Auto Loan Financing
Are you considering buying a car, but unsure how you'll pay for it?
According to the Federal Trade Commission, the average price of a new car is over $31,000.
Auto loans are a popular way to distribute that cost over time, but it’s important to understand how interest and loan terms affect your monthly payments.
Take our short Financial Empowerment program on Vehicle Loans to learn the facts about:
- Financing options
- Fixed and variable interest rates
- Monthly payment calculations
Buying New vs. Used
The decision whether to purchase a new or used vehicle can be a tough one. It comes down to what you want and how much you can afford.
Buying a new vehicle has many advantages, including getting the vehicle exactly as you want it, obtaining a full manufacturer’s warranty, and having little if anything to worry about when it comes to repairs.
However, buying used can be a better choice, especially if your budget is limited. There are many late model vehicles on the market with some of the manufacturer’s warranty remaining.
Two questions to answer before buying a used car:
1) Is it in good mechanical shape?
2) Is it priced fairly?
At VacationLand FCU, we urge you to have any used vehicle you’re considering buying checked by a qualified mechanic. The charge is minimal, usually $50 to $100, and includes checking all the vehicle’s major systems: engine, transmission, electrical, heating, cooling and brakes.
Fair market value of the vehicle can be determined easily by consulting any reputable pricing guide on the Internet or here at the credit union.
Whether you decide to buy a new or used vehicle, VacationLand Federal Credit Union urges you to carefully consider all the pros and cons before visiting car lots or dealerships.
When you’re ready to buy, we’ll be ready to help with reasonable finance terms and competitive rates.
