Our team will examine your car’s condition both inside and out, as well as take into consideration our used vehicle inventory to determine whether we can sell your vehicle. You’ll want to bring along your trade-in estimate for our reference. You can also bring estimates you’ve gotten elsewhere.

Negotiate or Accept a Trade-In Offer

Once the appraisal is complete, you can either accept the offer outright or negotiate. This straightforward process is just one of the many benefits to trading in a car at a dealership. A few other advantages include:

  • Unlike many Morton, PA-area used-car retailers, you can negotiate with a dealership like Springfield Mitsubishi. The first offer you’re given isn’t necessarily set in stone, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done.
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, a dealership can help you do that.

After an offer is accepted, you can either finalize the trade for cash or put the vehicle’s value toward buying a new car.
