How Are Auto Finance Decisions Made?

Financial institutions typically take four major factors into account:

  1. Down Payment
  2. Vehicle specifics (model, style, age, mileage, and cost)
  3. Application information such as income, time at current job, and time at residence
  4. Credit history

What Does Your Credit Score Mean?

Your credit score is designed to help financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Essentially, it’s meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills.

The higher your credit score, the greater your chances will be getting financed. Four contributors to your credit score are:

  1. Timeliness of previous and current payments
  2. The length of your credit history
  3. The type and amount of your debts
  4. Your public records

Stipulations for college students vary by finance company. We have great new programs designed and tailored for first time how buyers.

What Finance Rate Can I Get?

Your past credit history, the type of car you’re buying, your down payment, and overall market conditions will all affect the finance rate for which you can qualify.

We offer competitive rates from a variety of finance companies to fit nearly every budget and credit profile.

What Factors Impact Monthly Payment?

Down payment, the amount financed, term (length of contract), and annual percentage rate (the yearly cost of a loan) all affect the monthly payment.

How Much Should I Budget For My Car Payment?

The rule of thumb from most financial institutions is to spend no more than 15% of your gross monthly income on your car payment. For example, if you make $2,000 a month you should spend no more than $300 on your car payment.

What Documents Should I Bring?

All buyers should bring a valid government-issued drivers license, a current pay stub, and a void cheque. Different financing companies may require additional documentation. You may want to ask what is required once a lender has approved your credit application.
