4 steps to take before buying a vehicle
If you're thinking of purchasing a new or used vehicle, follow these steps to help streamline the car-buying process and save money along the way:
1) Get preapproved
You may hit the car lots and see the car you've always wanted, but could lose out to someone else because you're not ready to buy. Getting preapproved puts you in the driver's seat so you can buy whenever you're ready. The process is simple and straightforward. Visit a branch, apply online, or call us today to begin your auto loan preapproval.
2) Do the math on 0% rebate offers vs financing with Think
Special dealer financing may be tempting, but it isn't always the best deal. You could save by taking the rebate and financing at Think. Review our current auto loan rates and estimate your savings with our auto rebate calculator.
3) Do your homework on pricing
Whether you're buying a new or used vehicle, you can use our BlackBook vehicle pricing tools to ensure you're getting the best deal. BlackBook updates their dealer invoice and manufacturers suggested retail pricing (MSRP) values weekly and you can calculate vehicle prices with different options and packages.
