Cost to change - This is the gap between what your car is worth as a trade-in and the price you have agreed with the dealer. If your car is worth £4000 and the car you are buying is £10,000, then your cost to change is £6000, which you will have to pay. This is the most important figure in assessing and comparing deals.
