Can You Trade in a Financed Car?

Happy Man In Car

“I want to trade in my car for a BMW, but I haven’t paid it off, yet. How does trading in a financed car work?”

If you’ve been asking that, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve helped lots of Marietta customers just like you who needed to trade in their financed vehicles. We’ll explain how it works below. What about leasing? Can you trade in a financed car for a lease? We’ll answer that, too.

How Does Trading in a Financed Car Work?

Suppose you still owe $6,000 on your old car, but it is worth $7,000. The dealer will simply take your car, pay off your loan, and apply the $1,000 of equity you have in your old car toward paying for your new car. But, can you trade in a car if you owe more than what it’s worth?

How Does Trading in a Financed Car Work if You Owe More Than it’s Worth?

Maybe you’re thinking, “What if I owe more than what my car is worth? Can I still trade in my car for a BMW?” You can do one of two things: pay off the loan before you buy the new car or get the new lender to agree to pay off your loan and roll the negative equity on to your new loan. So, for example, you owe $7,000 on your old car, but it’s only worth $6,000. You’ll either pay the $1,000 difference to the dealer, or the dealer will add $1,000 to your new loan.

Can You Trade in a Financed Car for a Lease?

Can you trade in a financed car for a lease? Yes, we’ve helped many of our Johns Creek customers to do just that. Normally, the dealer takes over your loan and applies your positive equity to the down payment on the lease. If you owe more than what the car is worth, that negative equity can be added to your lease, increasing your payments.
