Parting with a car that’s been with you through thick and thin can be difficult. Knowing its value, and how much its sale might offset the cost of upgrading to a better vehicle, could make the idea of selling it a bit more palatable.
If you’re not finding the ideal pre-owned vehicle near you, you might be tempted to expand your search to neighboring communities.

The organization has served 40,000 meals as of June 2022, and we wanted to help with a special gift.
We were fortunate to come together with FOX to #PayItForward by supporting Hustler Guild. Hustlers Guild is an organization that is changing the lives of kids in the District with their "Beyond the Block" program. The program seeks to give underserved kids the opportunity to explore different careers and dreams beyond their neighborhoods. They connect the kids with mentors and take them to places they may not traditionally visit.
