Getting a joint car loan can be very beneficial depending on individual incomes and credit scores. If both the borrower and co-borrower have good credit and a healthy, reliable income, then together they could qualify for a larger auto loan and a lower interest rate. However, it can be a difficult process to remove a co-borrower from the loan if that becomes necessary in the future.

Can you lie about your age to get a car loan?
I'm 17 and I really want a car, but I'll have to get a loan to buy one. I tried to apply for a loan, but they told me I couldn't because I'm not 18. Are there any potential consequences for lying about your age on a loan application?
