Brampton car loan FAQs

No. With our car loan service, you can only buy a vehicle from the dealership offering you the financing.
The increasing popularity of longer auto loans is leading many Canadians to purchase more expensive vehicles. Longer loans result in lower monthly payments, which entices some buyers to spend more money on a vehicle than they otherwise would.
Here’s an example: the monthly payments on a $12,000, 36-month car loan would be roughly the same as on a $24,000, 72-month loan. What some buyers forget is that they’ll be paying off the more expensive vehicle for an additional 3 years, during which time they’ll still be charged interest and will need to pay for all the repairs and maintenance that older vehicles require.
We encourage car buyers in Brampton (and everywhere else) to follow this simple rule: if you can only afford the vehicle you’re interested in by taking a really long car loan term, then it’s probably too expensive.
As mentioned above, longer loan terms will mean smaller monthly payments, but the amount of interest you pay will be much higher. If you can get by with a shorter term, it’s a good idea to consider one. If you’re not able to afford a higher monthly payment, then a longer term will reduce the strain on your pocketbook from month to month.

Brampton car loan tips
While your monthly car loan payments will be higher, a shorter loan term will save you money on interest and get you out of debt sooner.
The Motor Vehicle Dealers Act and the Consumer Protection Act give you legal rights and protections when you purchase your car through a registered dealership.
Make sure you test the vehicle you’re considering purchasing. This should be done in daylight and should include a variety of roadways. Make sure you operate the vehicle at highway speeds too: the 410 and 401 are good options for testing your car’s performance at 100 km/h in Brampton.
Being underwater on your car loan happens when the market value of your vehicle is less than what is still owed on your loan. Avoid this situation by not spending a large sum on a vehicle that's depreciating rapidly and by taking a shorter loan that you can pay off more quickly.
