How Does Financing a Car Work?

When you’re interested in a new or used Toyota vehicle, you would apply for the loan through our dealership, your local bank, or a credit union. The application can be started online, or you can fill out the application at our dealership. There are a few things the lender will look at:

  • Credit Score
  • Loan Amount
  • Length of Loan
  • Debt-to-Income Ratio
  • Age of the Vehicle

Choose Your Lender

After getting the approval with your auto loan, you can do a comparison to see whether Frontier Toyota, your local bank, or credit union has the best rates. Consider how much you can put down for a down payment, as well as what you can afford in monthly payments so you know if you can comfortably afford the monthly payments. Consider whether you can pay off your car loan early, too!

Finalize the Loan Terms

It’s time to finalize the loan terms! This is when you are going to negotiate on the price until you and the salesman both agree on a loan and interest rate. Then you sign the paperwork and drive home to the Lancaster area in your dream Toyota car, truck, or SUV!
