How to Finance a Used Car: The Facts

Most states don’t require you to drive your vehicle off the Scranton lot with full coverage already in place, no matter if the car is new or used, but it is a good idea. Still, lenders wisely want to ensure their investments are sound. Most car lenders or banks require you to have full coverage on your vehicle regardless of whether it is gently used or new for the duration of the loan.

When financing a vehicle, the term of the agreement states how many years you’ll pay a lender until you receive a title (called term length). This means if you apply for car financing and obtain a loan for a term of 36 months, your lender will hold the car’s title until then. In most cases, full coverage insurance is required during the full term of the finance period.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

When you’ve found your next new or pre-owned INFINITI around Dunmore, you’ll provide some information to the Bennett INFINITI of Wilkes-Barre finance team so that they may contact lenders to begin the car financing process. Some information they may need from you is:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Current Car Insurance Card
  • Any supporting financial documentation (pay stubs or taxes if you’re self-employed)
  • Any existing vehicle documentation for your current vehicle (if you’re trading it in)

The finance specialists at Bennett INFINITI of Wilkes-Barre will explain the terms the lender is offering you in order to finance your used car. Things such as your credit and what you’re able to pay as a down payment on your vehicle will impact the answer to the question, “How many years can you finance a used car?” but generally it is anywhere from two to six years.
