To use our monthly car payment calculator, you’ll need a few pieces of information that will include your vehicle’s trade-in value. But, what if you don’t know how to trade in a car or your trade-in value? We’ve got you covered. Today, Riverside Buick GMC will teach you how to trade in your car and get behind the wheel of a new and improved ride!

Equity & Trade-Ins

Before we touch on how to trade in a car, it’s important to understand equity and how it pertains to your trade-in. Essentially, if you owe more on your auto loan than your vehicle’s trade-in value, you’re “upside-down” on your loan, also known as having negative equity. On the other hand, if your vehicle’s trade-in value is more than your auto loan, you have positive equity. Whatever equity situation you’re in, our finance experts can work with you to determine your next best steps.
