How To Get Preapproved For Your Auto Loan

Aug 18, 2007
Before you ever go to look at any cars, you may want to get a preapproved auto loan. This is an excellent way to save some money when you go to get your next car - or even your first one. Here are some tips that will show you how to get a preapproved auto loan and some great savings.

The first thing that you want to do is to get a current copy of your credit report and look it over. Mistakes can be made on some of the information reported on it and you want to eliminate them before you apply. Take time to examine it carefully and take the necessary steps to have mistakes corrected properly. Remember that the lender will base the interest rate on your loan from the credit bureaus. Incorrect information could prevent you from even getting a loan, or could place you into a higher interest rate for your loan. Having too much debt in relation to your income could also place you into higher interest rates, too.

The next thing would be to shop around for your preapproved auto loan. This means getting quotes from a few lenders and choosing the one that is the best. To do this online, you will need to go to a broker's Web site - one where you will get back quotes from several lenders with one application. It won't take long to get back your quotes.

Once you accept a lender's quote, a blank check will then be sent to you. A credit limit will also be set, and you can write the check to the car dealer for the amount of the car. This check is good for a limited time - some may be good for two months. Even though you receive the check, there is no actual loan being given - until you use it.

Knowing just how much you have to be able to spend before you start looking for that car enables you to stay within your budget better. You will also know all the details about your loan that a car dealer may be less reluctant to share with you if you get financing through them.

Taking this preapproved auto loan check to the dealer will quickly give you an edge in your negotiations with them. Since there will be no question as to your real interest in buying a car, you can get better prices because they like money right away. They also know that you are serious about buying a car, too.

In order to use that preapproved auto loan check in the best way possible, though, you should not buy immediately. Once you find a car or two that you are interested in, take a little time to go online and find out both the value of the car, and how much you can get one for in your area. Someone may be selling it for less than the dealer. Having this knowledge will enable you to go back to the dealer, show him the better offer, and watch them bring their price down to match it, or make it even lower.

Don't forget that you can sweeten your deal more by putting some money down or by trading in your old vehicle. Learn about how to make good deals with car dealers beforehand and you can be sure to drive away with one of those great deals all with a preapproved auto loan.
