How much is my used car worth?
To find out how much your used car is worth visit our value your trade page on the Ackerman Toyota website. The calculator will ask you a series of questions about your vehicle including the make, model, year, and mileage. After you enter the information it will ask you for your contact information and you are all set. A representative from our dealership will contact you with the results.
Things that can affect your car’s value
There are a number of things that can affect the value of your used car. Vehicle damage in the form of an accident or interior wear-and-tear is one of the most common. There is not much that you can do to avoid accidents except to practice safe driving. To protect your car’s interior you can purchase things like bed liners that offer a protective barrier. Other factors that can affect the value of your car are the total mileage, location of sale, and color. Some cars are more popular in different areas, like convertibles in warmer climates, and can net you a larger price there. Having a unique color car can go either way, sometimes it draws in prospective buyers/dealerships and sometimes it can turn them off.
