At Reed Chrysler, less than half an hour from Sun Prairie, WI, we pride ourselves in offering a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles for every lifestyle. Compact and full-size SUVs from the Jeep Compass to the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Full-size sedans like the Chrysler 300 and 200. And a selection of tough pickup trucks with plenty of towing power from the RAM 1500 stable. Plus, we've got plenty of vehicles that aren't from the Chrysler Family, like the nimble little Ford Escape compact SUV and the heavy-duty Chevy Tahoe SUV. And we've usually got a few surprises around for those looking for a bit more speed and/or luxury, like a Mercedes Benz S-class, or a BMW 5-series.

Is It Still Worth It to Sell Your Used Car Yourself?

There's a lot more into selling a used car or SUV than you might think. It isn't just a matter of putting it out in the front yard or taking out a listing on Craig's List or eBay Motors. Let's take a look at some of the headaches that can come when you decide to take matters into your own hands.

Car Valuation Calculators

Even novice car buyers have often heard of used car valuation calculators like Kelley Blue Book, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), and Consumer Reports. These calculators are good for giving you a general idea of what your vehicle is worth, but it's a little more complicated than that. For starters, they don't take into account the area you live in, gas prices, the climate, and other things that make a used Jeep Cherokee in Tucson, Arizona cost differently than one in Portland, Maine.

Scratch? That'll Just Buff Right Out!

What's the current condition of your vehicle? Are you sure that your version of Very Good is the same as the person interested in buying your car or SUV? What about those little dings and dents that you consider no big deal, or practically unnoticeable? And that barbecue sauce stain that never quite came off the back seat? Well, when you buy a used car, it's not going to look perfect, right? It's things like that that can make it tough to decide how much your vehicle is worth, and how much you should expect to take off if the buyer notices that bitty scratch in the paint or minute tear in the upholstery.

Selling a Lemon?

So far, we've just been talking cosmetics, exterior and interior. What about the mechanics? Are the brakes still tight? The transmission still running smoothly? Any loss of power in the engine, or trouble starting on cold days? Are they things you should take care of yourself? Things you can hide from the buyer? Things you SHOULDN'T hide from the buyer? That's a lot of tough questions. On one hand, you don't want to foot the bill to restore a ride that someone else is going to get most of the benefits out of. On the other, most people feel a moral responsibility to let a buyer know what they're getting. But you also don't want to undersell your vehicle. So many questions!

Our sales team at Reed Chrysler can take the headache out of selling your used car, truck, van, or SUV. We've got such a diverse group of quality used vehicles because we're always on the lookout for new wheels. You can sell it to us outright or use it for a trade-in. We'd be happy to discuss financing if you'd like to use your current vehicle as a down payment for a new or used vehicle.

Having a car for every driver is one of the reasons people come visit us at our dealership, located at 1724 N. Spring Street in Beaver Dam, less than 15 minutes from Columbus, WI. And we're interested in your vehicle today. Check out our website today to schedule an appointment.
