We Will Buy Your Car! 

At Don Johnson Motors, we believe in making car shopping and car buying as easy as possible. One way we make that goal achievable for our Rice Lake customers is by offering a hassle-free way to sell their used cars. Not everyone has the time or desire to become a private party seller — and that’s where Don Johnson Motors comes in. We will buy your car, so you don’t have to worry about posting ads or screening buyers. Then, we’ll help you put your car’s value toward the new or pre-owned vehicle you truly want. 

What is the Trade-In Value of My Car? 

If you’re wondering, “What is my used car worth,” the answer is just a few clicks away! Using our handy value your trade-in calculator, you can get an estimated car trade-in value from the comfort of your home or office. Simply input some information about your car into the trade-in value calculator, as well as your contact information, and you’ll have an estimate right away. Keep in mind, there are a few factors that affect trade-in value, including: 

  • Mileage 
  • Mechanical condition 
  • Car features 
  • Exterior/Interior condition 
  • Market landscape 

How to Trade In My Car

Trading in a vehicle is easy at Don Johnson Motors. Just take the following steps:

  1. After you’ve gotten your trade-in estimate, check out our inventory of new and used vehicles to choose your next car, truck, or SUV.
  2. If your trade-in car doesn’t cover the full value of your new car, truck, or SUV, contact our finance center — we’re here to help!
  3. If your trade-in vehicle has a balance remaining on its loan, you can still trade it in! Our finance experts will be happy to discuss the situation and help you make an informed decision about whether trading in your car is worth it.
  4. When you’re ready to make the trade, just bring the vehicle to a Don Johnson Motors dealership along with its title, registration, keys, and auto loan payoff information. We’ll give the vehicle a thorough inspection and make a definitive trade-in offer.

Benefits of Trading in Your Car

If you want to quickly and easily reduce the amount that you owe on your next vehicle, trading in your current vehicle makes a lot of sense! Whether you intend to buy or lease, the amount you get from your trade-in can be applied to your next car, truck, or SUV, which can contribute significantly to your down payment.

Value Your Trade-In: FAQs

Q: Can you trade in a financed car?

A: Yes, you can. If you have positive equity on the car (as in it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in it’s worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually. 


Q: How soon can you trade in a financed car? 

A: There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity. 


Q: What does it mean to be “upside down” on a car loan?

A: Being “upside down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity. 


Q: Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car? 

A: If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car and own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do what you’d like with it.
