How Does Selling Your Car to a Dealership Work? 

So, how does selling your car to a dealership work? At Sterling Acura of Austin we make it easier than ever to value your current ride and get you behind the wheel of another that elevates your capabilities on Buda roads. Follow these steps on how to sell a car at a dealership below:

  • Clean Up Your Car: Having your car washed, detailed, and replacing small parts like windshield wipers or floor mats is a great way to increase the value of your vehicle before you bring it to the dealership. 
  • Write Down the Benefits Of Your Car: Having a detailed history of the maintenance record of your vehicle, a list of its additional features, and a list of its accessories like extra key fobs or bike mounts will increase the value of your vehicle and make it more appealing to dealerships. 
  • Have Your Car’s Title on Hand: Having your vehicle’s title ready when you sell it will save time on the dealer’s end and get you your offer faster. 
  • Research Your Car’s Value: Use tools from Cars.com, Kelley Blue Book, or your local dealership to find the trade-in value of your car. You can use this number to negotiate your price or get an approximate value for what the dealer is willing to buy your car for.

What to Expect When You Sell Us Your Car

Before you sell us your car at Sterling Acura of Austin here are some other things you’ll want to be sure to have on your list before the exchange: 

  • Make an Appointment: While you can walk into a dealership and sell your car, it’s best to make an appointment so the dealer knows to expect you and can have the proper documents ready. 
  • Used Car Manager: Most dealerships will direct you to a Used Car Manager or a salesperson to handle the sale. They’ll collect your information, then run a vehicle history report on your car. 
  • Inspection: In some cases, the Used Car Manager will inspect your vehicle, or they’ll have it taken to their service center for an inspection of its quality and mechanical condition. 
  • Consider the Offer: Based on what the dealership offers you, you can accept the offer or go to another dealership to see if you can get a better offer.

  • Lower Your New Car Price: Using your vehicle as a trade-in allows you to apply your current vehicle’s value towards your new car. This allows you to offset the price of your new vehicle or significantly lower your monthly payments. 
  • Save on Your Taxes: When you trade in your current vehicle and purchase another vehicle from Sterling Acura of Austin, you only pay the sales tax on the difference between the trade-in value and the cost of your new car.
