When you trade in your used car, you increase your down payment. This makes you more attractive to lenders and increases your financing options.

The value of your trade-in gets subtracted from the amount of money you need to finance — this means lower monthly payments for you.

We know how valuable trade-ins can be when you're buying a new car. That's why we're willing to accept yours even if you still owe money it.

The ugly truth about private car sales

There are a lot of hidden obstacles to avoid when selling on your own.

  • You'll have to keep shelling out for car insurance, taxes, and loan payments until you finally find someone to buy your car.

  • What's your time worth? You'll be dealing with no-shows and less-than-serious buyers when you could be doing other things.

  • Ka-ching! You'll have to pay to fix any mechanical and cosmetic issues — and you may not recoup that money.

  • You have no protection. What happens when you think the car is sold and someone backs out of a deal at the last second?

  • Maybe you'll sell the car right away. But maybe it'll take weeks or even months. Can you afford to wait that long?

  • Are you a natural salesperson? If you want to sell your car for top dollar, you'll need to "talk the talk" with potential buyers.

  • Going for test drives with complete strangers can be a little scary. And letting them drive alone may be even riskier.

  • Even if you do all the homework and take all the right steps, there's no guarantee you'll get the price you want.
