How Does a Secured Car Loan Work?

Signing loan agreement
When it’s time to get a loan on your next new or certified pre-owned car, a secured loan may be the way to go. But before you sign, Grosse Pointe and St. Clair Shores drivers might have some questions such as “What is a secured auto loan?” or “How does a secured car loan work?” If you find yourself asking these questions, then Jeffrey Kia is your source to all things automotive finance. Let’s take a closer look at secure loans and how they can be a good option when purchasing your next Kia model.

What is a Secured Auto Loan and How Does it Work?

For Sterling Heights drivers looking to know what a secured auto loan is, it is a specially designed loan that uses collateral — usually the car itself — as security which means the vehicle can be repossessed by the loaner if payments stop. Another important question you might also be wondering: is a car loan a secured loan? This is not always the case, as there are many different loans drivers can choose from.

Once the paperwork is started, you’ll need to provide personal information such as your name, social security number, and information on your current financial situation. A credit check will be necessary in order to be approved. Seeing your credit history combined with your income will help the provider decide whether or not to approve your application as you meet the loan terms, as well as to decide your interest rates. Once your debt-to-income ratio is determined, and if you meet the loan qualifications, you’ll be presented with the fixed rates of your loan.

You can then purchase the vehicle of your choosing and must make regular payments on the vehicle until the loan is paid in its entirety. After the loan is paid off, the vehicle is yours for the keeping. If the car is not paid off, and payments stop, the vehicle will be repossessed.
