First of all stop trading. You can almost always sell your car for more than you will receive on a trade. Unless you are upside-down on the car you own, you can just sell it and pay off the loan and then buy a cheaper car. If you do owe more than it is worth, then see if the lender will allow you to sell the car and then borrow enough to pay off the balance of the loan with enough left over to buy a beater car that will get you from point A to point B. Without a trade-in you can bargain better and purchase a better car for less money. Drive that beater until you pay it off and save enough to buy a better car. You probably won't take this advice but I will give it anyway. Never ever borrow money to purchase a car, and never buy a new car. Save your money and pay cash for a 2-3 year old car that has depreciated considerably. Let someone else take a beating those first couple of years. Just think of all the money you save by not paying interest on a car loan.

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

It is not a good idea to make such a trade. The dealer will offer you significantly less then you owe, and move the difference unto your cheaper car. The bank may not even want to finance your cheaper car because the collateral would not cover the entire loan balance. You may be able to get approved if you purchase GAP insurance when making the trade; however, there is no guarantee. Even if you can get approved, it would not be the best choice to do so. Imagine making a $500 payment on a car that over 5 years would have had a $300 payment. You could probably keep the more expensive car for the same $500 a month. Weigh the options. It is usually more expensive to trade the more expensive car for a cheaper one.

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.

A car down payment is the amount of money or the trade-in value of your current car required by your lender before a loan is issued.
