Nov. 17, 2016—CARSTAR is offering a new financing option for its auto repairs through its Car Care One Program, which offers U.S. customers a payment alternative with a new credit card.

CARSTAR noted that a recent survey showed nearly two-thirds of Americans do not have enough in savings to pay for a $500 car repair. Customers are often caught off-guard by a bill for for uncovered expenses (depending on the type of policy they have) or don’t have cash to cover the deductible, situations CARSTAR hopes to remedy through its new credit card.

“While drivers are required to have insurance for their vehicles, sometimes all of the costs are not covered, like towing, additional repairs, detailing or a specific type of replacement part not mandated by their policy,” said Michael Macalus, president of CARSTAR. “Offering a financing option helps our customers through what can be a stressful time.”
