Best Ways to Refinance an Auto Loan

When you refinance a car loan, you lower the interest rate of your monthly loan payments. If you’d like to learn how to refinance a car loan, you’ll first want to confirm what you’re currently paying each month.

Next, gather the necessary documentation, which includes the car title, proof of registration and insurance, and any banking and credit history. Once you have these together, your loan provider will have everything they need. Here are the next steps you’ll need to take:

  • Take a Look at Your Credit Score: Knowing your credit score is one of the best ways to refinance an auto loan easily. If you have a good habit of making payments on time and have few to no late fees, your credit score will typically go up. The higher the credit score, the lower the interest rate.
  • Apply: You’ll want to apply to several different auto refinancing companies to compare and get the best rate possible. To ensure that your credit score isn’t dinged by too many hard pulls, submit all applications within 14 days.
  • Compare Offers: Compare every available offer so you’ll know exactly what you’ll pay each month. To get even more help with monthly payment estimates, you can use our payment calculator.
  • Create a Loan Term: The length of your loan term will depend on which payment options are better for you. A longer loan term will mean smaller monthly payments but higher interest rates. A shorter loan term will mean larger monthly payments but smaller interest rates.

Other Things to Know When Refinancing Your Car

We have a few tips on the best ways to refinance an auto loan, however, these depend on your situation. Once you’re ready to get the process started, apply for financing online. Here are a few other tips to keep in mind when refinancing a car loan:

  • Fees and Penalties: Check out the details of your old car loan to be sure there are no fees or penalties for paying it off early.
  • Financial Situation: If what you still owe on your car is worth more than the car itself, then it will be hard to get refinanced.
  • Vehicle Age: The older your vehicle is and the more depreciation that has occurred, the harder it is to get refinanced.
