Car Loan Guide: Is It Better to Finance a Car Through Your Bank?

In today's fast-paced society, owning a car has become essential. It enables easy mobility, saves time, and instills a sense of independence. Even so, buying a car outright with cash isn't always feasible, which prompts people, including you, to seek car loans.

Car Loan Guide

Although car loans may appear attractive, mulling over a few factors is important. After reading this article, you'll be able to know whether you need a car loan or not. 

How Do Car Loans from Banks Work?

A car loan is a financing option for buying a car by borrowing money from a lender. With a car loan, you can pay for the car upfront and then repay the loan over time with added interest. Usually, a car loan agreement details the loan amount, interest rate, repayment period, and monthly payments you must make. Car loans are often secured or unsecured, depending on the agreement.

A secured auto loan is a specific kind that needs collateral or an asset to secure the loan. In this case, the car itself serves as collateral. If the borrower fails to repay the loan as agreed, the lender can seize the car to offset the loan amount. Secure car loans often have lower interest rates and more flexible repayment periods because the lender has collateral to rely on.

On the other hand, there is no need for collateral for an unsecured vehicle loan. Instead, lenders look at their creditworthiness, income, and credit score to evaluate if a borrower is eligible for a loan. Unsecured auto loans without collateral typically have higher interest rates and lower borrowing amounts. 

What are the Requirements to Get a Car Loan?

One can apply through banks, credit unions, online lenders, and car dealerships that offer financing options to get a car loan. Lenders evaluate your credit history and financial circumstances during the loan application to determine eligibility and interest rates.

Once the loan application is approved, you will sign a contract that outlines the loan terms, giving you access to the funds to purchase the vehicle. Repaying the loan requires you, as a borrower, to make regular payments until the total loan amount is repaid.

Top 3 Car Loan Benefits

Securing a car loan is a standard financing option if you need a personal car. Whether in demand for a new car or considering your financial options, read on to discover how a car loan could work to your advantage.

1. Forgiving to Bad Credit

While a poor credit history might make securing a car loan challenging, it's possible. Having an excellent credit score is unnecessary to obtain car finance.

A bank may not approve a personal loan application for someone with less-than-perfect credit, but a borrower has a higher chance of being accepted for car finance. People with questionable credit could apply for a car loan with flexible repayment options to ease their car loan struggles. 

2. No Extra Collateral Worries

When you take out a car loan, you typically don't need to provide additional collateral. That's because the car itself is considered the collateral for the loan. Suppose you're unable to make the payments. The lender has the right to take possession of the car instead of demanding other assets from you.

Since cars are valuable assets, lenders can offer favorable loan terms without requiring you to provide additional collateral. This makes it easier to access financing and purchase the car you want. So, the car serves as security, allowing lenders to offer attractive loan terms that don't require additional assets. 

3. Car Loans Improve Credit History

Getting a car through financing is a great way to improve a bad credit score. Regularly paying the installments over time, borrowers like you can show lenders that you are responsible with money. This builds trust and increases the chance of getting loans with better terms in the future.

Paying back a car loan shows the borrower can commit to a financial agreement, which lenders love. This can lead to lower monthly payments and more trust from lenders without requiring additional collateral.

Top 3 Disadvantages of Financing a Car

Applying for a car loan has tons of advantages. However, there are some drawbacks that you need to learn before doing so. 

1. Fees and Interest

One of the drawbacks of taking out a car loan is the interest and fees. Financing a car means, as a borrower, you incur an expense to obtain the loan. Non-compliance with the loan's terms and conditions could lead to additional costs. Late payments could negatively impact one's credit score and, in extreme cases, result in the repossession of the vehicle.

2. Variable-Rate Car Loan

A variable-rate car loan has a potential drawback—increasing interest rates during the loan period. Factors like inflation rates and market conditions influence the unwanted increase. Due to this unpredictability, your monthly payments may take more from your wallet. As a borrower, you may fall short of the required monthly payment, leading to loan default.

With this, you must budget effectively with a variable-rate loan. This involves careful financial planning to ensure that you can fulfill your monthly payment obligations. You should carefully evaluate the risks and benefits of a variable-rate car loan and align it with your financial goals and lifestyle.

3. Upside-Down Car Loan

Your car begins to lose value immediately after driving off the dealer's lot. The depreciation might lead to a situation where you owe more on your car loan than the car's actual worth. Several factors influence depreciation, including the car model, year, and mileage.

Owing more on your auto loan than what the vehicle is worth can cause problems when you want to upgrade to a newer model. This situation is called 'upside down' on your car loan. To avoid this, select a durable car with a high resale value within your budget.

Applying for a Car Loan Needs Considerations

Getting a car loan can be a viable option if you want to purchase a car but need more funds. However, consider the interest rates, fees, monthly payments, and the possibility of defaulting and losing your vehicle to repossession. Understanding these financial implications is crucial since they might affect you in the long run.
