off in your truck.

    Pay in Installments
    Even if you have enough cash to pay for the truck, financing is still a good option. You don’t want to deplete all of your savings to buy your vehicle. When you finance, you get to pay in small installments each month, so buying a new car doesn’t have to be a financial burden.

    Build Good Credit

    Paying cash might seem convenient now, but it does nothing for your credit score. On the other hand, financing and making your car payments on time is a great way to increase your credit score. Good credit allows you to obtain lower rates on credit cards, mortgages, and any future auto loans you may want to take out.

    Trucks Only of Arizona can offer you an affordable financing plan when you decide to buy one of our used vehicles. Visit one of our many locations in the Phoenix area to find a truck that’s right for you, or call us today at (480) 844-7071.

    Tips for Towing with Your Truck from GMC

    Last updated 5 years ago

    One of the advantages that a truck offers over a passenger car, or crossover SUV is the ability to tow. Drivers often purchase trucks to tow boats or trailers on a family vacation, or because their business requires them to move large objects or heavy materials. Before you hit the road, however, you need to make sure that you aren’t towing more than your truck can handle.

    Always weigh your trailer to ensure that it doesn’t exceed the maximum towing capacity of your truck. Also, check the ratings of the trailer tongue and hitch to make sure they are strong enough to tow what you need. Watch the video below to learn how to avoid more common towing mistakes.

    If you are in the market for a used truck that will meet your towing needs, you can find the perfect vehicle at Trucks Only Sales. You can inquire about our current inventory by calling us at (480) 844-7071. We have several locations around the Phoenix area for your convenience.

    What You Need to Know About Maintaining Your Used Arizona Truck

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Drivers in Arizona who need to tackle unpaved roads or haul cargo often choose trucks, because these vehicles are designed for heavy use. To get the best value for your money, you should always purchase a used truck instead and be sure to keep it well maintained.

    If you properly maintain your used truck, it will provide you with reliable transportation for many years, and many thousands of miles. Make sure you take care of your truck by completing the following:

    Changing the Oil

    All vehicles need periodic oil changes to keep the engine well lubricated and protect its parts from unnecessary wear. Motor oil degrades over time, and if left unchanged it will eventually turn to sludge and cause your engine to seize up. Because truck owners often use their vehicles for heavy tasks, such as towing a trailer or hauling heavy cargo, it is especially important to regularly check and change the oil on your truck.  

    Refilling the Fluids

    Besides the oil, there are other fluids in your truck that you should check and refill or replace on a regular basis. If your vehicle has an automatic transmission, check the transmission fluid to ensure that your transmission stays in good shape. Coolant and brake fluid are also important to your truck’s reliability and your safety. Make sure that you check the level and condition of both of these fluids.

    Checking the Tires

    Keeping your tires inflated to the manufacturer’s suggested pressure, as indicated in your owner’s manual, is especially important when you own a truck. Too little air in your tires reduces your fuel economy and ride quality, especially when hauling cargo. Too much air increases the risk of a blowout, especially when driving over rocky terrain off-road. Keep an eye on your truck’s tires and carry a tire pressure gauge with you at all times.

    To shop Arizona’s best selection of used trucks, visit Trucks Only Sales at one of our Phoenix-area locations. We stock high quality pre-owned vehicles of various makes and models, and we also offer all buyers a Lifetime Engine Warranty. Visit our website or call us at (480) 844-7071 to inquire about our current vehicle inventory.

    How to Check the Transmission Fluid in a Truck

    Last updated 5 years ago

    The transmission is one of the most important components of your truck. A properly functioning transmission, whether automatic or manual, adjusts the gear ratio between the engine and the wheels to fit your current speed. All transmissions require fluid, though the specifications are different for manual and automatic vehicles.

    Checking the fluid level is especially important for automatic transmissions. Driving the car with too much or too little fluid can seriously damage the gears, which would require a costly repair. To find out how to check and refill the transmission fluid in your truck, watch this video.

    For a selection of used trucks with automatic and manual transmissions, come to Trucks Only. We carry most makes and models of truck. No matter what kind of truck you’re looking for, you can find it on our lot. Call us now at (480) 844-7071 for more information.
