Re: Is it better to trade in or sell privately?
It depends greatly on the condition and age of your car. At a certain point the trade in values just become a joke. I sold my old car for triple what they offered in trade in. The kicker? The ad was up for 1 day and it sold to the very first person that came to look at it the next day.
Fact is trade ins don't really care about what kind of shape your car is in.
