When can I apply for an auto loan if the car is being built at the factory based on my order.

I ordered a new car at the dealer and placed a deposit. It's been about 2 weeks and the car still doesn't technically exist, however I am watching the build status daily. I don't yet have an expected completion date, delivery date or VIN. When can I apply for an auto loan from DCU. Because of the state of the car, the dealer cannot give a purchase sale agreement yet, I only have receipts for deposits made.

Hi, I just did exactly what you are doing. All I needed was a paystub and the Sales agreement after I completed the online application. The paystub was easy but I needed to wait until a VIN was assigned to the vehicle before submitting the sales agreement. Sounds like you already have a VIN.

Any fees associated with an auto loan?

Are there any fees associated with an auto loan? (Service fees, paperwork fees, one time fees etc..) Anything that would alter the monthly payment amount that was given to me when I applied and was approved online for my loan?

If I were to buy a 2004 Volvo fot 13.5K and needed a loan, would i qualify? how much could I get?

Asked by: Anonymous
you could qualify for the whole amount. However your interest rates might be high. You will get better rates if you put some money down. This is my personal opinion from personal experience. Call DCU for confirmation.

You will probably get a loan at a higher rate , provided you have a co-signer.
