Most dealerships offer financing either in-house or through a third party, so you can get a car and a loan at the same time. However, it is always a good idea to go into any situation with a plan, and getting pre-approved for a loan can not only make the process of purchasing a car go smoother, it can also give you some leverage for negotiations and save you money in the long run.
When financing a car, do I need to buy the car first or get the loan first?Answered by Car Loans Expert Johnny on December 29, 2020
I've never gotten a car loan before, so I'm not sure how the application process works. Which comes first: Getting the car or the loan?
