Nearly all new cars and trucks are purchased with loans or leased. It would be great if this was a convenient process, but it really isn’t. Lending institutions require a good deal of information before deciding to approve you for financing. In most cases, it’s better to line up your loan in advance. You could be working out the finer points of your car loan in no time.

A lot of finance companies only show you the most affordable rate they have, only available to consumers with perfect credit.

Used Car Loans in Atlanta

Some people are put off by pre-owned cars because the loan rates are more expensive. Having said that, new cars depreciate so quickly, used vehicles are typically a better value. Have a look at the chart below, showing the costs associated with auto loans for new versus used cars and trucks.

Age Price Rate Months Payment Interest Total Cost
New $17,250 6.00% 60 $333.49 $2,759 $20,009
1 Year $13,800 7.50% 60 $276.52 $2,791 $16,591
2 Years $11,730 7.50% 60 $235.05 $2,373 $14,103
3 Years $9,971 7.50% 60 $199.79 $2,017 $11,987

For most of us, a used car is the better option. Let’s consider the typical limits on auto loans for used cars:

  • Vehicle not more than 7-10 years old.
  • Mileage no greater than 100,000.
  • Bought through dealer, not private party.

Poor Credit Auto Loans in Atlanta

Ordinarily, promotions such as no money down are out of the question if your credit score has seen better days. The higher your credit score, the greater number of options you’ll have. Before the internet, you pretty much forced to take whatever interest rate and stipulations they gave you. Today, there are better strategies to get financed.

Many consumers wind up going to Atlanta buy here pay here car dealers, most of which don’t even consider a consumer’s credit. The APR rates are very steep, and the cars and trucks tend to be priced higher than they would be at other dealerships.

Whenever feasible, you’ll want to get your finance package through one of the following loan providers:

  • National or regional bank.
  • Credit union for which you’re eligible.
  • Automobile loan company.

A dealer or finance specialist will help you obtain financing from one of these lenders. The rates should be lower, the terms significantly better, and you have the ability to improve your credit in the process.

Best of all, you can submit your application online.

Decreasing Your Interest Rates

There are several ways to reduce your annual percentage rate. Is your credit report marred by any errors? These can harm your credit score quite considerably. You can obtain your credit report completely free here. Correcting any discrepancies–a straight-forward process–could really improve your credit score. Often, including a cosigner with your finance package could also lessen your annual percentage rate.

Can a Car Loan Improve Your Credit?

An auto loan can be a highly effective method of improving your credit score, but you have to ensure that you make your payments on time. Please bear in mind that this is a gradual process. Most lenders offer automatic bill-pay options, which are crucial for making your payments on time every month.
