What is the Edmunds Trade in Tool? And How Do You Use It?

When you have found a car you are interested in, your next step will be financing. Beyond the lease and loan deals we can find you, we also encourage drivers to find the value of their current vehicle for a trade-in. To find the accurate market value of your vehicle, we use the trusted Edmunds MyAppraise tool.

How Does the Tool Work?

First, enter the form boxes for the make, model, year, and style of your vehicle. Then, provide the tool with your zip code so it can calculate based on your location. Next, select the exterior and interior colors of your vehicle and check the boxes for any additional equipment we can find on your model--including items like specific Alloy wheels, anti-theft alarm systems, center consoles, heated steering wheels, and more.

After this, the tool will prompt you for information about the mileage of your vehicle in addition to an estimate of its condition: outstanding for a near new vehicle, clean for normal wear, average, rough for several problems, or damaged for major problems (or if it doesn't run properly).

Equipped with all of this information, your contact information, and the vehicle you've been eyeing from our inventory, the tool will generate an instant market value for your vehicle and will email you the findings.

How Do You Redeem Your Deal?

Once you have a market value estimate on your vehicle, you can redeem that as a credit towards your next vehicle with us after you have your car in our service center for an inspection. After we've seen your car, we can confirm its value and send you to our finance team to work through the specifics and combine the value with other deals, specials, incentives, and other savings to help you get into your next car at an affordable price.
