You’re planning your next road trip with your best friend, but you hit a speed bump: you need a new car. Public transportation is convenient, but can’t get you everywhere you need to go. A new car will break the bank, so what are you to do?

Don’t Ride Alone

When you’re looking for an auto loan, you need to make sure you’re with the right people. If you don’t feel comfortable with the bank/credit union, you should leave. Just because a consultant is giving you their time, doesn’t mean you owe them a loan contract.
