Can you have two car loans at one time?
My current daily driver is an old Toyota Camry. However, I do a lot of weekend projects and carrying around plywood in a Camry isn’t easy. I’ve been thinking about purchasing a truck, but can you have two car loans at one time?
Yikes! Trying to fit plywood in a Toyota Camry doesn’t sound like a great time. Fortunately, you can have two car loans at one time. Hopefully, you can use your new truck soon!
While you’re allowed to have two car loans simultaneously, your lender has to approve your second application.
If you have a good credit score, income to support the new loan, and a low debt-to-income ratio, approval isn’t an issue.
Generally speaking, your debt-to-income ratio must be less than 43% for a lender to approve your loan. To calculate your debt-to-income ratio, divide your monthly debt payments by your monthly pre-tax income.
After you purchase the new truck, don’t forget to add it to your auto insurance policy and make sure it has full coverage.
