Refinancing vs. Trading in Your Car

Car loans are some of the hardest to pay off after you go through financial trouble. You may not be able to afford the loan payment or you just want to consolidate some of your debt so you can easily pay on your car and keep it. Repossession is always a scary ordeal for any vehicle owner, so in order to avoid that, the two best options are refinancing and trading in your vehicle.

Refinancing is a good option if your finance company offers it. They may change or lower the interest rate, as well as the length of the loan. You want to make sure that you don't end up paying more for the vehicle than it's worth, but that's difficult to do if you are already having trouble with the loan payments.

The other option is trading in the vehicle and getting a lower cost car. You can check out the options at Mike Raisor Pre-Owned Center located in Lafayette.
