While buying a new car is an exciting experience, it sometimes brings the stress of figuring out how to pay for everything in a way that fits into your budget.

While any Subaru dealership will do whatever it takes to help make the numbers work, we can say with confidence that including a trade-in will improve things significantly.  

What is a Trade-In?  

Put simply, a trade-in is when a customer decides to sell their vehicle to a dealership. Often, shoppers decide to use the cash they receive to buy a new car, lowering the overall cost of the car and bringing down monthly payments.  

How Trading In Helps You Save  

There are a few different ways that customers can save money by trading in. For example, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  1. An increased down payment. One way to look at a trade-in is as an increased down payment. The more money you’re able to put down up-front, the lower your monthly expenses will ultimately be. 
  2. Less interest. The less money you finance, the less interest you’ll have to pay over the life of your loan. As a bonus, trade-ins can help make your overall loan amount lower. 
  3. Tax advantages. Most states only require sales tax to be paid on the difference between the price of your trade-in and the price of the vehicle you’re buying. You don’t get this tax break if you sell your vehicle yourself. 
  4. Time and advertising. Letting a dealership sell your car means you don’t have to spend any money advertising or deal with unreliable buyers.
