Combating the European Com Borer
used car allowances
OST new car sales now involve the
trading-in of a buyer’s used car. M ore
and more people are asking: "W h y should
my used car seem to have several valu es?. . .
W hy should dealers in different makes of
cars offer me allowances differing materi
ally? . . . Does the largest allowance offered
mean the best deal for m e ?”
H ere are basic facts:
1 Yttur used car has seemingly different values
because competitive dealers are bidding to
seli you a new car.
2 Your used car has only one fundamental
basis of value: what the dealer who accepts it
in trade can get for it in the used car market.
The European corn borer, y ie of the worst of agricultural pests. Is being vigorously fought In tin
middle western states with men and machinery supplied by the federal and state departments. Oil, under com
pressed air, applied from burners under three hundred fifty pounds per Inch pressure, is being applied by men
who walk through the fields burning a twenty-foot wide swath at each trip across. The picture shows the oil
tank and compressor, and, above, the men applying the burning oil.
3 The largest trade-in allowance which is of
fered on your used car is not necessarily the
best deal for you. Sometimes it is; but some
times it is not.

4 An excessive allowance may mean that you
are paying an excessive price for the new car
in comparison with its real value.
5 Judge the merits of the new car in compari
son with its price, including all delivery and
finance charges. Then weigh any difference
in allowance offered on your used car.
When you are ready to trade-in your present
car, remember that after all you are making
a purchase and not a sale. You are buying a
new car and simply applying your present
car as a credit toward the purchase price of
the new car.
