When purchasing a new car, truck, or SUV at a dealership in the Staten Island area, you can usually also take advantage of widely available trade-in programs. These offer you the ability to give the dealership your previous vehicle in exchange for a dollar amount off of your down payment or overall capital of your new auto-finance loan. If you’re new to the automotive market, you may be wondering how to trade in a car – not to worry, the team of Union County area locals at Springfield Acura is here to walk you through the important stuff! Keep reading to learn more about how to trade in a car, as well as how to trade in a car that is not paid off yet. Remember to reach out to us online or by phone if you have any questions!

First Thing’s First, Get Your Trade-In’s Value Online

Right off the bat, it’s important to know that when it comes to trading in an old ride, it’s indescribably helpful to have as much information about your vehicle as possible, including its potential trade-in value. Luckily, the team at Springfield Acura is here to help with this task with the introduction of our convenient Trade-In Value Estimate Tool, provided by world-renowned automotive experts website and publisher, Edmunds.com! Using the tool is simple, just fill out some basic information about the vehicle and yourself, and an estimate will be presented to you in no time!

Follow it Up with an In-Person Appraisal

Now that you’ve got some information regarding the potential value of your trade-in, sight unseen, it’s time to get a set of professional eyes to inspect your vehicle for any positives or negatives that could impact the number you were provided online. Typically, the manager in charge of used vehicle intake will inspect the vehicle, with the occasional help of a certified mechanic from our service department.

Conclude by Negotiating or Accepting the Offer

Once our team has completed the appraisal, you’ll have the chance to either negotiate or accept the offer as is. While it’s unlikely that most dealerships will go very far beyond their first offer, this is where the helpfulness of vehicle-information comes in. For example, if you can show that your vehicle has an excellent service history with regular oil changes and other maintenance, it may add to the value of the vehicle – it certainly would in our eyes!

How to Trade-In a Car That Is Not Paid Off

You’re making good progress on learning how trading in a vehicle works! If you’re in a situation where you’d like to trade in your vehicle, but it hasn’t been paid off yet, this is what’s called being ‘upside down’ on the previous auto loan. In this situation, you might be wondering how to trade in a car that is not paid off! The good news is that a dealership like Springfield Acura can help facilitate the trade-in while consolidating the balance of the old loan with the price of your new vehicle.
