Both of our cars are getting old. My husband’s car is now 13 years old and mine is turning 8 years old this year. The miles are definitely adding up on both. It’s time for us to start looking for something newer, and summer is the perfect time to do just that.
I’ve discovered the best way to car shop and you can do nearly all of it from home with Capital One! They’ve developed Capital One® Auto Navigator® to make financing and car buying easy by allowing consumers to pre-qualify for auto financing and see their financing terms before even visiting a dealer.
You can do it all in one place, before visiting the dealer, and it doesn’t even impact your credit score! You can even build an offer and see how the financing terms change based on your needs. My husband and I did it together to start our car shopping.
After filling out the short forms, we pre-qualified for more than I want to spend. We tend to buy used vehicles with low mileage to save on cost. It’s amazing how much a car’s price is knocked down from brand new to having a few miles on it. It can really save you some money.
Auto Navigator allows you to personalize monthly payments and APR while you shop for cars at local dealerships, so I could increase or decrease the different terms to get the monthly payment we want.
We were able to see tons of cars in our price range from so many dealers around us. With Capital One® Auto Navigator® you can browse more than 3 million cars from over 12,000 participating dealers in your area and across the country.
We were able to see dealer ratings and car reviews all in the same place. Plus, we could make our offer all set before heading into the dealer for the car we want.
When you’ve been pre-qualified and are ready to shop, you just simply bring the offer summary to a participating dealership and submit a credit application to finalize the financing. Using the Capital One® Auto Navigator® makes car buying so much easier and so convenient!
