“You should get a folder with all the documents in it, but go through it to make sure the following documents are in there:
  • Copy of the loan contract, which will include all payment information, covenants, and car insurance required on the loan
  • Car invoice, including all relevant fees and taxes
And that’s usually it. You might get some additional documents, such as a coupon book for payments, letters from the lender, or other offers.”
