Car Loan Financing

A lot of people who need to buy a new or used car find themselves in an interesting position.  When the financial markets crashed back in 2008, things changed quickly.  It made getting an auto loan a lot more difficult.  Most families cut back on what they considered “like to have” and held onto their money.  Others just didn’t understand how to get a car that they could afford and ended up with either too high of a monthly car payment or a car that was much more expensive to own than they could afford.

The recession was tough on families.  Millions of people ended up without a job.  Although things have gotten better, they are not where they should be.  Interest rates have dropped and there is an opportunity to improve your transportation situation by getting a current car.

The biggest mistake that many people make when they are trying to get a car loan is that they don’t think realistically about what they can really pay each month.  This is what happens when you let emotions carry you away because the car salesman oversells you on what you need.  So what you need to do is think and plan in advance, before going to the dealership.

The best way to begin the car financing process is to go in with a particular price that you can afford and use a payment calculator to provide you with an estimate of what your maximum out-the-door price should be.  You can then research the cars available at this price which will make your shopping smarter.  You will know ahead of time which vehicles are worth taking home and which ones are either poorly made or overpriced.  This is an essential step.


When it comes to financing a car, it’s most convenient to go online.  If you want to compare rates and terms that best fit your needs, there is no better way to do so than to investigate your options before you go to the dealership.  Without a doubt, you are going to find the most affordable payments on the internet, especially at which does the shopping for you.   With just one application you can get up to four loan offers to choose from.  Enjoy the convenience of doing your financing research online and find out how easy it is to make a good choice that works for you. – 2014 Best of DFW Texas Award

Review of the 2014 Nissan Rogue SL AWD

2014 Nissan Rogue SL AWD 20140715

 If you’re looking for a new family-hauling car, look no further. With an amazing base price of $23,650, you can’t go wrong with buying and financing the 2014 Nissan Rogue with Along with the simple design, you have the option of purchasing the premium package for $1,990 which includes, a panoramic roof, LED headlights, Lane-departure warning, forward collision alert, blind-spot warning system, and moving object detection. Now there was some confusion about the miles per gallon considering EPA says the Nissan Rogue has 28 miles per gallon, but when tested, the car only has 23.1 miles per gallon. Also, the Rogue is available in both two- and three-row configurations. While the second row is spacious enough for the average adult to not be too uncomfortable during the occasional ride around town, the third row is so compact that only small children should sit back there. We enjoy the large assortment of different options available to the buyer, but we don’t like the low horsepower and the gas mileage. See what Motor Trend has to say about this SUV. and Social Media

What Your Interest Rate?

FAQ’s on Interest Rates
The most often asked question we hear from our customers applying for an auto loan or refinance auto loan is, “If I apply what interest rate will I be approved for?” Interesting question with so many answers. First, you have to actually apply before we or any lender would really know. No reputable lender can answer that question without you actually applying and pulling your credit report and credit score.

At we’ve built a tool to help answer this question. Our Interest Rate Estimator tool calculates probable auto loan interest rate outcomes based on four quick questions. This tool returns a range of interest rates from Lowest APR to Highest APR along with the Average APR for your credit type all based on recent data. With this Interest Rate Estimator tool you will have a good understanding of where you stand with us and the many lenders represented on our marketplace lending platform. Additionally we publish our Today’s Lowest Rates chart that provides you with the lowest possible interest rates segmented by loan type and by loan term that you can obtain when applying at

Second most often asked question is, “I know my credit score, what will my interest rate be if I apply?” Credit score also known as FICO score is not indicative or directly related an interest rate. Most lenders today utilize custom score cards, meaning they analyze your application attributes along with your credit report and historical customer behavior data to calculate their own score. This custom score is directly related to the interest rate, loan term and conditions a lender may use to decision your loan. Once again our Interest Rate Estimator takes a similar approach and provides you with a range of possible interest rate outcomes.
