How do car loans work?

We’re here to help you find the right Credit Union Car Loan for you. You have three things to consider when you’re trying to understand how motor vehicle loans work:

  • The loan amount: Know how much you will need to borrow and how much you can afford to put toward a down payment.
  • The APR: Your Annual Percentage Rate can vary based on credit and other qualifications, but a lower APR saves you money.
  • The loan term: While a longer loan term can lower your payment, it can also mean that you end up paying a lot more interest over time.

You’ll want to look for the right balance of term length and loan amount, plus the best APR you can find. This will help you achieve a payment you can afford each month and avoid paying more than you need to in the long run.

Your success is our bottom line, and that means finding the right car and right Credit Union Car Loan for you. At Mission Fed, we make it easy to purchase the vehicle you want with our Auto Loans in San Diego.
