How Do You Trade in a Car?
After you’ve received your trade-in estimate, it’s time for an appraisal of your vehicle! Our Elizabeth City dealership can take care of this step for you. We’ll examine the condition of your car and make sure it’s a good fit for our used car inventory.
Once we’ve examined your car, you’re just a few steps away from finalizing the sale! We pride ourselves on offering the fairest possible offer on trade-in vehicles, aiming to make the trade-in process transparent and simple. In fact, there are a couple of major advantages to selling your car to a dealership, including:
You can haggle at a dealership. We encourage our customers to always do their own research to make sure they’re getting the most reasonable trade-in offers.
Can you trade in a car you still owe on? You can with a dealership. If you’re upside down on your car loan, you can consolidate what’s owed on your current car with the price of your new ride.
Value Your Trade-In: FAQs
Q: Can you trade in a financed car?
A: Yes, you can. If you have positive equity on the car (as in it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in it’s worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually.
Q: How soon can you trade in a financed car?
A: There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity.
Q: What does it mean to be “upside down” on a car loan?
A: Being “upside down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity.
Q: Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car?
A: If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car and own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do what you’d like with it.
