Do You Need Full Coverage on a Used Financed Car?

Tiny car with insurance documents

Choosing the right coverage plan is especially confusing for first-time car buyers. If you’ve got your eye on a used model, you may be wondering how much coverage you really need. Or do you need full coverage on a used financed car at all? In general, you will need full coverage for your used vehicle, but there’s more to know as you negotiate the terms of your loan. In the guide below from the Voss Hyundai finance center, we’ll break down how to finance a used car, how many years you can finance a used car, and more.

Do I Need Full Coverage?

Learning how to finance a used car begins with researching the various auto insurance coverage types available to drivers like you in Centerville. “Full coverage” isn’t a type of coverage. Rather, it refers to the combination of three primary coverages: liability, comprehensive, and collision. Full coverage isn’t required by law in most states, but the vast majority of lenders do ask that you purchase this level of coverage — whether you’re buying a new or used vehicle.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

Many car-buyers choose a longer loan term for the lower monthly payments, but is there a limit on how many years you can finance a used car in Miamisburg? Ultimately, your lender will make that call after considering your debt-to-income ratio and down payment amount.

How to Finance a Used Car

You’ve valued your trade-in, negotiated your loan term and down payment amount, and decided on the right coverage with your lender — so what’s next? At this point, you know nearly everything you need to know about how to finance a used car! All that’s left is to wrap up the paperwork at your dealership. Before you head over, gather the following documentation:

  • Valid Car Insurance Card
  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Proof of Income
  • Documentation for your trade-in value, if applicable
