Trade-In FAQs

There are obvious questions folks have when thinking about trading in their car. While many around Nashville, Tifton, and Valdosta, GA, understand the trade-in process can improve the value of their next ride, they have questions about the process, the value of their vehicle, and much more. These are reasonable questions to have and will be addressed in this trade FAQs overview.

At O'Steen Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), we're always eager to accept trade-in vehicles. So, we hope after reading this FAQ overview, you reach out to us or begin your process online!

How Is a Car's Trade-In Value Calculated?

There are certain variables which factor into the overall trade-in value of a vehicle. Some of the most pressing variables include the make, model, model year, mileage, and overall condition. For the most part, how well you've taken care of your model over the years is a factor that's going to play a vital role in the process.

If you've kept up with routine service needs, have avoided any accidents, and haven't made any exaggerated aftermarket customizations to the vehicle, you can likely expect a strong value in return.


Can Any Model be Traded In?

When you're dealing with our dealership, we'll be happy to accept all kinds of trade-ins. So, if you have an old truck, a recent hybrid sedan, crossover, minivan, or really anything else, you can bring it to us, and we'll happily consider it. We strive to make our used car inventory as varied as possible for the benefit of local drivers, so we're always keen to accept trade-ins.

If you want to learn more about your model, you can use our trade-in calculator. Plug in basic insight like the model year or condition and we'll provide you with an idea of what your trade-in value should be.

How Can I Improve the Trade-In Value of My Car?

If you know you'll be trading in your vehicle and want to improve the trade-in value, the best way to start is with a good cleaning. Both the interior and the exterior should be thoroughly washed, scrubbed, and prepared for sale.

Next, take your car to a local service shop and make sure all necessary services are up to date. Even brief services like an oil change should be knocked out before trading in your car. Finally, have a vehicle history or service report ready to be shown. The dealership will want to know the model has received all needed maintenance over the years. And if you've been in any type of accident previously, the vehicle history report should show that all necessary repairs took place in the aftermath of the collision.
