Welcome to Gill Motor Company!
Gill Motor Company strives to give people all the benefits of buying
a new car at a used car price. I specialize in late-model, low-mileage
vehicles that have never been wrecked and still carry full factory
warranty. As the owner/operator and only employee, I have low overhead
and pass the savings on to you.
I personally purchase, inspect, service, wash and sell every vehicle
myself -- one at a time. You are a valued customer and friend, not a
number. -- Bruce Gill, Gill Motor Company

Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you offer on-the-lot financing?
Many used-car dealers offer on-the-lot financing because they
make more money on the financing than on the car. If you compare,
you will find that interest rates offered by "Buy-Here/Pay-Here"
lots are often 3 to 4 times as high as rates offered by local
banks! These high-rate loans can nearly double what the customer
pays for the vehicle.
Since my reputation is built on treating customers fairly and
honestly, I do not offer these high-interest loans. I recommend
that buyers talk to a local bank or even look into some of the
available online loans for financing. Lower-interest loans mean
fewer payments, smaller payments, or both.
Many salesmen utilize high-pressure tactics to get you into a car
with financing from the lot. They will often talk only about monthly
payments. I will talk with you about the total cost of acquiring the
vehicle and help you save money.
Should I lease or buy?
Would you rather lease your house or buy it? In the
vast majority of situations it is more advantageous for the customer
to purchase a vehicle rather than lease it. Leasing offers an
attractive monthly payment but includes many hidden costs. Often
customers who lease vehicles are asked to pay an upfront charge,
similar to a down payment, on something they will never own! Also,
when the lease terminates, customers are asked to cover the difference
between the projected residual value of the car and the actual
residual value. Unscrupulous dealers will inflate the projected
residual value of a car in order to keep monthly payments low. When
the lease terminates, these customers are left owing a large sum of
money just to return the leased vehicle! Factor in mileage limits and
early termination penalties and leases quickly lose their luster.
I do not offer leasing on my vehicles because it is not to the
advantage of my customers. I have built a reputation on acting in the
customer's best interest. Since leases do not fit into this category,
I do not push them.
What about the maintenance history of the vehicle?
Has the timing belt been replaced? Some cars do in excess of $5,000
worth of engine damage if this rubber belt breaks. Has the oil been
changed regularly? Premature wear of vital bearings and close-tolerance
components due to dirty oil can lead to expensive repairs.
Does your salesman...
...know which cars are likely to suffer this kind of damage? I do.
...know what an interference engine is? I do.
...know how to be sure the engine oil was changed on a regular basis? I
With over 30 years experience as an auto mechanic, I can answer these
questions and more. Come in and talk to me about my vehicles and get the
satisfaction of talking to a knowledgeable salesman for a change.
Should I buy a new car or a used car?
Most people buy new cars for the piece-of-mind offered by the
warranty. If you buy a late-model, low-mileage vehicle, it will still
carry a FREE factory warranty! Since the greatest depreciation occurs
during the first year, buyers can save thousands by buying a vehicle
that is only a year old yet still offers the protection of full factory
New-car buyers also enjoy the knowledge that their vehicle has never
been in an accident. Many repairs made to cars are done with inferior
parts that simply do not hold up as well as the originals. Some used-car
buyers often look to third parties such as CarFax to check on the crash
history of a vehicle they are considering. The fact is, a vehicle can
have been in a minor or even major accident, or had paint work done for another reason,
yet show up clean on a background check. There are ways to verify that
the parts on a vehicle are original and that no paint work has ever been
done on the vehicle. Can your salesman offer you this piece-of-mind? I
Used cars offer tremendous savings over new cars and can be every bit
as reliable. The trick is to know what to look for in a used vehicle. This
is where my experience and expertise benefits my customers.
What about sales tax credit?
When you purchase a vehicle and trade-in another, you qualify for
a sales tax credit. This sales tax credit reduces the customer's
out-of-pocket expenses. Depending on the vehicles involved, you could
end up paying no sales tax at all!
There are two ways to calculate this sales tax credit. Sometimes the difference between the
methods can amount to hundreds of dollars in additional expense for
the buyer. Can your salesman explain this to you, and offer you the
alternative that saves you the most money? I can.
