What Does It Mean to Finance a Car? How Do I Apply?

Few people in today's uncertain economy can afford to pay for a new car, truck, or SUV with the upfront cash required. However, you have many financing options available at Yankee Ford to help make it more affordable. When you finance a car, you sign a contract stating how much you owe and how much you intend to pay per month until the car loan is paid in full. Your monthly car payments can fluctuate depending on how many years you'll have to pay off your loan and interest as specified by the car loan terms. Your lender determines the interest rate on your car loan according to your credit score and history. Yankee Ford strives to make applying for car financing quick and easy. You can now fill out our online financing application to see if you're approved for credit from the comfort of your own home.

Feel free to ask us any questions you may have regarding how to finance a car at our dealership. Yankee Ford takes your privacy concerns very seriously. Rest assured we'll never rent or sell any of your personal information to third parties without your explicit consent. Read our privacy policy before submitting your financing application or any inquiries to our dealership. 

Is There a Difference Between Car Loans & Car Leasing?

If you intend to pay off your new vehicle within the next few years by making monthly car payments, a car loan is probably the right option for you. However, if you're the type of person who prefers to test-drive all of the latest makes and models, swapping out your ride every so often, you may want to consider car leasing. Car leasing allows you to also make monthly car payments in exchange for driving the vehicle according to the lease specifications, which usually limit the amount of mileage you can put on it. The primary reason people consider car leasing over financing is it may give them the ability to drive a newer vehicle without having to pay for the ownership of it. In some cases, car leasing may be the best short-term financing option for your needs.

Will I Qualify for Car Financing If I Have Bad or No Credit?

No credit? No problem! Even if you have bad credit, car financing is possible at Yankee Ford thanks to our cultivated relationships with many of the area's leading car loan companies. Even if you've been turned down elsewhere, we'll work with you to help you secure a car loan according to your unique situation. Low-interest car loans may also be available for customers with existing car loans. Sit down with a member of our knowledgeable finance team to see if you qualify for refinancing your car loan to adjust the terms of your contract. When you come to Yankee Ford's dealership, you're one step closer to car financing approval and driving away in your dream car, truck, or SUV. We also have an online credit estimator, so you can get an estimate of your credit score before you visit us.
