When shoppers are looking for a new car in Tuttle, they always hope to secure a great deal. Which leaves those who are car loan shopping pondering one question: “Where is the best place to get a car loan?” Today we will explore that topic and what your options are when looking for a car loan around Oklahoma City.

Car Loan Shopping

If you are wondering where to get a car loan, you have two main options when car loan shopping:

  • The dealership where you’re purchasing your vehicle
  • Your bank

These options both offer their own benefits for car buyers.

Car Loans From a Dealership

One of the best places to get a car loan is the dealership where you plan to purchase your car. Getting an auto loan at the dealership can offer benefits like:

  • A dealership can help determine if leasing vs. buying is right for you.
  • At a dealership, you get access to a variety of lenders.
  • With multiple lenders are competing for your business, you may get a better rate
  • Applying is easy, you only need to fill out one form to get multiple options.
  • Some dealerships work with those with no or bad credit
  • The dealership may offer financing incentives.
  • You may be able to negotiate your down payment when financing with the dealership.

Car Loans From Your Bank

When first thinking about a loan, your bank may be the first place that comes to mind. Know that if you have less-than-perfect credit, you will have a harder time getting a loan with a bank. In addition, talking to your dealership before signing up for a bank loan could get you a better deal, since dealerships work with a variety of lenders. Despite this, there are some benefits, including:

  • There are often set interest rates
  • You have a pre-existing relationship with your bank
  • You might be able to set a flexible payment schedule
