The next step to boosting your car's value is to repair any problems it has. This will cost you some money upfront, but it will be worth it when you get a higher trade-in value for your car. When the potential buyers see that the car has been well-maintained, they'll likely offer you a higher price.
Take your car to a dealership service center and have them inspect it. They'll tell you what to fix and how much it will cost. Once you have a list of repairs, prioritize them based on how much they'll enhance the value of your car. Make the most important repairs first.
When you're negotiating the purchase of your new car, be sure to do so separately from your trade-in. This will give you more negotiating power and likely get you a better deal on both ends. Remember, the dealer is looking to make money off you, so don't be afraid to haggle!
