Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

Can I sell a car with a loan and cancel it when I sell it or do I have to wait for
the 4 weeks it take to get the title after you pay down the loan? Dealerships
do that all time ...

You can sell a car with a lien. The easiest way to process the sale is to do it at the lender's office. They will do the math and tell the buyer when he can expect delivery of a clean title and a lien release.
