Trade-in Allowance

What is a trade-in allowance?

Trade-in Allowance Definition: A trade-in allowance is an amount that a dealer will reduce the cost of purchasing a new or pre-owned car if you trade in your old model. This exchange results in a credit you can put towards a new purchase, which decreases the overall cost.

This benefit can allow customers to add accessories and features they may not usually afford without the trade-in option. It’s a standard way to cash in on an older vehicle as an affordable means to upgrade to a newer model, with the option of paying the difference or reduced price in full or choosing an inexpensive financing option. Trade-ins are typically offered as a promotion.
