Mainly, it's like trading in your old car for a new one. You'll have to be approved for a car and they may give you certain choices to choose from. And another thing is that your car note is most likely to go up, but you know what you're able to afford. And remember if you're thinking about doing this, talk to your salesman to make sure you have all of the details about it before you sign any legal documents. ADD-ON: The Dealership will take a lot of information about the vehicle, such as the Make/Model, Year, VIN, mileage, options on the vehicle, and wear and tear. They are very picky about about the physical aspect of the vehicle. If you are planning on trading in and getting an expensive vehicle, here is a checklist to get the highest price on your trade in. 1. Mileage. This is a 15/k miles per year deal. IE: In '08 a 2006 vehicle should not have more than 30k miles. Less is even better, but there is a large jump in price if over 15k mi/yr. 2. Dents/dings, and non-stock body parts. A replaced fender is always assumed the part was damaged beyond repair. This deteriorates the trade-in value. Even though the dealership can fix it with 2 hours of a mechanics wage, it is going to cost YOU, the buyer.

What you are talking about is called a trade-in. Plain and simple and yes dealers have a way of dealing with it as long as you have the right income to debt ratio. 28/36 ratios are the norm. And that you have a decent credit rateing. Then they can still possibly get you financed but at a high interest rate, which could put you in a worse situation. That would mean that your payments can not exceed 28% of your gross monthly income and as long as all your debts,, ( rent, electric, child support, phone, you get the idea) do not exceed more than 36% of your gross monthly income. Dealers don't just pay off loans with out you purchasing another vehicle.

Yes - if the car loan was with the dealer, the dealer can sue the debtor for the balance of the car loan after the car is sold to someone else.

You will have to prove to the dealer that you are waiting to get the money. Show the dealer your loan approval documents.

'Title Loan' is a loan you will be getting of having a car loan on your on name.

Private. I suggest getting pre-approved at your bank / credit union, and see if the dealer can beat that rate, as some dealers will arrange financing with a local bank. Private party car loan you can say it in other words personal car loan or person to person car loan where individual can get car loan without cosigner help.

what is the highest interest rate a car dealer can charge on an auto loan in sc?

Yes a vehicle can be repossessed if the loan is not being paid on.

A pre approved car loan is a loan where the car dealer or banks have already run your credit. They have determined how much money they will lend you and what you can afford to buy.

See any dealer and they will find a way to get you financed for a car loan. When I bought my car the dealer found me a loan, found me a decent rate, and the bank that I loaned through. I did not have to do any work other than signing the papers and paying the bill.

One of the advantages of having a car loan is that it allows people to purchase a car if they do not have all of the money right away. Another is that they can take years to pay them off depending on the loan.

User Avatar

IF the dealer is acting as the banks agent(hired to repo), YES.IF you bought the car from that dealer, the dealer may have had "recourse" on the loan, so that he/she had to do the dirty work if you didnt pay. $124.00 is not the main question, how LONG has the $124.00 been in default??

Car loan rates are typically found at car dealers, if the dealer or the car company they sell for is offering financing, or at local banks and credit unions.

User Avatar

yes if you are lucky enough. I guess nationwide car loan executives are very smart enough to give you car title loan even if you are having bad payday loan.

Finance means you take out a loan to pay for the vehicle, then you make regular payments to repay the loan.

There are many reasons why car dealer financing is more costly than getting a loan from the bank. It is more costly because car dealers are usually in the business of making large amounts of money.

User Avatar

you took a loan to finace the car from the dealer- the bank holds the title to your car- you are the owner and respondsilbe to pay the loan or the bank or fiance companmy can reposses your car

User Avatar

yes you can trade it in. But if you owe more than what the dealer is going to give you for the car the remaining balance will be added to your new loan

Nothing is published on what credit score you must have to obtain a car loan. There is information about having a high score means getting a better rate on your car loan.

To find the best car loan rates in your local area, you could use your local directory to contact your local bank or loan agency. Any automobile dealer could also provide information on car loan rates.

You study it and you have to explore about the things involved with all of that and then you will be ready!

Well, for starters it allows people to buy the car. Secondly, a bank contracted with the dealer - that is to say the dealer handles the financing - will pay the dealer anywhere from a $100 "flat" to up to 2% APR on the loan. They will have to pay back the difference to the bank if you pay off the the loan early. If you source your own loan, then it doesn't benifit the dealer. Since they are major sources of lending, dealers will often have cheaper sources of financing than is available to the average consumer. When this is the case, it is cheaper for you to go through the dealer regardless of what the dealer is getting paid.

If no lender will approve a car loan, then continue riding the bus or car pooling while you establish a credit record. Establishing your credit history puts you in control.

You can obtain a car loan after having claimed bankruptcy by applying online at the Cars Direct website. Cars Direct is well known for helping people with poor credit obtain an auto loan.

You cannot simply return it to the dealer. It does not work that way. Unless the dealer is the lien holder, he has nothing to do with the car, which you will find out very quickly if you try to just take it back. You bought the car and took out a loan which you promised to repay when you signed a legal contract to repay the loan plus interest. If you are having financial problems, contact the lender and see if you can work something out. The last thing you want to do is have your car repossessed. If you do then the lender will sell your car for whatever he can get, which is usually wholesale. You will then be responsible for the difference in what the lender sells the car for and the balance left on the loan. You will also be accessed repossession fees. And to add insult to injury, your credit will be ruined for 7 years. The very last resort is to allow your car to be repossessed.

You dont they most often get liquidated at dealer only auctions.

User Avatar

No, unless you are using financing to get the car. Then they can take the car back due to not being able to get you qualified for the loan amount.
