How Does Trading In a Financed Car Work?

Trading in a financed car is a straightforward process. If the amount that is owed on the loan is less than the value of the vehicle, the dealership will often take care of the remaining amount on the loan. For example, if you owe $7,000 on your car, and the dealer offers you $8,000, they will pay off the remainder of the loan and any other financial obligations on your vehicle will be handled by the dealership. Therefore, the amount leftover, in this case $1,000, will be subtracted from the price of your new car.

Rolling Over a Loan: What Does it Mean?

Rolling over a loan is the process where the dealership will pay off the remaining amount of the loan regardless of how much you still owe. The only catch is that the remaining price will be added to the price of your new vehicle. In short, you will be paying the dealership back for both the remaining balance on your old loan through the loan on your new vehicle.
