You can also estimate your payment online or in-person at our dealership near Fairfield.

Learn The Value of Your Trade-in

The first thing to do when trading in your car is to learn your current vehicle’s approximate value. If you still owe money on your car, you should also find out your loan’s remaining balance. You can start with tools like Kelley Blue Book® Value, or use the simple trade-in valuation tool found right here on our website.

Simply enter in all the information about your vehicle, and once you have your estimate, do a little research to see what other similar models are selling for in your area. Remember, whether you get the approximate value from Kelly Blue Book or a dealership like Jaguar Darien, you’re only dealing with the vehicle’s estimated value at this stage.

Bring Your Car to Jaguar Darien for An Official Appraisal

Still want to know more about how to trade in your car? If you’re going to sell your car at a dealership, you’ll want to drive your current vehicle to Jaguar Darien for an official appraisal. Our helpful team will examine your vehicle’s overall condition to determine whether we can re-sell it. If you’ve been to any other dealerships around Westport for appraisals, make sure you bring their estimates with you for comparison.

Accept or Negotiate a Trade-In Deal

After you have your car appraised, you may be able to negotiate a higher offer. If other dealerships gave you a more competitive price for your trade-in, this is where the bids will work in your favor. Additionally, you’ll want to bring the evidence of your research, showing what similar cars have sold for around Stamford. Once you settle on and accept a final offer, you can then apply it to your next vehicle purchase or request the money in cash.
