Car Loans From Your Bank

When deciding on where to get a car loan, you might think of trying your local bank around Romeoville first. Speaking with your dealership before applying at your bank is actually a good idea because each dealership has different financing partners. If you have less-than-perfect credit, you will have a harder time getting a loan with a bank. Despite this, there are some benefits, including:

  • You have a pre-existing relationship with your bank
  • There are often set interest rates
  • You may be able to set a flexible payment schedule
