Before you dive into the new or used car loan or a new car lease for the Chrysler, Ford, Honda, or Jeep that's caught your eye, it's important to be sure that you know all of your options first--and not just new vs used or by vs lease.
Every step in the financing process is essential for making sure that you can feel confident about your decisions.
Before you open a line of credit for a loan, you have three basic options:
- Pre-qualify for financing
- Get pre-approved for financing
- Apply for financing at the dealership
