How to Finance a Used Car: The Facts

In most states, drivers don’t need full coverage insurance to drive off in their next vehicle. However, most finance lenders want to know that their investments are sound, which is why financial investors and banks require full coverage no matter if you purchase a new or used Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

When you get financing, you’ll learn about the term agreements that states how many years you’ll pay the lender before getting the vehicle’s title. So, if you apply for finance and get a loan with a term of 36 months, the lender holds the title as you pay off the loan during that period of time.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car? 

Once you have found your next reliable used Mercedes-Benz vehicle at our dealership near West Bloomfield, you will give our finance department important information so they can get in touch with lenders on your behalf to get the process going. Information that they’ll need includes:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Valid Car Insurance Card
  • Any supporting financial documentation (i.e. last two pay stubs)
  • Any existing vehicle documentation for your current vehicle (if applicable)

After pairing with your lender, we’ll go over the terms and your offer. Other things we’ll discuss include your credit score, which plays a part in your interest rate, how much you can put down as a down payment, and the length of the loan.

You can expect a stress-free experience as we help you find the next car that’s sure to enhance your Southfield commute.
