Buying New is No Great Value

If you are considering purchasing a new car this year, something to take into account is how much will that new car be worth after you sign all the paperwork and drive it home for the first time.  If you want to get a great value when purchasing a car, we at Pumpkin Fine Cars and Exotics suggest you take a look into buying a car that is "like new".  By most estimates, new cars can lose anywhere from 20 to 40% of their value during the first year of ownership.  If you pay $20,000 for a brand new car and want to sell it in a year expect to get no more than $16,000 in return.  This is even if you treat the car with the utmost care and do not put a lot of miles on it.  So, that being the case, here at Pumpkin Cars we stock a variety of pre-owned luxury cars that are "like new"....let the previous owner take that 20-40% loss in value and you get a car that is in great shape, low mileage and by appearance looks like it is brand new. 
To give you a few examples, right now in stock , we have a 2007 Honda Accord EXL with only 36 thousand miles priced right at $16,995.  This Accord is the top of the line with Power/Heated Seats, Moon Roof, Leather Interior, 6 Disc CD Changer, Alloy Wheels and XM Satellite Radio.  It is in Pristine Condition and looks like it was just delivered from the manufacturer!  Wear and tear is minimal with 36 thousand miles, this car performs like brand new.  You may be thinking what this car goes for brand new, well with this package it would have been in the range of $27 to $29,000.  Franck Freon, the owner of Pumpkin Cars, puts each car through his own rigorous evaluation before he will put his name and the Pumpkin logo on the car and sell it.  You can trust that Franck would not sell the car unless he would own it himself! At that value we have this 2007 Honda Accord EXL at almost HALF the price of it brand new, so you get the savings, but you also get a car that looks and acts like it is brand new!  Now that is a GREAT VALUE!!
Another GREAT VALUE here at Pumpkin Cars, right now is this phenomenal 2007 BMW 328i with an odometer that has barely moved at 31 thousand miles!  This fun and stylish car is a Pristine Silver with Black LEATHER interior.  It has Power/Heated Seats with Memory Positions, Run Flat Tires and CD Player.  Not only do you get the style and performance of a "like new" 2007 BMW 328i , but you also get a factory Warranty until February 2011 and BMW Service Plan until 2013!  Realistically priced at $22,995 own this BMW today and let everyone think you bought it new!  Stop in and see the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Pumpkin Cars today for a free test drive, or to just stop and see how close to new these Pumpkin Cars really are!

Pumpkin Adds New Team Member

Pumpkin Fine Cars is growing!  This week we added a new member to Team Pumpkin.  Greg Coughlin comes to us with a diverse, but very well rounded business background.  Greg completed a bachelors degree in Marketing from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia.  Previously Greg has worked in sales, marketing, retail management within a few different industries.  He will use this well rounded approach to contribute to the overall growth of Pumpkin Cars.  Greg also comes to Pumpkin relatively new to the car industry, which he and Franck view as an advantage, so he can be trained to do things "the Pumpkin way". Most of our customers know how different and better our "Pumpkin Way" is over other car buying experiences.  Greg couldn't be more excited to learn the industry from Franck Freon, who has an unrivaled passion for and extensive knowledge of automobiles.  The fact that Greg is not a veteran of the industry shows that Pumpkin Cars is not your typical "dealership" and does not sell cars the same way as the "big guys".  We present preowned vehicles of exceptional quality and offer an informed and low pressure approach.  Our customers realize that we do business, "the right way" here at Pumpkin and Greg is eager to make his mark.  In addition to seeing Greg in the show room working with customers, he will also contribute to the marketing and advertising efforts for Pumpkin, at which Greg feels that he is at the top of his game.  He is planning to bring a fresh perspective and innovative ideas to increase brand awareness and growth for Pumpkin, so stay tuned to see what exciting things Pumpkin Fine Cars has in store.  Stop in and say, "Hi" to Greg, call us at 609-646-7676 or email us at


Pumpkin Cars Setting Trends on Pricing

The headline article of the Automotive News published April 19, 2010 is titled “Shaking up the Pricing Model” . This article describes how large car dealerships are moving away from negotiating prices of vehicles and moving towards “no-haggle” or “no-hassle” pricing. The author states that one of the reasons for this was to make transactions more transparent, faster and easier and increase customer loyalty, resulting in repeat business. Let me be the first to say, “It’s about time!” For those readers of the Pumpkin Blog that are already valued customers, or even those of you who are familiar with our company, but have yet to purchase a Pumpkin Car know that this is the way we have been doing business for over a decade. Franck’s business model is simple. “Offer customers high quality vehicles and a high level of expertise”. We set a fair and competitive price, usually below Kelly Blue Book value for high quality pre-owned vehicles. The vast majority of the time our customers do not even ask for a better price because they know that what they are getting in return is a high quality Pumpkin Car, a very knowledgeable and friendly staff and a great car buying experience. There is your “transparency” and that is how we increase customer loyalty. Other than that, we offer outstanding customer service and treat everyone that walks into our indoor showroom as if they were lifelong customers. It really is that simple!! It comes as no surprise that Pumpkin Cars is a decade ahead of this “trend” that the big dealerships are just starting to try out. Franck Freon and the staff at Pumpkin Fine Cars and Exotics would love to see you stop in and say “Hi”, browse the inventory in our indoor showroom and take a Pumpkin Car for a free test drive today. No pressure, no gimmicks, no games…what you see is what you get. Make sure to check out the website frequently as our online inventory is updated daily at . Better hurry though because one “trend” you don’t want to miss out on is being the proud owner a Pumpkin Car! Call us at 609-646-7676 or email us at [email protected] with any questions.
