Can You Trade In a Financed Car?

Our customers often ask us “how does trading in a financed car work?” or “can you even trade in a financed car at all?” The answer to both questions is yes, but there are some important details you should know if you’re considering upgrading a vehicle you’re still paying off. With that in mind, here’s everything you should know. Read on to learn more about our trade-in process, or simply contact us at Ron Sayer's Chrysler Jeep Dodge with additional questions.

How Does Trading In a Financed Car Work?

There are several different scenarios that can happen when trading in a financed car. These are the most common:

  • Equity Payout: If you owe less on your car than it’s worth, we’ll pay for the value of your loan, and any additional equity will be paid out to you or applied against your new vehicle lease or loan. 
  • Loan Rollover: If you’ve ever heard a dealer in Blackfoot say they’ll pay your loan, no matter the amount, this is what they’re likely referring to. In a nutshell, a loan rollover adds the amount of your old loan to your new vehicle loan or lease. 
  • Trade-In With Negative Equity: Even if you owe more than your car is worth, you can still trade it in. If you do, though, you’ll have to continue making payments on it, in addition to the new lease or loan payments you make.
