How To Find Your Car’s Trade-In Value With Ray Catena Lexus of Freehold

Before we go over how to value your trade-in, it’s important that you understand how equity works with a vehicle trade-in. Equity is simply the difference between your vehicle’s value and the amount of money you owe on your auto loan. If you have positive equity, your vehicle is worth more than you owe and you can likely use that extra money towards your new vehicle loan.


Negative equity is when your vehicle is worth less than what you owe on your auto loan. We may be able to “roll over” your negative equity into your new auto loan but it all depends on your specific situation. We recommend you work with our team to find out what works best for your Old Bridge lifestyle. With that being said, here’s how to trade in your vehicle at our dealership:


  1. Start by entering your information into our trade-in tool. You’ll need your VIN, mileage, and vehicle’s condition.
  2. Next, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with Ray Catena Lexus of Freehold so that we can confirm your vehicle’s trade-in value.
  3. We’ll go over your vehicle’s overall condition and touch on any other factors that could determine your vehicle’s worth.
  4. After we’ve confirmed your vehicle’s trade-in value and you’ve accepted the offer, you can simply sell us your vehicle or upgrade to a new one with our team and we’ll complete the final paperwork to get you on your way.
