How Car Finance Works

If you’re shopping for a new or used vehicle in Harlingen, you’ll likely need to apply for a loan with a dealership, bank, or credit union. With Boggus Tipton Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, you can start the application online or at the dealership. These are things the lender will consider:

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

If you know you have poor credit or don’t have a lengthy credit history, you might want to ask a family member or close friend to help you and cosign your loan.

Select a Lender

If you’re approved for a car loan, you usually have a few different options. If the dealership offers in-house financing, carefully compare their offer to a bank or credit union around McAllen to see which is best for your needs and budget. Figure out how much money you can afford for a down payment and how much your monthly payments will be.

Finalize the Loan Agreement

Before you complete your loan paperwork, you might have to negotiate the price and amount of the down payment. You and your salesperson will go back and forth until you agree on the loan terms and an interest rate that works for you. Then, you can finalize the loan and drive home in your new Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or RAM truck!
