Change car value to 'track automatically'

I have a car I added to Mint several years ago.  I would like to take advantage of the track value automatically feature.

My problem is, when I try to change the car's value to 'track automatically', Mint adds a new car instead of updating the value of my existing car.

How can I fix this?

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to change from manual tracking to automatic tracking of a car's value (or vice versa). The suggestions that Mint Maggie offered do not apply to accounts on the "Other" tab in Mint like cars, as there is no way to mark them as "Closed." Hiding the accounts is also not useful, as with either hiding option ("Budgets and Trends" or "Everywhere") the account is hidden for your entire history, and so your assets will be lower for the entire time the car was tracked in Mint.

Long story short: if you want to keep the history, you're stuck with either manual tracking or automatic tracking - whichever you started with for a given asset.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
