How To Trade In My Car

Hands Holding Car and Money


Trading in your vehicle is one of the most common ways to help finance a new vehicle. By using the estimated value of your current vehicle and using that to finance a new or used vehicle, you’re taking advantage of a method that is somewhat overlooked by people. If you’re interested in knowing your vehicle’s trade-in car value or if you ask yourself, “I want to know how to trade-in my car,” visit our Carlsbad dealership and contact our finance department to speak with an expert for more information. 


Knowing Your Vehicle’s Trade-In Value

There are many ways that you can figure out how much your vehicle is currently worth. If you want the fastest results, use our dealership’s value calculator. This calculator can get you a fair price on your vehicle, and we can accommodate monthly payments with your budget. When our team of experts calculates your vehicle’s value, they do an equation based on the following:

  • Model year
  • Current Mileage
  • Condition of the vehicle
  • And more

Your vehicle’s mileage is especially important because our experts can see how your vehicle was used from the time it came out until the point you brought it to our El Paso-area dealership. This can raise or lower the trade-in car value. 

The Trade-In Car Process

If you ask our finance team, “I don’t know how to trade in my car,” they’ll walk you through the appropriate steps to get the most from your current vehicle. After bringing in your current vehicle to our Las Cruces-area dealership, do the following:

  • Explore our inventory of new and used vehicles online to find your next vehicle, keeping your current vehicle’s value in mind. 
  • If your trade-in doesn’t cover the value of your new vehicle, turn to our financing department to help you cover the due remainder.
  • Trading in a car with a loan balance might seem tricky, but we can help you decide if it’s worth it. Our team of finance experts can go over the basics and help you make an informed decision. 
  • If you’re ready to make a trade, bring your car to Tate Branch Carlsbad Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram along with the title, auto loan payoff information, registration, and key. We’ll inspect the vehicle and finalize the trade-in amount.
