Dont let a bad credit rating keep you away from your car, mostly since it can mean so much to a family with kids. Going out in a taxi cab or public transport is so uncomfortable for a family group! Well, we all know how convenient it is to have a car and how difficult it is to pay for it in one lump sum
So, Lets Get Into The Essence Of An Auto Loan
It is a credit designed for the purchase of a car and nothing but a car. The basic conditions are that the loan has a determined payment term, between 36 and 72 months for a new car and a somewhat shorter period for a used car.
The loan is secured by the car itself, so the dealer will typically keep the title deed until the payment is totally fulfilled. Should you fail to pay, he may keep the car and resell it to obtain his compensation.
As Far As The Auto Loan Is Concerned
There is no direct incidence of bad credit on this type of loan. However, if your credit rating is terrible, you may be suggested to reduce your debt and repair your credit before you apply for an auto loan. This is because some dealers do not like to have a reputation of keeping peoples cars in case of a default.
Lookout for ruthless dealers, but bear in mind that a car loan can at times be indirectly affected by a bad credit rating.
A Down Payment
Usually, when buying a new car, you will be required to make a down payment of up to 20% of the value of the vehicle, or trade in your old model. Thus, the loan is filed in for the difference. If you are purchasing a used car, it will typically have a loan value, which is a safe percentage of the total value of the car for the granting of a loan without great risk.
So, As You Can See
As you can see, you may be a bad borrower or a compulsive spender and still you are entitled to an auto loan. Of course, you know by now that there are things about your spending habits, attention to payments and/or compulsive buying that you MUST change in order to make it worth while to buy a car on credit and aspire to keep it.
Now, Begin The Shopping
The difference between a good deal and a bad deal lies both in the terms and conditions of the loan, as well as the price and quality of the car, plus the insurance policy. A lender who specialises in car loans has contacts virtually everywhere, so that he can get you just the right car for you, a good guarantee, a good deal on the insurance and the backup of a good name.
A Good Name
A good name is everything, definitely. You may get free quotes on-line and prices of cars, both new and used, but look for those who publish their physical addresses and offer a follow up of the whole operation, not only the loan. Nowadays, competition is so fierce, that real success is achieved by those who give a better service, besides a good price and conditions.
