How to Trade In a Car

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman


When you decide to trade in your vehicle at a car dealership, such as Daytona Mitsubishi, you can avoid the annoyances of selling a car on your own. Another great benefit is that you can reduce the amount of your down payment on a new Mitsubishi or a pre-owned car. You might be wondering, “How can I get the best offer on my trade-in car?” Our finance team is here to answer your questions. To ensure you get the best possible value from your trade-in offer, follow the steps outlined below! 

Get a Value Estimate on Your Car 

First, you’ll want to determine how much your car is worth. Daytona Mitsubishi makes this part quick and easy with our value your trade-in tool. Simply enter the car’s year, make, and model, as well as your name, email, and phone number. Then, you can add information about the vehicle’s condition, and you’ll get the estimated value of your car. Want to do more research? You can use other online tools, too, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Receive an Appraisal

After you’ve received a trade-in estimate, visit Daytona Mitsubishi to get an appraisal. We’ll inspect your vehicle’s condition, and decide whether we can sell it in our used inventory. Be sure to bring your value estimate with you (as well as any other offers or appraisals you may have received) to your appointment. 

Negotiate or Close the Deal 

Once the appraisal is complete, you can negotiate or accept our offer and close the deal. Overall, the process is simplistic and easy to navigate. Other advantages to trading in your car include the following: 

  • You can negotiate with car dealerships, unlike some other used car sellers. The initial offer you receive isn’t set in stone. 
  • Are you upside down on your car loan? You may be able to consolidate what you owe the price of the new car you want. Dealerships can help you do that. 

After you’ve accepted the offer, you can walk away with the money from the sale, or you can put it toward the purchase of a new or used car.
