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.

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

Can you trade in a used car for another car if you are still making payments on the first car?

Yes you can, but you have to owe less on the car than the trade in given. In other words if you owe 2,000 on the car and they give you three that means the loan on car 1 gets paid off and you have a 1,000 towards the price of car 2. But if you owed 5,000 on car 1 and they gave you 3,000 you would still have a balance due on car loan 1.


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.

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.

Can you be charged for a car if you let the car be repoed?

Lets say your financing a brand new car. You owe $25,000 on it and when it gets reposessed you still owe $18,000. The reposession company will sell the car and that gets subtracted from what you owe. Lets say they sell it for $7,500. So they would subtract $7,500 from $18,000 which means when all is said and done, you still owe $11,500 on the car.
