We’re considering a new used car this year. It’s definitely a topic of conversation with our Chevy Tahoe having over $130,000 miles. I know it will ride much longer, as many well-kept vehicles do, but we do a lot of driving across country to see family and I want to make sure the family car is safe and is low risk of a break – down. All that being said, I’m not sure if we’ll make the move or not. But if we do, I’ll try to sell it myself verses trading it into a dealer. Hah! We probably won’t get much for it either way. :)
If you’re thinking of trading in your car, think again. This week Yahoo Finance shared reasons why it makes more sense to sell it yourself.
