Pre-Approved Auto Loans Vs. Conventional Auto Loans

Posted by Jesse Shand On Apr - 30 - 2017

A pre-approved auto loan is different from a conventional auto loan because you are approved for a loan on a car before you ever walk onto the lot. Auto loan pre-approval allows you to enter the dealership knowing what you can afford and what interest rate you will pay. You won’t waste time considering cars that you won’t qualify to buy.

Conventional Auto Loans

When you rely on conventional auto financing, you usually choose the vehicle you’re interested in, decide how much you are willing to put toward a down payment and then borrow the remainder of the purchase price.

Mr. Phillips, basing his comments off the language of our Constitution, questioned whether Americans who rent should be allowed to vote. blogger Peter Miller published the text version of Mr. Phillips’ comments (which were made on Tea Party Nation Radio):

As Judson Phillips explains, the Founding Fathers “put certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote. It wasn’t you were just a citizen and you got to vote. Some of the restrictions, you know, you obviously would not think about today. But one of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community. If you’re
