How to Trade in a Car in Houston, TX

Excited Couple Reviewing Trade in Offer with Salesman

Ready to trade in your car at a dealership like Baytown Hyundai? You can avoid the hassle of trying to sell the vehicle yourself. We can help you get the most money possible for your vehicle. You apply the trade-in value to the purchase of a brand new Hyundai car or SUV. If you’re wondering, “How can I get the best offer on my trade-in car?” our finance team is here to help. Read the steps below to ensure that you receive the best used car trade-in offers in the Houston area.

Get Your Used Car Trade-In Value

The first thing you’ll need to do is to determine just how much your car is worth. Baytown Hyundai makes this step quick and easy for Pasadena-area drivers with our convenient Value Your Trade tool. All you have to do is enter your car’s year, make, and model, along with your name, email, and phone number. From there, add information about the vehicle’s condition, and you’ll receive the estimated value of your car. If you would like to do more research, there are other online tools available, such as Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®

Get a Dealer Appraisal

Once you have a trade-in estimate, head to our Hyundai dealership in Baytown to get an appraisal. We will examine your car’s condition, inside and out, and we’ll also take into consideration our current used inventory to determine whether or not we can sell the vehicle. Make sure that you bring your trade-in value estimate (as well as any other trade-in offers you may have received) for our reference.

Negotiate or Close the Trade-In Offer

Once we have completed the appraisal, you can choose to either negotiate or accept our offer outright and close the deal. The whole process is very simple and straightforward, which is one of the benefits of trading in your car at a dealership. Other advantages include:

  • Unlike many Houston-area used-car retailers, you can negotiate with a dealership like Baytown Hyundai. The first offer you’re given isn’t necessarily set in stone, and you can choose to haggle up based on the trade-in value research you’ve done. 
  • If you’re upside down on your auto loan and wish to consolidate what you owe with the price of your new car, a dealership can help you do that. 

Once you have accepted the offer, you can finalize your trade for cash or put the car’s value toward buying a new car.
