How to Trade-In My Car

If this is the first time you’ll be trading in a vehicle, you’ll find that it’s easy to sell your car. Just follow these steps:

  • After following the prompts with our trade-in calculator up above and getting an estimate of your trade-in car’s value, you can check out our inventory if you haven’t yet decided on your next model.
  • Often, a trade-in car won’t cover the full value of the new vehicle. If you’d like to learn more about loan options to help pay for the new vehicle at a steady pace, our finance center can help you explore what’s available.
  • Does your trade-in car have a remaining auto loan balance? Often this situation is not as tricky as it may seem. Again, our finance team can help you learn about what your options are, so you can make a well-informed decision as to whether or not it’s worth moving forward.
  • When you’re ready to trade-in your old car and get behind the wheel of a new model, you’ll of course need to bring the vehicle to Performance Mercedes-Benz, along with the car title, auto loan payoff information, registration, and the key(s). We will carry out an inspection of your vehicle and provide a final trade-in offer.

Are There Benefits to a Trade-In?

Yes, there are many benefits Pelham shoppers can enjoy when they trade-in their car! It’s one of the surest ways to reduce what you’ll owe on your new car. No matter if you plan to lease or buy, the credit you get when you sell your car can be used toward your down payment, meaning you’ll have a lower total balance to be paid off in the coming years. You can also use your larger down payment to leverage for less interest.

Do I Need to Fix My Car Before I Trade It In?

If you’re wondering if you can trade in a car that needs repairs, it depends. You’ll need to evaluate how much value your car is likely to lose if you leave that repair up to us, and if that loss is significant enough for you to take care of it before you sell your car to us. In general, if the car needs a major repair, leave it to us. Taking care of little things like oil replacement, spark plug replacement, and tire changes, yourself is likely cost-effective. So, yes—you can trade in a car that needs repairs, but if you’re you’re still asking yourself, “Do I need to fix my car before I trade it in?”, just give us a call for an expert opinion. We’re here to show you how to trade in your car every step of the way.
