Got a trade but don’t know what to fix? We’ve got a handy guide waiting for you.

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.
