What to Know About Financing

A little knowledge goes a long way

We know auto financing is complicated. Just remember that it’s ok to learn as you go. Here are a few tips to get you started on the right track.

Shop Around

The only way to ensure you’re getting the best possible rate on your financing is to do your homework. While you can usually get financing through the dealership, you should also get quotes from local banks, online banks and credit unions. And don’t forget to ask about rebates and incentives. Your credit score can also have a significant impact on your rate, but the rate you’re quoted will also depend on the lender. Learn how your credit score can impact your rate.

Buy or Lease?

While buying tends to be most people’s default option, a lease can be the perfect solution for someone who prefers to drive a new car every 2 or 3 years and wants to keep monthly payments reasonable. There are advantages and drawbacks to both buying and leasing, so make sure you research both options to find the best fit for your situation. Compare your options.

Talk It Out

Once you have an idea of which lenders can offer the best rate, you can often negotiate that rate even lower. Since auto dealerships often have more flexibility than other lenders, your dealership may be willing to match or beat quoted rates from other lenders. Make sense of the financing process.

Get the Big Picture

Getting a low rate is great, but remember that it’s only part of the picture. Make sure you have a clear understanding of the total amount you’ll be paying over the life of the financing plan when factoring in the length of the contract, cost of insurance and potential fees. Our monthly payment calculator can help give you a better idea of what you’ll be paying every month.
