Vehicle Exchange Program



Within the first 3 business days or 150 miles from date of purchase/lease (whichever comes first), the

purchaser/lessee may return an eligible vehicle to the selling Tri Star location for an exchange of

another eligible if not completely satisfied with the vehicle.

If, during the 3-Day/150-Mile Vehicle Exchange Program period, the purchaser/lessee chooses to trade

in the vehicle to the selling dealer for another eligible pre-owned vehicle or a new vehicle, the

purchaser/lessee will receive credit for the following amounts paid toward the vehicle returned: the

“down payment,” the “Agreed-Upon Trade-in Value,” and any amounts paid toward the principal

balance/capitalized cost of the finance agreement.

Exchange is of greater or equal valued vehicle.  Sale discounts and or rebate changes will be factored into the exchange.


All vehicles except those explicitly excluded

below are eligible for the 3-Day/150-Mile Vehicle Exchange Program if returned to the selling dealer

within the first 3 business days (a business day is when the selling dealer has normal scheduled

operations) or 150 miles (whichever occurs first) of delivery. Qualifying vehicles may be exchanged

within the first 3 business days or 150 miles (whichever occurs first) of delivery for a vehicle of

equivalent value.

The vehicle must be currently owned or leased by the original purchaser/lessee. The vehicle must be

returned in the condition in which it was delivered to the customer without damage or excessive wear

and tear.

Customer must qualify for financing on the exchange vehicle and meet all stipulations and requirements from lender.

Refer to the Vehicle Inspection section below.


• Fleet purchases and fleet lease vehicles

• Vehicles used for livery, taxi, or delivery services

Vehicle Inspection

Any vehicle returned under the 3-Day/150-Mile Vehicle Exchange Program will be inspected by the

dealer for damage and excessive wear and tear. If non-warranty repairs equal to or greater than $300

have been performed or are necessary as a result of the customer’s use of the vehicle, the vehicle is not

eligible to be returned. If less than $300, the damage repair estimate will be deducted from the credit


Valuation of Trade-In Vehicle

If the customer trades in her/his current vehicle as part of the vehicle purchase transaction,

the “Agreed-Upon Trade-in Value” will be used in determining the value to be applied to an equivalent



There may be instances when the customer elects to return a vehicle under the 3-Day/150-Mile Vehicle

Exchange Program then orders a replacement vehicle instead of buying/leasing one out of the dealer’s

inventory. In these cases, dealer will provide alternate

transportation or allow the customer to keep the original vehicle while the replacement vehicle is on order.
