Sorry but the loans were upside down the minute you signed the loan papers. Pay off the loans.


The dealership should have nothing to do with the trade-in value of the car.

The trade-in value is determined by market prices--not what you paid or what dealership.

Others will take the car as a trade-in for what it is worth, but you will still owe more which you can tack onto a new vehicle sometimes (but not smart) or have to pay off the loan.

Selling it to a private party would be your best solution but it is time-consuming.

If you go to website and input where you live and what you are looking for, you will be given several options in your local area. If you know of car dealers in your area, just search the web by name of dealership and they should have a list of new and used vehicles on their websites.

There are a number of different sales options on GMC vehicles. Depending on the dealership one can pay the full amount by cash or credit card, one can get an auto financing loan and pay over several years or one can trade in an old vehicle as a deposit on a new car.

There are several options available for purchasing a 1993 Toyota pickup. Used car dealers in your area may have this model year available. A new car dealership will often have used Toyota cars and trucks for sale, even if it isn't a Toyota dealership. If you are comfortable buying from a private party, you can find listings for used vehicles in the AutoTrader, Pennysaver or on craigslist. These listing services also have websites which will allow you to search for a specific model and year and even view pictures of the vehicle before you contact the seller.
