Benefits of trading in
Save time and effort

Selling your car privately can be a hassle. You have to do things like run classified ads, field phone calls and have strangers come to your house for test drives. Then of course, you’ll have to negotiate.

You also need to ensure your car is maintained and all parts are working. This is a worry and expense on your part, including fixing brakes, tires and other pricey items. Trading in with us avoids all these inconveniences.

Lower how much you need to finance

When you trade in your vehicle, AutoNation will be essentially purchasing your car from you. We will apply the purchase amount to the total price of the vehicle you want to purchase. This means that you could significantly lower monthly payments for a financed vehicle

Save on taxes

When you trade in your vehicle when purchasing another, you only pay sales tax on the difference between the trade in value and the price of the new car - that means more money for you!
