Shopping for a new car might not be your first priority at the moment...
Nevertheless, you might want to finance or lease a new car later this year, and if that's the case, you might have some questions about best practices during this global situation and how we're handling things at our dealership. We've put together a list of frequently asked questions that have come up recently, in case you have similar concerns.
Should I be concerned about potential exposure to Covid-19 in automobiles?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) maintains that the greatest health risk comes from contact with people who are sick, not surfaces. This is why the U.S. government restricted people from entering the country, not cargo. Coronaviruses are fairly easy to render harmless with common household disinfectants, and we are regularly sanitizing our entire inventory. You can find a list of many common COVID-19 fighting products here for your reference.
What precautions can I take, if I am worried about exposure?
By researching the trim features and colors that interest you ahead of time through our user-friendly website, you can reduce your time spent at our the dealership should you choose to come in for a test drive. You can get pre-approved for credit, obtain a value for your trade-in vehicle, and estimate purchase or finance payment options right here on our convenient website. Should you choose to take advantage of our Matthews Motors Of Goldsboro Concierge Delivery Service, you can conduct business remotely. We offer this delivery service to all clients within a 25-mile radius of our dealership.
Will there be better deals now?
Yes. Interest rates have gone down, which means lower financing costs for buyers. There are also 90-day deferred payment programs the associates in our finance department can tell you more about.
What does this mean for Service and Parts availability?
Our state-of-the-art service department and fully-stocked parts department are both open and ready for your business. We encourage everyone to make an appointment for their next affordable oil change or fast brake job before coming in because we are practicing the CDC recommended disinfecting guidelines during this time, which includes social distancing in all guest lounge areas. We make it easy to schedule your service online.
As we continue to take all necessary precautions, we encourage you to visit the CDC website for more information on how to help keep you and your loved ones safe.
