The Best Used Cars in Maryville, TN

Hey guys! Long time, no talk. We've been busy on our end trying to improve our business: whether it's our website, our customer service, or the processes we create, our goal is to always improve. When you step foot into our business, we hope you feel a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Culture is important to us.

With that said, we received word that we were voted the Best Used Car Dealer in Maryville, TN for the 8th straight year by readers of The Daily Times. Thank you for voting for us! Now isn't the time to rest on our laurels, so here are a few new things we're doing:


  • Deal of Fortune - we've brought back an old favorite, albeit with a twist. With every purchase, you have an opportunity to spin a wheel and win awesome cash prizes up to $300.
  • Refreshments - we now have a refrigerator in our lobby stocked full of water, Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, etc. that is absolutely free to you!
  • Coffee - we have a fully stocked Keurig machine in our lobby that is also free 
  • Internet Sales - we have hired Jake Martin (the legend) to better serve the increasing internet traffic and help keep our online presence fresh

Things are exciting here as we roll into our favorite time of year, Fall. 

PUBG

Normally, we keep these blog posts professional and moderately on topic. Today, it will not be very professional and only partly on topic. But it will be fun. As some of you may know, a video game called Playerunkown's Battlegrounds has swept the world by storm. Yes, world. The whole world. It is currently the seventh highest selling game of ALL TIME. It's only been out two months. Basically, the gist of the game is 100 players start out in an airplane. You fly over an island with a parachute and nothing else. Once you and your team land, you scavenge houses and buildings for weapons and armor. The last person standing wins. It's basically like the Hunger Games with a team option. Pretty cool, huh? So why am I telling you this? Well, the Auto Solutions crew is big on team building. But, with our growing families, it's hard to coordinate company functions that accommodate everyone's busy schedules. Here is where this game - PUBG - comes in. A few of the guys here started playing it online and told the other guys at work about it. Okay cool, they said. Then they tried it. Then their wives played a few rounds. Next thing you know half our staff are linking up and dominating together, as a team. Are video games silly? Probably. Are they a waste of time? Debatable. But for a few minutes, we have an escape from reality and an opportunity to bond a little, strengthening our friendships, carrying over our trust in each other back into the business world.

Our Sales Staff

Car Salesmen typically have a bad reputation. That's why we prefer our staff to have zero experience in this industry prior to hiring. We hire based on communication skill, knowledge, customer service, and integrity. You may not always encounter the smoothest-talker at Auto Solutions, but you will deal with a real person who is happy to speak with you. And most of our staff are pretty funny too. We all got a kick out of this picture, hope you get a laugh out of it yourself!

Auto Solutions Participates in Alumni Football Gam

Alumni Football USA came to Maryville, TN this year to host a football game between county high school rivals Heritage and William Blount. There was, however, one big twist: the game was to be played by alumni of each school. Full contact, full pads, slobberknockin' football. Auto Solutions being host to alumnus of the schools, you can imagine the trash talking as soon as the game was confirmed. Three members of our team elected to play - Adam suited up at Fullback and Tight End for William Blount, while Bryan and Josh lined up at Quarterback and Wide Receiver for Heritage, respectively. William Blount won the game 22-8 and all came home unscathed, albeit immobile. They say the soreness is unbearable. While these guys aren't necessarily spring chickens (all around 30 years of age) they were among the average age of participants. Heritage had a player from the class of 1979! And two more played from the class of '86. Rumor has it a rematch is in the works for next year. In the meantime, Adam can walk around the office with his head held high knowing he was the captain of the winning team, as well as being voted MVP! Below is a picture of them. Congratulations men!

Why You Should Buy a Used Car

Purchasing a car can be quite the stressful process. New or used, you’re committing to drive after drive in the same vehicle for quite some time, so it’s important to feel comfortable with the one you leave the lot with. While a brand new vehicle may sound nice, the amount of depreciation that will take place over a relatively short amount of time may lead you to think otherwise. In this infographic, we’ll walk you through data we’ve gathered regarding the difference in equity lost between new and used vehicles over time. Not only that, but we will also give you the rundown on how purchasing used instead of new can affect the insurance and fees associated with your vehicle.
