One of the most common questions our customers ask is:  “Can I trade my car in early?”

This is a great question and one I’d like to address.

At Markosian Auto all of our in-house financed deals are short-term leases.  We never do more than a three-year lease and most are two to two and half years.  This offers our customers flexibility and a quicker path to ownership if that’s what their goal is.  We offer early trade-ins for customers who have about 6 months left on their lease. However, there are exceptions.

Breaking the lease early costs our company a lot of money to recondition the trade and sell it to another customer.  If a customer is willing to share that expense with additional money down, we’ll be happy to trade that car in.

In some cases, a customer’s credit has improved to the point where we may be able to arrange financing through a credit union.  We would be happy to explore this option at any point in the lease contract.

There is an unprecedented rise in used vehicle prices.  This is good and bad.  Good for the trade-in value but bad because the new cars are also more expensive. We can look at the trade-in value of the customer’s existing car and see if it makes sense to proceed with trade-in.

The bottom line is if you’re existing vehicles no longer fit your needs, come and talk to us.  We’ll explore all of your options.  We want our customers to be happy with their vehicles.  We’ll do all we can to make that happen.  Thank you for your business
