Bank vs. Dealer: 5 Things to Remember When Paying for Your Car in Installments

Learn how to go about paying for your new set of wheels in monthly installments. By Paula Bianca Abiog
Next to a house, a car might be the most expensive purchase you’ll get for your family. Like most big-ticket purchases, it takes careful planning and a lot of discussions. It can also be an overwhelming experience, especially if you’re buying a car for the first time. One way to make things easier is to get it through a car loan. Such loans allow you to purchase a car and pay for it in installments. You only need to shell out money for the down payment, and then pay the rest in monthly amortization for a certain number of years. There are two ways to get a car loan: through banks and through vehicle dealers.

Whether you get financing for your dream car through your local bank or a trusted car dealer, weigh your options carefully. And keep in mind that, as long as you keep your credit history good at all times, taking out a car loan is fast and easy.
