Everything you need to know about car loans
Are you thinking about getting a new car, but don’t have the funds to buy one out right? Buying a car is a big decision, but taking out a car loan is an even bigger decision. It’s important to get your facts straight before you decide to get a car loan. Here is everything you need to know about car loans:
Determine your Budget
It is so easy to just jump into buying a car and making payments, but you need to determine your budget ahead of time. Just because the dealership says you can make the payments doesn’t always mean that you can, or that you should.
Your Car Insurance Will Go Up
Not only will you have a new car payment to pay, but you will, also need to pay for full coverage on your vehicle. If you have a loan out on your car, you will essentially pay more on your car insurance than you would without a loan. This is because the insurance company is at a greater risk of paying when you have a loan.
You will Essentially Pay More for your Car
Just like a mortgage, you will pay more for your car in the long run after you take out a loan. Because interest is applied to any loan that you take out, the money you pay will increase depending on the interest percentage you get.
Your Credit Will Determine your Interest Rate
Most people think their credit score only determines their ability to take out a car loan, but a credit report can also make a determination as to how much interest you pay. A good credit score can help you pay less interest back, but a poor credit score will increase the interest you have to pay.
