Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can you trade in a financed car?
A: Yes, you can. 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.
Q: Can you trade-in a financed vehicle?

Q: How soon can you trade-in a financed vehicle?
A: There’s no time limit. It can be traded at any time.
Q: My vehicle is not perfect; can I still trade it in?
A: Yes, 100%. At St. Catharines Volkswagen, we accept any trade, in any condition. We are here to work with you!
Q: Why is it beneficial to trade-in?
A: When you trade-in you don’t have to worry about selling the vehicle yourself or any of the associated costs (advertising, showing the car, etc). As well, if the trade-in has known problems that could plague you later (when the buyer returns complaining), selling the car to the dealer eliminates the bother.
Q: Can I “trade-in” or return a leased vehicle:
A: St. Catharines Volkswagen, being part of the Performance Auto Group, has one of Canada’s largest dealer networks and can work with you to help you end your obligation to a leased vehicle. Ending your lease may relieve you of monthly costs you cannot afford.
Q: Can I trade-in my car for a cheaper car?
A: YYes! 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.
Q: I have another question that is not listed here?
A: If you have questions about how to trade-in a vehicle that is paid off, or how to get the best possible offer, don’t hesitate to contact us online or give us a call at 905-688-5230.
