Question: How Does Finance Work On A Car??

Hire purchase (HP) to finance a new car

Hire purchase is a way of buying a car on finance, where the loan is secured against the car.

You’ll need to pay a deposit of around 10%, then make fixed monthly payments over an agreed time period.

This means you don’t own it until the last payment has been made.

Is it a good idea to finance a car?

Is it better to get a car loan from a bank or dealership?

The good news is that you have options: You can get your car loan from a bank or credit union, or you could go through the dealer. While both have their benefits and considerations, you’re always better off being informed about your financing options before you ask for the keys.

What is a car loan and how does it work?
