The greatness is not defined by the price. That's my personal mantra, but what does this mean? It means that a vehicle doesn't have to be expensive to be great. Your friends may judge what you buy by what you paid for it. My advise: Don't tell them what you spend on ANYTHING! It's really none of their business!

Look around the car business: it seems to me that car dealerships are getting fancier and fancier! They have grand showrooms, sprawling lots on prime real estate, and army sized staffs. Someone has to pay for all that. If you buy from them, YOU WILL! Don't kid yourself: these corporate run megastores pass there expenses on to their customers, one way or another.

Matt Hagen Motors is a small operation with very low overhead... We can pass the savings on to you and give you a better deal!

While many things have gotten more expensive lately, most folk's incomes have remained the same. Our vehicles are in a price range that the hard working folks of Eastern North Carolina can afford.

We will strive to stock vehicles that are $20,000 or less that have lots of life left in them! Some of our vehicles will exceed this, but the vast majority of what we stock will be in this range. Why 20k? In my 25+ years in the car business, I have found that most folks want to either be able to pay cash for a used car, or (when financing is necessary) they want monthly payments in the $300-$399 price range MAX. With approved credit, a $20,000 Loan meets this criteria for most customers.

MATT HAGEN MOTORS PRICES ARE THE BEST! Matt will never price a vehicle over the current  market value. He consults the NADA Guide, Kelly Blue Book, and the CARFAX Vehicle Value before pricing his vehicles for sale.

Matt abides by a code of ethics instilled in him by his parents: if he tells you he is going to do something, you can rest assured he will. 

Great Cars! Low Overhead=Low Prices

Our Confidence in What We Sell

Vehicles in an Affordable Price Range

Please call before you come! Due to the nature of the car business, we cannot hold a vehicle for you without a deposit (with or without an appointment). If you will call 252-646-4420 before you leave to come to Matt Hagen Motors (if the vehicle is still available when you call), I will hold the vehicle for you until you get here. IF YOU DON'T CALL ME BEFORE YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY HERE, I CANNOT EXTEND YOU THIS COURTESY AND/OR GUARANTEE THE AVAILABILITY OF INVENTORY WHEN YOU GET HERE. I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO GET HERE ONLY TO FIND OUT THE VEHICLE THEY WANT IS GONE.

Happy Customers, Smart Buyers!

If you are looking at a vehicle somewhere and they say that they do not offer warranties, RUN! Warranty companies require their dealers to service their vehicles completely before offering them for sale. If they don't service their vehicles to a warranty company standard before they offer them for sale, you should wonder why.

How about private sellers vehicles?

BUYER BEWARE: Absolutely no guarantees there! They can sell cars that will never pass a state inspection and not tell you! All of MATT HAGEN MOTORS vehicles have passed North Carolina State Safety Inspection.

*Click on the disclosure tab above to learn more about what Matt Hagen Motors offers in warranties. Be sure to talk to Matt about the details before purchasing a vehicle or warranty.

When shopping for a vehicle, ask the seller for a CARFAX history report. If they don't offer you one, call Matt! He will run a CARFAX vehicle history report for you AT NO CHARGE, even on his competitors vehicles! WHY? Matt may not always have the lowest price, but often times if you find a better price, The CARFAX history report will tell you why. Be careful out there!
