ouch 84 months...  Just gotta sak why as would never consider something over 60 months..  Cognrats none-the-less of the majority of the approval


Great Questions!

 

I have no auto loan history on my credit report and it's been VERY difficult to get a financial institution to finance the full 54k balance. I have high scores 710+ FICO 8 but "limited credit experience" as most FI's are stating. Now I understand I could save up a 10+% downpayment and it would be more financially smart but I think everybody has different strokes lol. So, my approval chances increased drastically when I choose 84/months instead of 60/months after speaking with NFCU. I'll be making $800/month payments which will decrease my loan term by 26/months and put me back in 60/month term. I do understand I could have possibly got a lower interest rate with 60/months but that's for my next car as we all gotta start off somewhere right!

 

Trust me I know there are 100+ different ways I could have done this but I guess I don't mind the pain in this way lol.

 

P.S—(If you know a bank/CU that will finance the full 54k for me with "limited credit experience" let me know myFICO FAM! I have student loans, credit cards, and a clean report. I know that's probably not enough DP's but DM me and maybe we can talk.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: The loan process took less time than the freaking negotiation with the car dealer.  Very nice folk and easy to work with.  Note: They did charge me an extra 1% because of a paid collection in 2017 that was not (quite) two years old. Annoying, but acceptable. Otherwise, their rate would have been exceptional.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY:  Capital One had approved me at 5.63%.  Dealer offered extended warranty for a 1% off the interest rate.  I keep cars a long time (I traded in a 2006 Armada) and I know things go crazy after the factory warranty, so I went for it.  Otherwise, I would not have bought the EW.


Congratulations!  I love the Toyota Highlander.  I'm sure you maintain your vehicles anyway, but you will find your Toytoa Highlander problem-free as far any big issues arising after warranty.  My sister has a Toyota 2005 4Runner, she bought in 2006 with very low miles, and it has never been serviced for any major problems beyond routine maintenance, etc.,  and is still going strong.  She's getting ready to get a new vehicle, as in a one-year-old vehicle, and insists it will be the Toytoa 4Runner again.  Her whole family (husband - 2015 Avalon/daughter - 2018 RAV 4) are Toyota converts now.

GAP is inexpensive. However, there are some insurers that do not sell GAP coverage. For example, my own insurer, GEICO, does not sell GAP coverage.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: Pre approved with Logix. Lexus dealer also pulled, "without permission" Lexus and BofA (experian hard pulls), Chase (Transunion hard pull) and Ally (experian hard pull). My auto enhanced score was 763 (used by Lexus) but Logix didn't use that.  I say "without permission" because I made it clear that I was pre approved and had no intention of using any other financing.  They pulled BofA and Ally 2 days after I already had the car.  Logix credit union was great to deal with but I think they only finance cars in CA (not 100% positive).
