Person-to-person car loans typically have higher
interest rates than new and used car loans purchased at

get a copy of your credit report before applying for
any type of loan. It is important to make sure your
information is accurate and up-to-date to ensure that
you receive the best rates and terms for your financing.
Available loan terms for private party purchases are

New car loans are generally available for up to 72

becoming upside-down on your car loan. Learn more on
