Car Loan Shopping

If you’ve been wondering wondering where to get a car loan, the two main options you’ll have are either:

  • The dealership where you’re purchasing your vehicle
  • Your bank

Both of these options offer different benefits when car loan shopping. But the best place to get a car loan will depend on several factors.

Car Loans From a Dealership

One of the best places to get a car loan is right at our dealership near New Albany! Benefits when choosing in-house financing include: 

  • Dealers can help you choose between buying and leasing. 
  • Dealerships work with a variety of lenders to get you the best deal, essentially doing the car loan shopping for you. 
  • You can apply for financing online.
  • If you have bad credit or no credit, certain dealers will be more likely to approve you.
  • Dealerships may offer certain auto finance incentives.
  • You may have more wiggle room when negotiating with a car dealer. 

Car Loans From Your Bank

When deciding on where to get a car loan, you might think of trying your local bank around Clarksville first. If you have less-than-perfect credit, banks will be less likely to approve you. However, if you have good credit, then the best place to get auto financing might be a bank:

  • If you have a pre-existing credit relationship with your bank, you will likely get a very competitive rate
  • Often times, there are fixed interest rates that may help you save
  • You may be able to have a flexible payment schedule
