Car Manufacturers Score with Super Bowl Commercials

, , , ,

Even if you’re not in the market for a new car, you can’t escape the efforts of car manufacturers to peak your interest. After all, more than 100 million people watched Super Bowl XLIX to see the New England Patriots take the lead from the Seattle Seahawks in the last few minutes of the game to win the championship.

Car Commercials for the Super BowlBut that’s not the only thing that captivated Super Bowl fans on Sunday. The highly-anticipated Super Bowl commercials included 11 spots for cars by Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Kia, Toyota, Lexus, Jeep, Fiat Chrysler, Dodge, and Chevrolet.

It’s a mix of nostalgic, funny, serious, and adventurous commercials designed to strike a chord with a wide range of drivers like young families with kids, off-road adventure seekers, the fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly crowd, tech-equipped car aficionados, and those in the market for a luxury driving experience.

Buy New or Used? – That is the Question

If you are in the market for a new car, manufacturers look for every opportunity to entice you by rolling out the red carpet with things like special interest rates, leasing options, cash-back incentives, and extended warranties.

But buying new isn’t for everyone. You can often save a lot of money and still enjoy a nice ride if you opt for buying a late model car and keep up on maintenance. At Beckley Imports, we service import and domestic vehicles from manufacturers featured in the Super Bowl and many others.

Inspection Services for Used Cars

If you’re thinking of buying used, we can even give the car a full inspection before you sign on the dotted line to let you know how the car has held up against the usual wear and tear on brakes, belts, tires, and other wearable parts.

Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, we’ll also inspect the engine, transmission, and other systems that can be a lot more expensive to repair. Armed with this kind of information, can help you make an informed decision when you buy used, or decide to avoid any headaches left behind by the previous owners and buy new.

When you’re looking to spend a substantial amount of money on a pre-owned European vehicle like BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volvo or any number of these beauties, you want to know that you’re getting the value you expect from a European Car – style, performance, reliability, and economical value!

Having your future vehicle inspected by someone you trust is also important. At Beckley Imports, our European car specialists give you the facts and verify the listing against the potential issues you may have after the vehicle purchase.

The Beckley Imports pre-purchase inspection includes:

  • An under the hood inspection, where we check the engine and any signs of leaks.
  • Body inspection, where we check out all the body panels to look for any signs of previous accidents or any damage the seller may have not reported.
  • Road test to see if the transmission is working properly, as well as the rest of the car.

As soon as you drive the car off the lot, the liability is all on you. So make sure that you have your vehicle inspected before you purchase. We’d love to help you make a good decision in your luxury ride!
