How to Finance a Used Car: The Facts

In most states, it is not a legal requirement that drivers have full insurance coverage when they leave the lot. However, financiers often require their beneficiaries to acquire insurance coverage to ensure that their investment is sound. This is usually mandated whether you buy new or used. 

When you enter into a financing agreement, the lender will hold the title of your vehicle for the duration of the loan term. If you apply for financing and receive approval, you will gain ownership of your vehicle once your series of monthly bills have been paid. For most, full coverage insurance is contingent upon the full finance term. If you finance a vehicle for 48 months, this would mean your car would have full coverage for the duration of that period. 

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car? 

When one of our premium pre-owned options catches your eye, you can rely on us to handle the logistics. Our team will get to work contacting lenders on your behalf to secure the most favorable possible deal. All we will need from you is the following information:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Valid Car Insurance Card
  • Any supporting financial documentation
  • Any existing vehicle documentation for your current vehicle

Once an advantageous deal is identified, a member of our team will work directly with you to detail each aspect of the agreement. So, how many years can you finance a used car? Factors such as your credit score and down payment amount will impact your terms. Our team can help you gauge the specifics of any deal you intend to sign.
