The Facts About Financing a Used Car

When you buy a used vehicle from a Hendersonville dealership, most states won’t require you to drive off the lot with full insurance coverage. However, your lender might require you to purchase full coverage insurance for the duration of your loan. Finance lenders are known for requiring full coverage insurance to protect their investment. Additionally, the state of North Carolina also requires drivers to have liability insurance coverage for their vehicle to drive on Black Mountain streets.

When you finance a vehicle — whether it’s new or used — there are term agreements that discuss how many years you’ll pay a lender before you’re able to receive a title. This means if you apply for financing and receive a loan term of 36 months, your lender will hold the vehicle’s title for that period of time.

In most cases, full coverage insurance coverage will be required for the duration of your auto loan. If we use the example above, that would mean your vehicle would need full coverage auto insurance for 36 months — or until your loan is paid off.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

When you finance a used vehicle from Hyundai of Asheville, your loan term will depend on a number of factors, such as your credit score and how much you’re able to put down as a down payment.
