Do I really have to pay monthly?
To ensure that you are able to make your payments, we do insist that you make regular payments on your financing. We will work with you to find a payment schedule that works best for you, but you will pay the same amount in sum regardless of the frequency. As such, it’s probably a better idea to have manageable regular payments than daunting large lump sums due.
How are car payments calculated?
Three things can affect car payments (in order of importance):
- Amount financed
- Term or duration of contract
- Annual Percentage Rate (APR)O
Our dealership offers competitive rates with a variety of finance companies to fit nearly every budget and credit profile.
How should I budget for car payments?
The rule of thumb according to most financial institutions is to spend no more than 15% of your gross monthly income for your car payments. For example, if you make $2,000 per month, you should spend no more than $300 for your car payments. Monthly payments tend to range from $20 - $25 per $1,000 financed.
Should I finance or lease?
If you prefer to drive a new, warrantied vehicle all the time, then that's the advantage of leasing. If you prefer to build up equity and drive one car for a long time, then go with financing. There are all sorts of factors to consider when choosing between these two options. Our Finance Experts can help find the best option for you during a free consultation.
Can I qualify for financing with my first purchase?
Many of our customers can qualify for financing with their first vehicle purchase. If a standard credit determination cannot be made based on your current credit history, you can still qualify for other programs, like ones for recent college graduates. Stipulations for college students vary. Check with one of our Finance Experts for additional information. Contact us today!
