The Auto Secured Loan is Tied Directly To Title

Jan 24, 2008
For most people, cars are usually the second-largest asset people will purchase during their lifetime. And from most of them, they will purchase a car with an auto secured loan. The reason why it is called a secured loan is because the amount you are borrowing to purchase the vehicle is secured by the title of the vehicle. In other words, the title maybe in your name, depending on the source of your auto secured loan, but the lender is listed as the lien holder on the title. The car cannot be sold while you still owe money on the loan.

Your credit history will determine not only the interest rate that you will be charged on the loan, but also how much security the lender will require from you before you get the car. As an example, a person with a perfect credit history may be able to obtain an auto secured loan for the price of the vehicle and the lender will not to consider the depreciation on the vehicle once you have driven it off the car lot.

A person with borderline credit, not bad but not great, will usually have to provide some sort of a down payment to reduce the amount of the auto secured loan to level that will be lower than what the car will be worth as soon as it leaves the lot. On average, this is typically about 70 or 80 percent of the value of the car.

Lenders Will Protect Their Financial Interests

If a borrower should default on the loan, the lender has the right, under the law, to recoup their losses. Normally, if the vehicle is taken back by the lender after a certain amount of time, which will vary from state to state, they can sell the vehicle and any difference between what you owe on the loan, plus reasonable expenses for recovering the vehicle, selling it, along with legal fees and what the vehicles sold for will be your responsibility.

It is a good idea for you to take the time to check the company with which you will be doing business with before you take out an auto secured loan. The Better Business Bureau in your area can give you information about a particular company. If this company has complaints concerning predatory lending practices, perhaps you should look to another lender. A good lender will follow the agreement they made with the customer at the start of the deal.

Unless you're paying cash for the vehicle, chances are you will be like most people, who purchase their car with an auto secured loan. Proceeding with caution is highly advised in making sure that the lending company is legitimate and ethical in its business dealings.
