How are auto finance decisions made?

Financial institutions typically take four major factors into account:

    • Down Payment
    • Vehicle specifics (model, style, age, mileage, and cost)
    • Application information such as income, time at current job, and time at residence
    • Credit history

What does your credit score mean?

Your credit score is designed to help financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Essentially, it’s meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills.

The higher your credit score, the greater your chance of receiving a better financing offer from us. Four contributors to your credit score are:

      • Timeliness of previous and current payments
      • The length of your credit history
      • The type and amount of your debts
      • Your public records

The rule of thumb from most financial institutions is to spend no more than 15% of your gross monthly income on your car payment. For example, if you make $2,000 a month you should spend no more than $300 on your car payment.

What factors impact monthly payment?

Down payment, the amount financed, term (length of contract), and the annual percentage rate (the yearly cost of a loan) all affect the monthly payment.

What documents should I bring?

All buyers should bring a valid government-issued drivers license, a current pay stub, and a void cheque. Because different financing companies may require additional documentation, you will want to contact your Sales Consultant for a complete list of what you will need to buy a car from your Dundas Automotive Sales.
