Car Value 101.

Here are some quick tips to help you maximize the value of your vehicle.

Keep your vehicle clean.Plus

As a general rule, your vehicle is worth more when it is sparkling clean — inside and out.

Park your car inside.Plus

Protect your vehicle from the elements, including harsh sunlight and extreme temperatures.

Make vehicle repairs.Plus

If you’ve been putting off fixing things like a broken taillight, windshield cracks, fender dents, or “that weird rumbling sound,” consider making those kind of repairs before selling.

Perform routine maintenance.Plus

Regular oil and filter changes, replacing worn brakes, new tires and other day-to-day maintenance will help you get the most for your vehicle when selling.

Keep service documentation.Plus

When you have your vehicle serviced or tires replaced, keep the receipts!
