Understanding Car Loans

Finding a car loan in London Ontario should be stress free and easy.
There are three main components used when calculating your car loan:


Principal is money that you originally agree to pay back. In the automotive industry this refers to the total cost of a vehicle, including any fees that a lender or dealership may have for the car loan.


The term is the length of time that you will be making payments on your loan. Terms are usually between 36 and 72 months. Shorter and longer terms are possible but other factors come into consideration.

Interest Rate

The interest rate on a car loan is the percentage that the lender is charging you to borrow money. These rates vary depending on what type of vehicle you choose and the risk perceived by the lender.

When you apply for financing for a vehicle you are getting a loan directly from a bank, dealership, or credit union to buy the full value of the vehicle. The term, the interest rate, and monthly payments can be negotiated. There are many benefits to financing a vehicle from Slash My Rate which include:
