Dealer Finance Plans vs. Bank Auto Financing

When you’re ready for a new vehicle and have to find an auto loan, you can turn to a dealer finance center or pursue bank auto financing. Both options have some benefits, though dealer finance centers can provide a wider range of offers and the ability to negotiate.

Why Finance at a Dealer Finance Center?

A dealer finance center is an easy option, as it’s right at the dealership lot. While that could be enough to sway your decision, there are other reasons to consider financing at your dealership: 

  • Leasing & Financing- For some shoppers, it may make more sense to lease vs. buy your vehicle, and you can do both at a dealer finance center. 
  • Mileage/Age Restrictions- When it comes to used cars, buyers can have their options limited with a bank. That’s because banks often have age and mileage limits for their auto loans. 
  • Easy Application- With a dealership, one online application gives you access to a network of lenders. With bank auto financing, you’ll have to complete multiple applications to get multiple offers. 
  • Credit Issues- Buyers with credit issues will find that some dealerships specialize in working with those with credit issues. 
  • Room to Negotiate- Finance at a dealership, and you’ll have room to negotiate other costs- like your down payment. 
  • Special Financing Offers- Dealerships often have special finance offers available that you can only take advantage of if you go through them. 

Should You Consider Bank Auto Financing?

Banks offer some advantages for shoppers as well. For instance, some buyers may feel comfortable with their bank, as they have already formed a relationship with them. Banks can also set their internal rates. Still, you may find a dealer finance center can offer you a better interest rate and terms, so it’s always worth comparing your offers.
