How Does Trading In a Financed Car Work?

If the remaining amount of owned on your auto loan is less than the current value of your vehicle, the dealer buying your vehicle will give you enough to pay the rest of the loan off. For example, if you still own $9,000 on your vehicle, and the dealer offers you $10,000 for it, you can then pay off your current auto loan and have the car transferred to the dealership buying the car. The leftover $1,000 will then be applied to the new vehicle you are purchasing.

What Does “Rolling Over” a Loan Mean?

Rolling over a loan is when the dealership where your trading in your vehicle pays off your loan in full, no matter how much is still owned. However, this doesn’t get you out of paying off your old vehicle. The amount of your old loan gets added to your new loan on the next car you buy. This means you have to pay the dealership back for the old loan they paid off, as well as pay off the cost of your new vehicle.
