You can but the amount you owe on your trade in will be rolled into the new loan. So in effect you'll be paying for two vehicles. One of which you on longer have. HTH. -Jim

My recommendations: 1) Find the new vehicle you want and negotiate the best price for it. If the seller asks if you're trading in, just tell him you'll be bringing money to the table. 2) Wait until the end of the month to finalize your offering price. (Salesmen do need to make quotas every month). 3) Make sure you have a written copy of the seller's best offer 4) Now, tell him that part of the money you're bringing is what you can get for your current vehicle OVER the amount you owe. 5) Be prepared to walk away!
