The reasons banks take so long

If you decide to finance a car purchase through your bank, you can make an appointment with a loan officer who reviews your application. 

If you opt for auto finance from a bank, there can be a lot of back and forth with paperwork between the bank and dealership.

Altogether, it typically takes two or three appointments over the span of three to seven days (or more) to get auto financing at a bank.

It can take even longer to get approved for a bank loan if your credit is less than stellar, and the banks will often decline your credit application.

Fortunately—thanks to the rise of financial technology—banks aren't the only place to go when you need a car loan...
