When do I Trade My Car in to get the Best Value?

Like the majority of consumer goods, a vehicle will depreciate over time. Two factors that will help to slow this decline are the number of kilometres driven and the amount of wear and tear it accumulates. To maximize your trade-in value, it is best to keep your vehicle in pristine condition and trade it in before it reaches 100,000 km. There are many myths about when a vehicle should be traded-in; however, the Canadian automotive market has been resilient, so the best time is when you are ready!
