How to Trade in Your Car

If you've never traded in a vehicle, there are a few things you're probably wondering. Luckily, we here at the Serra Subaru of Traverse City finance center have answers. Here's how to trade in your car:


  • After you've discovered your trade-in value, you can explore our inventory of new vehicles and used vehicles online to find the perfect fit.

  • If your trade-in doesn't cover the value of your new vehicle, you can turn to the experts at our finance center for help.

  • Trading in a car with a loan balance might seem difficult, but it's usually simpler than you might think. Call our finance experts at (231) 570-8153 if you have questions, or visit us in person!

What are the Benefits of Trading in a Car?

Trading in a car is usually much simpler and faster than trying to sell it yourself to a private party. That's because dealerships like ours have established relationships with other dealers and auction houses. Plus, we take trade-ins all the time, and we have access to the most up-to-date guides for pricing out vehicles fairly and quickly. In sum, it's faster, easier, and less of a hassle to trade in your car than to sell it on your own. The best way to confirm that is to value your trade now!
