about used car
Most new car sales now in
volve the trading-in of a
buyer's used car. More and
more people are asking:
"Why should my used car
seem to have several val
ues? .... Why should deal
ers, in different makes of
cars offer me allowances
differing materially? ....
Does the largest allowance
offered mean the best deal
Here are basic facts:
1 Your used car has seemingly
different values because com
petitive dealers are bidding to sell
you a new car.
2 Your used car has only one
fundamental basis of value:
what the dealer who accepts it in
trade can get for it in the used car
3 The largest trade-in allowance
which is offered on your used
car is not necessarily the best deal
for you. Sometimes1 it is; but some
times it is not.
4 An excessive allowance may
mean that you are paying an
excessive price for the new car in
comparison with its real value.
5 Judge the merits of the new
car in comparison with its
price, including all delivery and
finance charges. Then weigh any
difference in allowance offered on
your used car.
WHEN YOU are ready to trade
in your present car, remem-;
ber that after all you are making a
purchase and not a sale. You are
buying a new car and simply
applying your present car as a
credit toward the purchase price
of a new car.
