Whether you’re looking for great deals on new or pre-owned Toyota cars, be sure to visit Midtown Toyota. Our Toyota dealers serving Oak Park can find a vehicle to suit any budget. When you are ready to sell your old car for an upgrade, the Chicago Toyota finance department has got the trade-in process covered.

What to Bring With You

We know you are looking forward to driving off the lot in one of our cars, but there are some documents you need before visit our Evanston-serving Toyota dealership to trade in.

The first and most important item is your car title because it signifies that you are the owner, making transferring the ownership of your vehicle nice and simple. If you have completed maintenance on the car in the past year, you need to bring the documentation with you.

Additionally, the owner’s manual should be safely stored inside of the car glove compartment. Lastly, make sure that the car has been thoroughly cleaned out and that any personal belongings have been removed.

Cars to Consider When Trading

Now that your old car is in shape to bring to our Chicago, IL dealership, it is time to decide which new Toyota model works for your lifestyle. Do you picture yourself in a compact car with outstanding fuel efficiency? Or something with a bit more power? The redesigned 2020 Toyota Corolla gets an incredible 38 miles per gallon on the highway and comes with a bundle of active safety features at no extra cost.

If you prefer a car that has more space and keeps you connected while on the go, see what the 2019 Toyota RAV4 has to offer. This compact SUV has been engineered for versatility and is compatible with Apple CarPlayÒ and 69.8 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Toyota RAV4 also comes in two hybrid models for buyers searching for greater fuel efficiency.

Please contact your Chicagoland Toyota dealer if you have any questions about how the trade-in process works or what you need to finance one of the available cars in our inventory. Before you come by, you can even use our online Value Your Trade tool to get an estimate of what your current car is worth. We can’t wait for your visit!
