Yes you can, but it depends on the dealership you trade it to...some of them will be willing to pay it off when they receive it as a trade.

Yes you can trade your car in, but they are only going to give you what the blue book value is. Then the remainder of what you still owe, they will put it towards the new vehicle you get. I know this because I done it.

How do you trade in your car when you are still paying the loan for the car?

The balance you owe on the car that is getting traded in will be added to your new car loan. Example You owe 10,000 for the car you want to trade in They give you 6,000 for trade in your new car costs 20,000 you will either have to pay that 4,000 or they will add it onto your new car loan from your car you traded in.

Can you trade in your new car that you still owe on but have a lot of equity for a significantly cheaper car?

Yes, but your trade in value may or may not cover for the cheaper car so whatever you owe on your current loan will be tacked onto your future loan for the cheaper car you are speaking about.

Can you trade in your car and get the same for it if you still owe on it?

This is tricky. If you trade in your car and get what you owe on it, it is likely you are paying more for your new vehicle (they always mark up the price to equal everything out). If they only give you what the vehicle is worth by blue book value, then they will give you a better deal on the new vehicle. If you want the best deal, then sell the car person-to-person and then buy yourself a new vehicle.

How do you buy a new car when you still owe on one?

Don't do it. Buying a new car when you still owe on a current vehicle it very foolish. Pay the one you have off before even considering buying another car.

If you owe 2500 more than your car is worth and you trade it in for a car that is worth 2500 less than the new car what would you owe?

If you are trading in a vehicle in which money is still owed, the amount of money outstanding will be rolled over onto the new loan for the new car you are buying. If you owe $2500 on your current car, and are buying a car for $10,000, regardless if it is worth less than your current car, the $2500 note will be added onto the new loan unless you can pay it off beforehand.

Can you trade your car which is worth about 4000 dollars but you currently owe 9000 dollars for a new 23000 dollar car?

If you still owe on a car would you be able to trade it in for another vehicle and what would happen to the remaining balance?

Yes, you can trade a car when you still owe money on it. The key is what is the difference between what you owe and what the car is worth. Dealers refer to this is being "upside down" in your trade. If the amount isn't too much, you should be able to roll it into your next loan. If it's a lot, you may have to come up with some cash. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at

How can you trade a car when you owe more than it is worth?

You can't really trade it without staying in the hole. You can go to a car lot with about 8000.00 dollars and trade it but if your buying a new car that's 12995.00 and you trade a car you owe 9995.00 on they will just add the amount you owe minus what they give you for the car, which is usually nothing and the rest will be put on your new loan. You will owe 3 times as much as you did. The only way to not have the car is to let it go back, but agin that's a repo... I recently had to do that and just bought a car for cash. No car note..that's the best thing. The repo will hurt your credit, but as far as getting another car, you can after about a year and a half.
