Are you on Ford finance or just a personal loan?

If it is secured against the car the best bet is to have the garage buy the car back off you, by paying off the finance and giving you the rest as a deposit against a new car.

Ok so if it's in ford options you can trade it in early, obviously you longer the keep the car the better situation it will be in. Just pop into your local dealer and they should be able to tell you what they could do with your car and get you into an ST.

If your vehicle was purchased via the privilege scheme it must be retained by you for 9 months.

You can sell it and settle any outstanding finance with the new buyer however in my experience as soon as you tell the interested party/buyer you will settle outstanding finance with their cash. They turn away.

Good luck!

Not sure about selling it as it's on finance so technically it's not your car.

But you can definatly trade it in. Get a settlement quote so you know what you owe. Then when and if you do the deal they will pay off your finance with what your car is worth. If there is any left over that is some deposit. If it's not worth as much as you owe you can either pay the difference or I assume they could add it in to your new finance deal.

Most dealers will be able to pay off existing finance and then work any deficit etc into a new deal. I would expect you will lose money in the long run and end up with a financed amount more than the car you are buying etc. Dealers are very good with playing around with figures to get an deal done from my experience.

The finance was with a separate company

You will want to check with them to be sure, but you almost certainly will have an unsecured personal loan, which means the car is yours to do with as you wish. (although you still owe them the money).

I bought my Fiesta on finance, but it was arranged by the dealer through Barclays. The loan was unsecured, so even though I have traded in for my current Focus, I have still kept the loan going.

I did phone barclays to check though first :)
