quote:Most haven't, but I've found that those who have an inkling of a clue about how to care for a car are usually favorably impressed with the concept of UOA and will usually be receptive to the data. Many folks believe, and it may be the best choice for them, that UOA is too costly and too much of a hassle to bother with. Let's face it, for most people who carefully change their oil at short OCI, zero, one, ten, or dozens of UOAs aren't going to change the outcome of their ownership experience. That said, though, there are plenty of folks who are extra-involved in their cars, for whatever reasons. It is those people who will be the most impressed with UOA, and in select, private party sales, the good UOAs together with solid maintenance records, they may be willing to pay a premium for a car with such documentation. But I do emphasize the "may" part of that.
Originally posted by Dark Jedi: I think most people would understand or ever heard of an UOA. if it wasnt for me me being in the air force I would of never known about this stuff. I think if you can show the OCI and maintance on the vehicle should be good enough. I would say a UOA is over kill unless selling a exotic or high preformance vehicle. but could never hurt to have. after all never know what the person may ask for. rather have too much info than not enough
