What should I have looked at before I trade-in my car?
If you have been keeping up with regular maintenance, there probably isn’t much you’ll need to do. Existing Colonial Toyota customers will be able to get receipts for previous maintenance visits. However, a lot of us are guilty of letting things fall by the wayside. Before you bring your vehicle to us to get appraised, its useful to get caught up on oil changes, coolant flushes and have fluids topped off. Each little defect is going to end up costing owners money on the back end. There is a lot potential for stemming depreciating value that happens to all vehicles.
Other things to consider
It’s perfectly normal for headlights and taillights to burn out over the time someone owns a vehicle. Each of these small defects will take value off the final worth of a trade-in. Our service department can replace those with factory-approved parts. Having your vehicle professionally detailed is also a great way to increase value.
