What do lenders look at when you refinance a vehicle?

"What do lenders look at when they're refinancing a vehicle? I'm thinking about refinancing my car, but I'm not sure how the process works."

“The refinancing process is markedly similar to the buying process.
As a result, the lender will look at:
  • Credit report
  • Debt-to-income ratio
  • Verification of income and employment
  • All relevant personal information
It’s always a good idea to be aware of your credit before applying for a new loan or refinancing. You can monitor your credit using the Credit Karma app.”
