“As the name implies, a loan-to-value ratio is how much the loan amount is divided by the cash value of the vehicle.
A good loan-to-value ratio is 100% or less. This means that you won’t be upside-down when you finally sign for a car loan.
In most cases, the maximum loan-to-value ratio you can have to get approval is 125% to 130%. Any more than that, and you’re likely to get declined.”
