What Kind of Insurance Coverage is Needed on a Used Car?

The short answer to, “Do you need full coverage on a used financed car?” is no. Most states don’t require drivers to have full coverage on a used car. However, most dealers want to protect their investment and therefore require full coverage on a used or new vehicle before driving off the lot.

When you finance a new or used vehicle, your financing agreement will spell out the terms, along with how long the dealer will own the title. If your loan says 36 months, then you’ll own the title after that period, assuming you paid the entire loan amount. Most dealerships require that you have full coverage on your new or used vehicle until you own the vehicle outright.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

Terms and rates can vary depending on the lender. Banks often put limits on their used car financing, which is why financing with a dealership can be advantageous. Financing your next vehicle in Decatur with the help of our finance professionals takes the guesswork out of how long you’ll finance your used car for.

How to Finance a Used Car

Once you’ve found a vehicle on our lot, head over to our finance office with the following paperwork:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Valid Car Insurance Card
  • Any supporting financial documentation (i.e. last two pay stubs)
  • Any existing vehicle documentation for your current vehicle (if applicable)

Our finance team will use your information to find the best loan agreement based on your credit history. After you’ve been paired with a lender, we’ll walk you through the rate, terms, and answer any questions.
