Should You Trade In Your Car?
Why Trade In Your Subaru
Before you purchase a new car, it’s a good idea to evaluate the trade-in value. Eventually, you’ll want to trade in your used car for a new one, and you’re better off investing in one with a high resale value, like all Subaru models. Over the years, Subaru vehicles have proven to retain their value, making them a good choice to buy new, so you get more money when you’re ready to replace them (hopefully with another Subaru).
Subaru of North Tampa near Lake Magdalene features the latest collection of new Subaru models, and we proudly maintain a large inventory of high-quality used Subaru models. Since Subaru models hold their value better than any other brand, you’re certain to get a good trade-in value - even if you still owe money on it.
When Should You Trade In Your Car
Due to continued supply chain issues, used cars continue to hold their value. Since Subaru cars have well-built engines, off-road all-wheel-drive capabilities, and plenty of standard safety features, they continue to hold their value. Because of their reliability and durability, 96% of Subaru models sold in the last ten years are still on the road, making Subaru trade-in values higher than other car makes and models.
Whether you are trading in a Subaru or another make and model, the best time to trade it in is when a car dealership is willing to pay you more than you owe. When trading in your vehicle, you should explore the values on respected websites like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds. They will give you a fair estimation of your car’s worth based on the model year, mileage, condition, and features.
Because Subaru and other car makers aren’t manufacturing as many new cars, used car prices are higher, and so are trade-in values. In many instances, used car prices aren’t much lower than new car prices.
Benefits Of Trading Your Car At A Dealership
Subaru owners get an added benefit when they trade their vehicles at a Subaru dealership like Subaru of North Tampa in Tampa, Florida. The automaker offers the Subaru Guaranteed Trade-In Program (GTP) for Subaru owners whose vehicles meet the mileage and condition criteria. The program gives Subaru owners an extra incentive to trade in their vehicles at a Subaru dealership, even if they have negative equity when they want to sell or trade. This program is not available when selling a car to a private party or another automaker’s dealership.
