BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Some people simply love their car and never want to buy a new one. But what if the car you adore experiences serious engine trouble? Repowering is the answer, says the Engine Rebuilders Council.
"There are many car owners across the country who simply love the way their car looks, drives and feels, and they want to keep it forever," said Ken Carter, chairman of the Engine Rebuilders Council. "When serious engine trouble strikes, installing a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is an ideal way to economically extend your vehicle's life and make sure your old car is your 'cool' car that runs like new."
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. With repowering, 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.
"For a variety of reasons, purchasing a new car may not be feasible and for those vehicle owners who simply love their car, buying a new one is a last resort," said Carter. "If your car or truck is diagnosed with major engine damage and you don't want to let it go, talk with your technician about your options. By repowering with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine, you can continue having the 'coolest' car around."
