Can I swap my car if it's on finance?

I am struggling to understand my finance agreement with regards to what options I may have. I do believe that I am paying a ridiculous amount of money for my car.Do I have the option of trading in and getting something with a monthly rate that is cheaper? My finance is a fixed term loan, and I would have had the car for a year this coming April, can you offer my any advice?

Jayne Travis

Answer from the Stoneacre finance team:

Thank you for your question, I’m sorry to hear you are unhappy with your current agreement you have in place.The good news is you definitely have the option to trade in your car and look to get something cheaper! In regards to your rate this based on your personal circumstances, at Stoneacre we use a large panel of lenders which I’m confident can help you get a better deal.Another bit of good news for yourself is it doesn’t matter that you have only had your car just under a year, we have lenders that would look to cover any difference between your car’s valuation and what you have outstanding with your finance company if there was any.All we’d need to get the ball rolling for you is a settlement figure from your current lender and 5 minutes of your time to run through an application.Please call our in-house team on 01405 744186 if you have any further questions.Thanks for the question Jayne.

I've had my car just over 6 moths and have it for the next 5 years, I really hate the car and have had nothing but trouble with it, are you able to change the car or not?

Michael Robinson

Answer from the Stoneacre finance team:

Thank you for the question, you can part-exchange the vehicle if you're not happy with it, what we can do is look at what the outstanding finance is on your current vehicle and your vehicle's value and see if we can structure you a new finance deal on a vehicle you are happy with.
