If you're thinking about buying a car from our Holland, MI dealership and currently own a vehicle, you can save money by trading in. Our Genesis financing program allows you to put the value of your old car toward the cost of your new vehicle, allowing you to take full advantage of your assets. For example, if we appraise your vehicle at $3,000 and you're buying a truck for $18,000, you only have to pay $15,000.

Learn About Trading Process

So what is the trade-in and Genesis financing process? It's a little longer than buying outright, but the savings are well worth a short wait. While there are several steps, you don't have to worry about most of them -- we'll take care of appraising and filing paperwork.


As part of the appraisal process, an expert from our used car department may drive your trade-in around our Holland, MI, dealership and the surrounding area. A lengthy drive can reveal any quirks or issues that may affect the vehicle's value.

We may also run a history report. These reports specify if the vehicle has been in any accidents, which is essential to know since damage from accidents can impact performance.


Once we've determined the value of your vehicle, we'll make an offer. If you think the offer is too low, you can negotiate with our representative to come to a compromise. Please note that we may not budge on the offer, but we are open to a discussion.

This is also the point where you should mention if a credit union or bank has pre-approved you for a loan. There are many ways to finance a new or used Genesis, but we may beat a deal made by an external lender.


Once we've agreed on the trade-in value, it's time to get the paperwork in order. When you trade-in a vehicle to a dealership, you're handing over ownership, which means there are a lot of legal hoops to jump through:

Changing the name on the title

Registering the vehicle

Paying off lienholders

The good news is, our representatives will handle all the hard work. To complete the trade-in and sale, all you need to do is sign.


What happens if you have a loan on the vehicle you're trading in? As part of the Genesis financing process, we'll pay off your loan. The entire transaction occurs between our dealership and the lender, so you don't have to worry about making future payments or filing any paperwork.
