Can I decline a car loan for a Volkswagen Tiguan I was approved for?
"My boyfriend and I applied for a car loan on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, but then we moved to an area with great public transportation.
Can we decline this car loan?"
“Just give the lender a call and tell them the situation. This happens all the time, so they won’t mind.
Remember, though, that the hard inquiry on your credit will remain—for about a year—on your credit regardless of accepting or declining the loan. But don’t worry, it won’t have long-lasting effects on your credit score.”

If I default on a car loan, how does it affect my cosigner?
If I default on my loan, will it affect my cosigner? I have a silent cosigner; my uncle cosigned with the idea that he'd never have to hear about it if I'm responsible. All of a sudden, I can't pay my car loan and I'm worried it will affect my uncle's credit score. Help!
