The advantages of an auto loan are well documented:

  • You don't have to dip into your savings or drain your available cashflow.
  • You get to decide how much your monthly installment will be.
  • You do not have to provide any collateral (besides the vehicle itself).
  • You can get approved without a down payment.
  • Your credit score will improve thanks to positive payment history.
  • You'll own the car at the end of the term (compared to leasing).
  • Nowadays, you DO NOT need a good credit score to get approved (more on this point below).
