How Does Financing a Car Work?

The first step in financing a used car, truck, or SUV is to apply for an auto loan through our dealership, a credit union, or your bank. If you opt to finance with your dealership, you can either apply for a loan when you visit our used car dealership dean Clarksville, or you can start the process online. Here’s what our finance center will take into account when you apply for financing online:

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

Choose Your Lender

You might have multiple options if you’re approved by multiple lenders. When you apply for financing, you’re not bound to any particular plan. Be sure you consider all the options you’re afforded to ensure you get a rate that works for you! Compare the different offers from your credit union, your bank, and the dealership itself, and be sure to choose the plan that works best for your lifestyle and budget.
