Car Loans and How They Work

An auto loan is financing to help you buy a new or used car. Sounds simple, but with a purchase as big as a vehicle, there’s a lot to know. Learn how about the types of car loans available, common auto loan terms, and how to determine how much car you can afford.

Buying a Car

Purchasing a vehicle can be complicated and sometimes a little confusing. There’s a lot to learn and you’ll have a lot of questions. Should I buy or lease a vehicle? Is it better to buy a new or used car? How do auto loans work? What are my financing or refinancing options? How do I choose the right vehicle for me?

This short course will cover things to know before you buy a car. It will help you determine how much car you can afford, different ways to finance your car, and what you need to know about the auto loan process.
