Auto Loan FAQ
How can being pre-approved help me when I am shopping for a vehicle?
When you are pre-approved for a vehicle loan, you can focus on negotiating the best price when visiting the dealership. This allows you to shop with confidence, knowing you won't end up with high rate financing. Dealers tend to take people with pre-approved financing more seriously because it means you're actively looking for a vehicle ready to do business.
Can I be approved for a vehicle loan and have funds available the same day?
In many cases, you may be approved and funds made available the same day. We understand that sometimes the vehicle-buying process is an urgent matter. Our team will answer your questions and help expedite the vehicle loan application and approval process.
Can I make additional payments and pay off my loan earlier than the original term?
