How Does Car Financing Work?

Couple Buying a Car


Vineland drivers in the market for a new vehicle have a few options. They can purchase the vehicle of their choice outright, lease it, or apply for financing. What is financing a car? You may be asking questions such as, “What does it mean to finance a car?” and “How does financing a car work?” We want to simplify the process of shopping for a new car, so we are here to answer all of your financing questions.

How Does Financing a Car Work?

How car finance works is actually simpler than it sounds. Once you have found a new or used car that checks all of the boxes on your wishlist, the first step is applying for the loan through the dealership, a bank, or a credit union. To expedite the process, you can begin the application online, but you also have the choice of applying for the loan when you arrive at Volkswagen of Salem County. To determine your monthly rates, your lender will evaluate the following factors:

  • Length of Loan
  • Debt-to-Income Ratio
  • Credit Score
  • Loan Amount
  • Age of the Vehicle

Are you worried about your credit score? If it is less than ideal or you have yet to establish credit, you still have options. One is asking a family member or close friend to cosign your loan.

Select the Right Lender

Once you have been approved for a loan, you once again have a couple of options when it comes to choosing your lender. If the dealership offers in-house financing, you can compare their offer to a bank or credit union offer to see which makes the most sense for your needs and budget. Before making a decision, know what you can put toward a down payment and estimate your monthly payments. You want to be sure you can afford the loan you are taking out. 

Finalize the Loan Terms

You may also consider negotiating the price before you finally settle on a loan. If this is the case, you and the salesperson can go back and forth until you come to an agreement on an interest rate that works for you. When everything is settled, all you have to do is sign the papers and you’re good to go! You are free to drive home to Millville in the vehicle of your dreams.
