With the latest models hitting the dealerships, it’s a perfect time to take advantage of those new vehicle specials and pre-owned financing deals. If you’ve been thinking of treating yourself to a true upgrade for your Pasadena commutes and weekend adventures, a trade-in is a great way to lower the cost of your down payment, and consequently, your monthly payments as well. Thanks to the experts in our finance department at Gulfgate Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, we have everything you need to learn how to trade in a car, truck, or SUV.
The first step to your new ride begins with obtaining an understanding of your vehicle’s worth to the dealership near Pearland. When you’re looking for a trade-in value, it can be a little intimidating at first, but with a couple easy online tools, it’s a cinch.
Going through a vehicle estimate service or simply perusing a guide like Kelley Blue Book® Value or Edmunds True Market Value® is a great start. Your estimate will be based on factors like your vehicle’s make, model, and year, as well as its current condition and maintenance history, but It’s also a good idea to take a look at what vehicles like yours have sold for recently near Baytown.
The next step in how to trade in a car is an in-person inspection at your dealership. The final offer depends on a number of things that may be difficult to factor into online. Expect that your final value may come out different from your initial estimate due to the condition of your vehicle. Increase your chance of a great offer with regular service and close attention to its systems.
If you don’t love the trade-in value for your vehicle, you always have the opportunity to try to negotiate the price based on the research you’ve done and other offers you’ve received. This can take some time, but drivers and experts agree that it’s worth the wait for the right car and right deal for your budget. If you do end up accepting the offer, you can use this trade-in value directly toward your next vehicle! All that’s left is to explore your financing options with your local financing center and enjoy your new ride.
