There are two key steps in the pre-qualification process of financing a new car. First, use a car loan calculator to determine your budget. Determine how much you're willing to spend each month on a car payment and how many years you want to have the financing arrangement for. The calculator will then tell you "how much car" you can buy at different interest rates. Once you have this total in mind, you can start shopping for models and options that fit comfortably in your budget.
Once you've narrowed down your options and you have a good idea of what you're looking for, you can get pre-qualified or pre-approved for your car loan. During this process, you fill out a simple application. Our team will then tell you how much you're potentially approved for, what interest rates you qualify for, and other details. This puts you one step closer to driving away in your new car! It also confirms what you calculated earlier, so you can zero in on your favorite car with more confidence.
You also don't have to wait until you've found your perfect car to get pre-qualified. You can get pre-qualified at any time so you can shop, test drive, and make your choice while knowing exactly what your options are. Our financing application process requires no obligation.
Helpful Tips for the Pre-Qualification Process
Pre-qualifying for car financing is simple, but there are a few steps you can take to make the process more enjoyable and end up with the car you prefer. Try these tips:
- Always apply for financing through your dealership. Even if you've already applied through your bank or credit union, our dealership can offer you competitive options and may even be able to offer a lower interest rate.
- Know your monthly budget ahead of time. We want to help you get a car that fits comfortably in your ideal spending range. If you know how much you want to spend every month on your car payment, it will be easier for you to find the flexible terms that make that monthly amount possible.
- Know the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval. Pre-qualification processes need a "soft" credit pull that doesn't affect your credit score. You can use your pre-qualification results early in the shopping process, especially if you're taking your time. A pre-approval process may require a "hard" pull on your credit score, so you can reserve this step until you're closer to making a purchase.
When you decide to buy another vehicle, whether it's used or new, you want to work with a dealership that has a finance center that you can trust. Below, we'll explain what the Meadowland GMC finance center has to offer and the benefits you’ll get from choosing us.
What You Get at the Meadowland GMC Finance Center
Through the Meadowland GMC finance center, you can get your next vehicle through two primary forms of payment. These are the following:
An auto loan is when you take out a credit to pay for your new vehicle purchase. When you use an auto loan to purchase a vehicle, you become the owner. You make payments on it each month until you pay it off after a few years. Auto loans are a great option if you plan to have the vehicle for many years and if you can get a good interest rate.
In addition, auto loans are the only way to get a vehicle that's more than a year old unless you have enough cash to pay for the vehicle outright. Here at the Meadowland GMC finance center, we can thoroughly discuss the pros and cons of using an auto loan to help you make a better decision.
The other option you have is to lease a new vehicle. When you lease a vehicle, you're essentially agreeing to borrow it for a few years and make payments towards its depreciation. At the end of the lease, you can either return the vehicle and get something else or purchase it based on the remaining value.
Leases are a great option if you want to drive the latest vehicle every few years. Also, since you're driving a newer vehicle, you're less likely to need costly repairs. Leases can also have more affordable monthly payments, which can make them a more attractive option over a loan. The finance department at Meadowland GMC can discuss potential lease terms with you and help you decide if a lease is right for you.
Benefits of Working With the Meadowland GMC Finance Center
There are a few benefits to working with the finance department at Meadowland GMC specifically. These include the following:
Through our website, you can quickly get pre-approved for an auto loan. This can save you time at the dealership and gives you a better sense of the type of loan you can get based on your financial history. Our online finance application only takes a couple of minutes and can provide you with some valuable information when you're shopping for your next vehicle.
Many people incorrectly believe that their credit score will prevent them from getting an auto loan. If you’ve missed a few payments in the past, or if your credit score dropped for some other reason, then you may believe that a good loan is out of reach. However, the team at Meadowland GMC can help just about anyone gets a reasonable auto loan. We have plenty of experience in helping people with less-than-ideal credit scores secure reasonable auto loan terms. No matter your credit score, contact our finance department, and we'll see what we can do for you.
Online Car Loan Calculator
Another significant benefit to working with the Meadowland GMC finance department is our online loan calculator. When you're browsing potential vehicles, you may be unsure of what you can afford. With this online calculator, you can enter in information about any vehicle that interests you and see what sort of monthly payment you can expect. Try out different loan terms, interest rates, and vehicle amounts until you find a monthly payment that works for your financial situation.
Kelley Blue Book Trade-in Value Tool
If you plan on trading in your current vehicle to help pay for your next one, then you're probably wondering how much you can get for it. Through the Meadowland GMC website, you can use our Kelley Blue Book trade-in value tool to get an instant offer. With this tool, you simply enter in information about your vehicle and receive an offer moments later.
If you like the offer, you can bring the vehicle to us and, pending an evaluation by our team, receive your payment. You can also use your estimated trade-in value when calculating your approximate monthly payments on our loan calculator, making it easier to see what you can afford.
