If you're looking to purchase a car using an auto loan, here is some information that can help you navigate through the paperwork.

What Is Car/Auto Financing?

When you finance a vehicle, the financial institution you are affiliated with lends you money as an installment loan. The automobile lenders earn income through charging you interest on the auto loan and for any processing fees associated with the loan. The vehicle itself acts as a kind of collateral for the finance company, giving them the authority to repossess the car if payments are not made in a timely manner.

How Do Car/Auto Loans Work?

Financial institutions will lend to the consumer a secured auto loan. Secured loans are secure because they are backed by some form of collateral, such as a car. This means that if you fail to make your monthly payment for the loan term, the financial institution can repossess the car and sell it.

How Can I Save Money on an Auto Loan?

Saving on auto loans can get more complicated than you might think. Opting to make lower monthly installments can seem like the best choice, but over time costs you more. Other factors influencing the loans you may get offered include your personal credit score. If you have a poor credit score, getting an excellent offer tends to be more difficult.

Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to help ensure you get the best auto loan possible. Choosing a lender like New Roads Auto Loans that specializes in bad credit auto loans with zero down payment requirements can help you save big as you're rebuilding your credit score.

How Can I Reduce Interest Charges on My Auto Loan?

Interest is the fee that you pay as a borrower for the loan. The lower the interest rate is, the less you end up paying as time goes on. Principal is the amount that you will have left once the interest on the loan is paid. You can reduce interest rates by paying on your loan for about 18 months. After 18 months and a good payment history you may look to refinance for a lower interest rate. You can also increase the frequency of payments which will over time lower the length of the loan, thus lowering the amount of interest you will pay.

In most cases, the longer the loan term is, the more interest you'll pay. Still, it is important to keep in mind that you can potentially pay less on a monthly basis for your car with a longer loan term length because the principle balance you borrowed is spread out over more months. If you ever want to refinance your car, it is crucial that you understand both interest rates and loan terms and how they affect one another.

How Do Taxes Affect the Auto Loan Interest?

Once you have purchased a car, you get charged taxes based on the car's price. This means that the taxes you owe for the vehicle is added straight to the loan. The taxes you pay do not increase the interest rate for the loan. Sometimes, however, the taxes may increase the overall loan balance.

What Does APR Mean on an Auto Loan?

APR is the Annual Percentage Rate you have to pay for your loan or credit line each year. For auto loans, this accounts for interest charges as well as other fees. This rate will be higher than your interest rate (aka note rate) quoted on your loan paperwork.

How Do Car Loans Affect Car Insurance?

When you are paying for a financed car, most lenders will require you to have adequate coverage for car insurance. This car insurance will, on average, include comprehensive coverage and collision coverage. Check your own state's requirements, however, to make sure it properly covers you.

How Do Down Payments Affect Your Car Loan?

Down payments are the initial payment you make to pay off your vehicle. The larger the down payment you make, the less you will need to borrow. However, we understand that a down payment may not be feasible for individuals with bad credit or have filed for bankruptcy, so most of our auto loans do not require a down payment.

What Are Car Loan Terms?

This is the amount of time you will be paying back your loan, expressed in months. Typically, loan terms can be from three to seven years depending on the lender and your budget. While a long-term loan can save you money on your monthly payments, you will end up paying more in interest over the loan's lifespan, so go with shorter loan terms whenever possible.

How and When Do You Pay Car Loan Interest?

The best way to pay the car loan interest is by setting up direct payments with your bank or banks. This way, the money gets automatically debited from your account each month, ensuring that you never miss a payment. You can set the direct payments to leave your account bi-weekly or monthly.
