How To Boost Your Car’s Trade-In Value


At Sussman Acura, we want to help make sure you get the best deal possible on whichever car you want to commute around Jenkintown, Abington, Lower Southampton Township, and Philadelphia, PA, in.

One way we do that is by giving you the option to trade in your car so you can save even more on your new ride. There are also ways you can ensure you are getting the most value out of your car when trading it in, which our Sussman Acura team shares with you below.


Do Your Homework

Before you do anything, you’ll want to first do some research to have a baseline for your car’s trade-in value. That way, you can figure out which aspects to focus on when working on boosting its value. Luckily, you can quickly get a great sense of your car’s worth right on our website.

Just use our online Value Your Trade tool to get started. Using this tool, you’ll need to provide some basic information about your car, including:

  • Make and model
  • Trim Level
  • Model Year
  • Mileage

Once you fill out the necessary sections, you will be able to see an estimated Blue Book® value for your car, which will give you a great idea of what you can earn by trading in your vehicle.

Take Care of All the Services It Needs

To make sure the offer you ultimately end up getting for your trade-in is as high as possible, you will want to ensure your car performs at its best. That is why it is crucial to have any services and repairs your vehicle may need taken care of before you go through the trade-in process.

Whether it’s a routine service or a system that needs to be repaired in your vehicle, our trained technicians can help you out. When you bring your car by our service center, they can:

  • Change any old fluids.
  • Replace worn parts.
  • Fix any dents or dings.
  • Inspect various systems.

Having these services completed as well as any other necessary maintenance items, can help improve your vehicle’s overall value, so you can get the best deal possible for your trade-in.

Have Your Car Looking Its Best

Along with having any dents, dings, and scratches repaired, you will also want the exterior of your car washed. Having your car shining when you are looking to trade it in provide a great first impression of its overall condition.

It’s not just important to have the exterior looking its best either. You will want to have the interior completely cleaned as well. When cleaning the inside of your car, make sure to:

  • Vacuum the entire interior.
  • Remove any stains.
  • Wash the windows.
  • Check each cabin feature.

If you find any damages to the interior while you are inspecting the various cabin features, whether the upholstery needs to be fixed or the power windows don’t operate properly, you will want to have these issues fixed too so you can make sure you get the highest possible offer for your trade-in.
