Financing a new vehicle is a good idea for a multitude of reasons. Not only does it allow for lower upfront costs and help build your credit, but it also significantly increases your chances of getting a high-quality vehicle that will last. Still, the financing process can be a bit complex for those with zero experience in banking and finance.
Many dealerships will use complicated verbiage that you don’t always feel like you can trust. Others might pull excess credit checks, damaging your credit score in the process. At Lange and Fetter, our dedicated financial professionals will work with you every step of the process to ensure you get the best deal, the lowest interest rate, and a car that’s perfect for your lifestyle. In partnership with Quinte West Auto Credit, we employ a streamlined process that can help you pre-qualify for vehicles you’re guaranteed to get – without any risk to your credit score! Whether you have good credit, bad credit, or no credit, we handle the complicated parts of financing while keeping you informed from the first meeting straight up until your new car is in your driveway!
The total cost, terms, and interest rate are the major players to keep in mind when it comes to calculating your car payments. The total cost includes any service fees (which we’re always transparent about) and optional add-ons you’d like with your vehicle. Terms typically run anywhere from 2 to 6 years. The shorter the term you choose, the more the upfront costs will be.
Interest rates are calculated as the percentage the specific lender decides to charge for the loan. These rates usually depend on the level of risk the lender is taking on the loan. Factors like your credit score, income, current debts, size of the loan, etc., will determine your interest rates.
Your options when it comes to financing a vehicle will be largely dependent on your personal credit and financial situation. However, there is a wide range of loans and interest rates available to individuals with varying credit, from good to bad to non-existent. While dropping your hard-earned cash on a new car outright can lift the burden of worrying about repayment, financing a vehicle allows you the pay much less upfront and avoid getting your savings tied up in an investment vehicle.
Here at Lange & Fetter, we work with many affordable and flexible local lenders that offer competitive rates to individuals with every type of credit status imaginable. Moreover, banks generally view vehicle financing as low risk as they can easily repossess the car in the event of non-payment.
Speaking of which, there are plenty of other reasons financing a vehicle is a great idea, including:
