Car purchase loans are loans that are taken out with the purpose of owning the car at the end of the loan term. There are car loans available whereby you can defer payments until the end of the term, at which time you will either have to pay the difference, or sell the car, but with car purchase loans, the monthly payments cover the loan amount and the interest so that you will own the car when the loan term is up.
When looking to buy a car, you should shop around to find the best deal, making sure you read any small print attached to the policy so that you are not caught out by fees or early redemption charges.
Good car purchase loans should offer:
- A low APR
- A choice of borrowing – usually between £1,000 and £25,000
- A choice of loan terms – usually between 2 and 8 years
- Fixed monthly repayments
- No fees or charges
- Immediate transfer of funds
