Negative equity on a car is when the car owner owes more money on loan than the vehicle is worth — if the automobile is valued at $15,000, but you own $19,000 on the car, then negative equity is $4,000. This is also called an upside-down car loan. Among the common reasons why cars go down in value and vehicle owners face negative equity car loans are: not investing enough money in the purchased vehicle, heavy wear and tear on the car caused by overuse or neglect, long-term car loans (for 6-7 years), and others.
