Trading In a Financed Car

So, how does trading in a financed car work? You can trade in a financed car for lease with just a few simple steps:

  1. Figure out your vehicle loan’s remaining balance as you’re preparing for trading in a financed car. You’ll generally see this on your monthly statement.
  2. Use our Daytona Mitsubishi Value Your Trade tool or a similar one from a reputable service like Kelley Blue Book to get your current vehicle’s estimated value. Remember, however, that this is only an estimate and that you’ll get a full estimate of the car’s worth once the dealership has inspected your vehicle.
  3. If your car loan’s remaining balance is less than your vehicle trade-in offer, you’ll have leftover money that can be contributed towards the cost of purchasing your new car from the dealership.
  4. If your car loan remaining balance is more than the trade-in offer, you’ll still own a negative equity, which is additional money you owe on your car. You can pay off the remaining balance in full before purchasing your next vehicle. You may also have the option to roll over your balance into your next car loan with the dealer near Palm Coast and Deland
