How Do You Refinance a Car Loan?

The goal of refinancing your vehicle is to lower the interest rates you are being charged each month. This means that you need to understand what you are currently paying. Contact your lenders or review your documents to confirm your monthly payment and current interest rates. Here is what to know when refinancing your car: 

  • Check Your Credit Score: If you have consistently paid your bills on time since your vehicle has been purchased, be sure to check that your credit score has been improved.
  • Start Applying: Apply to several automotive refinance companies to get the best rates. Make sure to submit all of your application within a 14 day period to minimize your negative impact on your credit score.
  • Evaluate Offers: Take time to make sure that any new offers will get you a reasonably priced monthly payment. Use our monthly payment calculator to help you compare offers. 
  • Decide Loan Term: Decide whether a long term or short term loan is the best option for you. Basically, with a longer loan refinance you will have smaller monthly payments for a longer period of time with larger interest. With a shorter repayment term you will pay larger monthly payments with less interest in total. 

The best way to refinance an auto loan ultimately depends on your lifestyle and your personal finance habits, so be sure to talk with our finance advisors if you have bad credit card debt or are dealing with prepayment penalties.
