Information About Ogden Used Cars: Qualifying and Affording

It is easy for anyone to buy a used car they can't really afford—even if you're normally a smart consumer. By spending too much you may not only have to cut back on things; you could be putting your financial security at risk. If you go into a used car sales knowing this, you are one step ahead, and to make absolute sure this doesn’t happen to you, there are some steps to follow.

The first step before buying a used car is to obtain your credit report. There are three national credit reporting agencies that gather the information. The recently passed Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act actually allows every consumer to get a free yearly credit report. It is important to know your credit score, as this will affect financing on the used car.

Debt-to-income ratio is an equation to gauge your ability to repay the loan on your used car. To find this, add up all monthly installment payments (car and credit card payments, but not rent, mortgage or utilities). Divide the total by your monthly take-home pay, after taxes and other withholdings have been subtracted. The resulting percentage is your debt-to-income ratio. You should keeping your debt-to-income ratio below 15 percent. If your ratio is lower than 20 percent, you are likely to get a car loan, but still make sure you really can afford it. Used car buyers get in trouble by not clearly realizing the difference between qualifying for a loan and being able to afford one. Qualifying for a used car loan only requires satisfying the bank's protocol on financial means to repay it. Lending institutions use different formulas to determine this, so the results can be different. This means, don’t depend on anyone else, but yourself, to know your true used car budget.
