Car Loan Questions To Ask The Dealership

One of the best advice to have in consideration if you are about to make the decision of purchasing a car is to be absolutely sure that it is actually within your budget.

At Mercedes-Benz of Beaumont when it comes to car loans, we excel to make the process as easy and transparent as possible; that is why we strive to provide you with the information you need to have a basic understanding of the overall process to get the car you are looking for, reducing any fear or frustration along the way.

Auto Loan Questions To Ask The Dealership

1: I’m A First Time Car Buyer, Do I Need A Co-Signer?

Co-signers are not mandatory for first-time car buyers. It really all depends on your credit history and income. That said, it’s never a bad idea to have someone in mind as a co-signer in case you do need one

2: Should I Apply For A Car Loan Before or After Picking Out A Car?

The answer to this question really depends on whether you want to be pre-approved for a specific dollar amount or if you’re looking for financing on your dream car. Whichever you prefer, the dealership financing team is ready to help you throughout the financing process.

3: Can I Get Approved For A Car Loan If I’m Self-Employed or 1099?

Absolutely! If you are self-employed or an independent contractor (a ‘1099 employee’), all you’ll need to bring as proof of employment is the last three months’ of bank statements, the last two years of income tax returns, and your government issued ID.

4: Can I Get A Car Loan After A Repo?

You may be surprised by this answer, but in most cases, it is possible to get approved for another car loan after you’ve had a repossession. You’ll most likely need a co-signer or a substantial down payment but there are always options for auto loan approval, even after a repossession. For more details, speak to the dealership’s financing manager.

5: Can I Get Approved For A Second Car Loan?


While it is certainly not impossible to get more than one car loan, there are several factors lenders look for when considering financing two or more vehicles at a time:

  • Your credit history
  • Your debt to income ratio
  • Whether you have a cosigner
  • How long you have had your current car loan

For more details, we recommend contacting the dealership financing manager to discuss specifics unique to your circumstances.

Conclusion:

By following and learning the answers to these question about auto loans, you’ll be set to make the best financial decision to get the car and loan that cover your expectations. It doesn’t harm to be prepared whenever you’re ready to buy a car.
