What is financing a car? Learn how car finance works in this handy guide with Land Rover Princeton. We work hard to ensure you have a stress-free and well-informed experience at our dealership.

How Does Financing a Car Work?

The first step to learning how car finance works – apply for an auto loan through a car dealership or another financial institution. Start the application process right at home online or apply for a car loan at the dealership. Lenders will look at the following factors:

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

If you know that your credit report and score are not good, think about asking a family member or close friend to cosign your loan.

Choose Your Lender

Once approved for the auto loan, there are a few options available, like going to a dealer or bank. If the dealership offers in-house financing, you can compare their loan offer to a bank or credit union to see which place offers the better deal. Consider how much you can put as a down payment and what your monthly car payments will be. Doing this ensures that you won’t have trouble paying back the auto loan.

Finalize the Loan Terms

Before finalizing your auto loan, you can negotiate the price. Once you and the sales associate have settled on everything, you can close the deal. You will sign all of the necessary documents and drive home to the Mount Laurel area in your vehicle.
