Can I get a car loan for a used Ford F-150 I'm buying from a private seller?

I found a great deal on a Ford F-150 from a private seller, but I don't have the cash to pay for it outright. Can I get a car loan for it?

Yes, you can definitely get a car loan to buy a vehicle from a private seller, and the process is pretty similar to getting a loan for a dealership. You’ll need a steady income and good credit to finance the vehicle.
The major difference is that your interest rate might be far higher than if you bought from a dealership. Dealers guarantee the condition of their used vehicles, while private sellers might not have been so vigilant in their maintenance and upkeep.
You may also face some risks in buying a car from a private seller because there are no guarantees. Therefore, you should always:
If the car passes all the tests, shop around for rates. Keep in mind that you will also need full coverage car insurance to get the loan. To save money on your car insurance, download the Jerry app and compare car insurance rates from dozens of providers to get the best rate possible.
