How To Qualify For Auto Loan Financing

Before you get approved for Chevy financing, the lender will need the following information from you: 

  • Condition of the Vehicle
  • Credit Score
  • Age of the Vehicle
  • Employment History
  • Debt-to-Income Ratio
  • Credit History
  • Repayment Terms
  • Loan Amount Requested

If you opt for a pre-owned vehicle from our inventory, you can expect the used car finance process to work the same as financing a new model. But, if you haven't yet established your credit or you have poor credit, you may have to pay a higher interest rate than other Kingsport drivers who have better credit. That’s why it’s worth the effort to try and improve your credit score before you apply for Chevy financing or a lease. 

Things To Do Before Applying For Auto Loan Financing

The experts in our finance center are here to answer all your questions and pair you with the finance or car leasing option that works best for your budget. You can also use our helpful payment calculator to determine a monthly payment amount you can handle. Below you’ll find a few financing tips to help the finance process flow smoother and have you cruising Bristol highways in no time:

  • Use our trade-in valuation tool to estimate the value of your current vehicle.
  • Remember to factor in the amount for car insurance, fuel and maintenance, and unexpected repairs into your monthly budget.
  • Do your best to save money for a down payment. Your down payment amount can reduce your overall loan amount and equate to smaller monthly payments.
  • Be certain to make your auto payment on time, every time.

Car Leasing Vs. Financing

During your car-buying journey, you may be faced with the decision to lease or finance your new vehicle, but which route is better? Well, that answer comes down to what’s best for your unique situation. When you choose car leasing, you agree to drive a vehicle from a dealership for an agreed-upon amount of time and miles and pay for its usage rather than for the full purchase price of the vehicle. You will have a monthly payment based on the car’s projected depreciation value over the course of the lease term, and at the end of the term, you can transition to a different vehicle with a new lease term.

When you opt to finance a vehicle, you enter into a loan agreement with a bank or other financial institution. The full price of the vehicle is divided into monthly payments, and once you’ve satisfied all the payments, you own the car and can sell it or whatever you wish. 

Neither path is better than the other and honestly depends on personal preference. If you're someone who likes the flexibility of driving a different vehicle every two years or so then leasing is a great choice. But, if you prefer to make a long-term investment, auto loan financing is the way to go.
