Once you get started, it’s easy to understand how car finance works. Financing means that you apply for the loan through the dealership, a bank, or a credit union in order to take the car home, and you pay back the loan with monthly payments over time. You can even start the process by filling out a loan application online, or you can apply for a loan right at the dealership. Some factors that will affect what type of financing loan you are able to get include:
If you have a low credit score or bad credit history, or if you don’t have enough credit built up yet, one option to get a better finance rate is to ask a family member or someone else that’s close to you to cosign the loan.
If you qualify for an auto loan, chances are you will have a few options when it comes to choosing your lender. Many dealerships offer in-house financing, so you can shop around and compare the dealer’s offer to a bank or credit union’s to find the loan that works best for you.
Steps to help determine what loan will work for you:
Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure you are getting the best deal you can. If you have decent credit there might be wiggle room for negotiating on the loan terms and interest rate. Once you are satisfied, you can finalize the loan terms, sign all the necessary paperwork, take delivery of the vehicle, and drive home to the San Diego area in your new vehicle.
