A helpful first step in the purchase process is a pre-approval. Come to Cinfed before you start shopping and get approved for a car loan. This will give you a much better idea of what you can afford. In fact, with Cinfed’s “Fast Lane” program, you literally get a blank check to bring onto the dealer’s lot.
Pre-approval of your financing considerably reduces stress: you already know what you can afford and won’t spend as much time in the finance manager’s office. In addition, you can negotiate with confidence, knowing that your financing is already in place. By completing the “money” side of the car purchasing process up front, you’ll be assured of satisfaction when you cross the finish line.
