How It Works

Tell us about your car

Curious about car values in the San Diego, Oceanside, and Carlsbad areas? Our easy-to-use online car buying tool is a convenient way to start the process. All we need is the vehicle identification number (VIN) or your license plate number and the state where it's registered with the DMV. Next, input the mileage, color, and answer some questions about the physical condition of your vehicle. That's all it takes to get started.

Get a certified offer in less than 30 minutes

In as few as 30 minutes, BMW of Vista will contact you with a competitive offer. Every offer we issue, whether for a trade-in or a sell my car scenario, reflects the fair market value for San Diego County.

Bring your offer to our BMW store and get paid

Once we inspect your vehicle and verify its condition, you'll receive a guaranteed offer. You have seven days or 500 miles to make a decision. If you decide to take the offer, head to our dealership. BMW of Vista is easy to find. We're just southeast of Ronald Packard Parkway near the intersection of Emerald Drive and Hacienda Drive.


Benefits of Trading In

Save time & hassles

Selling your car privately can be a hassle. After placing a classified ad and listing your car online, you'll field phone calls from potential buyers, some serious, plus a handful of lookie-loos. 


Whether you meet at your home or choose a more public place, like The Forum in Carlsbad, coordinating test drives is time-consuming. And even though you have the records and receipts proving your car has been well-maintained and everything is in working order, you may still have to contend with the private buyer who insists on taking your car to their mechanic. 


Trading your vehicle with us avoids these hassles and headaches.

Reduce the amount you have to finance

When you trade in your vehicle, BMW of Vista essentially purchases your car. We apply that agreed-upon amount toward the purchase of any used car or new vehicle. This helps offset the price of a new car and may even help lower monthly payments. It also reduces the amount of sales tax that's collected.
