Can I Trade In My Car If It Was Used As Collateral On A Loan

Posted in Used Car Loan | Asked on Jun 22, 2010

We are wanting to trade in our gas guzzler jeep for a more economical car. However, the jeep was used for collateral on a loan. Is it possible to trade it in, then replace the jeep title with the title of the newly purchased car on the loan?

    you can’t trade it in if this another lien on it. you would need to pay off that loan in order to trade in the truck

    Call up your lender and indicate your intentions. The lender will have to issue a letter of lien release to the dealership in order for them to legally accept the vehicle as a trade. Keep your original lender informed of the deal. They shouldn’t have a problem cooperating. They will check Kelly Blue Book to ensure that the replacement value of the vehicle will satisfy the collateral amount.

    Hope this helps

    No. The Jeep has a lien on it and you can’t sell it until the lien is satisfied.

    Hello Friend,

    i saw your request for a loan on net so i decided to help by telling you my testimony. i am Mrs. Sherly Brown a widow who lost her husband 4 years ago. presently on a wheel-chair. After being involved in a fatal accident in my country. About 3 years ago i decided to seek financial assistance through this medium. And as God may want it, i came across a God fearing, trusted and patriotic loan lender By name Mr.Jerry Patricks who came like an angel when i felt all hope was lost.

    I got in contact with him, an he was able to loan me the sum of $42 000.00 USD.Which after investing in a business, i was able to pay back within the period of one year.Today am doing well with my business, a owner of landed properties in my country. Thank God for this man he sent.So if you are in any financial disability or wish to seek for a loan. please do contact Mr.Jerry Patricks through his e-mail address:

    And i know that the God that done it for me will also do it for you.

    Stay Blessed
