Get the Best Value for a Trade-In When You Shop at your RT 22 Toyota Dealership

One of the scariest parts of buying a new or pre-owned car is trying to get the most money you can for your trade-in. The fear stems from the unknown. You're on the dealer's turf, and you might think that you're at their mercy, and they are just looking to deduct the value of the car, so that you have to pay more. In some instances, you might be right, but when you come up to Rt.22 for a Toyota, Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge, you don't have to worry. Our salesmen want to give you the most they can for your trade-in. However, if you're concerned about ways you can guarantee a fair return, here are some things to keep in mind:

Give your car an uplift: Sometimes, appearance is everything, and a car that is detailed and cleaned could raise the offer price significantly. A car that looks maintained gives the dealer the reassurance that the car was well taken care of and won't be as likely to break down or require any hidden repairs. And it's rather cheap as well. You can easily get professional detailing service for as little as a hundred dollars.

Know your car's value: The first step of getting an idea of how much your car would be worth is to check out the blue book value. Kelley and other online price quote services will calculate the car's value with respect to condition, mileage, features and maintenance history. Another good idea is to look at Craigslist or the classifieds in your area to see what prices owners are asking for similar cars to your own. By knowing these numbers, you'll be better able to negotiate.

 • Don't worry about repairs: A dealership can often get repairs made on a car much cheaper than you can as a consumer. Although you might get more value for your trade-in if you do make these repairs, it's highly unlikely that you'll be able to offset the costs that it took to repair the car. It's better to be upfront with needed repairs and go from there.

These are just some ways you can make the most money on your trade-in. Another important thing not mentioned above is that you need to do your research on dealerships. When you come to the Autoland in Springfield, NJ, you'll find friendly staff people who will provide a fair price on your trade-in. See you there soon!

Three Tips For Parents Of Teen Drivers In New Jersey

New Jersey has a population of over 8 million people and is the most densely populated state in America, and if you want to get around in the Garden State you’re going to need to learn how to operate a vehicle. New Jersey has millions of drivers on its roads, and this year thousands more will join their ranks. As a parent of an older teen you know that they’re going to have their license soon, and you most likely aren’t looking forward to it. Allowing your teen to drive on their own involves giving them a lot of responsibility and trusting that they’ll be able to safely operate a vehicle. If you’re going to have a new licensed driver in your family soon, consider following these tips so that you can feel safe when they’re behind the wheel.

 Lead by example

 It’s very difficult to teach your teen that it’s dangerous to text and drive when they see you texting behind the wheel. If you want your teen to be a safe driver, you need to set a good example for them by driving the way you’d want them to drive. That means staying off of your phone, always using your turn signal, and concentrating on the road and nothing else. Actions speak a lot louder than words, and your good example shows them that safe driving is important.  

Make sure they know what to do in different situations

If your teen is going to be driving in New Jersey, they’re going to need to know how to safely and defensively drive in heavy traffic, rain, sleet, snow, and virtually any driving condition you can think of. If you live near New York City or Philadelphia, make sure that they can handle driving in urban areas (and that they remember that you can only turn right on red in the state). Take them out driving during a light shower or after it rains so that you can see how the handle their car on wet roads.

Go used instead of new

Many parents that can afford to provide their teens with a car will go used instead of new. There are plenty of affordable used cars in our New Jersey lots and a used car would be much better for your budget than a new one. The cost to insure a brand new car for a brand new driver is going to be very high, but insuring a used car to a new driver wouldn’t be as expensive.
