When is the Best Time to Trade-In Your Car?

Porsche of New Orleans takes pride in removing the hassle of trading in your car. Plus, we’ll give you top dollar! Currently, there is a shortage of good used cars. But when is the best time to sell your car? The prices of pre-owned cars tend to be a bit higher in the spring because that’s when many people get their tax returns. Here’s how to know when to trade in your car and buy a new one.

  1. Do some research to determine the value of your current car by using the Porsche of New Orleans value your trade tool or by using Kelly Blue Book.
  2. Take your car to your favorite Kenner neighborhood mechanic and ask how much they think it might cost to maintain it during the next year.
  3. Remember, your car’s value continues to go down over time, so if you think the funds you’d spend on service and repairs would be better spent on a down payment for your next car, then buy a car now!

Holding on to your aging car is only wise if you don’t have to spend too much money on repairs. If your car is in good shape, holding onto it a little longer may help you save up for a larger down payment, which ultimately means lower monthly payments. Plus, loan interest rates are low, but the Feds are about to increase them, so why wait?
