Ways to Trade in Your Car

Trading in your car differs depending on how much money you have left on you vehicle loan:

  1. Vehicle Already Paid Off – If you already own the vehicle outright, then the lien has already been lifted on the car and you possess the title. In this case, simply make sure you have the title with you and the trade-in transaction should be fairly straightforward and easy.
  2. Amount Left on Loan Less Than Car Value – If the amount the dealer is purchasing the vehicle for is more than the amount left on the loan, then the dealer will likely pay off the loan for you to lift the lien, and then give you the remainder in cash or to help out with your down payment.
  3. Amount Left on Loan More Than Car Value – If the dealer is buying the car for less than is currently left on the loan, then you will be responsible for making up for the difference in cash in order to lift the lien and complete the transaction.
