Should I Fix My Car Before I Sell It?

The better condition your used car, truck or SUV is in – the better price you will get for it when you decide to sell and regular maintenance can help. Minor repairs and maintenance – like changing the oil – can help add to the sale price of your vehicle, but it is important to remember that repairs that cost too much will subtract from the money you get back in the end.
