Car myths exposed: Selling your vehicle

Myth: AutoNation will only buy my vehicle if I buy one of theirs.

False. At every AutoNation location, we’ll buy your car and you are not obligated to buy one of ours. That’s right; you don’t have to buy a car from us when you sell your car to one of our stores.

But it seems this is not the only myth surrounding the process of selling your vehicle. So to clear the air, we’ll go over how AutoNation appraises and buys your vehicle.

AutoNation not only sells the most new and used cars in America, we also buy the most vehicles. We buy all cars regardless of mileage, condition, age or manufacturer.

We also give you more ways to appraise your vehicle’s actual worth. Right now, you can visit any one of our over 200 locations across the country and have your vehicle appraised by a trained vehicle appraiser. You don’t even need to schedule an appointment. Our vehicle appraisers go through an extensive training process to fully understand and properly perform your appraisal. We even offer come-along appraisals, where you can watch your vehicle go through the evaluation process.

Plus, AutoNation offers free vehicle appraisals on our websites. In just a few short clicks, you’ll have a guaranteed value for your vehicle. Once our appraisers verify your vehicle’s information, we’ll honor your online appraisal in any of our showrooms.

Since this is a big decision, every trade appraisal is valid for seven days or 500 miles, whichever comes first. We don’t want you to feel pressured to sell your vehicle. Take your time and think about the offer. If it makes sense to you and your family, we’ll be ready to cut you a check.

If you’re ready to sell your vehicle to AutoNation, make sure to bring the following items:

  • Current photo identification
  • Vehicle registration
  • Keys and remotes
  • Owner’s manuals
  • Vehicle’s title or loan pay-off information

If you still owe money on your vehicle, don’t worry. AutoNation will still buy it. A store associate can help explain that process.

Hopefully, this answered any questions or cleared up any misconceptions about selling your vehicle to AutoNation. However, if you are still confused about something, feel free to leave a comment or email us directly and we’ll answer your questions.
