Once a person has given a valid proof of these conditions to the financing firm, them he/she can avail the benefits from the concerned authority.

        3. While applying for the car loan, people can also make changes in the loan amount, interest rates and duration to create a flexible repayment plan for themselves. One should always calculate the exact amount of loan needed for the purchase of the car and then only make further decisions. It is generally advised to opt for loan in case the amount is higher and not if it is even half of the amount of the car.
        4. One should also make a note of the current interest rate and then determine the rate, which he/she can afford. People can make use of the auto calculator option provided by almost all of the banks and financing companies.

People are advised to not just stop at the dealership and take all the decisions regarding loan options.
