Here at Bakersfield Mitsubishi, we aim to create a vehicle-buying process that is simple and efficient for each and every one of our customers. To give you the best possible experience, we encourage you to trade in your old vehicle when purchasing your new one. Not only is it easy to do, but it also can decrease the overall cost of a new vehicle.
Selling an old vehicle on your own can be a hassle. If you sell it to a dealer other than the one you are purchasing from, you are spending more time and effort selling your vehicle than you have to. If you choose to sell it to a third party, you exert even more energy hunting down buyers on your own and going through the sales process without the support of auto industry experts, like the ones here at Bakersfield Mitsubishi. When you trade in, you can simply arrive at the dealership in your old vehicle, go through the easy process explained below and drive home in your new vehicle.
Once you’ve decided that you would like to trade in your old vehicle, inform your sales representative. From there, the staff will take on the brunt of the work. An appraiser will test-drive and inspect your old vehicle to assess its value. Even if you think your vehicle is a piece of junk, there’s a good chance it is still worth money. When the value is determined, the dealer will make you an offer on the vehicle. If you choose to accept the offer, you will sign the title of your old vehicle over to the dealership. Then, the offer amount will be detracted from the total cost of your new vehicle. In your new vehicle, you can drive off the lot happy about your purchase and not worried about your old vehicle.
If you’d like to trade in your old vehicle for a new one, we invite you to do so at Bakersfield Mitsubishi. Come in, take a test drive and see all that we have to offer.
