How Does Financing a Car Work?

What does it mean to finance a car? It just means you’re getting a loan because you don’t have enough cash. The first part of learning how car finance works is to simply apply for a loan. Spitzer Motors of Mansfield CDJR makes it easy with our online finance application. You can also apply through a bank or a credit union around Mansfield. Factors that the lender will consider to approve you include:

  • Your Credit Score
  • The Loan Amount
  • Length of Auto Loan
  • Your Debt-to-Income Ratio
  • The Age of the Vehicle

If you know your credit score may be too low or you don’t have much of credit history, ask a family member or friend to cosign on your auto loan.

Choose Your Lender Carefully

If you’re approved for a loan, you need to consider a few different options. You can use dealership in-house financing, or go with a bank or credit union. Compare the offers to see which works best for your budget. Pay close attention to how much money you can put down, and the amount and length of your monthly payments.

Finalize the Loan Terms

Now that you know what it means to finance a car, don’t forget to negotiate on the price. Typically, you and the salesperson will go back and forth until you agree on a price and interest rate that works for you. Then, you can finalize the loan terms with the finance team, sign your papers, and close the deal. The last part is the best, driving to your Ashland home in your brand new vehicle!
