Edmunds MyAppraise Trade-In Tool

Time to Trade In Your Vehicle?

Your car is your baby. She was your first ride around town as you showed off to your high school friends who had not quite yet convinced their parents to let them get a vehicle. You've got a tight bond with Sally the sedan, and she's clearly valuable to you - if only sentimentally.

Or maybe you just purchased a vehicle a few years ago, but as your life has changed, you requirements in a vehicle have changed too. You're pretty sure you've kept the SUV in decent shape (minus the time you backed into a shopping cart, but you can barely even tell that's there if you look at it from the right angle).

The Edmunds MyAppraise Trade-In Tool - Check Your Trade-In Value Online

No matter your situation, we understand that you want to make sure you are getting the best value possible when the time comes to trade in your current vehicle. That's why we've placed the Edmunds MyAppraise Trade-In tool on our website. Using this tool, you'll be able to find an accurate representation of the value of your vehicle in four easy steps:

  • First, simply enter your vehicle information. Select your vehicle's make, model, year, and style on the drop-down menu, and then enter your zip code as well.

  • Second, match up your vehicle's colors and options. Click the appropriate color boxes for both the exterior and interior of your vehicle or any other options that may appear for your model.

  • Third, enter your up-to-date mileage reading, and select the level of vehicle condition from five possible options -- from damaged (non-safe running condition) to outstanding (requires no reconditioning).

  • Finally, give us some contact information to receive your estimated appraisal. We'll need your name, phone number, email address, any comments or questions you have for us, and the type of vehicle (including new or used) you're thinking about purchasing. Not settled on a vehicle yet? That's okay. Just choose "any model" as an option.

Get the Best Trade-In Value Possible For Your Vehicle

We understand that your vehicle isn't going to keep that new car smell forever once you drive it off the dealer lot, but if you try to keep it as close to that original condition as possible, it'll help with your trade-in value. There are a few simple ways to keep your car at its best value possible:

  • Take good care of your vehicle. If you are regularly taking care of the small thing in your vehicle, they will most likely not become large problems down the road. Make sure you are regularly getting the oil and filters changed when you are supposed, and you are performing upkeep on the interior and exterior cleaning of the vehicle.

  • Keep any original equipment that came with the vehicle. When the vehicle's original equipment is intact, your trade-in value can increase. Make sure you hang on to that spare set of remote control keys sitting in a drawer somewhere or that cargo net for the trunk hiding in the garage.

  • Save your service and repair records. Paperwork proving that there are still current warranties on your vehicle or that you had repairs made with Ford OEM parts can help prove the value of your vehicle when the time comes to trade it in.
