Getting the Best Trade-In Value

If you’ve never traded in a vehicle before, you may be unsure about the next steps. Don’t worry – we’re here to guide you through the process. Once you have your trade-in value, you can explore our extensive inventory of new and used vehicles online to find your ideal car. If the trade-in value doesn’t cover the cost of your new vehicle, our financing department can assist you in securing a loan to cover the remaining amount.

Estimate Your Trade Value

Use the following steps to get the value of your current model and begin your trade-in process: 

  • Using our trade valuation tool, input the year, make, and model of your vehicle.
  • You’ll be asked for the approximate mileage and the condition of your vehicle (New, Fair, etc.) 
  • After you input your vehicle’s information, you’ll be prompted to input the VIN number. 
  • You’ll receive the approximate value of your current vehicle. You can print a copy of this page if you’d like – but it’s instantly forwarded to our finance department. 
  • We’ll contact you with the next steps!          

Can I Trade In a Vehicle I Still Owe On? 

Trading in a car with an outstanding loan balance can seem complicated, but our experienced finance team can provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision. When you’re ready to trade in your car, simply bring it to Cadillac Of South San Francisco along with the title, auto loan payoff information, registration, and key. We’ll inspect your vehicle and finalize the trade-in amount, making the process smooth and hassle-free.

Things to Keep In Mind

One of the key benefits of trading in your car is the immediate reduction in what you owe on your next vehicle. By putting the trade-in amount towards your new car, you can significantly lower the down payment, resulting in a lower balance to repay in the future. Trading in your car is a convenient and efficient way to upgrade to a new vehicle while minimizing your financial obligations. We’ll leave you with these tips regarding your trade-in value: 

  • Before bringing your vehicle in, make sure it’s clean, and any minor repairs are handled. You can get a substantially higher amount for your vehicle after a thorough, detailed cleaning, and things like the interior trim are all intact. 
  • Don’t forget to bring your keys, VIN, and pay-off information if you’re still paying for your vehicle. 
  • It doesn’t hurt to bring a detailed log of any maintenance or repairs.
