Now is the Best Time to Sell Your Car to Patrick Hyundai

Now is the best time to sell your car to Patrick Hyundai. Used cars are at a premium and currently at their highest values. Whether you’re looking to trade in your current vehicle or sell it outright, now is the time.

“Values are still at an all-time high for people looking to trade in their vehicle and purchase a new one,” said Christian Manzo Sr., Director of Sales for the Patrick Dealer Group. “With the Patrick Dealer Group, not only are we in need of high-demand pre-owned vehicles but we pay top dollar for them. We also provide a level of service with our Patrick Promise Program and our people which is unmatched in the Chicagoland area for over 117 years.”

Getting top dollar for your car is a great reason to sell your car to Patrick Hyundai, but it’s not the only one. Let’s go through some of the other reasons why now is the best time to sell your car, as well as some of the options you have in getting a new one.

Here Comes the Winter Weather

If your current vehicle is in need of any repairs it’s best to sell now and get into something newer and safer before the wrath of winter sets upon us. Navigating through rough weather on the extremely congested streets and highways of the Chicago area is always easier and safer in a vehicle that is newer and doesn’t have any issues like needing new brakes or tires.

Repairs Can Be Overwhelming

An older car is more likely to break down and repairs aren’t cheap. They cost a lot of money — but also a lot of time. An unexpected November or December repair could also really put a damper on your holiday season. Selling your current vehicle to Patrick and letting us help you get into something new eliminates that worry. If you purchase a new or certified pre-owned vehicle from Patrick, you will have a car under warranty with one fixed payment and no surprises.

More Miles = More Repairs and Less Value

It’s no secret that the longer we drive our cars the less valuable they become. More miles usually mean more repairs will be needed in the near future. If your car has approximately 50,000 miles or more, your vehicle is likely in need of these repairs and replacements:

  • New Tires
  • New brakes: rotors and pads
  • New battery
  • New air and fuel filters
  • Transmission fluid change
  • New spark plugs

You can avoid those repairs by selling your car and getting something new or newer.

Lower Your Payment and APR

While this won’t apply to all current car owners, many will be able to obtain a better APR than they have on their current car note. It’s also possible to get into a new or newer car and still have a lower monthly payment. Having a newer car with a lower APR and/or lower payment is a massive win.
