Q: What Determines My Car’s Trade-In Value?

A: There are many things that factor into estimating a vehicle’s worth, some of which play larger roles in the process than others. You can get a fair estimate on your car’s worth by providing some basic information:

  • Make/Model: The manufacturer of your vehicle and the specific model tell the most about your car, truck, or SUV. If it is a model that is particularly sought after or rare, it will bring in more potential buyers, increasing its value.
  • Mileage: The number on the odometer shows the distance the car has been driven. Typically, lower mileage equals a higher trade credit, as it means the next driver has more driving they can do.
  • Model Year: The age of the vehicle is the final main factor in the base estimation of your car’s value. Just like with mileage, less means more. Newer vehicles have more adventures ahead of them in their future, making them more appealing.

Various other aspects of the vehicle will affect its evaluation as well, such as the mechanical condition, appearance, and accident history.

Q: Can I Trade In a Financed Car?

A: Yes! If your car is financed, there is a chance that you have equity in the vehicle that outweighs the remaining loan balance. If your vehicle is valued at a higher amount than you have left to pay on it, you can trade it in and use that difference toward the cost of your next car.

Q: How Should I Get Started?

A: The easiest way to begin the trade process is with our handy online tool. The Value Your Trade tool will ask you to input some basic information that will give us a general picture of your car. That online estimation gives you a starting point from which you can prepare for your trade.

Q: How Can I Increase My Car’s Trade-In Value?

A: Getting your car ready for sale means making it more appealing to potential buyers. Taking it to a car detailer will give it that shiny like-new appearance inside and out. A clean car will draw more eyes toward it. You should also have routine maintenance performed as well so that the car is up to date on oil changes, tire rotations, and more, readying it for the next driver.
