Frequently Asked Questions - financing a car

What does it mean to finance the purchase of a car?

When you finance a car, you're essentially taking out a loan to pay for the vehicle. The terms of the loan will vary depending on the lender, but typically you'll make fortnightly or monthly payments over a period of several years. The interest rate on the loan will also play a role in how much you end up paying for the car overall.

There are a few different ways to finance a car purchase. One is to get a loan from a bank or another financial institution. This can be a good option if you have good credit and can qualify for a low interest rate. Another option is to use dealer financing. This is when you get the loan through the dealership where you're buying the car. The dealer may offer special financing deals that can save you money.

Whatever option you choose, be sure to shop around and compare interest rates before you commit to a loan. This will help you get the best deal possible and avoid paying more than you need to for your new car.

We can help you compare lenders, calculate repayments and apply online for car finance. With carbar, it doesn't have to be complicated!

How long does car finance approval take?

It really depends on the lender and your financial situation

If you have good credit, you can expect to get approved fairly quickly. However, if you have bad credit, it could take a few days or even weeks to get approved for a loan. So, it really varies depending on your particular case.

At carbar, we understand that time is of the essence when it comes to financing and securing a new car. That's why we have partnered with CarClarity to offer help with quick and easy online approvals for car finance.

The team works with a variety of lenders and will support you through every step of the car loan application process.

They’ll take the time to understand your needs and help you find the best car loan deals and set you up to have your loan approved in as little as 24 hours (may vary lender to lender).

Finance vs Lease. What is the difference?

There are a few key differences between financing and leasing a car.

When you finance a car, you're actually taking out a loan to purchase the vehicle outright. This means that you'll eventually own the car once the loan is paid off.

With leasing, on the other hand, you're essentially renting the vehicle for a set period of time; once the lease is up, you'll have to return the car or buy it outright with a balloon payment.

There are pros and cons to both financing and leasing a car.

Finance contracts tend to be more flexible than leases, allowing you to customise your monthly payments and loan terms to fit your budget.

Leases, on the other hand, usually have lower monthly payments and allow you to drive a newer car with little or no money down. However, at the end of a lease you will not own the car unless you pay a lump sum to purchase it.

Is getting finance on a car a good idea?

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the decision of whether or not to finance a car depends on a variety of factors specific to each individual.

However, in general, getting finance on a car can be a good idea if you're able to get a good interest rate and you plan on staying in the same vehicle for a number of years.

That said, it's important to be aware of the potential pitfalls involved in car finance. For example, if you miss a payment or default on your loan, you could end up losing your car and facing significant penalties and fees.

So before making any decisions about finance, it's important to do your research and understand all the risks involved.
