Auto financing is one of the most important aspects of the vehicle-buying process because it can have a significant impact on your personal finances for years to come. However, it can be difficult to secure the right auto loan as some lenders have strict requirements.

Fortunately, you can easily find an auto financing solution that suits your budget and needs at Huffines Hyundai McKinney. Regardless of whether you need a standard auto loan, a bad credit loan, or refinancing, our knowledgeable and helpful finance team will go above and beyond to help you enjoy your new vehicle with maximum peace of mind.

How Does Auto Financing Work?

While some people are able to fully pay for a vehicle upfront, most car buyers choose to get auto financing. Similar to other types of financing, auto financing involves borrowing money from a bank, credit union, or independent lender to purchase a new or used vehicle.

When you apply for an auto loan, the lender will look at your credit history, income, and other factors to determine if you can repay your requested loan amount. If your application is approved, you're required to pay back the amount you borrow through monthly payments for the entire duration of the loan. Generally, an auto loan term ranges from two to six years.

If you're able to pay off your auto loan on time, you'll own your vehicle outright. However, failure to keep up with your loan payments can result in the lender taking possession of your car. So, it's essential to choose an auto financing plan with a manageable monthly payment.

Why Should You Get Auto Financing From a Dealership?

Many people prefer to go directly to a financial institution or independent lender to finance their vehicle purchases. However, this may not be the best option for everybody. Getting financing from an auto leadership may be more beneficial to you because of the following reasons:

More Financing Options

Unlike banks and credit unions, which only offer direct financing, the finance department of an auto dealership works with many loan providers to meet the varying financing needs of vehicle buyers. This means it's able to provide you with a wider array of auto financing solutions, allowing you to choose from different interest rates, loan terms, and monthly payment plans. Therefore, you should have no trouble finding your ideal auto loan. This may not be the case if you go to a direct lender, which usually offers only one or two financing plans.

Easier Approval

In most cases, banks and credit unions have strict loan requirements, and they'll thoroughly scrutinize their potential borrowers before giving out loans. If you have a less-than-stellar credit score, you'll probably have a hard time getting a loan from an established financial institution.

Financing your vehicle through an auto dealership is the easiest way to secure an auto loan. Usually, a dealership has strong connections with many financial institutions, finance companies, and private loan providers in its area, so it can help you find a lender with more lenient requirements. If you have a poor credit score or no credit history, special arrangements can be made to have your loan approved.

Personalized Financial Services

The financial experts at an auto dealership are more likely to go out of their way to help you find the right auto financing plan than the loan officers in a bank. This is because you're buying a vehicle from the dealership. Even if you have complicated financing needs, the finance team will try to understand your situation and work with you to come up with a solution to your problems. Whether you need to refinance another loan or consolidate your debt, you can get a financing deal that perfectly fits your needs at an auto dealership.

Option to Lease a Vehicle

Auto leasing basically means renting a car from a dealership for a certain duration of time, which may range from 24 to 60 months. At the end of the lease, you can return the vehicle to the dealer or purchase it at a predetermined price.

Leasing a vehicle offers a number of great benefits. First, you'll enjoy considerably lower monthly payments compared to buying a car, which eases your financial burden. Alternatively, you can opt for a more high-end vehicle than you can't otherwise afford. Also, you don't have to worry about paying for repairs. Many new vehicles come with a warranty that lasts for more than three years. If you lease a car for three years, the warranty should cover most of the repairs.

Another advantage of auto leasing is that it enables you to drive a new vehicle every few years, meaning you most likely won't encounter any car problems. Additionally, you'll be able to use the most advanced technologies in the automotive industry, such as the latest infotainment features and driver-assistance technologies.

How to Apply for Auto Financing at a Dealership

Before you apply for financing with an auto dealership, you need to make a down payment on the vehicle you intend to buy. If you're planning to buy a new car, the down payment should be about 20% of the purchase price. For a pre-owned car, a 10% down payment should be enough. Also, you have to be prepared to pay additional fees, such as license plate fees and documentation fees.

To get an auto loan from a dealership, you have to provide certain documents, which may vary depending on your credit rating. If you have a good credit score, you'll only have to bring your driver's license and pay stubs or tax returns. On the other hand, if you're applying for subprime financing, you may also be asked to show proof of residency, proof of a working phone number, and a list of personal references.

At Huffines Hyundai McKinney, we understand that the process of securing auto financing can be difficult and stressful. Therefore, we strive to help you get the best financing deal in the easiest and quickest manner possible. Feel free to contact our finance department if you have any questions.
