Can I get a 72-month used car loan?

I have my eye on a certified pre-owned Honda CR-V that’s three years old. I want to keep my monthly payments low, so I’m thinking of getting a 72-month car loan. Will lenders offer me a 72-month used car loan?

Answer
Certified pre-owned vehicles are certainly a bargain when you consider depreciation on new cars. Lenders can offer you a 72-month used car loan on the vehicle of your choice. However, you may want to consider other aspects than just a low monthly payment.
While a lower monthly payment can give you more financial flexibility or the ability to pay down high-interest debt, it can also create several issues. Some of the downsides of getting a used car loan for 72 months include:
  • The warranty may run out
  • You’ll pay a ton in interest compared to shorter loans
  • Higher interest rates
  • The resale value of the car may fall drastically
With all of these in mind, think hard before you decide to get a 72-month used car loan. If you still decide it’s the best option, make sure to get the most affordable car insurance by comparing quotes on the Jerry app.
