How is a Used Auto Loan Different from a New Auto Loan?

At the most basic level, a used auto loan is the same as a new auto loan: you borrow money at a set rate and term to purchase the vehicle of your choice. Due to depreciation, used vehicles have a lower purchase price than new cars of a similar make and model, but the age and mileage of a used vehicle accounts for many of the differences between a new auto loan and a used auto loan.

  1. Depending on the term, the rate may be a bit higher for a used auto loan, especially for older or higher-mileage vehicles.
  2. Many used vehicles do not have any warranty coverage left, but you may be able to purchase an extended warranty at the time of closing on your used auto loan.
  3. Depending on the age of the vehicle, the available loan term may be shorter than for a new vehicle.

How Does a Used Auto Loan Work?

A used auto loan works in the same manner as a loan for a new vehicle. While the process can vary slightly depending on your credit history, in general the process to purchase a used vehicle with a used auto loan follows these steps:

  1. Pre-approval: Applying before you shop helps you understand the price range that you can afford, based on an estimated monthly payment.
  2. Shop: Search for the vehicle of your choice and negotiate the purchase price.
  3. Loan closing and funding: Submit the purchase price and vehicle details to the lender to finalize the loan so that the funds can be provided to the seller.
  4. Repayment: Begin making loan payments based on the loan agreement.
  5. Title: The title will be held by the lender until the loan is paid off. Once you have fulfilled the loan obligation, the lender will send you the title showing the lien has been released.

Need a little more information?

Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

At PenAir Credit Union, there are three ways to apply for an auto loan: an online application, by phone when you call 850.505.3200, or in person at your local branch.

Many experts recommend putting at least 20% down on a new car (just like a mortgage) and 10% on a used car. But if you can pay more upfront, that could lower your monthly payments down the road (see what we did there?).
