Auto Dealer Financing Fact or Fiction

FICTION: In order to qualify for auto dealership financing, you must purchase an extended warranty at the time of purchase. Salesmen often hint that spending more money on an extended warranty or other add-ons will help you qualify or save on financing at the car dealer.

FACT: Don't fall for this sales ploy. Purchasing add-ons or an extended auto warranty will never increase your chances of being approved for dealer financing. Qualifying for financing depends on three numbers and only three numbers: the purchase price of the vehicle, your down-payment or trade-in and your credit score. Take your time and look for the best warranty coverage, from a reliable company and at a fair price.
