Math can sometimes be tricky, but when it comes to figuring out the cost benefits of rebuilding your car’s engine, the answer is very simple. Installing a remanufactured or rebuilt engine will extend current vehicle life at a significantly lower cost than buying a new car or truck, adding up to big savings.
“For a variety of reasons, purchasing a new car may not be feasible if your car or truck is diagnosed with major engine damage,” said Rick Simko, chairman of the Engine Rebuilders Council. “Once you do the math, you’ll see that installing a remanufactured or rebuilt engine is the sensible economic alternative to all the costs associated with buying a new car.”
For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, a vehicle’s engine can be repowered with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine, gaining years of reliable service without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates. The Engine Rebuilders Council developed a cost comparison chart of examples illustrating the cost difference between purchasing a new vehicle and repowering your existing vehicle with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine.
With rebuilding, a vehicle’s engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined and remanufactured/rebuilt. Unlike used or junk yard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, remanufactured/rebuilt engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs.
