Generally folks elect to purchase their cars and trucks through financing, making monthly installments as opposed to forking over the whole amount at once. Unfortunately, arranging an auto loan can be a tiresome process, prolonging the entire car shopping process. We make it possible to get approved for an auto loan the day you apply, at a low rate of interest, no matter your credit score.

An auto loan professional can walk you through the process, helping you get a loan from a company that won’t charge you an arm or leg.

Used Car Loans in Austin

New vehicles are attractive, for sure. Having said that, to put yourself in the strongest financial position, you might want to choose a second hand car. Check out the table below.

Years Old Price APR Months Payment Interest Total Cost
New $18,000 6.00% 60 $347.99 $2,879 $20,879
1 Year $14,400 7.50% 60 $288.55 $2,913 $17,313
2 Years $12,240 7.50% 60 $245.26 $2,476 $14,716
3 Years $10,404 7.50% 60 $208.47 $2,104 $12,508

After it leaves the dealer lot, a new vehicle loses as much as a quarter of its value, and it continues burning off a significant percentage of its value every year. A car or truck that cost $18,000 new will be worth only around $10,404 three years later. Used car loans have slightly higher rates, but in many instances, you only need 10% down, and the insurance premiums are less costly.

Poor Credit Car Loans in Austin

Do you have a credit score in the mid to low 600s? A lot of consumers choose to ignore checking their credit score, because they just don’t want to know. However, you really should keep an eye on your score. Fortunately, you can now find loan companies who meet the needs of individuals with poor credit.

Buy here pay heredealers are another option. The interest rates border on criminal, and the vehicles tend to be overpriced. You will be better off with an auto loan from a traditional bank, credit union, or loan company. The down payments are cheaper, the same as the rates of interest, and the service is far better.

No Money Down Financing in Austin

In most situations, you’ll still need some actual cash to get financed, as a down payment of 10-20% is usually necessary.

The down payment compensates for the rapid drop in value you face with any new vehicle sale. Having no down payment raises your interest rate. If you have excellent credit, this is a reduced concern, as your rate is affordable already. If you have less-than-perfect credit, such a high interest rate is never the best idea. You’re better off saving money for a down payment or exchanging your old vehicle for equity.
