How Does Auto Financing at Team KIA of El Cajon Work?

Here at Team KIA of El Cajon, we provide you with the option to use our in-house financing so you can easily and quickly get the funding you need to buy your new vehicle. When you use our in-house financing options, you'll need to do the following:

  1. Provide us with some basic information about yourself, and tell us how much money you would like to borrow to purchase a used or new Kia
  2. Give us time to process your information and perform a credit check to determine how much money you qualify to borrow.
  3. Review the loan terms provided to you, including the loan amount, annual percentage rate, monthly payments, and repayment period. 
  4. Decide whether you'd like to accept our offer. 
  5. Use the loan to buy the used or new vehicle of your dreams. 

At the end of the process, it's important to determine how you plan to pay your car loan back. You'll need to make a monthly repayment over a particular period to pay down your loan balance. 

You can use our auto finance calculator to see how much your monthly repayments might be.  

Factors That Affect Your Financing

Several factors determine whether you can secure auto financing, and it's crucial to understand what they are and how they can impact your financing options. These factors include:

  • Your debt-to-income ratio or of anyone signing on the car loan.
  • Your credit score and any cosigner's credit score.
  • The value of any trade-in and any additional money made as a down payment.
  • The loan term, with a shorter loan term providing a lower overall cost and a longer loan having lower monthly costs. 

Can I Get Auto Financing at Team KIA of El Cajon With Bad Credit?

Most banks aren't willing to roll the dice on individuals with poor credit when they apply for auto loans. This is because they see these borrowers as being too risky. Therefore, they deny loan requests from these borrowers more often than from individuals with good or fair credit scores. 

That being said, you should know that at Team Kia of El Cajon, we'll try our very best to help you get approved for auto financing. Our dealership is more than willing to work with individuals with poor credit to help them get the money they need to purchase a used or new car. 

We'd love to speak with you more about your car finance needs so that we can help you work out the right solution to your vehicle purchasing aspirations.
