A trade-in vehicle is a big help when used as part of a down payment for someone whose credit has been struggling. As long as there's equity in your vehicle,it can help. Equity is the difference between the amount of money owed on, and the actual value of, a vehicle. There's equity in your car as long as you owe a lender less than the actual cash value of your vehicle.
On the other hand, if you owe more than the vehicle is worth, it has negative equity or is upside down. This situation can make it more difficult to trade in a vehicle. Without equity, trading a car in could end up costing you more money in the long run, but there are options if you're prepared. It's important to factor in your trade-in as part of the deal when you start your search for a vehicle.
