How to Refinance a Car Loan

If you’re trying to get your monthly payments lowered, then refinancing is a great strategy. But, how do you refinance a car loan? You’ll find that the process is relatively straightforward and easy to do. Learn how to refinance a car loan the proper way with the finance center at Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy, and see how you can get the best rates possible on a vehicle for your Hannibal, MO commute.



What to Know When Refinancing Your Car

How do you refinance a car loan? First thing’s first, you’ll need to have a basic idea of where you stand on finances, and you’ll need to know some things about your current vehicle. Here are some things to know:

  • Be sure you don’t owe more on your vehicle than what your vehicle is currently worth. This will make it harder to get approved for financing.
  • If your vehicle is significantly older and has experienced a lot of depreciation, then it will be harder to get financing from lenders.
  • Check with your original lender to see if there are any penalty fees associated with paying off your car loan early.

Ultimately, here’s what to know when refinancing your car: is refinancing the right move for you? If you have underwater finances on your car or if your car is significantly older, then it might not be financially advantageous to refinance. Visit Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy near Keokuk, IA to explore your options. To calculate your auto loan interest rates, rely on the experts at Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy.

Best Ways to Refinance an Auto Loan

Before you begin refinancing to lower your payments, you’ll first need to know what you’re currently paying. You can find this number by reviewing your monthly statements or by contacting your lender. Once you have that information, you can proceed with the following:

  • If you have a higher credit score, then you’ll have a better chance of getting approved for financing. Check your credit score to know where you stand with credit.
  • Apply to more than one refinancing company to try and get the best rate. To avoid a negative impact on your credit score, try applying within 14 days.
  • Compare offers you get from different lenders to see which offer is the most affordable for you. Use our payment calculator at Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy to get an estimate on what you’ll pay each month.
  • Choose your loan term. A longer term means lower payments with higher interest. A shorter term means higher payments with lower interest.

One of the best ways to refinance an auto loan is to compare many different offers and pick the offer that fits your current circumstances. Apply for financing online to save time at the dealership, and then visit Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy near Pittsfield to find the financing option that works for you.
