Simplified shopping

When you’re pre-approved, you’ll know exactly how much you can borrow and what your interest rate will be. This makes it easy to calculate what your monthly payments will be and makes it easy to shop for a car that fits in your budget.

If you find a used vehicle with the right make, model, color, mileage, and price, it’s unlikely there’s another one on the lot like it. And if you miss your chance, you could be looking for a long time. Lock in your top choice by getting pre-approved online.

Frequently asked questions

I’m a first-time buyer. Can you help me get approved?

Absolutely! Our car loan financing experts can get you approved with any credit score or history — including no credit score or history! We make it easy to understand your options and build your credit with our guaranteed financing approvals.

I’ve been turned down for credit before. Can I still get approved?

Yes, you can! We offer guaranteed car loan financing for any credit score or situation. Even a history of bankruptcy or repossession is no problem for us! If you’ve been turned away by other dealerships, come to Coastal Auto Group and let us get you approved!

What factors determine your monthly car loan payment?

There are three basic factors in determining how much your monthly car loan payment will be. 1.) The total loan amount. This is the price of the vehicle plus things like tax, title, and licensing and minus your down payment and any trade-in value. 2.) Your interest rate. Your credit score is the main determiner of your interest rate. The higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate. The lower your interest rate, the less you spend paying back the loan. 3.) Your loan term. A shorter term loan means higher monthly payments, but a lower overall cost. A long loan term will shrink your monthly payment amount, but will cost you more over the life of the loan.

Why would I get pre-approved before car shopping?

Your car is likely one of the most expensive purchases you’re going to make. If you’re not planning to pay entirely in cash, you’ll need car loan financing to help make up the difference between the price of the car and the amount of money you have. If you go car shopping before getting pre-approved, you won’t know how much you can borrow and may waste time looking at cars that aren’t in your budget.

Can I get pre-approved from my bank?

If you’d rather work with your bank or credit union, we’re happy to work with them, too! We work with a lot of top local and national lenders so we suggest that you also chat with our financing department, either online or at the dealership, before making your final decision to see if we can’t get you a better rate or more favorable loan terms.
