How to Trade in a Car That's Not Paid Off

Is it possible to trade in a car that's not paid off? Yes, but remember that the loan on your vehicle will not go away because you decided to trade the car in. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind if you plan on trading in a car that's not paid off:

  1. If the remaining amount of your auto loan is less than the trade-in offer, then you will have money leftover that goes towards purchasing a new car from the dealer. For example: If you still owe $7,000 on your vehicle in Selkirk, and the dealer offers you $8,000 to buy the car, the loan can get paid off, and you have $1,000 to contribute towards your next vehicle. 
  2. If the remaining balance of your auto loan is more than the trade-in offer, then you still owe money on your car, and that's called negative equity. You can pay off the remaining balance in full before buying your next car, or you can rollover the balance into your next auto loan with the dealer.

How to Get the Best Value for Your Trade-In

Here are some things that you can do ahead of time to help ensure that you get the best trade-in value possible:

  • Clean the Car - Washing your vehicle, vacuuming the interior, cleaning the glass, etc., will make your car look its best and increase its value.
  • Bring Service Records - Your maintenance and service records will prove that the vehicle has been well taken care of and will improve the trade-in value of your vehicle.
  • Make Minor Repairs - Simple, inexpensive repairs such as replacing broken knobs or burned-out lights can help you get the best trade-in price.
  • Get a Trade-In Estimate - Using our online Instant Trade Appraisal tool will give you a quick estimate on what the vehicle is worth, so you won't have any surprises when you finalize the trade.

The Trade-In Process: What to Expect

First of all, it is important to have an idea of what your car's trade-in value is before you visit our dealership near Steinbach. You should also explore our inventory of new and used vehicles to find the one that will best suit your needs. If your trade-in value doesn't cover the cost of the vehicle that you are purchasing, our finance team can help you get a low-interest loan to cover the remaining amount. Once you are ready to make a trade, bring your vehicle to Capital Ford Winnipeg along with the title, auto loan payoff information, service records, and registration. We'll review the documentation, run a vehicle history check, inspect the vehicle, and finalize the trade-in value amount. We make the entire trade-in process simple, easy, and hassle-free!
