Vehicle Trade-In: FAQs
Now that you’ve learned about how car dealerships that take trade-ins in NJ can be a great option instead of trying to sell your car on your own around Maple Shade and Medford, here are some FAQs you might have about the process so you can prepare accordingly:
- Can you trade in a financed car? Yes. If you have positive equity on the car (as in it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in it’s worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually.
- How soon can you trade in a financed car? There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity.
- What does it mean to be “upside down” on a car loan? Being “upside down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity.
- Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car? If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car and own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do what you’d like with it.
How to Make Your Trade Worth More
When you purchase a new car, staying up to date on maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure you get the highest trade-in value possible. Falling behind on regular maintenance like oil and fluid changes and tire rotations not only hurts your vehicle–it can lose you money during the trade-in process.
As soon as you purchase your new Acura, follow the owner’s manual’s recommendations on when to get your car serviced, then schedule your maintenance appointments with the certified Acura technicians at Acura Turnersville.
