Purchasing a vehicle from the wide inventory of used cars here at Patriot Auto Group means getting a car, truck, or SUV you love at a price that won’t break the bank. We believe that the automotive financing process should be easy and accessible to everyone, which is why we’re sharing information and guidelines on the process, like how to finance a used car.
Can I Finance a Used Car?
Financing a used car is easy here at Patriot Auto Group, but there are a few steps you’ll want to take before you even come down to our dealership. To start, it’s always a good idea to check your credit score before you begin the vehicle financing process.
Your credit score will tell the lender how risky you are to lend money to. The higher your credit score, the better your financing terms, so you may want to consider taking the time to bring your credit score up, if you can.
Next, you’ll want to begin comparing your financing options to find the best terms for your personal budget. Take into consideration your down payment, the length of the term, your interest, monthly costs, and more.
It’s also important to remember that financing a pre-owned vehicle will cost more than financing a brand-new car, simply because the lender expects to see less money returned on interest.
